I reached kinda early and I saw quite a number of parents and their children who are interested to gain more knowledge about this course. If you think that food is all about to make your tummy full, you are wrong. Especially when it comes to commercials.
What is Culinology®?
Basically it is a combination of culinary arts, technology and science. Imagine every single gram of food/nutrition are counted? A Culinologists® is a chef who can cook and understand the science behind mass production of food and would eventually work hand-in-hand with food scientist to produce a product.
The term ‘Culinology®’ was coined by the U.S. based Research Chefs Association(RCA). Founded in 1996 by a group of research chefs working in the food product development industry, the association has witnessed the growing trend for professional chefs to become intimately involved in the research and development process. Traditionally, it was food scientists who have been at the forefront of developing new products for the mass market, with a focus on food preservation and commercialisation.
Graduates can be called a Culinologists®, and have the option to work as as Chef Consultant, R&D Manager or R&D Chef, Hygiene Consultant, Quality Manager, Sensorial Analysis Manager, Corporate Chef, Corporate Executive Chef, Test Kitchen Chef and other similar positions in the food industry
After the briefing, we had the opportunity to witness Culinology® in Action, Chef Sharizan made mayonnaise by mixing egg yolk with oil. For me, I still prefer the normal mayonnaise that sold at the shop. Nicer lol. At 1st, their attempt failed because they did not use the right amounts of ingredients. The 2nd time, it turned out good. It’s proven that to produce a perfect product, a combination of culinary arts, technology & science will help a lot.
