Culinary Arts Schools in the Philippines

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

A growing number of Filipinos are enrolling in culinary arts schools because cooks and chefs are reportedly in demand in Australia, Macau, Maldives, and Europe.

A chef in a cruise ship can earn as much as US$4000 a month that’s why there are already 8 culinary arts schools in Metro Manila alone. The tuition fee however can range from 200,000 pesos to 700,000 because aside from the training, you also pay for the expensive ingredients used during cooking sessions. Here are some of the culinary arts schools in the Philippines.

    ok ba ang SKD academy ?

  2. Mr.Optimistic says:

    Kahit anong kurso pa ang kunin mo kung dika interesado maliit ang chance na gumaling ka sa kinuha mong kurso……costly education does not mean quality teaching……be wise….if you can afford spending much then it’s fine. But if you consider time and money as well then dun ka sa mura pero dagdagan mo ng self study. I can say na hindi lahat ng Graduate ng magaganda or should I say expensive/popular school ay naging maganda ang career right after graduation….maraming nakatapos sa di kilalang school pero successful pagdating sa work….wag magmadali you can make your future better by proper planning and execution. God Bless All.

    I’m from qc pero sa pampanga pa ako nag aaral ng culinary more on kitchen kami & i can say marami akong natutunan dahil super friendly ng mga instructor ko every other day akong nagttravel bukod sa affordable na marami ka tlgang matututunan. Gaya nga ng sabi ng iba wala naman sa school yan it’s up to you kung magsisink in ba sa utak mo mga pinag aralan mo.

    Hi everyone.. Im currently enroll in one of the culinary school here in philippines and im waiting for the orientation that would be held on june 9, 2012. Im very much excited on the start of the classes on june 19. I have researched and went to alot of culinary school to know the comparison and to see the facilities myself and i saw the difference. When you first enter the school you should feel comfortable and welcome plus the student studying on the school itself are happy, some of the school not like that and u can tell as well that they are bored. School should be organize in presenting their courses and must know how much is the time that youre going to spend on their kitchen.the global, i saw alot of potential on that school. I believe its worth my money at all. Some of the school are quite expensive but not this school. And lastly, i have read alot of blog also about the other school and some students are complaining…i can tell which school are good. Not only pertaining to one but im happy with the one ive chosen.. Goodluck!,

  10. ChinataGirl says:

  22. greg says:

    short course man o hindi, dapat madami padin exposure sa kitchen. tsaka pag short course, dapat mas extensive ang kitchen. share lang,.

  23. Kaibigang osso buco says:

  26. yupie says:

    sana naman bumilis ang phasing namin dito sa ischam! ang bagal bagal magturo ng mga instructors! sinipa lang ata ng mga hotel tong mga to eh,.

  27. rutch says:

    i inquired at treston yesterday. my gad! SUPER mahal. who will pay for such tuition. sayang lang tapos kaunti lang matututunan mo hearing from their students.

  28. Hi my family member! I wish to say that this post is awesome, great written and include approximately all significant infos. I?d like to peer more posts like this .

  29. nikkolo says:

    hahaha..eto, isa pa..may nakilala kami ng kaibigan ko na student ng MIHCA.puro yabang wala naman ibubuga.basta may dala syang brownies. ang tigas tigas.

  30. dess says:

    mihca students as well! i saw a couple of students na nagyoyosi. yeah they dont look young pero di ba, imagine, kung sila ang magluluto for you, eeeeew lang?

  31. nick says:

    i saw global studnets. hay naku. uniform is sloppy. parang bagong gising lang!haha

  32. kelly says:

    my brother is from aha. for sure international sila. sa ibang bansa nga mother school nila eh. o di ba! susyal!

  33. grace says:

    AHA is the best…and they offer Diploma courses not just certificate …..Best in discipline which will be helpful esp if you go abroad

  34. Daniel says:

    we ate at Uper East. two thumbs up for their food! FYI, Upper East is the training lab of american hospitality academy or aha. regards to aha for creating this restaurant.

  35. Anonymus says:

    im an AHA student. galing ako sa ibang culinary school pero lumipat ako sa AHA since much cheaper pero maganda ang quality of education. if i were you all, bago kayo magsabi ng di maganda, check it yourself at baka kainin nyo yang mga sinasabi nyong di maganda.

  36. Fin says:

    @saiferdin, i’m a student there now, 8 chefs will be instructing, 5 are expats, drop by ka minsan sa school, check the place, it’s good, , , hindi yun fly-by-night na school, grad na ako ng hrm sa ust, and i’ll say, it it hard, mahirap pero worth it, matututo ka,

    At the end australian guys will test you if you desrve to pass, , ,

  37. jam says:

    gustong gusto magenrol sa culinary school kaso im still finishing may undergraduate course i’m still a 3rd year college student… after grad hopefully makapagenroll ako sa culinary school… siguro makapagipon2 na din ng pangenrol. hehehe. ask ko lang if paano ba ang entrance exams sa culinary schools? super thank you :))

  38. Saiferdin says:

    Any ISCAHM students here? I’m planning to enroll this coming January. Mahirap ba entrance exams nila don? Thank you :D

  39. jenny says:

    you’re right coy! yan naman kasi hirap satin eh. hindi pa nga nasusubukan, reklamo na agad. hindi na tayo naubusan ng reklamo. gusto natin isusubo na satin lahat. pano pa tayo matututo nyan.

  40. coy says:

    being a chef is not easy. pero kung ngayon palang ay punong puno na kayo ng reklamo, wag na kayo magculinary!

  41. coy says:

    kasi may ipagyayabang naman. yung mga naproduce nilang students ay talagang may quality. sumikat sa sariling paraan at hindi dahil sa mga tv shows.

  42. lois says:

    ang yabang naman ng aha.

  43. 1 says:

    life in the kitchen is different from what you think it is….asked yourself 100 times…if you want to give much of your time to this profession…yes it may have a lot of opportunities to offer..hindi ka kagad yayaman sa profession na ito gaya ng sinasabi sa tv na mga balita …if you really want to become a chef…you must have the heart and passion….it is not about what school…youll be the one to dictate your future as a chef…schools will only teach you the basic.

  80. samson says:

    cronkkko how can i respect you when you know nothing and i have to teach you everything

  81. Crunk says:

    @Samson – I never said na chef ka na agad, please check my statement. Ang training kasi is for us to work sa kitchen and work our way up through perseverance and determination. Alam ko yun na hindi ka chef agad dahil malabo yun, it takes respect from your peers, from critics and from people, plus the proper accreditation for you to earn the title of a chef.

  82. samson says:

    7 months chef ka na?

    # Crunk Says:
    May 17th, 2011 at 10:17 am

    Sa MIHCA 7 months na training na inooffer nila without increasing the tuition fee, so mas extensive na sya even before ka pa lumabas for OJT.

    galing mo pag graduate mo tatanongin kita kung ano alam mo baka mapahiya ka lang

    it takes years to become a chef not seven months ano matututo mo sa seven months

  89. Robbie says:

    Finally, I’ve narrowed down my choices to three. Napuntahan ko na din yung three schools and ok naman facilities ng bawat isa. I’ve asked my dad earlier to take a copy of the payment schemes of each school para ma-review nya kase sya naman magbabayad. Ang sagot lang, kaw na bahala kung san mo gusto. The last factors na lang is yung difference ng course outline and yung location. I live in Tondo, Manila BTW. Now, the last step is what school to choose from:

    CACS in San Juan
    ISCAHM in Katipunan
    Enderun in Taguig

    I need your help guys on deciding what school to choose. Anyway, feeling ko safe naman ako kahit saang school ako bumagsak sa 3.

