Domestic Staff Classes; The Cookery School at CAARA
Our domestic staff classes are led in Hindi. Classes are interactive, combining practice and theory in cooking, presenting and serving Western menus. The focus lies on laying foundations for a thorough understanding of kitchen hygiene, food handling, storage and freezing guidelines, preparation, time management and food presentation and includes looking at balanced diets and dishes which compliment each other. Your staff will return from the classes able to cook simple but delicious 3-course menus to the highest standards.
The classes will be led by our Hindi speaking Head Chef, Lokesh Swami.
Domestic Staff Classes include the following
- Food hygiene; hand washing, colour co-ordinated boards
- Food handling; storage, freezing, refreezing and knife skills
- Kitchen time management; how to coordinate making several courses within a timeframe
- Preparing foods alongside each other, not mixing up with the equipment and cooking in a hygienic, organized and tidy way.
