Cape Fear Community College is pleased to announce a new series of continuing education courses for home chefs who want to learn to prepare classic dishes from regions around the world starting January 2018. The Culinary Academy International Series will take students on culinary journeys to France, Italy, Mexico, and a variety of Asian countries. Students will study the culinary traditions of each region and sample the dishes they create with classmates.
The Culinary Academy International Series will consist of four 16-hour culinary classes taught by award-winning chef and CFCC Culinary Technology Instructor Gwen Gulliksen. “I am so excited for us to offer these new international classes!” Gulliksen said of the new series. “Each week will be like a mini culinary vacation for our students. I look forward to sharing recipes from some of my favorite travels with them and teaching them how easy these delicious dishes are to cook.”
The Culinary Academy International Series segments into four class sessions, each four weeks long. The series will begin in January with Regional French Cuisine, continue in February and March with Regional Italian and Regional Mexican Cuisine, and conclude in April with Regional Asian Cuisine.
Students can register for each 16-hour class session separately depending on their interests. Classes will meet on Tuesdays from 10:00 to 2:00 p.m. in the Union Station culinary lab. For additional details, please visit www.cfcc.edu/ceschedule or call CFCC Community Enrichment at 910.362.7199.
