- 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. Foundations: Phase I, 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?
We have students from all walks of life, all at different culinary skill levels- ranging from beginner to advanced. Every student can plan to learn a wide range of culinary skills, techniques and methods that range from basic knife cuts to vegan pastry making.
- 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 EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
You will be required to provide your own equipment which we detail in the student catalogue and in your course syllabus. To get started you’ll need a sharp knife, a cutting board and a high speed blender. Reach out to our instructors to find an appropriate alternative if certain equipment is not available to you.