I decided na sa ISCAHM or GCHM. ano po ba mas better? may OJT ba ung dalawa? uhm. pero eto pa, gusto ko ng culinary pero d ako gnun kasure at dcu ganun kahilig magluto, until now nga d pcu nagluluto na as in dish tlg, besides im a frsh H.S graduate. SO, wat do u think? ipupursue ko ba itong culinary or i’ll go for a degree course? PLEASE, i really need an advice. :((

    yung husband ko nagOJT sya sa italiannis kasi dun nagwork friend nya. yung friend nya mataas na posisyon sa italiannis as in yung naguutos utos na sya. knowing that HNDI SA NAKAPAGTAPOS NG COLLEGE. highschool grad lang sya. mas mataas pa posisyon ny sa italiannis 5x kesa dun sa ktrabaho nyang GRAD ng ISCAHM. imagine ha isang high school grad lang sa public pa tas mas mataas posisyon sa culinary career kaysa dun sa nagaral sa sikat na culinary school na former executive chefs ang teachers tpos 320,000/year ang tuiton.
    THINK ABOUT IT. EXPERIENCE and skills ang tinitignan in MOST resto’s/hotel. pag magaling at MASIPAG ka aangat ka talaga sa buhay in ur culinary career. d porket sosyal school mo e chef kna kagad!

  111. Robbie says:

    @April: MIHCA’s 180k. certificate course for 4 months.

    I’m just curious with the difference of getting the certification from the Diploma. Most of the popular schools offers a diploma for a 1 or 2 year course. Enderun offers certification only for 400k for 15 month schooling. I’m still not sure where I can learn the most with these schools either they offer certification or diploma.

    Although based on the reviews, I heard a lot of good stuff with ISCAHM. However, I’m still not sure where to go since I also like the offer of CACS since they cover both Culinary and Pastry for a lesser cost. I’ve read this thread and still undecided on what school to choose.

    Here are the schools on my list:
    CCA
    CACS
    ISCAHM
    Enderun
    MIHCA
    AICA

  112. Yanyan says:

    how much is the tuition fee is MIHCA??? i need to know! THANKYOU!!!!

  113. ZENITHLEN says:

    that was a long read. anyway, as for Culinary Schools here in the Philippines, I believe ISCAHM has made a name for itself. For years CCA has also been being talked about and there are a number of graduates from there who have become successful entrepreneurs. Culinary Institutes basically teach the following and you have to keep an eye out for these if you really really want a career in the culinary scene:
    1. Food Safety, Hygiene and Sanitation. Should cover food microbiology, HACCP, policy analysis and OSHA.
    2. Knife Skills. Proper handling of knife, selecting and maintaining knife quiality. Basic Cuts and all that jazz.
    3. Ingredient Orientation, you know the fresh produce, meat, dry, liquid, stuff and stuff.
    4. Food Preparation Methods: Frozen, Chilled, Moist Heat, Dry Heat, Combination Heat
    5. Food Costing
    6. Menu Planning
    7. Food Styling
    8. Kitchen Organization and Operations

    to make the curriculum a cut above the rest would be the incorporation of OJTs. and of course the quality and method of instruction. sometimes you got the best chefs in the world but they can’t transfer the knowledge to the students.

    bottomline, if you know what you want to be and you really want to go for it, ask yourself if you want the “anti-social” life of a chef hehe! think about it, Christmas, New Years and all those happy holidays when your family is complete and at home celebrating, you are in the kitchen in the peak hour of service. 16 hours a day of no sitting except when you have to go to the loo or eat lunch or whatever food break. 2 hours to 4 hours of sleep if you’re lucky. plus the fact that the possibility to getting yelled at (even if it isn’t your fault and you just happen to be there) is very high. if you can take all that and still smile, then the culinary profession is for you.

    sure it it glamorous and cool to be able to dispatch well plated gourmet dishes. but the story behind it all is with a lot of hard hard hard work. blood, sweat and tears.

    no matter how high end your culinary school is, once you’re on the mainstream of operations, everyone is in equal footing. culinary school gives you the edge but the bulk of the success is still up to you. my brother always say that the diploma can only get you to the door. stepping into the room is a completely different story.

  120. Jumbo says:

    @ Kyra
    Among the schools you mentioned, undoubtedly CCA ang may proven track record, kaya lang na-mention mo rin ang “mura”, definitely pinaka mahal ang CCA. ICF’s 2-year course is half the price of CCA, pero maganda din ang program at facilities. CACS and GLOBAL, for me parang wala ka masyado naririnig na nag-eexcel na mga graduates, tingin ko masyadong fast track, medyo hilaw ang turo.Just my opinion, I hope it helps.

    Hi.. just graduated from Global Academy, and all i could say is that the experience was very much rewarding considering their exemplary faculty, well-mannered staff, high-class facilities, and reasonable TF for a premiere culinary education.

    And as Chefatm have said, it’s not about the school… it’s all about your passion.

  134. cc says:

    @Darlyn

    I enrolled in Global Academy, they have 4 branhces in metro manila. Good teachers with many awards under their belts. If location is also important to you like myself (meaning you want to save on transpo cost), it’s a good reason to check it out.

  135. Darlyn says:

    anybody in this room can advice me where to enroll aside from MOST?

  136. Jumbo says:

    @ Butch
    wala na si chef tato sa MOST?He used to handle Halal class.

  137. Butch says:

    I mean MOST Institute Main Campus nila…I heard their Pampanga and Cebu Campus is better….kaso ang layo….

  138. Butch says:

    wasting of money if mag enroll ka sa MOST Campus, I expect yung Muslim Chef nila to handle us pero wala naman pala silang Muslim Chef…im leaving next week to Middle East. I quit from this school…,.

  139. Krissy says:

    @cc: yup, i checked last saturday morning. i was happy when i got the info on how much the tuition costs. thanks ha. but i guess di ko naabutan ung sa AHA kase mga after lunch nako nakatawag. I read the comments above bout AHA’s tuition pero im not sure if those are updated. Il check it later nalang. thanks anyway!

  140. Crustulum says:

    it’s funny, i’ve been observing this forum. and just by the people’s comments, you can tell who really has passion,discipline, and respect for culinary arts. but then again, who am i to assume things, right?

  141. cc says:

    @krissy

    Yes Global Academy…..GCHA.

    Check it out, I am pretty happy as the tuition fees are reasonable.

  142. Krissy says:

    Hi.. can anyone tell me how much is the tuition in AHA? thanks!

  143. Krissy says:

    @cc: hi.. ung global na sinasabi mo GCHA?

  146. Deborrah says:

    try to visit MIHCA also, they have 180k (all in) for 7 months, intensive training. visit also their facilities, its awesome!

