Your first likely thought is that culinary arts is a preserve of chefs in restaurants. However, this is only part of culinary arts and there is so much more than simply cooking in a restaurant or a big hotel. At Frontlearn Institute, we would want you to experience the full benefits of this course and today we unravel the details behind what culinary arts is all about.

Definition

Deciphering the term, culinary relates to cooking while arts means any broad area that might be of interest. Therefore, culinary arts means the art of cooking, preparing, serving and presenting food. This may be in the form of food in a restaurant, but culinary arts can be used in other professions that comprise cooking and presenting food.

One simple method of understanding culinary art is to consider what makes cooked food appetizing in the first place. As indivdiduals, we often judge cooked food by how it looks, smells, or tastes. Every time food is presented, sense are active and cause us to develop a certain perception towards the food, regardless of whether or not we know how it was prepared.

This is why professionals in the field of culinary arts take their time to ensure that the food that they cook is appealing and attractive. The success of anyone who is in this profession depends on whether they are able to utilize the tools that are availed to them and create a dish that is perfect in all ways.

The process
The process starts with an idea (idea preparation), which is then incubated (idea incubation), and then developed (idea development), and finally verified (verification). A creative culinary process may comprise of these four or more phases; each of the phase bears an impact on the other and a positive or direct impact on the cumulative culinary process. It has been said before that there is no field that comes close to culinary arts when it comes to creativity and innovation. At Frontlearn Institute, where culinary arts is taught at both certificate and diploma levels, our process starts with creativity and ends with great innovation and there is a great connection between the intermediate steps so much so that our cuisines are a masterpiece.

Frontlearn Institute trains cooks a variety of cooking ways so that they can be able to recall their knowledge and apply their skills to prepare any dish correctly and deliciously. Frontlearn Institute trainers are well versed with the various cooking methods that include frying, boiling, deep frying, sauteing, baking, basting, steaming, broiling, and so much more. In addition to that, Frontlearn’s faculty are familiar with every necessary tool for creating different cuisines. We train our students on the endless array of kitchen tools, and insist that our students must learn to use all of then, including grinders, food mills, pestles, mortar, steamers, ladles, and much more.

      A full-stack developer is a software engineer who can do both front-end and back-end development and handle all that is required as far as servers, databases, clients, and systems engineering is concerned. No one can deny, it is a bit overwhelming and arduous, but doable so long as one gets a good footing and that is what Frontlearn Institute endeavors to do to its students.

      In our training at Frontlearn Institute, we equip students doing both certificate and diploma in information technology with the skills that they need to be proficient in the long list of languages that full-stack developers require: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, MySQL, PHP, Python, and more. We desire to make our students versatile jack of all trades in a market that calls for comprehensive and astute programmers.

      Take a leap and join our pool of programming students at Frontlearn Institute and learn how and what it takes to become a full-stack web and app developer. It is not as difficult and time-consuming as it is depicted or as you may think. We have developed some five simple steps that, when followed keenly, will move you from a doubting Thomas to a full stack developer:

      1. Identify exactly what you need to learn

      At Frontlearn Institute, we will start you off with HTML, CSS, JS, SQL, and PHP but we encourage our students to venture into the deep blue and learn even more. As such, our students have the liberty and resources to learn and be proficient in other languages such as Python, C#, JAVA, Perl, Kotlin, and more. This is because a lot of business processes are written in them. We also encourage our students to master the grammar of the various languages and the structure as well as design to help them with the implementation and testing of projects based on different languages.

      2. Determine the ideal timeline that you need to be an expert

      Our certificate program at Frontlearn Institute takes 2 years while the diploma program takes 3 years. This does not mean that that is precisely what it will take for one to be an expert or rather a full stack developer. It may take longer or shorter, depending on the path they have chosen to tread. It is easier for our students to focus on programming while they are in school and become proficient programmers before they get to the job market than it is for those who are already in careers and have to juggle between a couple of things.

      3. Start learning in a format and from a place that suits you

      Frontlearn Institute is equipped with modern-day computer labs to help one become a full-stack developer. We endeavor to provide a physical and psychological environment that will ensure our students ace and become skillful programmers. Besides, our trainers are fully accessible for consultation and are keen when it comes to programming projects as that is where the rubber meets the road and proper supervision means that the student becomes sharper in the selected language for the project. Students are encouraged to exercise honesty when carrying out programming projects and to desist from urges to copy and paste from other projects available on the web.

      4. Start building your portfolio

      Frontlearn Institute endeavors to place our students in the right place in the market. We are developing a forum that will allow employers to preview our students’ work and their skills. This will encourage our students as we take care of their visibility and marketability.

