Culinary Arts Schools in the Philippines

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.

Magsaysay Institute of Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MIHCA)
3/F Times Plaza,
United Nations Ave., Cor. Taft Ave.,
Manila
(02) 524-9996/(02) 526-1721

Global City Innovative College (GCIC)
3/F Bonifacio Technology Center,
31st st. corner 2nd Avenue Crescent Park West,
Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City
(02) 757-5588 to 91 local 814 to 815 or (02) 882-4242
text/SMS 0918-9247810

If you know of other culinary arts schools here in the Philippines, please do leave their info in the comments section. Thanks.

  • PieTon

    How I wish that it is already culinary school in the Philippines before, because I really love to cook and eat.

  • lasalista!

    i really love to cook.
    im planning to study culinary arts after i finish my engineering course.
    gusto kong pumasok sa CCA ang pinaka the best na culinary school sa bansa.

  • tarbis

    200k – 700k? is that monthly or annually? O_O;;;
    That’s highway robbery!!!
    I say go grab some culinary cookbooks, watch some cooking lessons in youtube and go shopping in your local wet market. It won’t even cost you that much to learn cooking.

  • OMG

    exactly tarbis.. or you can go to australia.. cheaper culinary arts study there.. my aunt is currently there.. no financial problem whatsoever.. and we’re of average society standing…

  • cris08

    gusto ko tlga sa culinary…. but too much expensive ang pag aral sa mga ganyang school para makakuha ng certification .. much better na mag work ka nlang as a kitchen staff pra sa first move mo as a chef kumikita kapa na dadagdagan pa ung knowledge mo through experience… kelangan sa isang cruise ship ay may experience din .. were not sure kung madali taung maka akyat agad sa isang cruisehip kung kulang pa ang experience sa trabho at mas importante un kesa isang papel…

    ako i go for experience muna first i work in fast food as food handler at sandwich maker naging casual fine dining pantry at napunta sa fine dining salad making at store keeper at napunta sa hotel as commis sa hot kitchen at napunta sa dubai as pastry and baker naman.. sana mas maging magnda na ang takbo n2…
    inshala….

  • chowder

    i agree cris08, experience is the best teacher, but then for you to have a better career as a professional chef, you also need a formal education. today, a lot of culinary schools are offering more affordable tuition fees, just like GLOBAL CULINARY AND HOSPITALITY ACADEMY, i believe they have the most reasonable rates and the of the best chef instructors in the country. sayang naman din kasi, filipinos really love cooking but then only the privileged can afford to enroll in a culinary school. buti nalang Global Academy opened up.

  • Rahrah!

    yup.. experience is the way to acquire intangible riches..^^
    GO PINOY!

  • mores bayong

    just want to ask if how much is the tuition? THANK YOU.

  • samson

    global is a scam you can learn more working in an ordinary restaurant than paying 110thousand in global ive been there i was disapointed with there curriculum it teaches you the basic only which you can learn working in any restaurant .graduate of global are not qualified to become chef de partie but ony line cook. you learn more in other restraurant than studying in global

  • samson

    iscahm international school of culinary arts and hotel management 310 thousand probably the best culinary school with true executive chef as instructor .
    cca center for culinary arts the first is not always the best too expensive around 680thousand for 2year culinary course
    cacs 320thousand
    aica 290thousnd
    i would go for iscahm

  • ryan

    gud pm samson global academy or ibang global?as far as i know ok din naman ang Global Academy 1 year grand diploma in professional culinary, baking and pastry arts lesss than 300k pa ang magastos mo.two birds in 1 stone kapa?

  • cariz

    ok lng bang after highschool makapasok n sa culinary school or required parin na may matapos ka muna?

  • kara

    I wish to enrol myself in a culinary school at my own expense. a)Global Culinary&Hospitality Academy, and b)MIHCA offer affordable tuition fee. Budget-wise and practicality-wise, the two are my top picks — I think their rates are reasonable. Between the two, which you think is better? Can anybody share opinion? Help pls. thanks!

  • sabrina

    i’d rather enroll at CCA.Mla. Dahil super ganda ng curriculum nla,compare to other culinary school mostly halfday lang ang class at 2-3 days lang ang pasok not like sa cca whole day at ang grouping nila 3 ang maximun at international cuisines pa. Hindi ako after sa murang tuitions kung hindi nman ma-acknowledge ang Certificate/Diploma ko pag apply ko sa abroad. Ksi, CCA lang ang affiliated sa America at Mayroong Servsafe Certification na kylangan ng mga gustong maging Chef someday. Kya para sa akin dito nko sa matatag.

  • phepe

    hi!tanong q lng have any of you ever heard of sti-delos santos na nag-ooffer ng culinary studies?

  • nice one

    i think ung tesda maganda rin un basic nga lng pero dun nmn mag sisimula ang lhat eh
    may kilala ako nasa cca waaaaaa naun gmawa n lng sya ng sariling negosyo nya ahahaha amf

  • allen

    i want to ask,, how much would it take 2 study culinary arts here in the philippines, particularly in cca….

  • isabella

    I enrolled at Global Culinary Academy and am very excited to start with my program (Grand Diploma in Culinary, Baking and Pastry Arts) this coming March.

    My mom and I scouted around the Metro hoping to find the best culinary school. We first we went to CCA.

    CCA ( 300+k/yr. so 700+k for their 2 yr. course) – I’ve always wanted to go study at CCA, thinking that it’s the best in the country. So we had our tour and sadly, my mom and I were not impressed at all. From the person who toured us pa lang, turn off na. I expected waaay better. So I didn’t end up there.

    Then…

    ISCAHM (300+k/yr. 14-month Diploma course) – I believe that this is by far the best! I was really decided to go here already but their slots really do fill up QUICKLY! like really. They only accept 3 sections of 28 per in-take. Sayang. :| ISCAHM’s really impressive. Faculty pa lang. The main instructors are 4 Austrian chefs. Wow talaga. Then meals are already provided for throughout the duration of you studying there (except for the first month, orientation pa lang) I highly recommend this school. :)

    AHA (260+k/yr. 6 month/Diploma course) – One of the best! I have an uncle who graduated from AHA. They had an outbound excursion at the Dusit Thani in Bangkok and cooked there! They were payed per hour pa. With AHA, there are more chances if you really want to go international. Sayang lang ulet, I was already a month late when I knew about AHA! Their next in take’s sa July pa and I can’t wait that long anymore. Haha. :))

    Global Culinary and Hospitality Academy (195k+/yr.) – After being so disheartened 3 times for not being able to get into the culinary schools I’ve mentioned earlier, I came across Chef Rob promoting Global Academy. I checked out their website and was so thrilled to find out about their newest course offering, the Grand Diploma in Culinary, Baking and Pastry Arts. They’re the ONLY culinary school in the country offering this course. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone! You get to study Culinary Arts then Baking and Pastry Arts as well! Plus they have pa the longest duration ng OJT. A plus to those who really want to experience what’s it like working in the real culinary world. They also have very limited slots. Their teacher – student ratio is 1:21, which is a really good thing. :)

    I hope that my “review” may help somehow. :)

  • rose salcedo

    –>is there any culinary school that i can afford? less expensive..more cheaper..i really, really want to go to a culinary school that’s why..

  • shami

    isabella is right! ISCAHM is very impressive and so with AHA and GLOBAL… i also thought at first CCA is the best but my oh my… etiquette is still what i look for primarily and it is so bad CCA doesn’t have it.. you know like they will really intimidate you, hahaha… make you feel like you don’t belong there…

    I am also wondering about summer culinary workshops. Does anyone know of any that would be affordable enough, or at least workshops that would only have a few sessions? I will be taking summer classes too so I cannot attend those that require long hour sessions. That and my parents wish for me to finish my degree (which will take four more years) before enrolling in anything that would take longer than a month :(

    I’m specifically looking for baking & pastry workshops, as well as culinary ones that would focus more on the basic techniques. Help would be greatly appreciated :)

  • nikko

    ok sana ang magsaysay kaso lang concentrared sila sa cruise ships..maganda ang global academy..magagaling ang instructors nila..angelica panganiban at christine reyes dun nag enroll..tuition fee 2oo,ooo for grand diploma,,12o,ooo for diploma in culinary arts..wala din yan sa school nasa tao yan..passion, hardwork, sacrifices and prayers are the main ingredients for success..

  • nikko

    sorry wrong info..hindi pala part ng global culinary and hospitality yung dlawang artista sa itaas..hehe..nasa GCIC pala..hindi maganda ang culinary sa gcic..ang magand ay ang GCHA

  • tracey

    kamusta yong teaching style ng global academy? may negative kasi ako na read sa school n puro basic lang tinuturo…mas okay pag student talaga don

  • kaiser

    im a student sa global academy. well going into my ojt now. grand diploma ako. i can say its been a good experience.. good teachers, good facilities, depending on the person madami din matututunan. (some people have a hard time digesting the skills and knowledge kasi eh. no offense..) but i would certainly recommend it to people wanting to go to an affordable yet worth it culinary school..

  • tracey

    thanks sa info, parang maganda dyan..hilig ko lang talaga Baking and Pastry..alam ko nag o-offer ng certificate ang Global kaya lang wala silang OJT nung tumawag ako kung bakit, sabi ng Global kasi ang may OJT ang Diploma courses lang…ganun daw yon…but sa MIHCA, MOST may OJT ang kanilang Certificate sa Baking and Pastry..kakalito.. :0( wala ako hilig sa Culinary kasi naman hindi ako kumakain ng pork, shrimp, crab, lobster, basta mga dagat n food except sa fish… :0) kaya hindi cguro ako effective maging chef dyan kaya baking hilig ko… ganda ng program ng CACS sa baking but medyo mahal sya….

  • kaiser

    meron naman diploma course sa global na for baking lang. honestly there were times na mas nagustuhan ko baking and pastry arts. madami lang idle time kaya nakakatamad din minsan. i think if you practice regularly naman kahit la ka na ojt ok lang.. if ur talking about certificate courses lang ah..

    —-hindi ako kumakain ng pork, shrimp, crab, lobster, basta mga dagat n food except sa fish… :0) — sayang naman!!! hehe ako allergic ako sa shrimp and crab pero kumakain parin ako.. masarap eh.:)

  • drew

    lan ko mag enrol ng Baking and pastry sa CACS, ask ko ang if may nakaka alam…pag nag apply ba ako sa mga hotel commis 3 ba? ma u-under ka ba sa pastry chef n station?? yong mga cold dessert saan ba yon?? thanks

    Enderun Colleges in McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio. It offers you a bachelor’s degree + a European degree or certificate to Le Roches International School in Hotel Management/ Alain Ducasse Formation + American degree in Kendall College (US Ivy League). You can apply for scholarship if you want to. They already granted me a Merit Scholarship worth Php400,000. :) They also have the ‘study now, pay later’. There are so many options. + a good quality education and a world-class facilities.

    yong curriculum ng CCA ang ganda perhaps the best, tapos yong ISCAHM at CACS din okay talaga… okay din sa AICA, AHA at Global….