  147. Jumbo says:

    @ Gab
    Why don’t you try ICF , around 450k for a two-year diploma course.

  148. Gab says:

    i went to iscahm and enderun today, . . there’s a 40k difference in the price but enderun has 18 months(correct me if i’m wrong) and iscahm has 14 months, . . is the 30k worth it for the extended 4 months? iscahm is 360k, then add a few more for the mid term ingredients i think, then your good. while enderun offers the 14 month course for 386k++ (would not exceed 410k, inclusion of a set of victorynox knives). i’m still not decided, can somebody tell me what has more quality and value between the two?

  151. Chefatm says:

    I graduated from CCA batch 98-2000, worked and trained in the U.S , Australia and Middle East. Based from my years of experience, it doesn’t matter from what school you came from, I know of people who graduated fresh from prestigious culinary schools who became executive chefs soon after graduation because they had the money to put up their own restaurants or had the right connections. Just because you graduated from a culinary school hindi ibig sabihin chef ka na. you have to work your way from the bottom to executive or corporate chef position, if you can handle extremely stressful situations, run the finances of a restaurant business effectively, handle staff effectively and be able to create your own dishes with passion and you are truly dedicated to your craft then you can call your self a chef. Huwag kayo maging mayabang sa mga makakasama niyo sa kitchen magtrabaho na hindi nagtapos sa culinary school, from my experience these line cooks who learned from experience work faster and can handle more pressure compared to rich kid grads ng mga kilalang school, some of them are even more successful than culinary school graduates, why? because they were passionate and that they had to prove themselves to people who look down on them.

  152. L Lawliet says:

    OHH.. I forgot something… Kahit anung school ka pa nangaling, kahit gaano ka kagaling, kahit gaano ka pa kautak… after graduate just like in college u’ll start at the bottom.. it doesn’t mean na nag aral ka nang culinary ibig sabihin nyun CHEF ka na :)

    Na eearn yung title na CHEF hindi to binabayaran… except kung mag tayo ka ng saliri mong resto after grad.. but you must be a prodigy kung gusto mong mag survive :D

  153. Jumbo says:

    @ 6inch
    so what resto is good enough for you??? so we’ll know what school you’re from.

  154. Bobby Fillet says:

    @6inch Says
    REALLY? Cravings at CCA Kitchen is awful, awful? Is that the one at the Eastwood Mall?
    What made you say it’s awful?
    I was planing to eat there bec of their entrees:

    Slow Braised Beef Short Ribs with Risotto P360
    Beef Pot Roast with Sour Cream Potato Puree P395
    Rib Eye Steak with Balsamic Au Pouvre P645
    Braised Pork Belly with chive poato puree P345

    Have you tried eating at “The Goose Station” because it’s a Global Academy Resto.

  155. 6inch says:

    Craving, CCA? Loop Awful Dining, FEU? Cafe Isabel, CACS ?

    awful, awful “restaurants” after you eat in these places you can be certain that the impression you get is a reflection of what these schools are capable of!

    @ Chef J and Carl’s Junior
    Hahahaha! I bet you’re one and the same person! Imagine, Chef J, out of nowhere praises ICF with a curse and in a very arrogant manner, then 5 hours later(the fastest reply ever recorded in MUKAMO history!), an ICF hater in the name of Carl’s Junior comes out and discredits ICF! NICE STRATEGY CHEF J /CARL’S JUNIOR! May galit ka sa ICF? O kinakabahan ka sa ICF?
    ICF has very modern and nice facilities, the curriculum was created by the best minds in the industry, it is an improved version of what other schools have.
    ICF is owned by the Pancake house Group but is under a totally independent culinary team. It is run by a team of culinary educators with years of culinary experience.
    Mr. Carl’s Junior, kung kabado ka sa ICF wag ka na manira. The culinary industry is big enough for all GOOD schools to succeed, kung walang kwenta yan school mo, kabahaan ka na nga!

  161. Carl's Junior says:

    @ Chef J…. I dont think just because you have a NEW school you can be arrogant about it, eh wala pa kayong na aachieve, ang evident na nang insecurity mo!

    And besides, i read about your LOOP “Creative Dining” kuno! On facebook you have stuff like grilled pork chop with vegetables, salad with chicken and nicoise salad…. please for the love of all that is yummy… BE MORE HUMBLE and SHUT UP!

  169. Kellen says:

    @ Jumbo
    according to my cousin, maganda ang program din nila, kya naging interested din ako, ok din nman ung price nila. mukhang reasonable and worth it. ang importante is after graduation merong possibility na magka work. most of their instructors nag work na sa cruise ship and hotels..ung naginterview sa akin dun na instructor nagwork sa cruise ship. are you a chef? sa lahat ng school anong marerecommend mo?

  170. Jumbo says:

    @ Kellen
    Yes medyo mahal CCA,pero hindi naman lahat ng chef nila e mga alumni nila, mge senior chef’s nila are mostly foreign educated. And yung mga alumni nila na mga early batches medyo maganda rin ang education ,kasi dati mga chef nila are all educated abroad. And we have to accept na maganda program nila kaya they were able to produce good graduates. And most of their chefs have extensive industry experience, whether alumni or educated elsewhere. Di ba marami instructor ang Magsaysay na graduates ng CCA?

  171. Kellen says:

    @ Jumbo, ang mahal naman ng CCA! tapos ang chef din nila ung alumni nila. may experience naba ung mga chefs nila??

  172. Kellen says:

    @ Mark, why dont you try to visit ung facilities ng mihca? meron sila sa makati and manila.. try mo muna ivisit ung facilities kc my cousin is currently enrolled there sa makati campus (Walter Mart Mall sa harap ng Don Bosco). Kc under sila ng Magsaysay malaki ung chances na makapag work on board sa cruise ship. Nagvisit kami sa ibang schools, ang mamamahal..tapos ung facilities like kitchen and liit….

  173. Jumbo says:

    @ Mark
    I think CCA is at 1M for the 2-year course.

  174. Jumbo says:

    @ Mark and Jann
    ICF’s tuition is about P450k for the two-year course. Very reasonable for a very extensive curriculum. Check out the facilities at FEU bldg. Sen. Gil Puyat corner Zuellig Loop, Makati City. It is independent from FEU but the location is in the FEU building.Next batch will be in January 2011.

  175. Jann says:

    how much dun sa FEU makati?

  178. Bryan Mills says:

    @ Jumbo;

    I see thanks. Are you a culinary student? from what school?. In your opinion what is your top 5 culinary schools? Is ASHA culinary school a good culinary school?

  179. Jumbo says:

    @ Bryan Mills
    Certificate courses can be as short as one day, depending on the coverage. Nagbibigay lang ng certificate ang mga schools to “certify” that you took that particular course from them. A certificate in complete basic culinary course can range from three months to more than ayear.
    A diploma course is about two years.
    And most culinary schools offer multiple batches a year. Sa ICF, they have January, April, June, August, and October batches. I think CCA also have several batches a year, MOST opens a new batch almost monthly depending on the number of enrollees.

