Escoffier Online Culinary and Baking and Pastry Training


MMMM WHO CAN RESIST THESE DELECTABLE DISHES
WE HAVE THIS MORNING? EVERYTHING LOOKS SO GOOD. AND SO YOU HAVE NO CULINARY SKILLS,
ARE YOU REALLY TELLING ME THAT? WELL, NOT TO WORRY. YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
WE’LL TELL YOU HOW YOU CAN LEARN TO PREPARE A DISH THAT WILL LEAD THEM COMING BACK FOR
MORE RIGHT FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN KITCHEN. GET READY TO FIND YOUR INNER CHEF.
OUR GUEST TODAY IS CHEF CANDY WALLACE. SHE’S THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE AMERICAN PERSONAL
AND PRIVATE CHEF ASSOCIATION AND MEMBER OF ESCOFFIER ONLINE INTERNATIONAL CULINARY ACADEMY
ADVISORY BOARD. I’M SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU ON THE SHOW. QUITE A TITLE YOU HAVE THERE.
THANK YOU! IT’S A MOUTHFUL, ISN’T IT? (LAUGHS)
YOU KNOW, I GREW UP IN THE SOUTH AND COOKING HAS BEEN SO IMPORTANT. YOU KNOW, PART OF MY
UPBRINGING BUT I HAVE MY SIGNATURE DISHES BUT THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING TO LEARN RIGHT?
OH, THAT’S THE WONDERFUL THING ABOUT THE WORLD OF COOKING. THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING EXCITING
AND DELICIOUS TO LEARN. YOU KNOW, HAVING BASIC SKILLS IN THE KITCHEN
OF COURSE, GOES A LONG WAY. BUT MAYBE YOU WANT TO TAKE IT A LITTLE FURTHER WITH A CAREER
IN MAYBE CULINARY ARTS AND SO MANY WOMEN DREAM OF OWNING A RESTAURANT OR A CAFE OR HAVING
A CATERING BUSINESS. BUT LET’S FACE IT, WE ARE BUSY AND IT SOUNDS EXPENSIVE TO ME.
WELL, YOU’RE RIGHT. THERE CAN BE SEVERAL DIFFERENT CONCERNS. ONE IS TIME AND THE OTHER IS EXPENSE.
BUT NOW IT’S POSSIBLE TO USE AN ONLINE LEARNING PROGRAM LIKE THE PROGRAMS AVAILABLE THROUGH
THE ESCOFFIER ONLINE INTERNATIONAL CULINARY ACADEMY.
THAT IS SO GREAT TO HEAR. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT ESCOFFIER A LITTLE BIT LATER BUT IN MORE DETAIL.
BUT FIRST I WANT TO INTRODUCE A STAR STUDENT. I WANT EVERYBODY TO MEET KRISTA WHO IS OUT
THERE IN THE PREP KITCHEN WORKING HER MAGIC. KRISTA! LOOKING GOOD!
IT LOOKS GREAT. (SIZZLING)
COME ON OUT KRISTA. OH!
I’D LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO KRISTA WHO IS ONE OF OUR RECENT GRADUATES OF THE ONLINE
COURSE THROUGH ESCOFFIER. AND KRISTA COMPLETED HER PROGRAM IN 7 MONTHS AND IS NOW WORKING
IN THE INDUSTRY. FANTASTIC.
HOW DID YOU ENJOY IT? THAT’S RIGHT. IT WAS FANTASTIC, JULIE.
ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I’VE EVER MADE. I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A FOODIE. I COME FROM A FAMILY
OF FOODIES. WE ARE ALL PRETTY GOOD COOKS BUT I REALLY WANTED TO LEARN MORE AND FRANKLY
I WANTED SOME CREDENTIALS. AND WHEN I WENT LOOKING FOR A PROGRAM I NEEDED SOMETHING THAT
WAS GOING TO WORK WITH MY FULL TIME JOB, WITH MY FAMILY, WITH MY HOME. AND I STUMBLED ACROSS
ESCOFFIER AND I KNEW I WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE. AND I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE A QUALITY PROGRAM
AND IT WORKED AROUND MY SCHEDULE. AND THE BEST THING, IT DIDN’T COST A FORTUNE.
UNBELIEVABLE. ALSO, WHAT DID YOU PREPARE FOR US?
I’VE PREPARED FOR YOU ONE OF MY FAVORITES ASSIGNMENTS. THIS IS THE PAN SEARED SALMON
WITH HERB VEGETABLES. AND WE VERY CAREFULLY SEARED OUR SALMON TO GET A NICE CRUST ON IT
AND THE INSIDE STAYED SO MOIST AND TENDER. AND WE CUT OUR VEGETABLES INTO A BEAUTIFUL
BATENET CUT WITHE BEAUTIFUL BALSAMIC GLAZE AROUND THE EDGES.
