Adalbert Raps scholarships for qualification as a spice sommelier

With the annual scholarship competition, Adalbert-Raps-Stiftung pursues the goal of preserving the knowledge of spices, supporting its further development and making it usable for people - and this already since 2014! The three scholarships of 3,000 euros each include both the course fees and the costs for overnight stays.

Since 2014, those with an affinity for spices in the food and catering industry have had the chance to win one of three coveted annual scholarships from Adalbert-Raps-Stiftung , each worth 3,000 euros, to qualify as a spice sommelier. The seminar series is organized by the Genussakademie Bayern. During the 15-day qualification, which is divided into five blocks and extends over a period of five months, participants will learn to distinguish between, practically use and combine different spice varieties and blends. The training to become a spice sommelier covers the topics of sensory analysis, spice science, quality assurance, food pairing and food completing, garden and wild herb lore, healing and health effects, communication with guests, and a themed dinner. Professionals who have completed their training and have a corresponding job in the food sector (industry, craft, trade, gastronomy) can apply for the scholarships at Adalbert-Raps-Stiftung .
