Food preparation and production, commonly known as culinary arts, is a skill set that will never go out of time. However, to excel in this industry requires accumulated experience, persistence, and to a large extent – passion and a pinch of talent. So if you are gifted with a pair of hands that can handle a pan and spatula skilfully, and can vividly form the taste of a dish with spices and poultry dancing in your mind, talk to us to learn more about how you can turn your talent and passion into a successful career by attending this program.

This certification program approved under the MSC (a.k.a. SKM) syllabus will help you improve your food preparation and production techniques and learn how to manage the pandora of every chef – the kitchen effectively. The cooking skill sets you will be learning include breakfast, appetizers, main courses, and desserts which are western cuisine-focused, rice and farinaceous production, and soup, stocks, and hot sauce production.

As a pre-requisite to graduate, you will require 3 months of on-the-job training which we will post you to restaurants at the leading hotels or F&B establishments. As the pioneer and a leader in culinary arts education, we are confident that this program will open doors to the world of culinary to you.
