- WHEN CAN I START?
You can enroll anytime, from anywhere! Once you are enrolled, you can begin immediately.
- IS THE ENTIRE COURSE PLANT BASED?
As a part of Matthew Kenney Global, Food Future Institute is an entirely plant based platform. FFI Foundations, as well as future courses, utilize explicitly plant based ingredients with no animal products or byproducts. This course also provides gluten free substitutions for almost all recipes.
- ARE THERE ANY PREREQUISITES REQUIRED TO START THE COURSE?
As FFI’s flagship course offering, FOUNDATIONS was designed to give students insight into the professional kitchen and the world of Matthew Kenney Cuisine. The course is open to anyone seeking to enhance their current kitchen skills with professional level techniques.
While there are no prerequisites to join the course, it should be understood that this course is not a “beginner level” program. Those who are new to cooking should expect to be challenged with new techniques, professional grade equipment and unfamiliar ingredients. Depending on your level of skill and how well-equipped your home kitchen is, successful completion of the course may require up to 20 hours a week dedicated to coursework, gathering ingredients, studying the techniques and executing in the kitchen over a period of days.
- HOW IS THE COURSE STRUCTURED?
The curriculum is divided into 18 modules that contain a grouping of related lessons that are ordered sequentially. Every lesson comes equipped with detailed instructions along with process photos of the recipes, and for many, video tutorials.
- HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO GRADUATE?
To graduate the course with a Certificate of Completion, all lessons must be completed within one year of the enrollment date, which you can start at any time after purchase. Even if you don’t complete all lessons within that time frame, you will retain access to all of the lessons, recipes, and interactive community for life.
- WHAT IS YOUR POLICY ON EXTENSIONS?
We understand that life and external factors beyond our control may impact one’s ability to complete the course within one year. It is our policy to grant a six month extension to those who wish to complete the course with a certification but are unable to do so within the allotted year. If you require an extension, please email firstname.lastname@example.org within 60 days of your culmination date to request extra time.
