Cook or Be Cooked: Your Culinary Life

We’ll view three videos, each focusing on a chef at a different level in the culinary world. The focus will be on a line chef, a sous chef, and on one of the premier chefs in the world (Thomas Keller, chef at the French Laundry in Yountville, CA). Each chef will talk about what they do on an everyday basis. Students will learn about the rewards and the difficulties of working in culinary. These are real-world portraits that feature culinary concepts like echoing and the brigade system. We’ll introduce each video and take time to explain some of the culinary terms. Ultimately, students will take away a sense of what it takes to succeed in the exciting world of culinary. The presentation is recommended for current culinary students and those students who are considering entering the culinary profession.