  • http://saikaku.multiply.com Rhon James

    I’m currently enrolled at MIHCA. I must say WINNER ang kitchen facilities nila dun esp. dun sa UN Ave. (Main Branch)!

    Iba ang atmosphere ng MIHCA people… they’re all warm and polite. Hindi ko narandaman na maarte at arogante sila dun since nag-inquire ako dun. para kang wine-welcome sa isang hotel.

    basta try niyo visit sa MIHCA. saka mejo affordable siya compared sa ibang POPULAR Culinary Schools. =)

  • http://saikaku.multiply.com Rhon James

    One thing that sets MIHCA apart from other Culinary Schools is yung SANITATION nila dun. like last week whole week kami sa sanitation training. Talagang tinuturuan kami maging malinis dun palagi both sa katawan namin pati sa kitchen. talgang magiging disiplinado ka. Saka isa pang maganda sa MIHCA meron silang Cruise Ships. kaya kung maganda performance mo as a student pwede ka nila ma-deploy agad sa isa sa mga ships nila and work on board. But It really depends on how you’ll perform during the 4mos. training ang 500 hours of External Training. =)

  • tracey

    wow!! thanks sa share….kailan ang next enrollment ng MIHCA???! thanks……

  • rex

    i was wondering how much the tuition would be in MIHCA…
    also I’ve read good and bad about global culinary& hospitality academy…we’re a little under middle class but i wanted to know if GCHA would be ok you know w/ facilities and stuff…i would like to enroll a little after holy week…so if anyone could help me plzz
    tnx

    Oh yeah i’d like to find an affordable school
    so if you guys have any other culinary schools that is affordable yet has a great curriculum i would much appreciate it …tnx a bunch

  • tracey

    rex:

    try to visit global’s website or better yet visit ka s place nila…iv called MIHCA ang tuition nila 105…

    ang alam ko na mura n culinary school yong MOST INSTITUTE, yong culinary nila (6 months) 2,800 per month, tapos yong Baking (6 months) 2,500 per month….but you have to buy the ingredients, group so hati kayo sa gastos…ang estimate total n magastos mo according sa MOST mga 44,000 sa 6 months…however don’t expect the facilities na like ISCAHM or AHA, etc pero maganda sya at magaling din yong instructor nila. duon nagaral klasmyt ko sa college, she’s proud sa mga achievements ng school nila, i believe they’ve won na sa mga national competition…try mo kaya rin to…

    thanks, hope naka help ako…

  • tracey

    jijigz

    kung gusto mo nga mas shorter na period at certificate lang you go s MIHCA pero kung okay lang mahaba na time and diploma you go sa Global…kahit 4 months ang MIHCA maraming hours din yon dahil 5 times a week yong class, i believe they have longer jours pa compare sa Global…

    -more than 300 hours ang internship sa Enderun!
    coz they do have 2 internships.
    1st. during second yr, 300 hours. entry level
    2nd. senior yr, 400hours, supervisory/higher level
    it can be local or abroad for the 2nd internship

    I think Enderun is good. Partner sila with Alain Ducasse Formation
    search for his name sa net to know him more.
    Enderun College is one or maybe the ONLY
    school that teaches Alain Ducasse’s philosophy in english
    mostly its in french kasi! :)

    tapos you get to have a certificate pa from Les Roches
    one of the TOP 3 hotel management schools in the world! :)

    yun nga lang its expensive..
    300k per year
    then uniform pa lang 6,500php per set

    they also have short courser… go check their site na lang!!
    I’ve had a workshop from this school just last week
    its a pastry/baking workshop

    chef andreas was the one who taught us.. If I’m not mistaking
    his from France.. cant remember na eh!

  • maemae

    parang yung Global (as in GCHA; yung kay chef rob) ay deceiving in terms of duration. yes, it was stated in their website na 12 months pero yung duration per day ay medyo saglit lang. ang edge nga lang nun ay may diploma ka. at mukhang “mas mura” compared to other schools who offer diploma programs. kung tutuusin, di masyadong sulit yung budget kasi short duration nga di ba. pero if we’re not talking about financial aspects, ang quality ng pag-aaral sa isang culinary school ay hindi lang nakadepend sa school mismo, sa student din yun. I mean kung pano siya dumiskarte. kasi pag mag-aapply ka for a job, mas importante sa kanila ay yung experience mo.

  • tracey

    chesca

    iv heard s Enderun, sounds good, but tagal din ng 2 years, na check ko yong short course nila okay sya… but if mag short course s CCA n lang mas longer ang hours. Ang Enderun i think 60 hours ba, ang CCA 80 hours, yon nga lang mas mahal ang CCA….pero sulit

  • tracey

    maemae

    tama ka dyan…iv called Global to get some advice, sabi nila mas okay talaga diploma kasi if you apply ma tatakpan yng certificate mo sa mga diploma grad, may point din cla but tama yon nasa tao na rin yon if matyaga sya…

  • chard013

  • volare

    Nasa tao yun, lalo na kung hilig mo talaga, wala sa school yun, sa school basic lang naman ang ituturo nila, sabi nga ng isang famous chef, learn and study more, yung ibang european chef, they study or travel a lot to learn more about the food they like, I’m graduated in culinary sa global academy, i must admit, i learn a lot from them but basic lang, i read a lot of recipe book, watching any food show to learn more. And im planning to study again in culinary school in abroad, tingnan nyo yung ibang mga famous chef ng pinas, some of them graduated in abroad kasi iba ang training doon, ganon din sabi sakin ng isang pinoy chef na nagwork sa michelin star resto sa paris, save some money, study abroad. Feel free to message me kung may question kayo!

    salamat sa mga info…yong CCA nag o-offer ng diploma, yong Diploma nila sa Culinary ay 2 years for 750k, yong one year certificate lang yon around 408k….

  • volare

    sorry for late reply, yeah, graduate na ako, yeah, may ojt sila pero ikaw ang maghahanap, bibigyan ka lang nila ng mga list na pwede, plano ko to learn more about sa food na like ko, like italian, french and chinese. Want to travel and work abroad for more exposure kasi kung dito ka sa pinas, medyo mabagal kasi ang pag asasenso, napansin ko lang, karamihan ng work force in kitchen, hindi nag undergo in proper schooling, hindi naman sa nagmamaliit, minsan kasi kulang sila sa mga proper food handling na tinuturo sa culinary school not like sa abroad, medyo iba ang environment, saka labas sa safe zone mo. Then im planning din to study more pa at sa pastry, para mas flexible sa kitchen,

    miko, wala sa school yung future mo, sabi nga mga chef na nakakausap ko, nasa syo yun kung talaga gusto mo sa field ng culinary, sabi nga ni chef rob, in this field wala masyadong happening kasi most of time mo sa kusina, kahit holiday sa kusina ka pa rin, saka karamihan ng nakausap ko, dati daw maganda sa CCA nung hindi pa umaalis yung malulupit na chef instructor nila, pero its your choice kung anong school ang papasukan mo, good luck in this field… sabi nga ng isang famous chef, masarap kumain at masarap magluto…..

    note: go for some good culinary school, ask some graduate on that school or hingi kayo feedback sa mga nag graduate na, para pagpasok nyo hindi kayo kakapa-kapa

  • volare

    to all naguguluhan sa mga feedback about global, ah, first don’t expext na malupit ang matututonan nyo, ituturo nila yung basic lang, marami silang matuturo syo, yung iba sa experience mo na matututonan, ako, ginawa ko, habang nag-aaral ako sa global, nagse-self study din ako, read some recipe books, watch some cooking show or any food relative show to learn more, kasi hindi lahat ituturo nila syo, kahit ask mo yung ibang chef na nag undergo in proper schooling in this field, karamihan ng technique nila, sa work na nila natutonan, now, im undergo in free training sa fave. chinese resto ni henry sy… kasi i want to learn some in chinese cuisine….. kahit walang bayad okay lang, basta gusto ko lang matututo….

  • Ross

    Im a culinary enthusiast as well like everybody here, i went to Global Academy kanina and i must say that maganda naman ang facilities nila and their staffs are really friendly. I know madami ang naguguluhan dito regarding Global Academy or any other culinary school, Well let’s just say that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, For me ang opinion ko sa Global academy is okay naman sila, maganda ang facilities and on top of that very competitve ang rates. Nag enroll na ako sa kanila and my interview is on tuesday. tama naman ang sabi ng iba dito na its not really up to the school kung magiging successful ka, if you really have the passion and the desire to become a good chef, hardwork and experience are the key to success.

  • Ardy

    Hi, ask ko lang kung may alam kayo na ibang Culinary School aside from Global academy who offers Saturday schedule na diploma course din?

    Thanks :)

  • Ross

    By the way i just want to share this little information with you guys, Global academy Won ( is in CHAMPION sila) during the “Manila Meets Ming” contest that took place just very recently. Runner up ang CCA. So it’s not really up to the school ang success ng isang magaling na chef, sa PASSION talaga.

  • jessica

    hi ung global city innovative college mgnda b dun?konti lng difference ng tuition nla s global academy,nu ba mas ok?

  • tracey

    jessica

    okay lang ang favilities ng GCIC…but mas maganda for me yong Global Academy,asi naka attennd n ng klass yong cousin ko ng certificate course nila, i was there graduation nila, naka tour din ako. About sa tuition mas mura yong Global Academy, pero yong GCIC instead of 220,000, ngayon ang offer nila is 200,000 dahil sa promo nila para sa mga pioneer student. Yup, kunti lang difference s tuition between Global at GCIC.yon para pwedeng near sa place mO. Sa hours nila, kasi ang GCIC 5 hours, 4 times a week ang class while ang Global Academy ay 3 hours and 30 minutes, 4 times a week,however, sa OJT, ang Global Academy ay 600 hours compare sa 480 hours sa GCIC… sana naka tulong to… :0)

  • Jolo

    uhhmm uhhmm the last two competition from rockwell and worldtrade center..
    Global culinary ang nag champion against CCA “and other schoools lika magsaysay st. benild MOST AICA etc etc 2-0 ^L^

  • CK

    I’VE NEVER BEEN TO ISCAHM BUT I KNOW PEOPLE FROM THAT SCHOOL AND HAVE COMPARED THEM WITH PEOPLE FROM SOME OTHER SCHOOLS AND TO MYSELF AND HANDS DOWN FOR ME ISCAHM IS THE BEST BECAUSE WHEN YOU COME OUT OF THEIR SCHOOL YOU ARE GOING TO BE A HARDCORE,SMART,RELIABLE,AND GLOBALLY QUALIFIED CHEF!!! but again they cost much…Their rates are reasonable because of what they teach and their teaching goes beyond normal curriculum. They can literally flip switches and poof!! You’ll find yourself abroad!

