The idea was to converge the love for food with excellence, and to deliver the same, they invited chefs from renowned hotels to coaching students. Starting from one workshop a month, now they have reached to a pace of conducting 6 weeks Certificate Courses. The students who are a part of course are trained in high tech studio which has designed as per international standard.

Future strategies:

After conducting 6 weeks Certificate Courses, soon they are planning to introduce certified courses which will be affiliated to International universities. They have a plan to support the skilled development programme of government and support the students who want to develop the skill to become future chefs. (It is only skilled development). This step would help students to get skilled jobs in kitchen and kick-start their careers in this industry. They would be given International exposure in many countries to enhance their culinary skills.There are lot more in the store, for all the food lovers, learners and amateurs.
