Every successful career is built on a foundation of knowledge and experiences gained from a variety of sources. Before you can aspire to the top of your profession, you must first develop the core competencies you require to be successful. That is really the guiding principle behind the Cook Basic Level 1 Program at Kitchener’s Liaison College ( http://www.liaisonkitchener.ca).

When you decide you want a career in the culinary arts but aren’t quite sure where to begin, there is no better starting point than the Cook Basic Level 1 Program. This is a practical 300 hour program that provides you with both valuable theory and extensive hands-on training in classic culinary techniques. With a curriculum designed by certified chefs, the Cook Basic Level 1 Program meets the needs of any student that wants to quickly gain real-world training and find work as a cook.

Your training includes all the key elements you’ll need for success in the industry ( http://www.liaisoncollege.com/pdfs/course_outline_basicCook-download.pdf). For example, in the culinary techniques area of study you will learn about all types of cookery including stock, sauces, short order, eggs and breakfast and even fish and shellfish. You will learn the fundamentals of basic nutrition and develop the ability to identify ingredients. In terms of kitchen management, you will learn basic menu development, marketing techniques, kitchen calculations and ordering. For those of you who aspire to becoming bakers, the Cook Basic Level 1 Program also introduces you to baking theory including leavening agents, sugar commodities, flour production and application, piping batters and bread dough production. The program offers you a comprehensive overall of all the basic skills you will need to land your first job.
