Preface: Culinary arts, in which ‘culinary’ means "related to cooking", are the ‘arts’ of preparation, cooking, and presentation of food, usually in the form of meals. People working in this field – especially in establishments such as restaurants – are called "chefs" or "cooks", although, at its most general, the terms "culinary artist" and "culinarian" are also used. Table manners as an exemplar, ("the table arts") are sometimes referred to as a culinary art.
Expert chefs are required to have knowledge of food science, nutrition, and diet and are
responsible for preparing meals that are as pleasing to the eye as they are to the palate.

Preface: "The Garde Manger course is an introduction to the art and craft of the cold kitchen. It is rooted in preservation methods and techniques dating back to the days when the Garde Manger or 'keeper of the food' had no refrigeration and needed to preserve food for its wholesomeness. Techniques such as aspics and terrines are making a resurgence in the modern kitchen and a good foundation is important for you to be able to create your own niche as a modern chef. First, learn the old then redefine the new."

Preface: The Meat Identification and Fabrication course is an introductory class that offers you the opportunity to learn how nature made the domesticated and wild animals for us to harvest, fabricate, and prepare for table service. Along the way, we will explore their physiology and muscle composition as we learn how to divide them into primal, sub primal and usable cuts. The goal is not to become a professional butcher after this class but rather to gain a working knowledge about the proteins we use in our profession and to learn how to make sub primals ready for guest service and the proper cooking methods for particular cuts.

Pop-up shops are temporary stores that “pop up” for a few days or months. They are a new form of retail operations that have gained popularity in the past decade. Retailers and brands of all sizes have implemented pop-up shops – from global and national retail chains, to small independent stores and even e-commerce pure players – that have positioned these initiatives as a marketing & communication tool, as incubators to test a market and/or new products, or as inventory liquidation venues. Pop-up shops have also been established as a solution for revitalizing communities where significant storefront vacancies exist.
