    Hi guys...

    I'm looking for good "Culinary science" courses, I'm currently a chef with about 20 years of professional experience and so far the food industry has been very generous with me, but I have to admit that I'm an absolute ignorant of the new scientific approach to cooking, I own some books on the subject, I have a sousvide machine and I'm learning by myself, but the best way to shorten the learning curve is to get some formal training.

    And here I am looking for advice and/or suggestions, I live in Mexico and I run/co-own a couple of restaurants, so, getting a culinary degree in food science is not possible, I can't take a two year vacation to start studying, I'm looking for courses from 3 to 15 days maximum, I found this from the CIA and I like it, that's pretty much what I'm looking for http://menuscience.ciachef.edu/node/659 but it is full and also the date is complicated for me, this is something that I'll be doing in 4-6 more months.

    All your suggestions will be more than welcome.

    Luis
