Form & Substance

Cooking and serving are a matter of aesthetics, style, balance and composition as well as establishing a strong relationship between form and substance. Students will learn how to match food flawlessly and serve it impeccably. Not everyone can aspire to become great “chefs de cuisine” or “maître d'hôtel” but great “executive chefs” e “head waiters” can hide in everyone. The excellent cuisine and haute cuisine are not a match for those who show fear: you must have a vivid imagination, be bold, try seemingly "useless or impossible" combinations blind to most and learn how not to set limits because you are what you are. Discover and defend the new.