    BUT ALL OF YOU are still confused on how studying culinary arts really works.. Diploma or Certificate doesn’t really matter… although it depends on what kind of certificate…By International standards (like Australia) they have the TAFE program which is like our TESDA here in the Philippines. In Australia and Switzerland, Culinary arts is called Commercial Cookery, in the Philippines’ TESDA its called Commercial Cooking but it follows the same standards. If you are able to look for schools that offer Commercial Cooking here in the Philippines then you are all good although be careful because not all schools teach the “whole” program..some of them have shortcuts..You can ask me if you found a school that offers this and I can tell you if its any good or not. PLUS taking commercial cooking will only cost you more or less 50k only…You don’t need a diploma anymore..There are levels of commercial cooking too..Highest is level of training is NCIV which is what the Diploma program of CACS and since its a diploma and has a ranking of NCIV it is going to cost you 300+K. CACS’ short course which is given a ranking if NCIII is around 68 thousand.. The most common which is NCII is what AHA,Global Academy and Academy for International Culinary Arts has.

    There are a lot of schools offering this Commercial cooking program but the BEST for me is Asian Institute of Culinary Arts in Makati Buendia.. The school has been around since 1998 and now is currently being run by graduates of ISCAHM who have already been abroad working and also studying. The school’s mother company is a shipping company meaning if you are really good they can endorse you to go abroad!! You can contact them at 843-0041/843-0042/843-0043-Office or Hotline (02)467-1419.

    Asian Institute of Culinary Arts has Commercial Cooking level NCII, runs for 6 months and will only cost you 75K AND OH YEAH THEY TEACH CLASSICAL FRENCH CUISINE!!!!NOT JUST BASIC CULINARY ARTS!!!

    I took their short course which runs for 2 months and cost me 14K ONLY and that course in itself as far as knowledge,theory plus hands on is concerned already got me places and will probably get me abroad but AGAIN ITS JUST A SHORT COURSE and not tesda regulated…ITS THE BEST SHORT COURSE I’VE BEEN INTO AND BEST SHORT COURSE YOU WILL PROBABLY GET ANYWHERE IN THE PHILIPPINES FOR THAT PRICE!!! If you need more help or suggestions email me at ck_ryderservices@yahoo.com… I’m all glad to help!!

  • CK

    Addendum…

    Asian Institute of Culinary Arts doesn’t have the best looking classroom or Kitchen. To explain it better the paint on their walls don’t look NEW but is CLEAN.. The stoves and the equipment in their Kitchen is SUPERB and their CURRICULUM IS SUPERB!!!!

    I am now taking Commercial Cooking from a school inside TESDA Taguig which is CATFABS (Center for Advanced Training in Food and Beverage Services) AND ITS FOR FREE BECAUSE I’M A SCHOLAR UNDER THE PRESIDENT’S PROGRAM!! OH YEAH !!! DON’T EVEN MIND ASKING ME HOW TO BE A SCHOLAR BECAUSE THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM IS LIMITED AND IS ALREADY CLOSED UNFORTUNATELY… CATFABS will soon open a branch somewhere in Makati and they will offer Commercial Cooking Level NCII for a reasonable rate..

  • jessica

    thank you tracey,pro db ung global basic lng?ska en s nbasa ko dun s comment nung ngaral s global academy bbgyan lng dw ng list kng san pde mag ojt s gcic sure n s diamond hotel dw

  • carla

    tracey san mo plan mgaral ng culinary?

  • volare

    its true paglabas mo ng culinary school, competitive ka, but think about it, hindi lang ikaw ang competitive, like here in philipines, karamihan ng work force in kitchen, doesn’t undergo in proper schooling, they just learn it from experience, they know something na hindi mo alam, may alam ka na hindi din nila alam, when you enter in this side of working industry, expect the worst and it will reward in the long run, if your passion is cooking, go for it, masarap magluto at kumain, and to me, ito ang job na kahit araw araw na pare-pareho, pero di nakakasawa, hehehehe, good luck sa culinary career nyo, sana someday matikman ko luto nyo, hehehehe

  • CK

    I second that Volare! Maganda lang naman mag aral ng culinary arts minsan kung gusto mo magtayo ng sarili mo biz.. Culinary arts can really get you places and will give you the basics kaso like in my case.. I’ve worked na before sa fine dining restaurant (kitchen of course) I learned things differently…tama naman ung ginagawa ko pero nung nag short course ako sabi ng nagturo mali ginagawa ko eh ung chef na nagturo sakin ng technique na ginawa ko eh graduate ng Culinary Institute of America…oh diba ang gulo…Pero the truth is iba2x ang techniques ng iba2xng restaurant.. Its good that you know the basics…pero pagdating mo sa resto trust me medyo may culture shock ka sigurado…

    Ako I already have experience in working both for a fine dining restaurant,hotel, and catering…ngaun lang ako kukuha ng certificate in commercial cooking para ma-refine lang ung skills ko pero getting a diploma is not bad but sometimes you have to think of the pros and cons..ESPECIALLY YUNG PERANG GAGASTUSIN MO PARA DUN!!

  • Sugarpluuum

    i agree. passion, experience, dedication (etc.) are what we need kung gusto nating maging mahusay na chef. those enough could pull us to higher grounds pero kung gusto niyo ng best education to fulfill your basic or even advanced knowledge, i’d go for CCA. it’s true it’s hell expensive pero think about what you’ll get, quality education. every peso is worth it. exceptional facilities, hands-on activities, and whole day classes (as in 6am to 6pm). to those na mga naintimidate (no offense) come on, we’re not children anymore. we don’t need accomodation, remember what you’re finding for is a school, not a hotel. and besides, CCA is not a hospitality school but a culinary school. moreover, it trains us to be independent and determined.

    that’s all.
    peace x)

  • Irish

    paki post naman po ung mga tuition fees ng mga culinary schools….thanks…

  • gail

    we are planning to take culinary arts din. like you guys, nalilito kami. originally plan namin sa AHA yung 2 1/2 years. its true may filipino subjects pa, gen psychology etc. maganda lang may 6mts internship sa international.

    please rate naman the best among the bests

    AHA
    CCA
    AICA
    GLOBAL ACADEMY
    CACS
    ISCHAM
    ENDERUN

    please include na rin pro’s and con’s nila.

  • CK

    I agree with sugarplum except for CCA…I would not recommend CCA…geeeeezz….half million or more?? AS I SAID ISCAHM IS INCOMPARABLE.. IF I HAVE THE MONEY I WOULD SPEND IT WISELY… I WOULD ENROLL IN THE SCHOOL THAT DOESN’T HIRE THEIR OWN STUDENTS TO TEACH..NO OFFENSE…THEY ARE CREDIBLE…but think about their experience compared to their faculty of ISCAHM….

    For MAY:

    AHA – I know of a graduate here that couldn’t even get a job locally….

    CCA – Over priced – over priced – over priced

    AICA – Over priced – over priced – over priced..good faculty..good education…

    GLOBAL ACADEMY – reasonable rates good teachers…

    CACS – A popular school not just because of their name but because of their graduates now being EXECUTIVE CHEFS in other countries

    ISCAHM – For me the best school….reasonable price….The most superb culinary faculty composed of 90% european instructors who have no less than 10 years experience internationally… here you are taught to be tough… And taught to have pride not with the school but what you can do and what you do…

    ENDERUN – probably over priced but since they have the Alain Ducasse Program which Alain Ducasse is a Michelin starred chef, I would probably say the price is worth it.

    If you want to know more from the students themselves then visit pinoyexchange.com and look for the Culinary Students/Schools thread… People who have been posting here would think twice about what they said….

  • Sugarpluuum

    CK,
    you made me laugh there (in a good way) yes CCA is way more expensive than the other schools. and sorry it’s the only CA school that i specified. indeed ISCAHM is one of the best. european chefs? i couldn’t ask for more. but you know, european or local (specifically the school’s former students) have the same abilities. they know how to cook (as well as everybody). now my point is, each school is unique. it’s just that i chose CCA, not because of it’s name, and most especially not because pride. i want something that would help me and i know this is the one. the same goes for you. agree? (or not? haha) we do have different opinions.

    ta-ta :D

  • tracey

    bakit kung galing west yong nagtuturo ang taas ng tingin natin sa kanila, well it is a pinoy mentality n kapag west better, no offense…

    My cousin is nasa singapore n, graduate ng AHA….depende yan sa student kung matiyaga ka mag-aral, mag trabaho at mag hanap ng work…ang daming kung kakilala na fundamentals lang nasa abroad…guys, hinay hinay naman kasi masyong generalize yong comment ng iba dito sa ibang school.

    bakit daming ayaw sa CCA, seriously if i have the time, il go there, kaya lang im working, whole day ang class nila so impossible maka pasok ako.i don’t want to give up my work din, sayang naman. It is a great school, also ISCAHM…

  • CK

    Sugarpluuum,

    Help you with what? Hahahaha Not even 1 member of Le Toques Blanches I think is from CCA if i’m not mistaken (If you know who or what they are)…Europeans can cook but trust me they know more techniques than us !! Do you even know the history of cuisine??? .. Consider yourself being taught in CCA and then being hired to teach?? what’s the point? You teach the same stuff you we’re taught which quite frankly saying you didn’t learn anything new and you are probably teaching the old stuff!! Geezzzz!!! Think about that!! Hope you change your mind!!

    I know of a CCA graduate who despises CCA….why?? because she has this experience with a professor who was teaching them asian cuisine and they we’re told to blow the neck of a duck (for peking duck) to make it large with a straw for christ’s sake!!! Help from CCA? When she graduated CCA she applied for a job here and the chef who interviewed her didn’t bother to even look at the part on her resume that says she’s from CCA…What did she do? she flew abroad and now is studying Academy At-sunrice… yeah…that’s how you spell it in case you complain…try to google that school up. Being in CCA didn’t help her…she want abroad with grief because CCA has done nothing for her….Think about that…

    I know CCA has a lot of good and successful graduates but dang!!! There’s not enough place for jumpy running around chef’s “kuno” on TV!!!!

    You don’t know much about ISCAHM and CCA…I’ve been to both schools….and trust me….I know my stuff and word.

    If you want help then ISCAHM is the way to go…ISCAHM has graduates that were directly hired in BURJ AL ARAB (google it up if you don’t know what that is) and a WHOLE BATCH from ISCAHM we’re hired,went to Macau to open the WYNN MACAU (that’s a whole batch!! 25 GRADUATES!!!)

    Ever wonder why our hotels here in the Philippines hire Europeans as Executive Chefs? even the locally breed hotels here hire Europeans as executive chefs!

    Chef Roland Laudico didn’t go to CCA…..Chef Rob Pengson didn’t go to CCA manila….ask them why? Think! think! think!

  • myra

    ask lang if how many years am i going to take kng ang gustu ko sa cacs na may diplomat pag graduate ko?is it 2 years?or more?:)tnx!

