By | Austin Kiplagat – Final Year Food Production Student at Kenya Utalii College

I learnt a lot from Chef Geussepie Geraci. The food prepared was simple, artistic, colorful and the plaiting was on another level“.

I am a culinary student passionate on the craft of cookery and on behalf of the student body of Kenya Utalii College, I would like to thank Italy as a country through their Embassy for allowing our institution to  be part of the Master chef’s class taught by Chef Giuseppe Geraci during the International Week of The Italian Cuisine – Culinary Clinic at Kenya Utalii College.

We got to learn about what happens behind the closed doors of an Italian fine dinning establishment. Two days is a short time , but we got to learn a lot theoretically and practically about the basics of Italian cuisine. This is a foundation that will withstand the test of times. I am looking forward to learn more about the Italian Cuisine.

It is an honor to have met such an icon who is definitely making a bold statement in the industry by doing his best and passing down the knowledge to me and my fellow classmates. He is a gem and one of the best chef’s Italy has to offer.

I learnt a lot from the Chef. The food prepared was simple, artistic, colorful and the plating was on another level, and we were taught to make use of the leftovers – Chef Geraci reminded us to use our five senses and always add the sixth sense. It is such an unforgettable experience.