  180. Bryan Mills says:

    @ Jumbo:

    Mga ilan years po ang certificate course? diploma course?…. Ang culinary schools po ba usually lahat sila ay June din ang simula mg ,ga classes?

  183. porak says:

    guys help naman, if kayo ang papipiliin sa SKD or sa MOST, san kau mageenrol??

  184. Jumbo says:

    @ Brian Mills
    I really don’t know the difference between a diploma and a certificate course, napansin ko lang ang diploma course is longer. And common sense dictates that the longer you study the more you learn. Take for example CCA, they offer a two-year diploma course, and majority of the leaders in the Food industry today are from CCA.I know a lot of those who patronize this forum are biased to CCA or people from CCA, but we have to accept the fact that there are a lot of good CCA graduates.
    If you are after short term studies, you can consider ISCAHM,MIHCA,GLOBAL, AHA, or the low-end MOST.These schools have made a name for themselves in the culinary arts education. If you want a Diploma in Culinary Arts, you can consider CCA, but if you want a cheaper alternative which also has a very good program and credible educators ,try ICF, it is in FEU Bldg. along Buendia in Makati. Their tuition is less than half of CCA’s but with excellent facilities.

    Hmm.. research ko lang… mas maganda ang makakuha ka ng degree sa Culinary Arts kasi mas maraming options at benefits.. So I think I’ll be going to Enderun..

  197. Dencio says:

    @ cileja
    I’ve met several graduates of MOST Institue in Mandaue and they seem to be doing well in their profession, and they have good words for their school. And I think mura lang tuition.

  198. Dencio says:

    @ Gian

    I also plan to take up a 2 year Diploma course in Culinary, I found this new school in Makati, ICF@FEU. ICF stands for Institute of Culinary Arts and Food Service.It is jointly owned by FEU and the Pancake House group. Their tuition is about half of CCA’s and their facilities are new and much better. They have a good curriculum and they seem to have good instructors(they allowed me to sit-in for one day). I have already reserved a slot on their october batch, you might want join that batch too. Ang maganda rin individualized ang lab work, meaning most lab subjects walang groupings,so you work alone, mas matututo ka. You can call the school at 836-2033 loc 128, or visit the campus at FEU bldg.Sen. Gil Puyat (buendia) ave. corner Zuellig Loop, Makati. It’s across RCBC Plaza and beside Columns.

  199. cileja says:

They are known kasi for “being generous” when it comes to jobs.. D ko na talaga alam.. Help guys..

    I am an alumni of MIHCA and I highly recommend my alma mater! I am only turning 25 this October and yet Corporate Chef na ako ngayon.

    Payo ko po sa inyo mga kaibigan, magsumikap. Humanap ng magandang school para sa inyo. Wala sa popularity ng school yan. At the end of the day, Nasa sariling palad niyo pa din ang TAGUMPAY. Salamat po.

  210. Sharmaine says:

    Hi! 4th year high school palang po ako. I just wanna ask if after high school magcculinary na ba agad? Or maghhrm muna ako before magCCA? Thank you. :>

  211. mikee@1 says:

    ISCAHM is the best culinary school in the Philippines. Period.

    No other school comes close. The instructors are the best in the industry.

  212. Compare with other culinary school, MIHCA offers boundless opportunities to its graduates. Since MIHCA is under the umbrella of Magsaysay Maritime Company, they are prioritizing the MIHCA Graduates for possible employment in one of the CRUISE SHIPS.

  213. michelle r keh says:

    I managed to get in touch with a chef and she really recommend ISCHAM. They will help you pursue your career goals and help you land the internship and jobs that you want, even abroad. Their curriculum is designed that way so it is really ideal for people who wish to land a professional career in the culinary world.

    CCA is highly overpriced.

    If you are really confident that you are have the passion and creativity to pursue this field, I think that a school which emphasizes the fundamentals is the best way to go. After all, even in culinary school, you will not be spoon fed.

  214. First Gourmet Academy says:

    For Future Chef. First Gourmet Academy holds diploma classes on a daily basis meaning Mondays to Fridays for 4.5 to 5 hours per day. We focus more on developing your skills therefore you spend more time in the kitchen under the tutelage of our great Swedish chef, Mats Loo together with other European Chefs and distinguished Filipino Colleagues. Rest assure that you will get the best international standard training from FGA.

  215. jm says:

    hi, ask ko lang po kung ok sa MIHCA compare to other certificate programs?
    Interested po ako na mag-enroll dun next month, wala po kasing alumni na nagpopost d2…

    Anyway, goodluck sa ating lahat na papasukin ang culinary industry, sana lahat po tayo ay magtagumpay!

  216. jb says:

    guys ISCAHM OR AHA……SN B MAS OK??? SA ISCAHM —EXECUTIVE CHEF MGA INSTRUCTOR TAPOS TLGANG 15 YRS ABOVE EXPERIENCE NLA IN CULINARY WHILE SA AHA…MY INTERNSHIP ABROAD SPECIALLY SA USA TAPOS MERON DAW NAGVIVISIT NA INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED CHEF ONCE IN A WHILE…AND THEY ARE TELLING NA AFFILIATED CLA SA HYATT,MARRIOTT,RITZ CARLTON,SHERATON KYA MY INTERNSHIP TAPOS AMERICAN SCHOOL DW CLA KYA INTERNATIONAL

  217. futurechef says:

    sa tingin ko olats talaga ang MOST.. you will spend 49k not including the uniforms, knives, clogs, and INGREDIENTS plus hidden charges pa tapos you only meet once a week for 6 months?? that’s more than 2k per session!! buti kung maganda facilities nila. pero marami naman sila achievements and awards. baka okey naman turo don.

    nalilito pa rin ako kung sa global ako mag eenroll o sa first gourmet. bakit sa tingin niyo mas okey sa global kaysa sa first gourmet aside from mas mura ang tuition? sa mga taga first gourmet naman, ano ang meron sa inyo na wala sa global academy? ilang hours ba ang classes sa first gourmet? sa global 3.5 hours lang x 4days a week. parang bitin..

    Hello po!

    Im also planning to enroll at MIHCA.. I called their office lately and was surprised that their tuition fee is already P180K. (just did few back reads here and noticed it was P105K then.)

    I just want to ask favor from fellow MIHCANIANS here to share their careers and opportunities after they graduated at MIHCA? I just to clarify some “her say” if its true they’ll assist you in getting a job? I hope you dont mind guys.

  222. prokopz says:

    palong palo ang kusina nila ang laki… lalo sa makati branch… mageenjoy ka talagang magaral sa MIHCA…

  223. prokopz says:

    Ayos sa MIHCA, maraming clang affiliation sa mga cruises at ang saya kasama ng mga chef instructor…para clang “dont leave the student behind” sulit ang professionalism na ituturo syo…

    @chef CK: wow iv’e seen ur name from the top page, loyal!!, hope you could help me in someway one of these days, thanks in advance!

    kudos to every!

