The students, following a personalized career path, will be able to choose the specialization in Cooking-Gastronomy or Restaurant Business Service.

  • First course: Students familiarize with the profession and the specific kitchen operations and restaurant service; acquire new knowledge on products, culinary and service techniques and put it into continuous practice, taking the roles and duties of a beginner in kitchen work and restaurant service.

  • Second course: Generic knowledge as well as the skills acquired during the first course are consolidated. Students work deeper on the specific professional techniques and on the planning and managing processes required for each department in accordance to business, service and quality parameters. This enables students to take on duties which involve greater responsibility.