      5. Start presenting yourself as a full stack developer

      Frontlearn Institute encourages students to display their work by describing the technologies they have employed and their role in the project. We encourage them to demonstrate their work with excellent technical know-how and an eye for design. Our faculty introduces and encourages them to make use of code versioning platforms such as GitHub. Any full-stack programmer should not be afraid to include projects that they are currently working on in GitHub. Building a public portfolio is perhaps one of the best ways they can use to learn how to become full-stack developers.

      Every year, thousands of high school students in Kenya enter their final year. Some are already contemplating about what will come next, discussing their wishes to further their study in college with counselors, parents, and friends, and planning out university visits. Most will without a doubt be pushed toward four years in college, where a degree will presumably offer each of them the best chance to high paying and fulfilling career.

      Four years in college are good fits for many, however, the notion that they are the best for everyone leaving high school is downright wrong. As high-tech machinery continues to disrupt the tech industry, and as workforces age in most manufacturing firms, there are key jobs opening up that academics can’t just fill. Well trained, highly skilled workers are needed, and Frontlearn Institute is one of the top-notch technical training colleges ready to fill such needs.

      At Frontlearn Institute, we provide the much-needed bridge between high school and the capacity to forge a career through the inculcation of hands on skills and knowledge. Frontlearn Institute is meant to offer quality education to people who want to gain an industry specific skill and match or even surpass what they would have acquired through a four-year university programme. To this effect, Frontlearn Institute has been offering technical training in culinary arts, information and technology, business and finance, and is planning to roll out more fields to cater for the growing need.

      We have specialized our technical and vocational training to help those pursuing specific areas in the industry. For instance, our certificate and diploma courses in culinary arts are geared towards ensuring that those taking the course become proficient in coping with the challenges and demands of the professional kitchen. The course is highly practical with assurance that the student will gain skills in culinary operations, food accompaniments preparation, stocks preparation, soups preparation, meats preparation, beverages preparation, and desserts preparation. Frontlearn Institute tops this training with industrial attachment where the trainees are exposed to actual commercial kitchens where they gain more practical skills and ascend the ladder towards becoming chefs.

      Frontlearn Institute’s certificate and diploma in information technology are also highly specialized courses that are driven by the demands in the industry. We aim to inculcate software, technical, and technological ICT skills. Our objective is to ensure that every student selects and specializes into becoming highly tech savvy with respect to the various domains in information technology including networking, software development, database administration, and IT support among others. At the moment, there is a great need in the market for graduates to be able to control ICT security threats, install and manage enterprise systems, perform computer networking, offer professional ICT support, develop and maintain websites, manage database systems, perform graphic design, develop mobile applications, and perform system analytics and design. At Frontlearn, we are keen to ensure that the graduates are able to accomplish these tasks.

      In sum, at Frontlearn, we are not just any other educational institution that one attends post secondary education. We are focussed on developing an all-round, hand-on graduate who can immediately fit in an organization and become highly productive. Frontlearn is cognizant of the dynamics in the corporate environment and seeks to ensure that its graduates are well versed with what ticks in the market.

      During the pandemic, online education has grown tremendously and so has competition for students. Universities and colleges with aggressive marketing strategies have been able to enroll potential students way before those that are less aggressive make contact. As such, the need for a seamless application process has never been so important. This is also because the online realm comes with its challenges and a significant percentage of those who start the process do not complete their college or course application process.
      At Frontlearn Institute, we have made the application process pretty seamless as demonstrated under the below themes:
      Simplicity
      The top complaint among applicants as well as their guardians is the degree of complexity in most application processes. Complexity can force a prospective student to choose a less desired course that presents as a path of least resistance, which at times, leads to abandoning the application process. It is estimated that more than 50% of prospective college students leave their applications halfway because of the complexity of application processes. Frontlearn Institute’s application is highly simplified and calls for responses to straightforward questions and instructions.
      Technical flexibility
      The application page at Frontlearn Institute takes the student directly to the application form. The application form comprises fields that take responses for every important information required to start the process for onboarding a prospective student. The application page can be accessed from the top primary menu, the footer menu, and the call to action sections that have the relevant application buttons. This page is compatible with both tablet and mobile views and allows anyone with internet access to process their initial processes of the application from any device.
      Security
      Since online applications have increased in number, some prospective students along with their guardians have become worried that the electronic submissions might not work. At Frontlearn Institute, we have embedded the right security layers to ensure that prospective students’ data is securely transmitted and stored at Frontlearn Institute’s servers. We also confirm our applications by redirecting their application form to a confirmation page or confirmation message popup.
      Administratively efficient
      There are several considerations to ensure that we can handle applicants’ data. First, Frontlearn Institute has an efficient data tracking mechanism that allows our admission office to track every application to completion. This also permits Frontlearn Institute to contact applicants who have not submitted their applications and assist them to complete the process. The capacity to track application completions also alerts the developer of the application to the potential problem in the online application form.
      At Frontlearn Institute, we are attracted to quality and seek to ensure that our prospective students can get on board and begin their career journeys without any delays.
