Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts Offers Class On Beer

Beer

Tuition costs $499.00, and covers guided weekly tastings that explore the history.

The question has often been “what do you get the man that has everything?” The answer is often “beer.” This year why not give him a chance to really explore his passion with the help of The Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts (PICA).

The eight-week introductory beer program is taught by Chester Carey, a PICA graduate and Canada’s first certified master cicerone. The cicerone title, according to their website, is to “designate those with proven expertise in selecting, acquiring and serving today’s wide range of beers.”

Their titles “Certified Cicerone®” and “Master Cicerone®” (pronounced sis-uh-rohn) are protected certification trademarks. Only those who have passed the requisite test of knowledge and tasting skill can call themselves a Cicerone.

Carey brings his expertise to his Serious Beer program from Jan 11, 2012 to Feb 29, 2012. Tuition costs $499.00, and covers guided weekly tastings that explore the history, ingredients and brewing techniques of beer styles from around the globe.

The Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts offers diploma programs for anyone looking to start a career in many areas of the culinary arts. They also offer classes for professionals looking to upgrade their skills and anyone who is passionate about food.
