What Makes Classic Cooking Academy’s Practical Series So Special

The Practical Series offers students a rare opportunity to learn from an instructor of Chef Pascal’s unique cultural heritage and sophisticated culinary training.  Speaking five languages and having worked in high profile kitchens on several continents, Chef Pascal affords his students an incomparable culinary education.  Teaching this coursework for over 30 years, Chef Pascal continues to go strong as he pursues his commitment to empowering students of all skill levels to achieve greater competency and cooking potential.

The Practical Series Curriculum illustrates the depth and breadth of the instruction provided through the exploration of weekly topics.  Over the course of 24 weeks, students learn through clear demonstration, guided discussion and hands-on lessons in the professional kitchen. Chef Pascal teaches a comprehensive program from stocks and soups; breads; eggs; vegetables; beef, chicken and veal; fish and shellfish; grains and pasta; Asian techniques; hors d’oeuvres; pastry, desserts and chocolate. Chef Pascal has carefully designed this Curriculum to educate his student chefs in the classically trained cooking techniques which are dear to his heart and the bedrock of his culinary mastery. To view the Curriculum, click here.

Classic Cooking Academy is proud to offer the Practical Series to students who need a flexible schedule, seek an affordable program, require an interest-free payment plan, embark on a cooking journey, feel impassioned about food, enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, or appreciate the cultural importance of preparing and sharing a fine meal. Of note, student chefs become sufficiently familiar with fundamental technique such that following a recipe is often not required to create a delicious dish, although students receive copies of all recipes used in the Practical Series. Upon completion of the Practical Series, student chefs receive a Certificate verifying their accomplishment.

A Few Details:

Each weekly class starts with a Chef Instructor lecture and demonstration before all student chefs enter the professional kitchen for hands-on application in preparing the recipes or concepts surrounding that week’s topic.

The total cost of the 24-week Practical Series is $2,500.  A deposit of $550 is required at the time of the enrollment. Additionally, a $35 fee is collected for the purchase of a chef’s jacket, required to be worn by all student chefs. Space is limited. Early registration is encouraged.

A zero-interest payment plan is available. For example, a $550 deposit plus the $35 chef jacket fee is required to reserve your place in the Series, then $325 a month, for 6 consecutive months, is collected to cover the remaining balance.  Please call the Academy for further details regarding the zero-interest payment plan.
