What our students say

marjorie

“Handling a fulltime job and studies at the same time requires a good level of planning and prioritization. It means that you can put food on the table while at the same time gaining the skills to build a wonderful new future. Anyone can cook but to be a good cook, a passionate cook, and a confident cook it takes particular care and attention.

International Culinary Studio helped me to pursue my dreams because I can study while I am working, and I don’t need to go to school and I have flexible time, so I balance my study and work. Taking online classes is more convenient, affordable, and effective. While I am studying, I’ve learnt a lot of things that can change on a daily basis, but my chef mentor keeps me motivated to do the best that I can. Online courses are designed to be equally as rigorous and demanding as traditional courses, you need to stay motivated even on the bad days and keep reminding yourself of why you are doing it.”
