Our five-week Professional Chef 2 Series is a continuation program for graduates of our Pro Chef Series.  It is a Certificate Series designed for people interested in careers as chefs, cooks, caterers or other positions in the food service industry as well as for home cooks who want to take their cooking to a professional level.  We teach attendees the equipment, ingredients, techniques, skills and temperaments used by professional chefs and necessary to work in the food service industry.

PREP's Pro 2 Series is so much more than just your typical cooking class. It an intensive immersion into the world of food. You'll learn to cook like a professional with the guidance of our famed chef-instructor. You'll prepare and enjoy fabulous dishes  and when you're done, you may just surprise yourself with how much you've grown as a chef.

Top-quality ingredients, professional instruction, and a spirited community of students and chefs...they're all waiting for you at Prep Kitchen Essentials.

Each Professional Chef Series class meets once a week for five weeks. Enrollment is generally limited to 14 students.  Our Professional Chef Series classes are a "bootcamp" like series with students learning food and meal preparation akin to that of an on-the-job restaurant situation.  Students are responsible for site conditions and meal preparation from start to finish, from the mise-en-place of  ingredients to workstation cleanup.
