Not everyone has the time and finances to pursue their dreams of culinary greatness. In fact, between responsibilities at work and at home, many individuals miss out on doing what they really love – refining and mastering their skills in the kitchen. There are even a few topics that at-home cooks might avoid altogether, such as meat fabrication and seafood preparation, as it simply seems far too complex to navigate without formal guidance. This is where short courses are so useful, as they condense plenty of useful information into a short period of time, making these skills far more accessible to most people.
Why Short Courses Are Sought After
Ideally, one would be able to study towards the qualification of one’s choice, but this is not always possible for everyone. Here at the Prue Leith Culinary Institute, we continue to invest in our full-time and part-time students, but we do understand that high-quality training for everyone should be accessible, too. As the top culinary school in South Africa, we have spent years developing our programmes for aspiring chefs, pâtissiers, and masters of cuisine. We have also extended this same expertise to our short courses, and made skills such as meat fabrication, cake decorating, and even elegant plating available to anyone seeking to improve their culinary competency. Some benefits of our short courses include:
