The Environment of a Professional Kitchen Requires Complete Focus and Application of Cultivated Skills While All at Once Dealing with Fire, Sharp Knives, Customer Service, Never-Ending Orders, Long Hours, Expensive Ingredients, Time-Sensitive Techniques, Raging Ovens and Boiling Oil; There is Simply No Allowing for Absolute Mistakes or Any Member of the Crew Giving-Up at Any Moment.

Communicating With All Levels of an Organization

Whether it be for a Defendant in a Legal Issue, a Co-worker/ Client/ Patient in a Food and Beverage Capacity, a Student Who Needs Help to Succeed or an Employer with Expectations and Responsibilities, Understanding What Pressures a Person is Under and How to Best Work Together to Accomplish Goals is of Paramount Importance.

Baking Skills

The Application of Food Science is Best Seen through Baking.  Developing Breads or Sweets, Baking requires an Understanding of How and Why Different Components can Come Together or Fail to do so.  Once Goals are Established, Such as Making a Food Healthier for a Specific Population, One's Understanding and Skills of Execution Must Come to Light to Help Someone Enjoy Their Diet.

Savory Food Preparation

Whether through Classic Techniques and Preparation or Problem Solving Skills in the Moment, Savory Preparation and Actualization Skills are of Extreme Priority and Value.
