Cibrèo is an independent thinking business founded by Fabio Picchi who is worldwide known for his intellectual honesty, his visionary approach and his ability to melt innovation, authenticity and tradition.
Cibrèo Academy and SCHOLA created Food Artisan, a training program which provides students with a unique and fully immersive experience within an artisanal and authentic food business in Florence.
The course is designed to be not only a cooking school, but a wider experience that focuses on how an artisanal food business works.
Cibrèo aims to educate on hand-crafted, traditionally made, authentic artisan products and to share its genuine and successful approach on food and food business.
Food Artisan is not strictly a Tuscan or Italian culinary school. Cibrèo’s philosophy can be translated anywhere in the world. Students coming from abroad or planning to set up a business outside Italy, are welcome to apply their knowledge to deliver an authentic experience worldwide.
The course is designed with a focus on the knowledge of local, seasonal and artisanal ingredients, cooking skills and restaurant management.
Each semester will rely on what the current season will offer and no exception will be made. Seasonal products will be the leading and central theme of the program which will be focused on food producers, on the transformation, preparation and final presentation of products. Each month will bring different fresh products on stage and Cibrèo’s method will guide students in order to emphasize seasonality as a positive value for customers.
During the program, students will explore topics such as sustainability, ethical and health issues relating to food production, consumption and quality, and how these elements relate to producers.
Next session will start on February 8th, 2022.
