You’ve been reading on APH CareerConnect about the Cooking Without Looking TV Show; now you have an opportunity to attend the Cooking Without Looking Boot Camp in conjunction with the Florida International University (FIU) School of Hospitality. This course will be taught by Cooking Without Looking’s blind chef, Don White. This is an FIU course, which includes specialized tips and instruction for blind and visually impaired students.

Chef Don White is classically trained and has worked around the world and alongside the likes of American celebrity chef Paul Prudhomme, one of Louisiana’s most famous. As well, Chef Don has also owned and managed restaurants, so has that entrepreneurial experience to share.

Blind and visually impaired students are welcome and encouraged to take the 10-day course. At the end of the course, students will receive a certificate that may help them to obtain employment in the hospitality industry. Students can also use the certificate to help start their own catering business.

The 10-day Cooking Without Looking Boot Camp will be held in August 2015, with dates to be announced. Cost is $1,950. If you are a counselor needing further information, please contact Renee Rentmeester at 305.200.9104 with any questions.
