Beyond the cuisine of temperatures.

Here we teach you to create and lead the kitchen of the 21st century.

To differentiate yourself, you have to be different.

Fire has been and is the protagonist in professional kitchens. The growing supply and demand mean that to stand out we have to create and master modern and ancestral techniques to the endless possibilities offered by the combination of cooking temperatures in the product and the technique according to the gastronomic and cultural context to which we are addressing.

The knowledge of the product that we find in different parts of the world provides us with different techniques and ways of treating fire that require learning skills and scientific knowledge. From its different cuts, uses and techniques such as nitrogen or lyophilization to the flame of the torch, the heat of the open barbecue, the cooking of a barbecue oven, the outdoor fires or the art of smoking. New trends of the last two decades such as sous vide cooking and low temperatures open up new possibilities to offer value from professional kitchens. and are now one more technique to use perfectly.

It is not enough just to master knowledge and practice, it is necessary to have tools for creativity and innovation to provide solutions to problems, create opportunities, advantages and competitive differences before others. Nowadays, specializing is the objective to be a reference in what you are passionate about and thus be able to offer it to your clients.

The Postgraduate course in Fire and Low Temperature turns the chef into a specialized expert in high and low temperatures with a complete domain of the raw material and its combinations to apply it to specific aims and contexts worthy of the 21st century.

This program offers the student tools in creativity, leadership of oneself, of others and of the business, as well as a look towards the present and future of the restaurant industry. Lasting three months, this postgraduate course is an independent module of the Gran Chef Diploma career and takes the student to the next level of their professional career, allowing them to create, highlight and add value to the fire and low temperatures of any restaurant.
