The art of mixology – Free workshop
Do you like food, tasting wine and mixing cocktails? Wouldn’t it be great to learn how to properly pair cocktails and food – or how about the art of flair bartending ?
The Pearson School of Culinary Arts has just the career offering for you – along with a free workshop called the Art of Mixology to give you a taste of what it’s all about.
“If you like food, wines and cocktails, Mixology allows you to combine these passions into a well-paid career,” said Pierre Auclair, pedagogical consultant at the Pearson Adult and Career Centre (PACC).
He said the free workshop – which takes place Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. at PACC, 8310 rue George in Ville La Salle – is being offered to candidates interested in taking the school’s Food and Beverage Service program or the Wine Service program.
Both programs are tuition-free and can lead to a fulfilling career, said Auclair adding that PACC also offers a course in becoming a sommelier – that is, learning all about wine procurement, storage, food and wine pairing and expert service to wine consumers .
“And just like pairing wine with food, the Mixology workshop, part of the centre’s Food and Beverage programs, will not only teach the art of making cocktails but the art of pairing food and cocktails as well,” said Auclair.
He said the Food and Beverage and Wine Service programs are essentially bilingual – that is, they are taught in English with extensive use of French for work integration purposes, giving both English and French-speaking students a chance to brush up their language skills.
At Pearson School of Culinary Arts, which has a strong reputation for excellence, students can also learn to work in a variety of positions in the food industry, including baking, pastry-making, contemporary cuisine, professional cooking, restaurant services and much more.
As well, PACC is home to Le Saucier, a very affordable gourmet-class dining room open to the public throughout the year. Le Saucier is used as part of the training in the LBPSB’s professional cooking, market cuisine and restaurant services programs.
Registration for The Art of Mixology workshop is required. For information and registration, contact Auclair firstname.lastname@example.org