I THINK THAT’S AN A+ RIGHT THERE. (LAUGHS)
I CAN’T WAIT TO TASTE THIS DISH LATER ON. BUT FIRST WHAT ARE SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS
OF THE PROGRAM? WELL, ACCESSIBILITY AND AFFORDABILITY ARE
TWO OF THE REALLY BIG REASONS WHY PEOPLE WOULD CONSIDER DOING AN ONLINE PROGRAM. SUCH AS
ESCOFFIER. BOTH FOR CULINARY OR BAKING AND PASTRY OR PERHAPS EVEN BOTH.
THE PROGRAMS ARE COMPLETELY SELF PACED. SO, YOU CAN CREATE A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT
YOU CAN CONTROL WORKING ONE ON ONE WITH A PROFESSIONAL CHEF MENTOR. WHO IS GOING TO
ADVISE YOU AND GRADE YOU AND PROPEL YOU THROUGH THE PROGRAM. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FLEXIBILITY.
YOU KNOW, WE DO LOVE FLEXIBILITY BUT HOW DO YOU REALLY LEARN TO COOK ONLINE? EXPLAIN THAT
TO ME. ACTUALLY, AN ONLINE PROGRAM WORKS VERY EASILY.
THE STUDENTS START WITH THE WRITTEN MATERIAL ONLINE AND REVIEW IT AND THEN THE WORK WITH
A SERIES OF SELF QUIZZES TO ENSURE THE FACT THAT THEY UNDERSTAND THE WRITTEN MATERIAL
BEFORE THEY MOVE ON TO PREPARING FOR THE ASSIGNED RECIPE. WHICH IS NEXT.
THEY WILL WORK WITH A SERIES OF PRE-PREPARED KEY STEPS BY TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS THAT THEY
WILL BE ABLE TO UPLOAD AND FORWARD TO THEIR PROFESSIONAL CHEF MENTOR AT THE ONLINE CAMPUS.
SO, THAT THE CHEF CAN REVIEW THE PROCESS AND CHECK THERE TECHNIQUE AND REVIEW THEIR PERSONAL
ASSESSMENT OF THE PROCESS ITSELF AND ALSO READ THEIR FLAVOR JOURNALS BEFORE WORKING
WITH THE STUDENT ONE ON ONE. IT’S A REALLY SIMPLE PROCESS.
REALLY? THERE’S A LOT OF GREAT APPS YOU CAN USE ON
YOUR PHONE THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO PUT SEVERAL PICTURES TOGETHER SO YOU REALLY CAN SHOW YOUR
CHEF MENTOR ALL OF THE STEPS ALONG THE WAY THAT YOU ARE DOING IT RIGHT OR WRONG IF NEED
BE. IF YOU NEED SOME CORRECTING THERE AND THEY ALWAYS RESPOND TO YOU VERY QUICKLY SO
YOU ARE GETTING THAT INSTANT FEEDBACK SO YOU KNOW, YOU ARE FEELING GOOD WHEN YOU ARE DOING
IT RIGHT. WELL, YOU KNOW, THE THING I LOVE ABOUT YOUR
PROGRAM IS THAT IT HELPS PEOPLE FIND JOBS, IT HELPS PEOPLE LOOK FOR THAT NEXT STEP BUT
IT ALSO IS THERE FOR ANYBODY THAT JUST WANTS TO GO ONLINE AND TAKE A COOKING COURSE, RIGHT?
WELL, THE WONDERFUL THING ABOUT THE PROGRAM AT ESCOFFIER ONLINE IS THAT IT’S USEFUL FOR
BOTH PROFESSIONAL CHEFS, FOR ADVANCED CHEFS AND ALSO FOR BEGINNING CHEFS. THE CULINARY
INDUSTRY IS GOING TO BE ADDING OVER A MILLION A AND A HALF NEW JOBS OVER THE NEXT DECADE.
SO, BY OBTAINING A PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATE IT GIVES THE STUDENTS AN EDGE ON CREATING
A JOB OF THEIR OWN WHICH MAY EVEN BE AN ALTERNATIVE CAREER PATH LIKE BECOMING A FOOD STYLIST OR
A FOOD PHOTOGRAPHER OR A PRIVATE CHEF OR A PERSONAL CHEF. OR EVEN A FOOD WRITER. ONCE
THEY HAVE THAT SKILL BASE AND THAT SKILL SET THEY CAN GO ANYWHERE THEY WANT IN THE CULINARY
WORLD AND BE SUCCESSFUL. IT’S A FUN RIDE AND I GUARANTEE YOU WILL ENJOY
EVERY MINUTE OF IT. WELL, I JUST MIGHT GO ONLINE FOR MY FAMILY.
FOR MYSELF. YOU’D LOVE IT!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.