  • volare

    hey! guys, this is a thread about helping others who want to take culinary courses, hindi ito about whos the best school or what? nasa syo yung skills na para sa work, and the education is from the school, maganda nga school mo, pero wala ka naman passion, you just take culinary kasi akala mo bigla malaki sweldo mo, NO, magsisimula ka sa baba, tagabalat ng sibuyas, carrot, or potato, so, if your planning to take culinary, think it 100 times or more, kung ito ba talaga hilig mo, dami ako classmate nagtake ng culinary kasi wala lang, trip lang, kung iisipin mo, sayang time nila at money, sabagay rich naman sila, hehehehe

    CK i don’t know what your problem with CCA is. i know my thing and nothing can change that. indeed european chefs are considered the best (the hell i care). in your way of talking it makes me think of how edgy you are. and no i am not googling anything. CK, sentido kumon, believe it or not CCA does their job professionally with or without european chefs. you just don’t know it because you never studied there and all you have are the stories told by some former students of CCA who did not make it in life. i want to be a chef and yes i want to be accredited not because of the school but because of my ability. a true chef can do whatever or anything it takes just to make a dish god damn heavenly even blowing the neck of a duck with a candy straw.

    oh god ¬.¬

  • Anna

    Oh my…. I’m really disappointed dun sa bad comment ng CCA. Please help me ! I’m going to Manila next month to enroll a short course at CCA yung fast track Pro chef 6 months course. 185K for 6 months is not a joke, huhuhu… San ba talaga ako dapat mag study? CCA or ISCHAM ? I fall out from the chair, grrrr

  • happy

    ^i almost went to CCA.buti na lang hindi ko tinuloy. bago to diba? ung ProChef course nila?

    anyway, i agree with CK on his comments about the schools esp with CCA..hehe
    it’s waaaaay too overpriced kaya nga i didn’t pursue na mag-aral dun. tapos ung short courses nila, super bitin din when i looked at their course plans. and i know some people who went to CCA and mayayabang sila pero hindi naman talaga masarap mga luto at hindi mahuhusay sa techiniques (clue: one is a young celebrity chef). syempre i don’t mean LAHAT ng tga CCA ganito, kaya lang syempre this would reflect what they learned in school right?

    iba-iba pa rin tayo ng pipiliin in the end but if i were you i’d go to CACS na lang. i read your comments and i know everyone is looking for affordable yet quality culinary education. i must say CACS has everything for everyone. yung certificate course nila, Skills Program, costs 65K for 5 months of training under the best chefs in the country. mas mura compared sa certificate course ng iba and the course plan will really give you the basic skills you’ll need if you’d want to enter the food service industry…kung gusto mo naman ng diploma (which will give you TESDA national certificate IV–the highest in the country), meron din sila which would cost you around 300K. maganda rin ang facilities. walang hidden charges. you can visit the school anytime, itotour kayo pagpunta nyo dun.

    truth is, you don’t really need a diploma to become a chef. marami nang successful and award-winning chefs ngayon ang nagsimula bilang dishwashers and kitchen helpers, didn’t go to culinary school at all.yun nga lang taon talaga ang bibilangin. btw, i know a looooot are confused: hindi ibig sabihin nag-aral lang sa culinary school ay chef na agad. there’s more to becoming a chef than just getting yourself a diploma from an expensive culinary school.a chef knows how to lead a WHOLE kitchen, and not just prep and cook the ingredients.

    it’s good to know na there are a lot of cooking schools already sa pinas na malaking tulong talaga for this profession. kelangan lang piliin natin yung school na hindi lang affordable kundi magaling talaga. if you wanna learn, learn from the best na diba?

    pls guys, don’t waste good money just because matunog ang pangalan or imported ang instructors ng isang school. spend it on a really good school na maganda ang course plan/”curriculum”. basahin mabuti what the school’s particular program will be teaching you for the whole duration of the course…

    go to a culinary school na tuturuan ka ng skills and techniques. remember: read the course plan/outline.

  • 3rick

    ok po ba tlga sa global academy, kahit ung pro culinary arts lng nila?

  • CK

    Anna,

    For your budget and best interest dun ka na lang sa Global Academy ni Rob Pengson.. Diploma in Professional Culinary Arts will only cost you 120k for 8 months na xa….The chefs there are filipinos but ALL of them have foreign culinary background…Chef Rob himself is a graduate of CCA and that’s California Culinary Academy under the Le Cordon Bleu Program…Most of the instructors are graduates of Le Cordon Bleu. 1 chef actually (which is Chef Rob’s wife) is a graduate of the Ritz Escoffier in France! For the NOOBS here August Escoffier started the so called kitchen brigade system and gave if not all but significant evolution to the Culinary arts as we know it today!! Global actually won the recent Manila meets Ming culinary competition held here in rockwell makati. They were the champion and CCA manila was only third…huhuhuhuhuh…… Blimey!

  • CK

    Sugarplum,

    I did study there! Stayed there for a year and I didn’t finish it because I didn’t like it myself (aside from the money being wasted and unproductive)!!. The people I know whom you said weren’t successful was because CCA’s name/school/teachings didn’t take them to where they are right now!! A good friend of mine from CCA fortunately landed and graduated from At-sunrice in singapore and is now working for a Michelin starred restaurant not because of CCA!! but because of At-sunrice!! They do their job professionally I would probably agree but do they really teach how to behave in the Kitchen!! To tell you the truth there isn’t anything professional about the kitchen… In the kitchen its martial law! you get kicked..shouted at…cursed at if you make mistakes!! you are professional just to the point that you know the organizational structure of the kitchen and who you’re supposed to kiss ass when inside a kitchen..

    I beg you please read pinoy exchanges’ thread for culinary students and you’ll hear about graduates from CCA who fortunately made it in the industry but have comments on the other side of the spectrum you have given. Reconsider! Repent! Be saved! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  • Indiana Chef

    Hey Enzo, Irish, and the debate crew CK and shugaplum! (like your nick!) and everyone! Nice to have found this thread!

    First Gourmet Academy I hear is very good. It’s culinary program is run by a 1 european man army whom I hear has gone places. Tuition for 9 months if I’m not mistaken is 280k+ something.

    Most institute has been beating CCA’s ass down in the “Flavors competion” for 2-3 years now. That doesn’t mean they are good. Not to be biased with Sugarplum and CK but I would say ALL schools somehow have successful graduates and MOST’s faculty is composed of CCA graduates but I think and not sure if I heard it right but they are teaching there and beating down CCA with revenge.

    MOST.. they have hidden charges. Yeah you pay 2500+ only a monthly but you pay 1500 for every missed class!! You pay 1500 again if you fail their 1300 item exam!!! You actually buy your own ingredients!! Technically you learn to buy the ingredients but somehow because ingredients are expensive, students tend to substitute and you lose the authenticity of the recipe/dish.. Classes are once every week..probably convenient for some but if you want learn it hardcore then that is not necessarily a good idea… 65 thousand in total but in the end you only get a Certificate.. save up more and you already get a diploma from Global Academy….

    OJT can be anywhere. Global can recommend you to an establishment but again it can be anywhere.

    Sorry sugarplum but I have to agree with CK because I’m from CCA. (YAH CK I’M FROM CCA BUT PLEASE DON’T HATE THE PLAYER HATE THE RACKET HAHAHA!!!) and I also regret it. When I went to Michigan to work when I was starting out, my Chef’s (who were graduates of CIA and expecting much from me because of CCA being a brand name school) always were shouting and correcting me because much to my despair, stuff that was taught in school was different than what it was technically supposed to be done. I had to relearn from them.

    Being successful in this industry just doesn’t mean you get hired but you get hired by a well known establishment. They aren’t “well know” without a reason. Volare is right about the thing that the school doesn’t matter really because bottomline you have to start from the bottom (redundant much? hehe)

    I would probably gear up toward ISCAHM too! I’ve had practicumers from both schools and students from ISCAHM can work with minimal supervision and they seem to be confident. I asked one of my practicumers how they were taught and he quoted “In school if you are not passionate enough, they will give you reason to be. They are professional but don’t treat you well if you are just there to piss them of and waste money. They are professional because they teach you loads if not all they know, not to mention teach you everything they learned from other countries” Smart answer I guess.

    I really miss culinary school! hehe!! Will probably visit CCA and see how things are going there. til then pipz!!

  • Boy bato

    Pagtulungan ba ung may mahal sa CCA?? hehe!! ako din!! Sugarpluuum..try to backread from the start of this page.. Dami ayaw sa CCA…sabi mo professional eh meron dun sa taas eh tour pa lang umayaw na… Pansin ko lang kse yung ibang culinary schools dito lets say graduate ng AHA or AICA or CACS parang nakakapagturo sila sa ibang school pero ang CCA mostly sa small short courses lang sila or di kaya dun lang din sa CCA nakakapagturo…Doesn’t that mean something? hahahaha!!! Pahiya konti!! bukas bawi!!! Hoy CK!!!! Loko ka kinakawawa mo ah!!! haha!!! Nag tour kme sa Macau at nakita ko ung mga graduate ng ISCAHM ok sila dun!!! Meron taga CCA dun tga balat ng patatas at sibuyas!!wahahahaha!!!!

  • volare

    happy: its true na karamihan ng work force sa kitchen, didnt go to culinary school, but its takes too long to reach the top, if you want to skip, go to culinary school, kasi kpag lumabas ka na, medyo palaban ka na, not like them, they started in dishwasher, but it takes so many years to become a line cook or chef, not like a graduate of culinary school, medyo shorcut ng kunti, hehehehe, before yan din iniisip ko, hindi ko need pumasok sa culinary school, even na family ko, mahilig magluto, even na sanay ako magluto, but nung pumasok ako sa culinary schol, lalong tumindi ang passion ko sa pagluluto kasi dami ko pa pala hindi alam, as i said, may alam ka na hindi nila alam, and may alam sila na hindi mo alam, pero kaya mo rin alamin sa kanila yun, pero yung alam mo nasa syo na yun, parang secret weapon, hehehehehe, good luck sa culinary career nyo, galingan nyo, make your parents proud, ako i want to cook good food for my family and friends, and i love eating and cooking, hehehehehe

  • Anna

    I have an option to choose from. Sa AHA ako or sa MIHCA depende nalang kung saan ako matanggap. Nice din kasi comment sa MIHCA esp yong facilities nila at mga tao dun. Di gaya dun sa comment about CCA on how they treat you na parang may discrimination daw like ” you don’t belong here” ??? Hay naku, I’m a humble person pa naman para himatayin ako sa CCA, heheheh!