  225. yongyong says:

    you know what? it really depends to what situation you are into…
    1st if you belong to a well-off family it’s much better that you go abroad and study there..
    2nd if you dont have enough “capacity” to pay for your culinary education,,, then just finish whatever course you can,,, or work for it…that is if you really want to study culinary…
    3rd if you really want to study and you have the capacity,,,you need to know where you want to work or what work do you want…( if your not planning to build your own resto or WTv)

    for me because i want to work at a cruise ship for now then ill go for MIHCA and then sooner or later ill just study at any prestigious school abroad…after i save up money to pay for it… coz once i finish studying this course im planning to be totally independent… haha…

    happy school hunting everyone… :)

You mentioned na okay yung Crocs kaso nung nagpunta ako sa ATC, pre-order daw yung Crocs Bistro (yung pang kitchen talaga) meaning 1-2weeks ko pa makuha. So ang tagal nun! Pwede ba yung ibang kind ng Crocs? I mean kahit ano basta black/white? Or Besides Crocs, ano pa bang ibang brand na okay na mabibili ko sa ATC/Festi?anywhere sa Alabang. I’m from the South pa kasi. Thanks!

  262. Gail says:

    @chino

    madaming opportunity sa F&B pero syempre based pa din yun sa experienced and skills mo.. i noticed talaga bihira sila tumanggap ng entry level. s0 if i were you, gather ka muna experiences kahit may bayad pag nag intern/ojt go for it.

  263. Gail says:

    musta na mga chef student? been a long time.. where’s my nemesis? hikhikhik

  264. chino says:

  266. rain says:

    @hay naku
    bakit m naman nasabi yan? were you a student of AHA? Because I’m currently one and I can say their method of teaching is just what you would expect in a real kitchen. In other words, sa school pa lang you get the real feel in a real kitchen na. They teach us that being a chef is not all the prestige but all hard work.

  267. judith says:

    I just want to ask kung pwede bang magenroll sa culinary arts kahit di naka graduate ng high shool? Ano ano ba ang recquirements na kailangan?

  271. van says:

    ay ganun po ba..sis esther..salamat po..

  272. esther says:

    @van
    hindi pa kasama ang gastos sa OJT. Pero I think ung OJT naman yata nila is may bayad so ok lang. Baka mabawi mo pa rin ang ginastos mo.

  273. Saikaku says:

    @ Jessica

    Yup sa MIHCA they hire students to work abroad via their cruise ships.

    @ jayJay

    Ang alam ko pinkamagandang HRM course sa PWU or sa CSB.

  274. curious chef says:

    CCA (with acf, servsafe) the best. pinairal niyo kase mga insecurities niyo e. kung sa ibang culinary school kayo.. dun kayo.. wag yung kung anu ano pa cnasbe.. na dahil sa mahal na tuition fee, facilities? .. tss. check niyo muna yung curriculum, subjects.. offered. + with the 2 year course diploma. basta pag CA yung chosen course niyo.. wag masyado magexpect na sobrang cheap yung babayaran.. sacrifice lang yan tska lahat naman tayo may chance to prove ourselves. wag puro sa name ng school nlang.. -curious chef

  275. franz says:

  296. mishca says:

    @LEIGH
    Thanks for the info!
    Wow! Malapit ka na gumraduate! Good luck! Sana makita kita sa Global.
    Btw, hands-on din naman ang Global di ba?

  297. Mina says:

    totoo bng CACS lng ung culinary school n more on hands-on lng? d sya tulad ng ibang schools na mraming lecture?

  298. LEIGH says:

    @jojo: yes may jeep or bus from StarMall to Global

    @mishca: depende naman yan sa performance mo para makakuha ka ng Job. The school will help you naman sa OJT placement. pero it would still depend on your skills and knowledge for you to get accepted. and Yes, I’ve heard of some people who graduated from Global and na-acquire ng hotel or resto kung san sila ng OJT. btw I’m still currently a student. 3 more months! :D

  299. Arthur says:

    Mag kano po ba ang tuition fee sa MICHA kasi i dont have any idea how much it is..
    im a very good cook all i want is diploma and to excel my skills.and where can i find the cheapest and yet good cullinary school here in manila?

  300. dina says:

    @ van
    Subjective kasi ang pagiging best culinary school. It’s really up to you if you want to excel in the field or not. Important na lang siguro na more than the fundamentals of culinary arts ang culinary school na pipiliin mo ay magtuturo ng positive work ethic na kailangan sa kitchen tulad ng disiplina. That is where American Hospitality Academy comes in, I have a first hand experience with the school and I must say naituro nila sa akin ang trait na ito kasabay ng culinary arts xempre pa.

  301. van says:

    san po ba ang pinaka the best na culinary school in philippines?plano ko kasi mag enroll next yr..pls help po

  302. mishca says:

    To all GCHA students/alumni:
    Sure na ba yung pagkagraduate mo may job?I mean do you think it’s possible na dun ka na magwork kung san ka mag-OJT?Saan-saan pwede mag OJT?Ok naman ba yung turo?Mahirap ba?
    Sorry ang dami kong questions. Gusto ko lang kasi makasigurado. Para worth it yung pag-aaral dun.
    Thanks nang marami. :)

  303. M says:

    Guys, hi, I’m new here. :)

    Does anybody here come from Center for Asian Culinary Studies (CACS)?

    Parang maganda kasi yung professional culinary & pastry arts program nila e. Pero does anyone of you know how many students there are in each batch?Thanks!

  304. virtual.surround says:

    is most institute ok? binigay kc nila yung breakdown ng tution fee nila mukhang ang daming hidden charges tulad ng student affairs fee, enrollment fee which are both around 5k tas di pa kasama ingredients. it will cost u around 50k for almost 6months since they have a promo this month. i dont know if its a wise deal. can someone help especially to those who have graduated from there.

  305. mc ash ahmad says:

    elo! po sa mga chef! i really want to take a culinary arts, but di ko lam kung pano magsimula! pagkatapos ng contrata ko dito saudi! uuwi ako pinas para mag aral ng culinary at tsaka wala bang murang tuition pee para sa culinary arts! at ilang months or year ba ang kailangan para makatapos nyan? need reply plzzzzzzzzz!

  306. claud says:

    @jessicadim
    So you study in GCHA? Anong branch? When will you graduate?

  307. dina says:

    I still go for AHA. I know for a fact that beyond the kitchen basics they also show you kung ano nga ba ang buhay ng isang chef sa kusina. They also teach you discipline which is much needed para magtagumpay sa field mo.

  308. mondayblues says:

    i cant seem to find the group liga kulinarya at FB. is that the real name?

  309. jessicadim says:

    @Princess
    You can be interviewed on the same date that you submit your requirements, but its also best that you email or call them. Global academy is very considerate when it comes to students from provinces. They do the processing in a day as not to waste your time going back and fourth.

  310. jojo says:

    Hey guys! Pano makapunta ng Global-Alabang from StarMall? may jeep ba or something? Thanks a lot!

  311. Saikaku says:

    @ ilovesuchi

    I agree with you, at the end of the day dapat iconsider pa din yung galing at ugali ng mga instructors. Some has good school but bad people.

    @ Mina Francella

    I think puede ka na mag-pass ng requirements sakanila ngayon, August na siguro yung start ng class ng susunod na batch. Inquire ka din sakanila if you have any questions regarding the application.

