Learning to cook, waitress, bartend, and barback may seem like overpreparing for the food industry, but Restaurant & Bar Industry Training’s experts know that restaurant managers need all of these skills and more. The team teaches future managers the fundamentals of each role they aspire to supervise, as well as skills such as code enforcement and inventory management. Alternatively, the school’s 40-hour classes can focus on front-of-house roles, such as bartending and waitressing, or behind-the-scenes skills, such as cooking or assembling the restaurant’s booths every morning. Regardless of its area of focus, each course culminates in a final exam; students that score 80% or higher receive certification in their area of study.
The resident chefs at The Cooking School at Irwin Street model their teaching style after that of the quirky, patient Julia Child as they walk kitchen cadets through the basics of food transmogrification with a collection of helpful and laughter-filled classes held in two distinctive locations. Tucked away in the historic Old Fourth Ward, the indoor kitchen lets students loose on modern appliances amid appetite-kindling hues of pumpkin and avocado. The newly unveiled farm kitchen, meanwhile, incorporates vine-fresh produce and just-picked herbs from the surrounding soil in recipes prepared under the open sky. In both of these settings, the instructors pare cooking down to the essentials—an open mind, an eager palate, and a sharp, non-argumentative knife. Classes cater to a number of dietary restrictions, from creative vegan options and gluten-free baking lessons to smoked-meat sessions for inveterate salamivores. Most classes are BYOB, and some sessions are open to parent-child combos.