  • gail

    CACS is 325k all in no hidden charges for professinal course (Professional in Culinary and Pastry). Dapat dito na lang ako. Im about to pay may reservation (5k) kanina for 5pm to 11pm class, kaya lang di natuloy. I thought dalawa kami ng sis ko magaaral. hindi kakayanin ng parents ko kung dalawa kami. the plan is november na lang dapat sis ko pero increased na yung tuition fee daw sa CACS. eh ayoko naman maiingit sis ko kasi ill the first one muna magaaral so i didnt push through na and naawa ako sa parents ko. so GLOBAL ACADEMY na lang kami 195k not bad. kaya na ng parents ko pagsabayin kami. for me name lang ng school kasi binabayaran eh. and if passion mo talaga yung culinary, talagang mag eexcel ka. wala s aschool yun nasa tao na dinc

  • eloi

    anyone knows kung pwede installement payment sa CACS…

  • Sugarpluuum

    LOOOOOL. okay people x) kung ayaw niyo… de wag! ;P CK started this debate huhuhuh D: peace! pansin ko nga ang daming may ayaw sa CCA. lahat na ng pwedeng ibato, binato xD totoo naman eh. andaming requirements actually kakapamedical ko nga lang kanina (pasakit sa buhay? haha). ayos lang, we’ll carry on :P salamat din sa ibang advice kahit papano. kahit san man ako mag-aral kung pagsisikapan ko, siguro naman hindi ako magiging kawawa di ba? hindi pwedeng tango lang ng tango.

    see you in the kitchen CK x)

  • Anna

    to Eloy :
    I know lang sa CCA kasi dun sana ako :-) Im sure may installment yan monthly siguro mag issue ka ng PDC just like sa CCA ganun ang procedure sa monthly payment nila.

  • CK

    Sugarplum,

    Sorry for starting the debate…hehe…people just hate CCA for good reasons even me…Anyway if you are going to CCA I sincerely say goodluck and hoping for the best for you…Its true it all depends on the students so if you know something you were taught is wrong,don’t speak up. Just try to find and learn the right to do what you were taught wrong.. Like the paysanne cut…hahaha

    Speaking of which can I get the names of those who are bonafide commercial cooking or Culinary students here or even the professionals? I’m kinda thinking of creating a Culinary Student organization here in the Philippines.. I know it sounds weird but as we all know it will really benefit us..We can share ideas and stuff.. Hell we can even create a Student network because of it and join competitions as a group!!!

    Can I get an AMEN!!! Please post your replies and I really hope we can create this organization with a good name,good foundation, with good aspirations for not just our members but soon to be members.

  • CK

    I would suggest the name “La ligue d’étudiants culinaires” which is french for League of Culinary Students…

  • CK

    Sugarplumm

    Sorry for the debate…It just that CCA is being hated for several and valid reasons. They are all right in saying it somehow depends on the students so make the best of it ok! I sincerely say goodluck to you and hope to really see you in the kitchen!

    By the way peepz I would like know names of those who are bonafide students of commercial cooking or culinary arts. Was hoping to start a club/organization of culinary students. I know it may sound corny but I know you know that it has benefits. We can join competitions as one group and can probably reknowned wordwide too!!

    This message came in late but I already gave a name as a suggestion… Think of a good name too guys!! hope to meet you all if in case we will setup an E.B. and meet members…Hope you agree on this coz I know this will not only benefit us but will benefit the future culinarians here in the philippines..

  • Boy bato

  • volare

    Anna – I don’t want to brag about the Global Academy, but check our chef’s profile, then tell me if wala silang kwenta, here we didn’t say na walang kwenta ang isang culinary school or what? sometimes kasi some student or people encounter some bad experience, so they share some thoughts about the school, but it’s up to you, even the school is not well known, but you have the passion to reach the top, someday you will, there’s some famous chef here in philippines, who didn’t undergo in proper schooling but they reach what everyone want to reach…

  • Anna

    to BOY BATO;
    Pwede ba ikaw ang mag read kc c KC he was talking about La ligue d’étudiants culinaires” na di ko naman alam kung saan hagilapin, kaya I said na baka walang kwenta mga instructor dun. Im not talking about Global Academy kasi wala yan sa list ko. AHA lang at MIHCA kasi out na sa decision ko ang CCA. Anywasy, thanks guys sa pag share ng ideas nyo. I’ll be in Manila next next week to enroll at MIHCA and I’m so excited na, hehehe… Although nakakagod ang culinary but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. Goodluck sa may plan mag study ng Culinary Arts. God bless us all! PEACE

  • happy

    volare:
    true yan kapatid, kaya nga mag-aaral pa rin ako (kahit na sa totoo lang e wala akong problema sa paghuhugas ng plato dahil bata pa lang ako yan na ang expertise ko.haha LOL)! kaya nga maswerte ang mga nangangarap na maging chef ngayon dahil dumadami na culinary skul hindi gaya decades ago talagang buhay kusina na agad ang mga gustong maging chef. at iba pa rin talaga kapag nag-aral ka dahil hindi ka pa man nagtatrabaho e hands-on ka na agad sa mga pasikot-sikot ng profession na to, THOUGH super dami pa ang mas matutunan mo when you start working na talaga sa totoong kitchen, kasama ang mga taong di mo kilala, under the nakakasindak na eyes (hahaha) ng exec chef.

    ck:
    maganda ang idea mo. go!

    eloi:
    yes! yes! pwede installment. tawag ka: 7269326 for more info. dali na!

    anna:
    medyo malalim ang term na discrimination pero sakto nga yan sa na-experience ko nung personal akong mag-inquire dun (sa CCA po). umuulan pa naman nun so basa ang lola mo, ang “concierge” nila DEDMA lang sa akin when i asked (by signaling my siko AND NGUSO) kung pwede pabukas nung pinto kasi dami ko dala and i was dripping! sorry ha, pero pati ladyguard dun sa pinakaentrance, mataray. feeling! hehe
    –ok, so medyo personal ang angst kong ito pero NAMAN! eskwelahang hindi accomodating??? anu ba yun?

    anna:
    ung sabi ni ck na la ligue ay itatayo palang kaya di mo talaga mahahanap pa yun.

  • CK

    Ei pipz!!

    Sino na gusto sumali sa org ” La ligue d’Etudiants Culinaires “. Its going to be like a fraternity but no hazing ha!!! May initiation pero it has something to do with cooking…Nothing painful or not related with Culinary arts..

    Volare and Happy are you in? Who else? Guys please state which schools you have been to or involved with right now?

    I myself am from 3 schools. The Maya Kitchen Culinary Academy, Asian Institute of Culinary Arts, and CATFABS – Center for Advanced Training in Food and Beverage Services. I also took some courses from The Culinary Institute of America…CATFABS is where I’m trying to get my Commercial Cooking Level II Accreditation.. My ALMA MATER is Asian Institute for Culinary Arts. Although I’ve been cooking for quite sometime now…How bout you guys??

  • Anna

    to BOY BATO : Well, hindi kasi organization ang tanong ko lately. My question was kung saang school ang maganda kasi dalawa pagpipilian ko. Hindi yong suggestion na La Ligue D’ Estudiant Culinaires organization, ang gulo mo noh ! Nakakaloka ka… Sorry po tao lang nagkakamali, para kay sugarplum pala yong sagot nya, at di yong tanong ko.

    i hope ndi masyadong mahal ang iscahm kasi isa ito sa mga choice ko…

  • mia0322

    guyz… help me please!!! sino ba ang nakakaalam ng tuition sa iscahm…
    global; and MIHCA namimili kasi ako sa tatlong yan…

    may kamurahan sa global pero baka naman maraming hidden charges at ndi masyadong maganda ang school mismo…

    sa MIHCA ndi naman daw masyado kilala kaya baka mahirapan kumuha ng trabaho…

    kea parang first choice ko talaga ang iscahm… sana affordable and reasonable ang price kasi ndi naman kami mayaman… lol

Basta kung anong nasa puso mo at passion mo, go for it. Mas madali kasing matututo pag alam mong interested ka sa course at yon ang kinahihiligan mo. Goodluck sayo Hans !

    kung sa mihca mo binibalak mag-aral then i recommend you to AICA nalang…
    tutal choice mo rin naman un di dun ka na lang
    kasi compared with AICA nagiistart pa lang ang MIHCA mas marami rami
    na rin ang nakakaAlam nun at mas malaki ang chance for work non kesa sa MIHCA…

  • volare

    i guest there’s no school who teaches advanced courses, except if you’re studying in abroad, all culinary school here in philippines, teaches you basic, it all started in basic, theres no skip to advanced or professional,

    Anna – A.I.C.A is former run by chef rob.

  • nova

    haaayyy…kailan pa kaya ako maka-enrol ng culinary arts?
    if i have only a lot of money, then no reason for me not to enroll my ultimate “crush” course.. ^^,

  • chefrheu

    hi guys, if gsto nyo mag culianry go for it. I just want to tell you na need tlga speed,finesse, and passion sa culinary. I currently work as a jr sous chef here in los angeles. I graduated at california school of culinary arts pasadena and i must say ok naman sya. it just teaches you d foundation pero pagnwork ka sa resto u eventually learn more. pero un nga mas ok if magaaral ka mas mabubuild tlga ang character mo. i ahve work under the best chefs here and i Must say ok ang exp ko so far, kasi im very passionate on what i do. Ive work at 3 of the top 10 restaurants here in los angeles and lahat cla me michelin star. hopefully hwen i go to pinas nxt year to study at cca management course na makahanap ako work sa mga hotels jan. and eventually will open a resto in 3-5 yrs. kay guys if your really want culinary go for it if ur really passionate. kasi d2 when i first graduated the pay wasnt good. i needed a lot of exp before it eventually go up. i started as prepcook and eventually work my way up to linecook, i even work as a pastry cook for 1 yr. it was a good exp for me. I learn pastry and savory at the same time. im goin on vacation nxt month sa pnas and hopefulyl hwen i comeback i get to work for wolfgang puck again. ung flagship resto nia na Spago. I workted there before kaso just to volunteer hehe. kaya I hope mahire na fulltime. kaya us Pinoy we need to prove to the world na Kaya din natin mag succeed sa culinary world. so far French,Japanese,Chinse,American rule la eh. kay lets do it!

