As the normal shift on a workboat is usually 28 days, Son of a Sea-Cook Workboat Cooking School has chosen to make it’s Basic Boat Cook(BBC101) course 28 days long. The curriculum of the course includes basic food production, biscuit making, food safety, food service, food management, purchasing, galley safety & sanitation, and group cooking with meat, poultry and seafood. The curriculum is focused on a unique segment of the culinary sciences, with lots of practical hands-on cooking to help students become proficient and efficient in a workboat kitchen. Students have the opportunity to cook for real boat crews that are attending many of the US Coast Guard approved courses. The Law School of The Sea, on the campus of The College of Nautical Knowledge, offers room and board, (they like to call it bread and bed) to all their students at the Bayou La Batre facility. Son of a Sea-Cook Workboat Cooking School, is making the same offer. The kitchen-classroom was specifically designed to help the student become a practical workboat cook. The classes are limited in size to enable us to give ample personal attention to each and every apprentice Cook. Classes start every two weeks, (on a Tuesday) for the 28 day, Basic Boat Cook (BBC101) course.
