Workshops

The workshops and seminars completing the academic lessons and providing a practical training to be directly applied in the labour market, are held by experts and professionals coming from the catering and marketing sectors.

Gastronomy workshop
This workshop will be held by a chef who will cook, together with students, the meals for the class, the guests and for the dinners of MADE School.
Students will be divided into teams and, according to specific shifts, will develop advanced cooking skills by preparing recipes for any occasion. Thanks to this gradual approach, after 6 months the whole class will be able to prepare a complete and articulate menu in full autonomy.
The coach will also teach students how to create a weekly menu, how to choose food according to the budget available, how to create and manage the stock and how to select suppliers.
