Learn from the best a Gordon Bleu chef that has 40yrs experience in Australia

Methodology

Prior to the lessons, learners would research the dishes/recipes to have an outline of what to expect in the lessons. To not have background on the food items would restrict the ability for the learners to remember and experience. They get one lesson with a demonstration, one chance of doing/producing. A learner needs as much exposure as possible to the task for it become their skill. the Lessons begin with a brief

Background

I've been an executive chef since 1981, having taught hundreds of people to produce food made from scratch with timing of how to bring it all together in the appropriate sequence.
Over the years I've developed more effective/efficient ways to organise and prepare for cooking.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson : $60/h

Details

Each lesson requiring produce will be purchased by the learner or I will purchase charging @ $40 hr for shopping. Travel costs depend on the location and accessibility of parking.
Hygiene is paramount and if cleaning is required it will be performed at the same rate of pay as the teaching rate.

My achievements are to have been a self taught Executive Chef which was my hobby as a front staff personnel. I purchased a small library of European chef's cook books that I would cross reference, produce them and perfect them to have my twist on it with the intention to be the best at it. Having grown up in family restaurants (Chinese Cuisine) I had a commercial kitchen at my disposal every Sunday.
My objective was to become a Restaurateur, one that won't be at the mercy of a chef. My skills became so strong it was difficult to find a chef that could make every food item on a menu. I resigned myself to the fact that I needed to teach, develop and train people with the right attitude to accomplish running my kitchens.
My achievments with my swim coaching caree becoming the person that developed swimmers into squad training, having the ability to teach, motivate, build self esteem for all swimmers was a highlight.
