Beyond cutting-edge cuisine.
Get ready for the scientific kitchen of the 21st century.
In the last 25 years, cooking has evolved more than in the last 250 years. Cooking is science, physics and chemistry, so in this course, you will have scientists, physicists and chemists as mentors, alongside great chefs, creators and disseminators of molecular cuisine.
We break the culinary rules, blur the lines and dogma through the most scientific creativity with CIB’s methodology to show the gastronomy of the future using science. Whether enhancing textures, discovering new flavours, using techniques such as freeze drying, systematising processes, conceptualising productions, researching the behaviour of gasses in a carbonation or discovering how emulsions behave in a sauce using the latest tools and technology.
CIB’s Postgraduate Degree in Molecular Cuisine is a specialisation aside from the Grand Chef’s Diploma and is 3 months long. With the multicultural mix of the students who come from across the globe, this cooking specialisation is aimed at chefs who want to acquire the knowledge, skills, possibilities and techniques involved in molecular cuisine and who want to create and innovate in the world of professional cooking, bringing any restaurant to the forefront of 21st-century gastronomy.
