Earn Your Certificate

We understand that you are serious about your learning and want to be recognized! We’ve put together a list of core classes that we think make up a very important series of techniques. If you complete this core list we will issue you an official signed certificate stating that you are an official Portland’s Culinary Workshop Knife Wielder!

For those that want to up the stakes we will also have a secondary certificate that you will only receive if you take a practical test at PCW showing that you have proven your proficiency in several key areas. Those test items and the name of that certificate is TBD, but the test will either be available twice a year or by appointment only.

The core classes that you must complete in order to receive a certificate are:

  • Knife Techniques
  • Principles of Cooking
  • Flavors and Balance
  • Gettin’ Saucy in the Kitchen
  • Fresh Herbs & Spices
  • Healthy Cuisine
  • Stupendous Stocks
  • Master the Chicken
  • Artisan Breads
  • And 2 electives of your ethnic cuisine class of choice

Let the skill gathering commence! Let us know if you are working on your certificate classes and we’ll keep track of what you have and what you need!  E-mail us at info@portlandsculinaryworkshop.com
