In-Service Culinary Support

After a week of intensive training at Culinary Boot Camp, food service workers return to their kitchens inspired to make kitchen improvements and to implement the lessons learned.

School Food Chef Instructors provide hands-on support to integrate new recipes, more efficient production methods, and local ingredients into school kitchens. Culinary support includes recipe testing and development, menu planning, improvement of food safety and sanitation practices, and continued instruction of institutional production methods. With a bird's eye view of a school district or individual kitchen's practices, our Chef Instructors help school district employees identify and overcome obstacles that stand in the way of scratch cooking.
