What is Culinary Arts?

Culinary Arts is the art of preparing, cooking and presenting food.

Have you been a fan of MasterChef and Hell’s Kitchen? Not because of Gordon Ramsey and his impeccable hair, but for the food that’s cooked. Are you the self-appointed chef at home, the kitchen is your very own personal white canvas in which you deep fry and fricassee all kinds of meat and wonderful little sauces? If so, then you may want to consider studying culinary arts.

The tasks of a chef are varied, depending on the type of food served and where they work. However, chefs can generally be thought of as the head boss within a kitchen. In addition to cooking, chefs will plan the menu, choose and inspect ingredients, supervise the kitchen staff and handle any other food related issues relating to the kitchen.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Culinary Arts course?

Creative

There seem to be new restaurants popping out everywhere these days. Blink and you’ll miss it! But with so much competition, you’ll need to be really creative, both in the way you mesh your ingredients together to create your masterpiece on a plate AND with your presentation.

Good Manager

In a kitchen, things get hot and heated almost in an instant. While the scenes from Hell’s Kitchen may be a slight exaggeration, it’s worth noting it CAN be that chaotic. As such, you need to be able to manage everyone well, no matter how big or small the role they play.

Good with your hands

You need to be good with knives. You need to be fast with knives. And no, you can’t choose either, it has to be both. If you lack dexterity and composure, you better work on that now and maybe one day you’ll be able to cut up a giant Alaskan Salmon in suit without dropping even a drop on it.

Inquisitive/Curious

As a culinary artist in the modern world, you have to be curious to the ingredients you use. The latest and greatest concoctions that have been birthed in 3 Michelin starred restaurants around the world were the result of chefs being curious, mixing and matching until hey found the perfect combination.
