The key to your setting your domestic worker up with the necessary skills to perform well in the kitchen follows two basic principles:

  • Empower them by building confidence
  • Provide them with a good knowledge of basic cooking skills

This course gives your domestic worker with hands-on training using a variety of tried and tested recipes to put into practice in your own homes.  Students are taught a variety of dishes, kitchen skills, how to use equipment correctly, kitchen etiquette and the correct techniques and cooking methods used to prepare delicious meals.  On completion of the course, delegates receive a certificate.
