When you decide to learn cooking professionally, you can do it for various reasons. Some do it because they want to have a career in the culinary industry, and some, simply for the need to learn more about their love for food. In either case, cooking is something one could start learning at any age regardless of their educational background.
I have seen many joining the school after quitting a prestigious and highly paid job to follow their passion for being a part of the culinary industry. For them, nothing matters as much as their love for cooking. Sometimes they would even have company to learn & share the same passion, and also to do something together in the future.
Yes, that’s one major aspect of a culinary school. It’s not like any other education system, here you are learning food and anyone who has a passion for food can join a culinary school. And the best part is if you think you share that passion with any of your loved ones you can join the school together and build up something even better for your future.
We at ICCA have witnessed couples, mothers & daughters, siblings and friends joining hands to have a well bonded culinary journey. For them it’s not only a learning time but is also an opportunity to discover a new side to each other while bonding over cooking.
It’s true that when you try to learn something in your loved one’s company the chances of enjoying the whole learning process is much more than the conventional way. For instance, take the Emirates crew that come for weekly lifestyle classes, just because they work together and are familiar with each other, the whole session they have here is full on fun and laughter while learning to make interesting dishes.
Whether it’s professional or any other cookery program, ICCA Dubai has always been a favourite culinary hub to both families and students where education is much more than just theory and practical. It is a new way of learning food!
