I’ve always thought the young ones carry the hope for a better future and it’s our duty to support them. That is why, once again I’m fully content to sponsor opportunities to a group of teenagers for gastronomy. Through the Gastronomy Workshop by INFOTEP, the students will demonstrate their will and abilities in the four weeks Creative Gastronomy program.
The certification (This year for the second time) came up from a dream I had, not just to encourage the young to develop their abilities in gastronomy, but also to reward the one outstanding student of the program to experience a superior education program in a culinary school in Europe.
The course is about optimizing culinary techniques at Basque Culinary Center, located in Spain. A pioneering institution worldwide taking account as associates 8 of the best Basque chefs like Martin Berasategui, Pedro Subijana, Juan Mari Arzak, Karlos Arguiñano o Andoni Aduriz. Additionally, the international committee included high level chefs like Ferrán Adriá, Michel Bras, Heston Blumenthal, Dominique Crenn, Joan Roca, Gastón Acurio o Massimo Bottura.
For the first encounter, all interested should show their abilities and skills to a group of prominent judges, whom will rate their performance and innovations when making a meal. The 20 best will – Free of charge – start the two months program of Creative Gastronomy in INFOTEP. The best student of the course will go to Spain fully sponsored.
This second edition is all about boosting the Dominican talent, to develop their culinary skills and to provide an opportunity to go further into culinary territories.
