Find out why…

Commercial cookery: still a good bet, even after everything that’s happened during 2020

Food has been one of the number one comforts, stress relievers and go-tos, especially during such challenging times.

While some things have certainly changed, one thing that hasn’t is people’s love for food – something you can expect to persist even after everything settles down and cities across Australia start reopening.

Of course, that isn’t the only reason to start studying commercial cookery in Brisbane – there are plenty of good reasons why more and more people are enrolling in cookery courses.

Start a food business

While the outlook may be a little different at the moment, we’re certain that Brisbane’s food and hospitality scene will bounce back rapidly after things settle – after all, we’re big food lovers up here in Brissie.

And that means that there’s plenty of room if you’re thinking of opening your own food business.

There have been a lot of food business ideas that soared during the lockdown that would have never existed if it wasn’t for COVID-19.

Of course, you’re going to need a certain base level of knowledge before you start – something that our online cookery courses provide.

From teaching you basic food preparation methods and techniques to hone your basic skills and knowledge in cooking, to teaching the essentials of hospitality management, our commercial cookery courses are just what you need to forge on ahead.

The more practise you do in cooking, the better you become the cook that you want to be. 

And if you are confident enough to show everyone your main dish expertise, the most likely you can think of cooking for others and pave the way for you to start a business.

Stress reliever

Stress causes high anxiety levels among Australians, and can greatly affect your mental health.

Luckily, there are many ways to relieve that stress – including by studying commercial cookery.

After all, what’s better than the satisfaction that comes with prepping a succulent home-cooked meal?

For many, cooking helps them detach from what’s going on and instead letting you focus on something else. Others use cooking as an emotional outlet where they can pour out their frustrations, anger and anxieties.

While it may not be the main benefit of enrolling, turning your passion into a project is something worth considering, particularly after the year we’ve had.

Increase sense of accomplishment and control 

Who said you need to limit yourself to a sourdough starter? 

There’s nothing more satisfying than working with your hands – luckily for you, cooking fits the bill perfectly.

After all, it’s hands-on work where you get to see your creations take shape in front of you – the very definition of satisfaction and accomplishment!

Online commercial cookery courses offer easy access

Online learning makes it possible for anyone with internet access to enrol in an online cookery course.

Now obviously, a lot of your course is going to have to be taught in-person – it’s a highly practical, hands-on career after all.

However, that doesn’t mean that online learning is completely off the table.

Many of our students like the flexibility that online learning offers, and enjoy a mix of practical and theory classes. They’ll take their theory classes online to give them more time for the rest of their commitments.

Online learning with a difference

Unlike a lot of other online courses, our online cookery courses replicate the classroom experience as much as possible:

  • Live classes instead of pre-recorded lectures
  • Virtual whiteboards that let you interact with the content
  • Small class sizes mean you get the one-on-one attention you need
  • Private chats for you to talk to fellow students
  • Playback and recording so you can double-check the content
