It is because of this that IHS has designed 16 exciting courses to assist likeminded people who have a love for cooking, merely want to perfect a certain aspect in the kitchen or want to learn the art of hospitality in a faster time period and that suits the working person. Lessons start at 5:30pm and end at 9:30pm on selected weekdays with some courses extending to a Saturday from 8:30am to 12:30pm.
Under the Culinary Arts banner, courses range from Introduction to cooking like a Chef, The Culinary Art of Sushi, Perfecting Cake Icing, to Charcuterie (preparation of meat products).
Then under the banner of Hospitality Management and Operations, courses range from Basic Draping Course, Table Setting Décor and Floral Arrangements, Bartending and Cocktail Making, Stock Control, Advanced Draping Course, Food & Wine Service Course, Bed & Breakfast Operations, Food & Beverage Operations to Hospitality Financial Management.
Each course runs over different durations with some courses lasting only 4 hours with the longest lasting 24 hours which can be completed over 6 days.
With so many options available, the opportunities are endless and can assist in current or future job prospects, skill acquirement and general knowledge of the culinary or hospitality industry.