    MIHCA will only endorse you sa mga hotel and restaurants around metro manila. pero kung sa Cruise Ship ka naman ng MAgsaysay balak magwork mas madali ka makakapasok since MIHCA is affiliated with Magsaysay Cruise Lines.,

  312. marc says:

    hi every1, esp. MIHCA alumni, me mga nakapagtrabaho na ba seño esp.abroad (with d help of MIHCA), plano ko kc mag-enroll dun dahil kelangan ko makapag abroad, cyempre ang tuition fee eh hindi biro dats y i need aasurance kung mapapaalis nila ako cyempre tatapatan ko ng hardwork at best performance yun…tnx & God bless…..

  313. mojojojo says:

    @Regi
    P40,000.00 Upon Enrollment
    P30,000.00 Second payment in post dated check

  316. princess says:

    im after the basics lang po muna eh. second course. alabang ka din? im planning to enroll na next week dapat ngayon but i wasnt able to get a med cert since our family doctor is out of the country. ayun, im from bataan po but i’ll be staying in las pinas lang din by june. ikaw, have you enrolled?

  317. mojojojo says:

    @princess
    aw. I’ll take the Grand Diploma. Mag Grand Diploma ka na rin. Btw, where are you from?

  318. princess says:

    Hi! anyone here who will take the Diploma in Professional culinary arts inGlobal Alabang this coming June??? :) To anyone from GLOBAL: I just wanna ask if the interview is being done on the same day of passing of the requirements for admission? Because i’ll be coming from the province pa and it would be a big hassle if i will go back pa ulit to manila for the interview.

    To saikaku,

    Ok, Salamat! try ko pumunta jan.

    hanggang kylan ung application period nila jan and kylan ung start ng classes for the 2-yr course ng culinary arts for 2010?

    To all:
    kung kau papipiliin, san s tingin nyo ang ms mgandang culinary school? ung sa Enderun, MIHCA, ISCAHM, o AHA?

  323. Saikaku says:

    @ Mina Francella

    Hi Mina, MIHCA has its Makati branch. I actually had my lessons there. Its located at Walter Mart, Makati. visit ka minsan dun. It used to be own by Henny Sison ngayon second branch na siya ng MIHCA.

    I hope nakatulong ako.
    goodluck.

  324. Saikaku says:

    @ Danna

    Yup maganda sa MIHCA, I made the right choice and have no regrets at all. MIHCA is affiliated sa Magsaysay cruise lines kaya mas malawak yung professional career. But of course you have to be really GOOD at school.

    If you’re familiar with Johnson and Wales university of America, Prestigious Career University siya which developed the curriculum of MIHCA. basta If I were you inquire ka nalng,

    goodluck!

  325. Mina Francella says:

    hi, does anyone of you know if there’s a culinary arts school near makati? And are there any other schools than CCA that offers an international succession degrees?

  326. rads says:

    hi cute,

    i came from auckland i work in a kitchen there as cook but i dont have any certificate but my boss went to 3months schooling for certificate only and he got his residency and some of my co worker went to schooling also but they are still denied…

    u can use your certificate but still u need to contribute huge tax to be approved as a residence there.. certificate cannot stands alone..

    3 months schooling for certificate cost 3,500 NZ$

  327. Cute says:

    Why not consider studying certificate in culinary arts abroad? like in new zealand, australia and canada. Madali lang makakuha ng student visa at pwde ka pa mag work and later on as permanent resident. Diba?

  328. danna says:

    @migi: thanks po .. :p

  329. jessicadim says:

    Global has really good chef instructors. Internationally trained. I made a good choice with Global.

  330. adrianne728 says:

    I recommend FGA, First Gourmet Academy.. Reasonable fees and very accomodating people.. From the person i inquired from (Ms. Emy) to the staff and instructors.. I considered Global Academy before but when I learned that their ratio is 1:21 instructor:student I realized that FGA is a lot better, 1:12. Facilities, people, curriculum, probably the best, in terms of affordability and quality. I’ll be joining the July 2010 batch!!! :)

  333. tendril says:

    guys my alam ba kyo skul for culinary arts na cheap lng???

    ang mahal kc lalalo na dun sa AICA…

  334. krixia says:

    @anon: actually i forgot to say na there are two AICAs..

    ung AICA ba na sinabi nyo ay Academy for International Culinary Arts? ‘Cause there’s actually another AICA.. Asian Institute of Culinary Arts so I was a bit confused..

    Academy for International Culinary Arts is the one located in pasig right? or i guess meron pa ata sila branch.. then the other AICA which is Asian Institute of Culinary Arts located in Gil Puyat.. ayun lang.. haay.. hirap maghanap ng school :(

  335. Migi says:

    Danna…try mo dalawin both schools para makita mo ang facilities tapos pinaka importante eh sa tingin ko ang instructors din kasi sila ang mag tuturo ng experiences and technniques sa kithcen. Kung mag-aaral ka rin ng culinary dapat sigurado ka maganda ang training kundi baka mangulelat karin sa job training at hiring, sayang lang pagod and pero mo. Maganda din ang MIHCA pero nagtatanong tanong din ako parang mas maganda sa First Gourmet…panalo instructors nila dun…bait pa.

  336. anon says:

    @krixia

    backread, please. there has been some posts about aica already :)

    bring notebook and pen lang. For the clogs, it depends kung sale mabibili mo. Usually wala naman discount yan eh.

  352. Saikaku says:

    Hi everyone!

    I highly recommend MIHCA. it has the best facilities plus tied up pa sila sa Johnsons and Wales University. Top Culinary school sa US. I graduated last year ngayon tapos na ako sa OJT ko. planing to get SOLAS training para makapag-cruise ship na.

    visit nalang kayo sa MIHCA

  353. pilot says:

    to anyone from global..
    what do you need to bring on the 1st day? do you get discount ba pag bumili ng clogs?

  399. Bobby Fillet says:

    Meron title Certified Master Chef (CMC).
    A master chef is an actual professional classification, along the lines of a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). To become a master chef, you must achieve the highest level of certification possible in American culinary arts.

    The only organization capable of awarding the CMC certification is the American Culinary Federation.

    In order to pass the certification program, you have to endure a rigorous eight day long practical exam that tests your culinary knowledge and abilities.

    Topics covered by the test include
    use of ingredients,
    skills and techniques,
    presentation, timing of service and
    safety and sanitation.

    Once you have completed all courses and classes in the Certified Master Chef program, there’s one final test that you must pass before you receive your certification.

    Oh… Really? Paano mo naman nasabi? It seems that napakagaling mo. How come they were able to win in contests like Manila Meets Ming and so on. Ganoon ba sila ka-incompetent?

    oo incompetent sila talaga lang magtanong ka sa mga 5 star hotel tanong mo sa mandarin sa hyatt o sa shangrila .. di naman sila bobo kulang lang ang tinuro sa kanila

  406. CHINNIE says:

    PORCUPINE nope lagi mo suot yun even though lecture lang. wash and wear will do. if you want you can order another set but that won’t be appropriate. and oh! 3 sets ng jackets yun and 2 pants.

  407. CHO says:

    hi poh….mgtatanong po sana pano po yung medical sa MICHA my nakakaalm po ba??/slmt my mgreply po..slmt po..

