The certificate consists of the 7 courses for a total of 54 hours. These hands-on classes progress quickly from basic foundational skills to more advanced precision techniques that are the basis for creating any style of cuisine.

Classes are held in our state of the art culinary kitchen at our Bethlehem location and taught by professionally trained chefs.
