Sous Vide Two-Day Workshop

April 18 - 19, 2023

*Note: Classes will be limited to a max of 12 participants.

So you want to learn sous-vide? Well, you came to the right place as Rich Rosendale and his team will be teaching this class!  Rich is one of only 72 Certified Master Chefs in the United States and he is considered an authority in this style of cooking.  He has over 55 international cooking awards under his belt. He has applied this technique in large-scale operations like the Greenbrier resort with 15 kitchens on the property as well as full-service independent restaurants. He also has applied the sous-vide technique in prestigious cooking events like the Culinary Olympics and the Bocuse d’Or. In 2014 Rich was contracted by the Royal Family of Dubai where he performed the technique for the chefs at the royal kitchens of the Zabeel Palace.

So what are you going to learn? Well, the course is packed with applicable cooking procedures using sous-vide that you can take back and begin using in your own operations. The topics covered in the two-day hands-on workshop are listed below:


  • Sous-vide fundamentals
  • Fish cookery
  • Fruit and vegetable cookery
  • Poultry and meat cookery
  • Compression sous-vide
  • Retherm technique with sous-vide
  • Cooking secondary cuts of meat
  • Specialty vacuum preparations
  • HACCP and food safety overview
  • Bonus: High production sous-vide with steam

This is a professional hands-on workshop for chefs. Participants will receive a welcome letter with the schedule three weeks prior to the course. The certificate provided at the end of the course is good for sixteen hours toward continuing education with the American Culinary Federation. All participants will receive an electronic file with recipes and the course material upon completion. We supply all of the food and material for the workshop. This class is of tremendous value.

This program is approved for 16 continuing education hours toward the initial or recertification application for ACF certification.

Note: These programs are not endorsed, accredited, or affiliated with ACF or the ACF Certification Program.
