“I was proud to be awarded a Scholarship from International Culinary Studio which enabled me to study and become qualified in the New Zealand Certificate in Cookery Level 4.

I had over 20 years experience working as a chef all over the world, even cooking for the rich and famous. I also owned my own yacht culinary school in Antibes, South of France. Being awarded the scholarship meant I could proudly have the New Zealand culinary certification!”
