    In today’s world, competition and competency is imperative now more than ever. The RCA solidifies food and science, making it Culinology. Being certified is an accomplishment to say the least. With an enormous depth of varying subjects, taking the classes with Jill Golden is extremely recommended. For me, I felt it was mandatory.  Anthony Glorioso – Food Science Basics 2017
