B.T.I.A. and Mexican Embassy Host Advance Culinary Training in Belize

The Belize Tourism Industry Association has teamed up with the Embassy of Mexico for a three-day advance culinary training at the ITVET in Belize City. The training is the first of a series of training sessions that will take place following the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Mexico and the B.T.I.A. Specialized trainers from the Training Institute of Quintana Roo are conducting the sessions to train twenty-five chefs from across the country drawn from popular restaurants, resorts and private island resorts. B.T.I.A. Executive Director John Burgos says that the training meets one of the many demands of its members.

“They provide all the training in the different areas for all the properties in La Rivera Maya; from Cancun down to Bacalar and Calderitas and so on. So we know the level of service that Mexico provides, we know the history with tourism so we thought them as a logical, practical partner for us to have. So what we are having today, is a twenty hours advance culinary training. He is going to be covering two key things. He wants to do some molecular structures and techniques and then he is going to be looking at plating—how do you present your final dish. Lately there is a lot of styles and techniques and he will show that. So the main focus is that he is going to show them different techniques and then he wants you to learn to give it your own identity. Every chef has their own creativity, their own style, so he wants to be able to provide them with the tools so that they can develop those styles.”
