Question from anonymous
How much time is dedicated to plating as opposed to cooking food?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The focus of the class is plating, so the chef’s do most of the prep, however, there still is hands-on cooking. For example, students sear scallops before they put them on the plate. Hope this helps!

Plating 101
Reviewed by Anonymous on 1/13/2020
The class was ok. Not enough plating techniques and non to little discussion regarding the different types of tools and plates used in the process, and in general. There were only 3 small plates' demonstration with few ingredients(greens not fresh) and nothing out of the norm that you wouldn't figure out on your own by watching a 3 minutes youtube video. The place was odd, not like a regular kitchen, and the staff seemed to be a bit out of place in the training/cooking area. I really didn't learn much except for a couple of things that I needed clarification on. The instructor was very nice and friendly and so was the rest of the staff. At the end of the 3 hours, it was a cool way of meeting new people and spending a Sunday afternoon in the City.

Chef Ken energy was amazing. Very thorough and easy to learn from. I walked away learning how to apply the few skills we learned to many other dishes.

Fantastic class. Loved the instructor. We learned a three course meal and tips on how to professionally “plate”.
