Learn fundamental concepts of good cooking that are reusable across all recipes. This course is for anyone who want to improve their cooking ability and consistently produce tasty meals without following any recipe cards. One day I was feeling adventurous following the recipes of an outstanding celebrity chef, were I needed to get hold of a particular Bavarian sausage as it added the right flavour “that made the dish”. I popped down to my local supermarket and low and behold they were all out (well, they never actually stocked it). So was the dish doomed, yes … not because I didn’t have the sausage I didn’t how to replicate with another ingredient to get the same affect.

Food & Beverage Management
Managing a company in the food and beverage industry is a fascinating task. Food and beverage products are so deeply rooted in the culture of most countries that making and selling them is not only a matter of making and selling good and tasty products, but products that nurture people's body, soul, and heart. Given this, it's not difficult to see that the task quickly becomes complex. The objective of this course is twofold: first, we will focus on contemporary challenges that managers and entrepreneurs in food and beverage businesses should be able to face; and second, we will provide models and tools to design and implement appropriate courses of action to satisfy customers and build an advantage over the competition. This course is made up of four modules and an introduction, each exploring one dilemma that food and beverage companies face. You will be presented with a set of video lectures and guest speakers. These lectures combine an accessible introduction to specific topics integrated with interviews of managers and experts that will give precious insights and examples to the participants. To enhance your learning experience with us, we will make a Documentary on the Excellences of the Modena District available for you, which is in a format that we have developed specifically for this course in order to give you the chance to experience first-hand the territory as our on-campus students usually do. Each module is paired with an evaluated quiz and weekly discussion forums to reflect on the variety of the F&B world, its complexity, and the power of the network that we will build together during the course. Successful completion of the quizzes is required for a course certificate as explained in the Grading Policy.
