Kitchen Skills – Level II
After level I, the Time Out Academy is now starting its second-level Kitchen Skills Cookery Course, for all those who want to consolidate the knowledge they’ve amassed so far, but also develop in terms of technique and in recognising different textures and tastes.
Organised by level and subdivided into various sessions, this course enables participants to learn the basics of cooking and its techniques, so that they reach the end of each level with the solid knowledge necessary to progress in the art of cooking. The course combines the teaching of techniques with practical examples, applied in recipes that you will prepare and then taste at the end of the lesson, to become a veritable master chef.