  • mia0322

    SHOCKS!!! BACK to scholling nanaman!!! eto nanaman ang mga pagod!!!
    hays gudlak nio naman ako sa skul… d’uh joke,,, hehehe but honestly i still feels like i am still 3rd year HS ndi ako makapaniwala na 4th year na ko!!!

    to ate anna!!! (ATE daw o piling close-pero sign lang ng pagalang para sa SENPAI hahaha tama ba un??)

    senxa po! hahaha kala ko kasi mga 20 below ka lang or something…
    i am hoping na lang na u find the right guy for you,,, malay mo nanjan lang siya sa tabi mo ngayon ayaw mo lang pansinin… enxa po… tao lang!!!

    to sugarpluum,

    yes! if allowed na sumali ang mga highskul student then why hesitate?!
    go na go ako jan!!! hahaha… i love cooking and i love things like that…

    Happy

    sana nga maging sucessful tayong lahat pati ikaw…
    tama yan relak relak muna jan at iba iba nanamang pressure ang meron sa pasukan nean pag nandun ka na!!! hahaha… tama sana magkabalitaan pa rin tau lagi para magkatulungan na din… hehehe

    Nova

    if you really love the thing then you will do anything to get and have it…
    in your case nasa iyo ang first move kung paano mo un mahahawakan at maabot…
    as a suggestion you can get HRIM for the first step and then imagor mo ung Culinary Arts… then after studying pwede ka magaral din ng culinary arts ng 1 year… sa GLODAL ata nag-oofer sila ng one year course ng culinary arts if i’m not mistaken… visit ka na lang sa site nila… ndi masyadong mahal ang offer nila dun…

    nasa saiyo na rin ang simula para maabot ang mga pangarap mo kaya wag ka matakot na harapin un kasi i’m sure na may mga susuporta at susuporta sayo…

    goodlak sau at sa ating lahat sa maging successfull tau lahat…!!! hahahaha

    MIKE

    try mo na langb ivisit ang GLObal academy then see it for yourself…
    basta ang masasabi ko lang nasasaiyo yan kung aangat ka sa isang bagay…
    sariling sipag lang tiyaga at determinasyon…
    pero i think maganda rin ang global because they have good faculty and reasonable price… gudluck sayo,,,,

    sa lahat…

    wish you all the best guys,,,
    love lots!!!
    tulog na ko may klase nanaman ako bukas… hahaha

    busy mode na uli…

  • mia0322

    to ate anna uli…

    nga pala nakalimutan ko sabihin na kung maaari nga lang dun na ko sa CCA kasi sabi ng iba na un ang pinakamagandang skul sa CA courses pero ayoko dun because of their tuition rate,,, masyadong mataas ndi namin kaya like what i’ve said before ndi kami mayaman and i’m not the only one na nagaaral sa min… ayolko na mahirapan ng husto ang parents ko tapos balak pa ng youngest sister ko na magmadicine… masyado nang mahal… nahihiya po ako sa parents ko,,, at ayoko maging masyadong pabigat…

    un lang po!

    lovelots and kipsafe!
    mwuah-mwuah!!! lolz

  • sdny

    hi,
    looking for culinary school in the phil.?
    global culinary and hospilaity acedemy is the best culinary school for me…
    i graduated from Grand Diploma last 2008, and just recently finished my practicum at Dusit Thani Hotel June 4, 2009. 600hrs. + 80 hrs of pre ojt or s.a. [student assistants.
    Global is one of the most cheapest culinary school today, the training is superb.
    i agree while studying at culinary, they teach you the basic, procedures.
    but remember in culinaria/kusinero in tagalog, “NEVER STOP LEARNING”.
    Fats is my bestfriend…hmmmmnnnpppp!!!

  • CK

    Hi guys!!! I’m back!!! Happy anong loveteam yan? Bsta ako I’m avail!! hehe..

    Guys sino pa gusto sumali sa La Ligue D’Etudiants Culinaires?

    Post your names and school and age..Identify yourself if you are male or female or whatever!!! Hi Sugarplum!!

  • CK

    btw,

    I already have members from my present school right now… post some plans or ideas of yours so we can accomodate and execute na…let’s get this thing goin!!!

  • Gail

    I am now enrolled at GLOBAL ACADEMY las pinas branch!. the receptionist is so mabait and very accomodating talaga! the school is small but very cozy and clean. and guess what? nakadiscount pa ko ng 10k!! kaya lang namoved yung class :( im so excited pa naman.. instead of june 22, namoved on july 13!!! waaaahhhhh!!! tagal pa!!

  • Gail

    yeah its true. GLOBAL ACADEMY will give you some sort of fine dine in reto and hotels list kung san ka pwede mag ojt. but kanya kanya yun pano mo bebenta skills mo. it was like applying for a job diba? Just like when we took our praticum during our college days, ikaw talaga mamimili ng company na aapplyan mo for your internship. and diskarte mo na yun! and they’ve told me syempre dapat maganda standing ng grades mo especially sa mga practical. Hindi naman school ang magkecarry sayo eh! ikaw mismo.. wala sa ganda ng school yan!

  • mia0322

    to kua CK!!!

    ask ko lang what age ba pwede sumali sa org mo???
    i’m a bit interested with it eh…
    kaya lang po 4th year highschool palang ako but i’m planning to get culinary arts next year… ewan nga lang kung sa global, iscahm o mag HRIM sa st.benilde,,,

    pede po ba ko sumali?

    GAIL

    thats good for you kuya!!! keep up the good work and hope you find your way to success and happiness to what road you chose…
    i’m happy for you… lol

    lovelots…
    kipsafe…
    godbless us all

  • Mimi

    To volare and sdny, diba graduate kayo ng global academy? may i ask kung anung klaseng mga questions ang usually itinatatnong ng school admin sa interview nila?

    Thanks :)

  • CK

    hey mia0322!

    Yah pede ka sumali as long as you would take a culinary course or something related like HRM…If you ask me personally? I’d rather take HRM from somewhere else like PWU (Philippine Women’s University) or UST… Those schools are somehow known for their good HRM program.

    I personally would go for HRM first and then take culinary arts because having a college degree is still essential if you want to build up for management position. You don’t want to stay long as a chef I presume or at least if you get to be executive chef you can still move further up the ranks of your organization.

    But again it all boils down to what you want to be in your life…Gail if you will take culinary arts straight up I’d say go for ISCAHM….and thats not a suggestion…I’m begging you!!! You won’t be disappointed…

    CULINARY ARTS STUDENTS!!! AGAIN I’M INVITING YOU TO BE PART OF THIS ORGANIZATION THAT IS IN THE WORKS.. ITS “LA LIGUE D’ETUDIANTS CULINAIRES…..

    sorry for putting gail’s name…message is all for Mia0322

    enewey,
    CK:
    can you give us details pano i-eexecute ang pagbubuo ng org na yan?kasi pwede din maginvite sa kanya-kanyang school, and then paano ba sya?di ko rin kasi alam baka may org na sa school na ganyan or sumthin’…ang labo ko noh?basta ang tanong lang naman ay PAANO?hahaha. i mean, after the list of names,etc…??? sorry, medyo hyper lang kasi ako ngayon dahil super excited for school and i think it would be really good for us kung magkakaroon nga if ever…anong school mo ba, CKplum?hihihi

    mia:
    nakakatuwa kasi habang maaga pa alam mo na gusto mo, kaya GO! GO! GO! wag sayangin opportunity and passion, kasi hindi ka rin magiging HAPPY if ever hindi mo ito pinursue…

    anna:
    where na you?

    sugarplum:
    ano kumusta na ang CCA?

    mike:
    it would be better if you’d personally check out the school. i’m sure mas accomodating naman sila dun compared sa CCA (refer to MY previous post sa taas) hehehe

  • happy

    hala!

    nakalimutan ko kayong balitaan!

    last week, pumunta na ako sa school to submit lahat ng kelangan at magpasukat…ay naku, wala talaga ako masabi sa CACS…super bait and super accommodating sila, nakakatouch. ewan ko, pero iba rin kasi pagpinaparamdam sayo ng school na welcome ka dun at willing sila na pagyamanin pa lalo ang iyong interest.

    then, syempre may tour (actually kahit hindi ka mag-aaral dun itotour ka nila) so i saw first-hand ano mga ganap dun…and i have to say it is a HAPPY place! hehehe.

  • CK

    Happy….

    If I may say more likely ako talaga ang founder and I would like you guys to be the co-founders… I have ideas but of course I need your inputs din…I’m from 3 schools… formerly a student of The Maya Kitchen Culinary Arts Center..now I’m with Asian Institute of Culinary Arts and C.A.T.F.A.B.S (Center for Advanced Training in Food and Beverage Services)…you?

    Hi po sa inyo! ;]

    4th yr kc po ako, at ngha2nap plng nmn ng mga pwedeng pasukan na culinary schools,
    well at first super ngandahan po ako sa CCA kya ng-inquire agad ako about sa tuition fees nila sa 2 yr course dun, i almost fell out of my seat nung nlaman kong 760K tpos may mga iba pang charges. Nung auntie ko nmn ang ng-inquire ksi di tlga ako mkapaniwala n gnun cya ktaas kya pina-check ko ulit sa knya, ayyyyy nkkkooo nung nlaman ko nging 780K bgla! So i decided n mghanap pa ng iba pang mga culinary school na mas mababa pa dun.
    So nung nhanap ko ung global academy super ntuwa ako ksi mgkasama n ung culinary and baking dun sa course at 195K lng ung tuition. I already have my heart set on Global, peo im still in doubt dhl sa mga nbasa kong comments na negative, i just want to know if those negative comments are true…help.:[

    THANKS!

    ahm to kuya CK

    can i also join your org? even if im stil a 4th yr student.?
    but im super sure that i'll be a culinary student nxt yr. ;]

    i am really interested with it so much…

    mimi…

    gudluck for your interview…

  • volare

    It defend on the school, i guess the longest is 2 yrs and the shortest is 4 to 6 months.

    If you sum up the years and money you spent in taking HRM, its like taking culinary, but in shorter period of time. If your passion is food and cooking, take culinary, but if you prepared in front of the house or in office, just take HRM.

  • Mimi

    Mia0322

    Thanks dear, Good luck to you also :)

  • mia0322

    to mei mei…

    meimei… ahm pwede kang sumali sa org ni kuya CK
    im mean i think pwede kasi kinonsider nia ako….

    4th year Highschool ako…
    planning to be culinarian too iun tinanggap naman nia ako and that made me happy!

    about naman sa global academy the school has a good credibility so far. good faculty and they also have reasonable price… kaya
    nothing to worry if you study there… i’ve already done several research regarding that school and i’ve learned na some of their student won some contests not just here but even from the other country…

    but the best thing na masasabi ko sayo is its not the school that you were in to…
    its more likely about yourself… kung paano ka mageexcel jan sa pinipili mong kurso… kung paano mo dadalhin ang sarili mo… kaya dont worry just do your best kasi sayo rin nakasalalay kung magsusucess ka sa course na yan…

    all you need is sipag,tiyaga,determinasyon and most importantly yong passion mo dun sa said course…

    lots of luck!!!
    sana maging magkakalase tayo next year…
    lovelots!
    muwah-muwah!!!

  • mia0322

    mei mei ulit…

    ahm as a suggestion lang po… its up to you if you want to follow or not…
    gusto ko lang ibahagi…

    ahm nung una i really want culinary arts so much pero sobrang mahal talaga ng best school for that course expecially sa gusto kong school na iscahm… (idont like CCA so much,,, over priced kasi) but then naisip ko na mas maganda na rin ung talagang may natapos ka na talagang you can use toi your life so i decided to take HRM next year sa isa sa mga school na ito,,, UST,ST.benilde and PWU known as womens… those are the school na sikatin terms or HRM courses…then i will magor culinary arts… diba? bongga! but its not finished yet kasi after the stud in that course tsaka ko na binabalak na mag-aral ng culinary arts talaga! i dont knw if sa global or ischam but that is the exact thing that i wa planning to do…

    la lang share ko lang///
    lovelots…

    classes tomorow got to sleep nah!

    muwah-muwah!