  408. porcupine says:

    mimi and ravek or anyone from global..

    uniform ba everyday or everytime may lab lang? kase 2 sets of uniform lang yung inclusive sa tuition db? do i need to order another set?

  409. liz says:

    Hi Cydney,
    I agree with you. This is a great site. A lot of mud slinging going around.
    The enrollment periods are different for different schools. The best way to find out is to check their website and give the schools a call.
    Currently I am enrolled at First Gourmet Academy. We have classes starting January 25, February 23 and later on In june.

  410. cydnei says:

    hi guys,

    kudos to everyone for such a fiery site you have ( everyone versus CCA peeps… just kidding)

    on a serious note, i’m thinking of enrolling to a culinary school this year but i don’t know how and where to start. your comments here has helped me a lot in gaining some understanding about the different schools but nowhere does it state when does classes usually start. is this like college where it starts every june? or does different classes start every month?

    kind regards,

  412. chefWanabee says:

    Hi friends
    So far nakapag tour na ako sa 2 schools, enderun at cacs. grabe maganda talga sa enderun pero sobrang mahal, marami na rin ako narinig na bad reviews kasi hindi daw gaanong hands on. sa CACS naman may new classrooms sila, ang ganda ng gamit and they also offer discounts and payment schemes. nakakain pa ako ng food by the students kasi si chef gene ang nagturo doon for that day.
    ngayon iniisip ko kung titingin pa ako sa iscahm, marami kasi nagsabi maganda din facilities nila dun

  415. samson says:

    totoo naman diba students of global are usually last in line usually wala o kulang ang knowledge nila lalo na pag nag ojt

  416. Jon says:

    @Samson

    Bakit ba galit na galit ka sa global? What’s your problem dude? Sigurado ka bang Samson ang name mo? Baka naman “EX” GF ka ni Pengson na naging bitter kaya bina-bad mouth mo sha wahahahaha

  417. CK says:

    @SAMSON

    tama si ravek..lahat ng culinary school basic…para sabihin ko sayo meron pa mga CA schools na mas 4days lang ang culinary pero may matututunan ka na…depende lang kung kaya mo ung ganung information overload…ang culinary fundamentals ng enderun is 5days pero ang nagtuturo is executive sous chef ni alain ducasse…

  418. RAVEK says:

    @SAMSON
    — “BASIC” lang kasi un understand?! , and you will be a chef through your experience,
    not by “BOOK”.

  419. mojojojo says:

    Here you go again, Samson.
    What’s your problem ba? Detractor ka ba ng Global na hinire ng ibang schools? Di mo naman kailangan na manlait nang ganyan nang paulit ulit. Yes, people have their own opinions but we should be responsible enough to know our limits. :)

  420. samson says:

    global teaches you less than 200 hours ano? after 200hours sa global chef kana.
    mas matagal pa ang apprentice nya kaysa sa classroom nyo
    less than 200 hours chef kana ang galing ni pengson super teacher ata sya
    3 oras sa isang araw magiging chef ka hahahahahahaha kalookohan

  438. liz says:

  444. 3cLipzZ says:

    joyce., actually nde pa q gradu8..for me kc.,mas mgnda kung my board n ang culinary and my mga license n ang mga “certified chefs”.,pra nmn mging high rated ang chefs d2 sa pinas…wat do u think.?and besides.,it’s not just a simplistic profession..

  445. joyce says:

    3cLipzZ, cgro graduate kana kaya gs2 mo magkaroon ng board exam para konti nlng mging chefs after 5 yrs. hehe

  446. 3cLipzZ says:

    @ erika:

    yes.,nkita q rin ung adds ng treston.. for me.,i think ok dun..

  447. 3cLipzZ says:

    dapat mag karoon na rin ng board exam ang culinary arts.,my mga skul na nag ooffer ng bs culinary arts, so 4 yrs xa..ung bs nutrition and dietatics my board..

  448. CHINNIE says:

    @ JOYCE yeah not all people are EASY LEARNER. Pero if elaborate naman yung topic why would spend alot of hours pondering the lecture right? And according to our chef “BASIC LANG ANG TINUTURO, YOU’LL LEARN MORE IF YOU PRACTICE AT HOME AND OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL” w/c I think is correct. Basics lang naman sa school right? Outside the school ka maglelearn. I’m just saying this as it is. And I’m not promoting my school, I just give opinions about Global the way I see it. Hookay?? No need to raise your temp. here.

  449. anon says:

    i just noticed, paulit ulit lang ang pinag-uusapan. regarding the number of hours, namention na yan dati dito. haha. anyway, the thing is, we should not fight. yun lang yun. this is open to EVERYONE. be open minded na lang. we all have our own perspective eh. basta comment lang ng comment. pero siyempre dapat yung appropriate naman at hindi yung nakakabastos masyado. :)

  450. liz says:

    I actually think that you all are right. We are not here to talk bad about culinary schools in general, this is supposed to be informative. However I think that Jonze have a point when he is making all of us prospective students aware of that the price when choosing a culinary school is not all important. You also should be aware of the amount of hours you are actually paying your tuiton fee for. A lot of professional chefs tell me that the only way of becomig a good chef is to work hard for it. Spend all the time you can in school and try to learn as much as possible.

  451. Bentot says:

    hi! bago lang ako dito. saw it on Google. kakatuwa magbasa ng mga comments, parang culinary school wars.. :D

    i myself am a culinary student, but already worked for 3yrs, and already graduated college last 2005. next year, around feb, gragraduate na rin ako ulit, for my 2nd diploma on my school. i won’t mention my school muna, baka pagsimulan na naman ng away eh. anyway, palitan ko na lang ang topic.

    WHY NOT USE THIS SITE TO BOND US CULINARY STUDENTS? ok naman eh, di ba? why don’t we just compete with other field? hehehe! naisip ko lang.

    hello uli.

  452. joyce says:

    sookie, hindi nmn bullcrap at maybe pag calculate mo 22o nmn cnsbi about global. yes, ung blog na e2 is trying to help poeple who are interested in taking up culinary arts. hindi ba nkaka2long sa kanila na malaman kng anu ung masmakakamura sa kanila? and the numbers of hours is really important pag dating sa learning, the longer you stay in school, the more knowledge you will get, cympre depende na sa student yun. It seems that you are saying, na kht hnd matagal ung pag stay sa school ay ok lang kung easy learner ka and nakadepende sa galing ng pagtuturo, what if you are not an easy learner, hindi nmn lahat ng ng enroll sa school ay easy learner. and what if the quality of education that jonze is saying are the same, but you spend less time in global. who gets learn more diba?

  453. sookie says:

    i agree w/ chinnie! it’s not about the number of hours per day, it’s the learning that you can get in the class. i think, once the school is accredited by TESDA, it means that the school complied to the requirements. people, we’re not here to say bullcrap in each culinary school that we know or that we’re against of. instead, we are trying to help those who are interested to take up culinary arts. so let’s be civil ok.

