Professional Cookery

January 2019


Profiteroles made by Year 12 student, Kyle B.

Our Level 3 Professional Cookery course is going from strength to strength since its launch in September.

Most recently, students have been developing their knowledge and skills in the art of Patisserie, producing a variety of designer sweet treats including profiteroles. Those pictured here, which combine chocolate and coconut, were prepared and photographed by Year 12 student, Kyle B who intends to study a Degree in Food Science following his time at King James Sixth Form.

As well as developing practical skills in cooking and presentation, students develop skills in all aspects of the catering industry as part of the course. Units of study cover nutrition for health, allergies and dietary requirements, menu design, food hygiene, kitchen management and even budgeting to ensure profit.
