Culinary Training from the Heart


I would like to think I have the most rewarding job in the world because I don’t just train the Chefs of the next generation but I am with them in their journey of realizing their dreams. It never ceases to amaze me how an instructor like me could lead the path of the culinary industry by imparting knowledge and experiences to the young and enthusiastic minds of my students.

At ICCA, we have three months to inspire and mould our students’ passion towards food. I’m not going to lie but those three months are intensive, we make sure that we give them the training and experience that they need. “Tough love” as they say brings out the best in an individual. We train the students to bend and adapt to the reality of the industry but we don’t break them because, at the end of the day, the goal is to give them the world-class training that they deserve and not make their lives miserable.

I will never forget one of the most heartfelt moments I have had as an instructor, a student actually cried on the day of his graduation because of the impact I had in his life, moments like these make me love my job even more and motivates me to always give our students  the best educational experience here at ICCA.

Building their confidence, making their weaknesses their strengths and instilling the right information in them is what will help them in their bright future as a Chef. A student once told me, “Chef, let me tell you one thing, every day when I enter my kitchen I always remember your philosophy which is to cook from your heart.”