  454. erika says:

    hi!

    have you guys heard of Treston International College?
    nakita ko kasi sa ads nila na they offer 4 year course ng BS management major on Culinary.
    maganda ba dun? pls rep kayo. i really need your help. thanks guys :)

  455. LEIGH says:

    I don’t think Global is expensive, especially if you add ‘transpo fees’ (like gas and parking / jeep, bus, tricycle, etc.) to your computation. what I mean is, location is one important factor to consider in choosing a school.

  456. RAVEK says:

    @John , and Jonze ,
    Not all batch in global are 20+ people per batch , the maximum is 21 ,

    @Edrian,
    Hnd malaki sweldo ng chef , minimum lang din , pero xmpwe pag nasa mganda hotel ka and may position ka malaki sweldo mo , or sa ibang bansa ka mag trabaho malaki ang sweldo ng chef pero kung dito sa pinas minimum lang , I’m currently studying at global ortigas.

  457. CHINNIE says:

    Global is not expensive. Knife set and 2 hard bound books are included in the payment. Plus you have a discount. And you don’t need to stay for how many hours listening to the demo. If you are an EASY LEARNER then you’ll get the lecture without any problem. You can’t base your learning on how many hours you stay in your school, but on how elaborate the lecture and on how you can learn are the most important keys.

  458. Jonze says:

    ISCAHM has been around for so many years and have graduated great students. Check that school out

  459. John says:

    I agree with Jonze. Of course you will learn more in a school that you spend more time in. Also as I understand it Global has more than 20 students per batch. In FGA the maximum is 12. The classes are a lot more educational and intimate that way.
    I am joining FGA for their new batch in january. My two friends that are enrolled there now has recommended me to join. My girlfriends sister is enrolled in Global Alabang but she regrets enrolling there. Especially when she found out about First Gourmet Academy.

  460. Jonze says:

    Hi Nic x and everybody else.

    FGA has different payment schemes. The cheapest one ends up at 175.000
    This is more expensive than Global. However do your self a calculation. Find out how much you are really paying by hour. The price that Global charges is very cheap but how many hours do you reall stay in school. Compare this to for example FGA and you will notice that Global is not only twice as much expensive as FGA but the most expensive school in the metro. In FGA you wil spend more than 500 hours in school. In Global a little bit more than 200. Its not difficult where you will learn more, is it…

  461. Edrian says:

    @LEIGH ahh gnun ba . .hmm anu yan tlga bang nov pasukan dyan .. ?/ walang batch ng june .. tska kmzta naman .. 1st day .. enjoy ba ? ..

    @mimi
    uhmm… chef vic ako ehh baet cya…

  473. Johnson says:

    WOW,

    So many Chefs… I could remember 17 years ago that we work in kitchen from 7 am till 11pm with a 2 hr break during the day. Out of 12 months in the working industry of hotels/Resorts and fine restaurants- we had to go to college for 3 months a year just for exams…..This we did for 4 years….. This goes for Apprentice Chef and Apprentice pastry Chef…..

    And Now education for Culinary have become a business and all master of Michelin always teaches us that the knowledge is from mother nature which was given to human… “Its not for human to make a business of knowledge to another human” The Simplicity and Purity of cooking have now become a PHP 300K to 500K…WOW!

    In Europe and the US- We could not be a teacher of any Culinary school unless we have been Executive chef for a minimum of 5 years….HUH— I ask why?
    Chef Christophe said “How could you teach when you have not walk the path of leading your own Brigade- It would be dangerous to have someone with 6 years experience in the industry”. He also said- “You may have work in some of the best restaurants in Europe – But working in one and running one and staying up there is another day to be told”.

    Norbert Gandler (ISCHAM)and Chef See (Endurun) – These boys have run and done it all. Running a hotel with 5 to 7 restaurants, Brigades of hundred. Yeah, I would listen to them.

    You sound intelligent people here, I am sure that you do know and understand this story I have just said… Actually, You may google the requirements to find out how to become a Professor in a Culinary in the Europe and US!!!

    I thought I should share this with you all- Hope it helps.

    For those looking for a culinary school, try Cebu. A bit laid back lifestyle comparedto Manila, though many Cebuanos will dispute that. Our school is the Philippine School of Culinary Arts. We are at Maxwell Hotel Annex Bldg, Escario Street Cebu City. We used to be at Banawa but starting 2nd week Nov 2009 we will be at our new location.
    We offer a ladderized Diploma in Culinary Arts and Patisserie (ladders 5 months, 7 months, 1 year) and a 10 month certificate in Baking and Pastry Arts. ( I understand there is no hard and fast rule about what is a certificate and what is a diploma course, but for our own definition any course that is less than 2 years is Certificate and Diploma course is 2 year program. Understandably culinary courses are kind of on the expensive side because of the need for expensive ingredients. Our courses are individual hands on. Each student ocupies his/her own work station . At final exams of each module, parents maybe invited to sample the work of the students so they can appreciate the progress made. All fees are also inclusive of all that is needed in the classes including chef’s uniform sets, professional knife sets, professional cooking textbook,and all ingredients of course. By January 2010 we will also offer 3 month Certificate in Commercial Cooking, a very affordable course. we also offer cooking for fun courses in the evenings. Included in our comprehensive culinary arts diploma curriculum is a course in Food Science and another in Food preservation for Food Service.

    @chie may culinary school sa alabang, ung global academy. try mo mag-inquire

  552. Semi-Knocked-Down says:

    @ Jeffty
    Choose a school that has a good track record, yung may mga graduates na sa industry.Halos lahat naman ng culinary schools may proven track record na, mahirap kasi sa mga bago pati yung TESDA Accreditation nila pinepeke nila.To be sure, you can check with TESDA, may mga office naman yan in almost all localities.You can backread this forum and you will learn alot about most culinary schools.Double check SKD’s background and their instructors background.

  553. cy says:

    @chie

    Global academy alabang branch

  554. Alex008 says:

    FGA is tesda accredited na, try it. mura lng cya compared to others school but the quality of teaching kayang sumabay sa ibang school na napakamahal.

    ARVEk I’m sure you read na yung mga included na gagawin sa lEVEl 4 dun sa site na Global? Dun na po kami that was what my sis meant.

  575. Gail says:

    @RAVEK

    sorry naman. :) lahat ng nabanggit ko eh optional naman po

    INDEX CARD – any size. i dunno sa branch sa pasig if they are allowing index card with ringredients and procedures on it ha? kasi dito sa alabang pinagiindex card kami para di na namin dadalin recipe folder naman every LAB. Ask your chef instructor po ha? pero nung FINAL LAB namin, di na kami pinayagan mag index card, dapat memorize na procedures.. actually pag nasa kitchen ka na di mo na din magagamit eh. matatandaan mo na lahat kung ano yung dinemo. kaya lang kami may index kasi required. no index card absent 0_o

  576. Ravek says:

    @gail answer my question pls

  577. Gail says:

    @RAVEK

    INDEX CARD – dito mo po sulat yung recipe na gagawin nyo every lab po. I dunno sa ibang branch kung allowed.

    KNIVES – yeah included na nga sa fees yun pero may ibang knives pa na pwede mong bilin dun like fillet knife, boning etc. BASIC lang kasi yung knives na kasama sa fees. yung palaging gagamitin. you can also purchase knife bag and knife guards din.

  578. Gail says:

    @enzo
