To its modern-day students, Mariano Moreno Culinary Institute looks much different today than when it debuted in Buenos Aires in 1963. Back then, the institute was simply called the Mariano Moreno Institute and it only offered journalism courses—the first school to do so in the Argentinean capital. That’s why its founder chose Mariano Moreno, the creator of Buenos Aires’ first newspaper, as the school’s namesake. The school eventually immigrated to Miami, where its instructors teach cooking instead of writing, and also has locations in Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela. They stick mostly to European cuisine—especially French, Italian, and Spanish—as well as regional American fare. Their curriculum includes certification courses in the culinary arts and patisserie and baking, as well as myriad cooking and baking classes for the general public.
Chef Reni Alves has always found herself amid the freshest foods. She grew up on a lush farm in Brazil before making her way to Johnson & Wales University to earn a culinary degree. Now, as head of Chef Reni Alves Catering, she puts her motto—"Make it happen"—into action by fusing fresh ingredients into multicultural spreads that feed parties big and small. At events, her food stations dish out everything from Moroccan tuna skewers to twice-baked truffle skin potatoes, and roving servers circulate trays of appetizers and general life advice.
In addition to her catering services, Chef Reni also shares her expertise during cooking classes, which mix a laid-back vibe with gourmet cuisine instruction. Participants learn to craft entrees and desserts in the style of Reni's cooking, producing family dinners that they can recreate at home.
There are plenty of ways to learn—reading a book, listening to an audio tape, or watching an instructional video, to name a few. Effective as those methods are for some, for others, they are too impersonal. That's where Face to Face Cooking Club comes in. Here, teachers lead enriching cooking classes, sharing with budding chefs the skills needed to cook the cuisine of many international cultures. The club also offers intensive Spanish programs that cover all four language-related skills—writing, speaking, reading, and listening—but focus especially on speaking, which enables students to communicate quickly instead of etching hieroglyphics into the wall.
