Up Your Game

The culinary industry is constantly changing. To stay competitive, you have to stay current. That’s why ICC, a global leader in education for more than 30 years, has created a three-day program—with an option to trail for a night in a highly rated NYC restaurant*—expressly for professionals who want to gain an edge in the marketplace.

Taught by veteran chef-instructors at ICC’s flagship NYC location, this course offers advanced instruction in two relevant areas: modern ingredients and technology and classic pastry techniques for contemporary plated desserts. Whether you are considering a new venture, updating your menu or you simply want to up your game, our hands-on intensive will take you to the next level.

Day One:

Students will make a forcemeat that will be used in making a duck galantine.  Our chef-instructors will introduce you to the world of modern culinary technology (for example, cooking the forcemeat using an immersion circulator to achieve optimal cooking temperature), and  cover equipment and principles such as sous vide,  iSi canisters, smoking guns and HACCP for Safety.

Next, students will shape and combine proteins together using transglutaminase (meat glue), and then, after butchering a chicken, use that knowledge to re-configure and create a modern example of a roasted chicken.

Day Two:

Students will bring a classic recipe, such as roasted beets and goat cheese salad, into the 21st century by employing a variety of hydrocolloids and modern techniques.  They will use equipment (such as siphons) to bring enhanced flavor and color to vegetables.  Students will take what they’ve made and complete the chicken dish from day one, using modern plating techniques. The day concludes with a demo and tasting of a modern cocktail, using a centrifuge to clarify the juice, sous vide to infuse flavor.

Day Three:

On the final day, you’ll perfect techniques such as folding, piping, saucing and single-spoon quenelle shaping. You will create various garnishes, learn how to prepare sorbets in a batch freezer—utilizing proper sanitation—and create seasonal desserts. Chef-instructors will cover the components and development of modern plated desserts with a focus on texture development and flavor pairing.

Trail:

*Students in our advanced chef training program are eligible to participate in a one-night trail, arranged by ICC, at one of New York City’s highly regarded restaurants. If you are interested, please email the Admission Department (apply@culinarycenter.com) to request your trail by January 5, and select a date between January 12 and January 18. Trails cannot be rescheduled and trails requested after January 5 are not guaranteed.

Tuition and Prerequisites:
  • Supplies
  • NOTE: One year of experience in a professional culinary environment (for example, a professional kitchen), or degree from a career culinary program; knowledge of basic knife skills and techniques required.

Charcuterie & Pâtés

Imagine setting out beautifully arranged plates of pâtés, saucisson and prosciutto —all made at home in your very own kitchen. At ICC, you can learn elements of the craft of the charcutier, a trade that has been around for centuries. Getting a taste of life as a charcutier doesn’t have to take a big bite out of your schedule, however; by simply following our trademark Total ImmersionSM training method, you’ll be amazed by how much you’ll gain in just 15 class hours. Don your own set chef’s whites, enter our professional kitchens and listen as chef-instructors share the techniques, tips and trade secrets that took them years to learn.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

You’ll walk away with hands-on knowledge to make fresh-cured bacon, prosciutto, fresh and dry-cured sausages, pâtés, pork rillettes and duck and ham confit. Among the subjects discussed will be the traditions of charcuterie; an overview of pig anatomy and butchery; methods used to salt, smoke and cure meats; and techniques of working with seasonings, casings and more.