  • Mimi

    Mia0322

    I think that is a good idea, to take up HRM first then afterwards Culinary…In that sense you get the best of both worlds, and you can say to yourself that you are better equipped coz food industry is really one tough job…

    :)

  • mia0322

    mimi…

    yah thats the exact point that i was thinking in planning those things…
    but how i wish that food industry is not that tough at all…

    i wish that all of us find all the way to success in what we choose in ourlives…
    i wish we all find happinnes in cooking…

    i hope we dont loose the passion iwe have so easy…

    mimi, to that i’ll take it as a compliments,,, thank you

  • kassiopeia

    hi guys! sayang ngayon ko lang nakita tong thread na to pero still it made me feel happier and relieved na iscahm ang pinili kong school. im enrolling for their pastry arts course this july. na-try ko na yung short course nila before and ok talaga yung school. kaya naisip ko na when i finally decide to take a diploma course, iscahm is my choice.

    Mia0322 – Yep Volare is right, it depends on the school. Para di ka malito..ung Diploma is the paper itself you get from studying a degree perse culinary arts. Sa Le Cordon Bleu 4 ang culinary nila may different levels so somehow abot ka ng 4 years..

    To others ako naman!! Kamusta naman school? Kelan tayo meet para mapag usapan rules and whatevers?

  • kassiopeia

    Mia: Much better kung mag-HRM ka muna. Iba pa din ang may college degree. Just choose the school with a good HRM program. I’m a grad of UST HRM and ok naman dito. Mas um-ok pa nga ata ngayon ang HRM/Tourism sa UST.

    I think ang diploma course in most culinary schools max 2 years lang.

    to MIA 0322:

    @CK

    suggestions lang.

    * why dont you post your email here? para dun send lahat ng information ng mga gustong sumali like, forum screen name, real name, birthday, contact info age, occupation, address, school etc..

    * mag assign ka ng representatives each area like representative sa mandaluyong etc na sila ang magdedeliver ng message to each members per location o small assembly para di hassle sa mga sa mga malalayo pang location. Sa GRAND EB na lang magkikita pag super important na talaga yung meeting diba?

    * LOGO

    * THEME

    * VISIONS

    * PURPOSED

    * Own webby kahit free account lang

    * submit ng pictures ng mga members

    * botohan ng officials sa FIRST Grand EB

    * I.D.

    hehehehehe. those where only my suggestions. please feel free to add naman..

    THANKS MUCH!!

  • kassiopeia

    micro: this july na yung next batch sa iscahm. if you’re interested talaga, you better call them now and check if you can still apply though this week na yung enrollment. mabilis mapuno ang slots sa iscahm. after the july batch, jan na ata yung next. :)

    suggestion: maybe we can setup a yahoogroups account muna para mas madali mag-communicate. :)

    Gail,

    Logo,mission/vision,website, is already in the works as we speak..Iniisip ko pa lang ung org meron na logo and website na ginagawa..Eto yung mga purpose na iniisip ko. We already have two possible meeting place. One would be the rooftop on my new place and a restaurant called Gasthof. The resto is in makati avenue, its sort of like a deli resto. My place is in mandaluyong

    1.Build up of the league to other culinary students for recognition in terms of network.

    2. Possibility of helping future and present student members in terms of review and coursework.

    3. Enhancement of knowledge between the members in terms of new food and trends in the industry.

    4. Possible and realistic business ventures in the future such as a restaurant,catering company, or even a school

    5. Be an arm to the community/less fortunate as a possible training provider for future job opportunities

    6. Create interest in the public to pursue culinary arts.

    7. Join competitions not just for show but for creating interest to the org..

    Those are my examples for the organization’s purpose…how bout the others?

    mia0322,

    we’ll see about that issue…That hasn’t crossed my mind yet.

  • wix

    i just wanna ask kung magkano sa CCA. i hope you’ll answer me. thanks.

  • wix

    which is better, CCA or st. benilde?kasi st. benilde offers 3-year course. then CCA offers only 2-year course. kaya i’m confused if mas maganda sa benilde. please answer me. it’ll be highly appreciated. thank you.

  • volare

    wix – in my own opinion, CCA, they have the longest reputation when it comes to culinary.

    Dong, di ko masyadong matandaan ang ibang tanong I remember few questions like bakit mo gusto mag enroll ng Culinary Arts. Anong gagawin mo kung sakaling nasa bad mood kayo ng kasama mo. Then anong pinaka weakness mo, ang greatest strength mo. Saan ka dati nag work. Anong plano mo after mag schooling at anong makikita mo sa sarili mo after 5 years. Saan ba plano mag apply after mag schooling. Describe yourself, describe your mother. At kung ano ano pa, hehehe! With grading ang tanong nya pati English grammar.

  • stormy

    hi. just caught up with the thread. dumb question but do you have to be a good cook in order to start into culinary school?

  • volare

    stormy – no, but you must have the passion in cooking.

  • chefrheu

    hi stormy,

    i guess i would say that no you dont have to be a good cook to start in culinary school. a lot of people that go to culinary school sometimes they dont really have experience. school teaches you the basics for example making stocks,sauces.your knife skills and fabrication of meat fish and other stuff. if you really want to be successful and ba good cook i recommend reading cookbooks, practicing at home palagi to further ur knowledge and to practice ur knife skills. school is somewhat easy mnsan mahirap it really depends on how you pick thigns up. the hardest part is when you get out in the field. as in. at school for four – 6 hrs we would only cook about 4dishes to 6 dishes and it will take us that long. god in the real wold 4-6 hrs i think i cook about 50-100 plates minsan i dont really count it. but u need to bring out food so quick and perfect of course. pero dont wanna scare u for now. focus on ur school hehe. bsta when ur in school. practice knife skills,read book. pls very important learn how to be fast. speed kills. speed speed, also finesse. hope this helps

    thats not true…

    If I may suggest, sana yung name na lang nung itatayo nyong club, is something that sounds more like Pinoy. I mean, we’re all Filipinos here (it’s like some French kids uses “Asosasyon ng mga Kusinera at Kusinero” for their culinary club name, parang hindi tama di ba?), and using a more pinoy sounding name will help us uplift the image of new generation pinoy culinary enthusiasts.

  • rouvers

    i learned about intl culinary arts academy in cebu, sounds good coz you can have the internship to UK after 2 yrs. but i think you have to complete the 1st year requirements ofcourse including the intl city & guilds examination for diploma in culinary arts and certifaction award for food safety. City and Guild is said t o be the leading assessment and vocational awarding body in the United Kingdom that offers work-related qualifications across all areas of industry and commerce. They have the reputation for developing qualifications, which are internationally recognized by educators and employers alike as evidence that candidates have reached a specific standard in terms of work-related competence and associated knowledge and understanding.

    I just dont know if other culinary schools have this accreditation and affiliation. but unfortunately, if you wish for the internship for uk, it should be at ur own expense. roughly 150K php for about 1 yr of internship.( i jsut dont know their tuition fee yet) then after completion, the student is eligible to aplly for the US paid Internship. I think its cool as i see the future coming in hand. just my opinion.

  • carbomb

    ck, yes im from pex. im taking up diploma in culinary studies and ill be starting this july na.

  • volare

    Just choose a resto that you think it can help enhanced your skill or you can learn
    more from them, do some research, you can study later if you think you want to,

  • rouvers

    wla yata nag cocoment sa post ko, learned about icaac cebu. parang ok. kasi may pwde ka intern sa ibang bansa like london, then after mo ma complete yun, pwede ka pa apply for PAID US internship program. kaso sagot mo,around 150k rin siguro gastos.but the thing is parang trabaho na agad sa US yun diba, kumbaga affiliated an sila sa mga establishments. trabaho agad. saka within the course, meron pa silang written examination para sa certification from london. what do you think guys.

    ellain,

    As far as scholarship i’m not sure if there are any schools who have this…I know mine offered scholarship under the government but the line is already full…are you working? coz if you are I’m quite confident that you can probably finance this or if you can’t you can probably borrow money from your relatives…there are a lot of ways to get to where you want..all it takes is smart moves and dedication, passion..

    Take me for example..I’m working…and I’m paying for my own expenses.. I know that I’m currently not paying for my tuition here in my present school but I’m paying taxes and my taxes are high…plus Mondays thru Fridays 12am to 9am in a call center,then from 1pm-5pm I’m at my school in Bicutan…then on saturdays from 8am to 2pm I am on another culinary school…oh!! and btw I am trying to finish college too!! so off and on I’m at my college finishing some classes!! hehe

    Hi guys! My Baking & pastry class at MIHCA just ended yesterday. We took it for 2 weeks. By monday Breakfast na kami. To those who are interested in MIHCA visit their website or punta nlng kau mismo. Search niyo nlng online un contact details…

    visit niyo din facebook account ko para makita niyo pics namin inside the kitchen.

    basta for me MIHCA is a good school. sa 4 months certificate training 5 hours or more per day nasa loob kami ng kitchen at nagluluto kaya madami ako natututunan. 1 hour lang kami sa class room.

    thanks for the info. pero madami namang pagpipilian na hotels/resort/resto di ba? Kasi sabi nila they will just give us some sort of list daw kung san kami pwede mag OJT. May mga 5stars hotels ba?

  • kindheartie

    CK,
    are you sure about the Tesda certification of AHA? i called them this week and they told me na Level 4 daw sila.

    i am thinking of enrolling in a culinary school. my choices are AHA, ISCHAM and well basically from the good reviews i read about CACS and their good curriculum, it’s now an option also.

    my mom and i think na ok yung AHA based from the fact that it’s an american school. kahit na sabihin pang school doesn’t matter and bottom line, it’s the skill that you have learned and acquired counts, di ba may mga bias pa rin.. tulad na lang sa paghanap ng work.. may mga ads nga na naka specify na graduates of Ateneo, La Salle at UP lang ang entertain nila.. i believe same thing din sa ganyan. lalo na when you apply overseas. yung company would choose among those who came from reputable schools, and if posssible internationally known.

    kaya lang concern ko, enough na kaya yung 4 months training ng AHA? actually it’s a 6 month diploma but actually, classroom study/hands on is 4 months lang – 6 hours per day, 4x a week.. and OJT yung 2 months. bakit naman yung ISCHAM ang tagal na inabot ng 1 yr eh di naman sya tulad ng CACS na may pastry? dito sa part na ito ako naguluhan.

    i am 30 yrs old, with 2 kids. as of now entrepreneur ako. i am doing ok. however, itong pag culinary school is like a back up plan for me.. alam nyo na, alang assurance na yung businsess will always be good. tama kayang mag culinary school ako?
    i am really after good salary.. naisip ko kasi if i find work sa field ko, after 5 years magkano pa lang din maging salary ko.. unlike mag culinary school.. mababa man ang pay sa umpisa, after building 5 years of experience, parang mas ok.. and syempre mas numerous yung opportunity to work overseas pag ganitong field… wag na kayo mag suggest mag IT ako kasi nag try na ako sa UP last year. after a week i quit. it’s not the field for me.

    i welcome opinion ng kahit sino.. specially dun sa concern ko about ISCHAM, AHA at CACS. gusto ko mag AHA kasi mabilis at american school nga.. any comment? tama kaya itong choice ko?

  • kindheartie

    hahaha.. sorry sa nobela!

  • volare

    yeah, you can choose any resto/hotel/resort, but kulang ako sa oras to look and apply, so i end up in tagaytay highlands steak house,

    for 5 stars hotel, meron yata, you can ask them naman kung anong 5 stars hotel na tumatanggap ng ojt from GLOBAL.

    as of now i don’t have a day to day job, i’m a freelance chef/cook, cooking for friends and their friends…

    Carbomb and all, sorry sa mga di maka register…ung pinili ko na background theme di pinapakita ung code..ok na sya ngaun..register na lang kayo ulet…

  • CK

    Kindheartie,

    Sorry ngaun lang lumabas ung message mo na nobela…nag scan kse ng mahaba ung mukamo dahil mahaba din ung message mo….

    On my opinion kung ako papipiliin dun na lang ako sa ISCAHM tlga… I’ve heard of good things about AHA naman pero its still all up to you…wag ka lang maxado magpapadala sa marketing ng mga schools. You are right na name nga ng skul minsan is part of the deal.. Mabango ang name ng ISCAHM sa abroad because they produce good chefs… Global at the same time is sumisikat na kse super nagpapanalo sila ng mga competitions lately..

    If you are on a tight budget for the tuition I would go for global.. Ung iba kse schools more than what you need ang tinuturo nila.. Sa Global somehow ganun pero I’m sure that they teach what students need.. Ung fact din kse na ung mga Chef instructors nila sa global are some if not all are Internationally educated/trained chefs.. Contact hours sometimes doesn’t matter na kse your lectures are equally divided naman into the course kse…kaya mahaba at maikli kse some teach you more..some less…

    Kung gusto mo ng mahaba cge global ka or iscahm…kung maikli edi cge sa AHA ka…kung gusto lalo ng maikli dun ka sa school ko!! hehe!! 1 1/2 month lang!! haha… seriously whichever works for you at your situation…either school will teach you what you need…

    @ENZO

    hi! Im enrolled in GLOBAL, but ALABANG BRANCH ako. And class will start sa JULY 13 pa. tagal….

  • happy

    im back! (ok lng kahit wa kayo care…haha)

    enewey,
    so kumusta naman????? sorry busy ako lately. and am really enjoying school. as in.

    sugarplum, anna:
    musta na mga mare??? ang mga klase??? kwento!

    ck,everyone:
    congrats sa pagpupursige to get everyone together.

    kindheartie:
    thank you for considering CACS. im currently enrolled in their skills program (5months). all i can say is, i made the right choice. (i’m tearing up a lil here…hehe) kasi it’s really soooooo nice there… hands-on, all tools and ingredients provided, really nice people. i can’t spill everything here coz u really have to go find out for yourself. it’s like shopping: finding a really good bargain. quality. you should really visit. please. you’ll see. then you decide.
    it’s along P.guevarra (left turn from Winston, when you’re coming from ortigas) or call: 726-9326 (look for Ms. Dang, she’s really nice)

    i feel really happy being there. if you’re unavailable mon-fri, they’ve got classes on weekends. i wish i could convince you personally, so you could see the super happy face that i’ve got on whenever i talk about cacs/culinary school. hehe

    practically speaking, it is sooo worth it. ang culinary career naman talaga (kahit san ka pa nag-aral or anything) is really rewarding. you could go anywhere, sariling biz man yan or working as a chef abroad, even teaching! it’s a good choice for a career. but i do hope that this is what you love doing din talaga. u know, the kitchen is for the committed ones… could get really hot in there. :P

    anyway, think about it. first, getting into culinary. u really want it? then you decide the school. hope i helped u somehow. pls let us know what you’ve decided to do, here same thread.

  • kc

    question lang po..

    pasensya na nagbackread ako pero medyo naguguluhan pa rin kasi ako.. Meron po bang school na nagooffer ng parang night class? mga 5pm up? kase im teaching preschoolers during the weekdays from 8am-3pm sa congressional ave tapos during saturdays, i have my masteral classes.. btw, i live in fairview kaya sana hindi masyado malayo yung school.. :) kung pwede sana yung matatapos ko din within a year kasi baka alis na kame next year.. i really like cooking and baking kaya sana you can help me.. ^_^

  • Gail

    @ELOI

    am po ako. 8:30 to 12 noon? You?

  • kindheartie

    ck,

    thanks for your reply.

    alam mo i am seriously thinking talaga na mag culinary pero i read sa isang thread – femalenetwork na yung mga commis dahil sobra ang load ng mga dishwashers, they tend to wash the pots and pans themselves.. so sabi nga nila inevitable ang pasma.

    pano kaya yun? i am one of those few na kahit bata pa eh may arthritis na! advisable pa ba mag culinary?

    thnaks.

  • volare

    kindheartie – i guess common lang yata yun sa kitchen, dapat flexible ka, thats why some foreign chef like filipino coz hindi sila mapili sa trabaho, it will happen naman kung talagang kailangan na in that area, si chef ian padilla nga(you can search his name in google and find out who he was) naghugas ng cr eh…

  • iceman

    I had fun reading the post above. CK seems to be very active posting comments on everyone. CK seems to be an ISCAHM and Global Academy fan. hehehe Anyway, I would just like to say that all culinary schools are the best in their own way. It just a matter of you guys looking for a school that would give you what you really need.

    Schools create their courses based on their target market. And CK please don’t compare each school’s training delivery based on your so-called “curriculum”. I doubt you even have a copy of their curriculum.

    Culinary Schools are also business entities trying to make money. And businessmen would rather create or deliver something different that compete. It’s easier to get revenues that way.

    I was browsing this site because of market research. I was hoping to see a a sound advice to help people confused to which school to go to. A lot of you guys gave their own piece of comment regarding schools without even asking the one needing help “what do you want to learn in culinary arts” or “what is your goal for studying”

    So for those guys still confused to which school to go to, ask your self questions such as your goal and the things you want to learn. Then go to schools and inquire. If the school have also answered the questions you asked your self, that may be the best school for you. Besides, what’s best for me may not be the best for you.

    Thanks.

  • volare

    happy, ck and volare:

    thanks for your input.

    naku, pano kaya yun.. i don’t have any passion sa cooking?! hmm.. actually, hindi kasi ako nagluluto.. i don’t like the smell of raw meat/fish kaya di ako nagluluto.

    what motivates me lang kasi to go into culinary is the fact na after you get your certificate/diploma, and you really did well sa school, it opens a lot of doors for you to work overseas.. and of course a chance to earn welland give your kids a good future. enough motivation kaya yun for me to succeed sa culinary?!

  • kc

    CK,

    thanks for the reply and school suggestion.. i really appreciate it.. :) i’ve checked both of their sites.. unfortunately, opening soon pa yung QC branch ng Global.. so i was thinking, which school do you think is better? i really value your opinion kase i think your one of the knowledgeable person here pagdating sa mga school and curriculums offered nila.. and anong better? professional or recreational course? i want to enroll talaga because of my passion and fascination sa pagluluto.. dko naman iniisip na maging work ko siya.. and oo nga pala, do you have any idea how much sa CACS? do they teach french? hehe pasensya na marami ako tanong at sinasabi.. excited lang ako..

    im concerned talaga sa schedule ko.. sana magawa ko siya.. ^_^ thank you thank you..

    hi to all.. im 4th yr student pa lang.. sabi kasi ng mate ko na may 1yr course daw ng culinary arts.. pero pede ba ko magenroll sa iscahm khit high school graduate lang.. ok lang ba khit di mg 1-4 college.. wla pa ksi ko idea.. pero gusto ko tlaga maging chef.. gusto ko lang po malaman if tumatanggap ba ung mga school na 1yrs course for culinary arts na mag gagraduate pa lang ng high school..

  • Gail

  • Rob

    Whats this La Ligue na group? that s.u.c.k.s ewww…forming a group with culinary students? why do you even need that? geez…you need companionship or something?

  • CK

    kc,

    I wouldn’t say I have the first hand knowledge about these schools but I did research about them and I really do a nitty kind of research….kaya I’m confident on what I have to say about these schools.

    CACS has a Certificate course which will cost you 68k and that’s what I’ve been planning to take sana…their certificate course kse is TESDA ranked Level 3 and their diploma course is Level 4compared to other schools na diploma na nga pero Level 2 lang ang certification pero don’t get to hung-up on those certificates…If you look further, Global’s diploma in professional culinary arts is just certificate level 2 ranking from tesda pero ang tuition is 120k lang for the diploma course itself.

    Global has come to a surprise kse sobrang affordable na ang tuition nila and makikita mo naman sa mga products nila (students I mean) na may alam tlga and successful naman.. I know it would be bias to say na maganda ang school nila dahil nananalo sila sa mga competitions pero come to think of it, kung nananalo sila dahil sa help ng mga instructors nila edi ibig sabihin naman nun eh magaling magturo ung mga instructors nila diba..

    I myself am already in the crossroads of where to study next.. I am currently taking a certificate course from tesda itself pero I feel kulang pa sya….Level 2 na certificate ko dun pero parang kulang pa din…parang gusto ko na may diploma talaga…Di naman na ako maiiwan in terms of knowledge and skills sa kusina pero I want more paperwise for my resume…

    My other school which is Asian Institute of Culinary Arts in buendia has a short certificate course (internationally accredited short course) in different cuisines…They do have french…their 6 month course actually tackles classical french cuisine…

    KC please join as at liga dat my-forums dat net to get more info from La Ligue members

  • CK

    kindheartie,

    Really? tlagang may arthritis ka? as in? kung ganun na nga mahirap nga yan…I would personally say na na if that’s your dream and passion then follow it pero kung magiging health hazard sayo and bka mainis sayo ung mga kasama mo sa kitchen dahil lagi kang pagod eh wag na lang…mahirap sa kitchen…walang upuan!!

    My advice is if there is a possible way to work around that complication of yours like medicine or accu-puncture or whatever eh DO IT.. Passion is something that you need to feed somehow…if you don’t feed it, it will eat you!!

  • volare

    kc – 328k for 1 year study

    some culinary school have a flexible time sched for you… you can do some research or just ask them about their sched.

    no, they don’t teach french language, but most of the techniques they use is in french.

  • akash

    hello meron bang mag eenrol november batch sa AHAPHIL dito? salamat

  • I hate happy

    I am currently enrolled at MOST. Okay naman siya, 6 months instalment, siguro mga nasa 50k total including ingredients. Magagaling mga chefs (puro taga CCA) tsaka ang dami naming catering exposure. agod pero worth it. Basic facilities, pero talagang kayod ka kase tinuturo na mag work sa kusina na walang mga hi tech na gamit. May dine out din kami tsaka ang pinakamasaya, ang galing ko na mamalengke!

  • I hate happy

    * pagod pero worth it

    Note: no offense to any reader named happy here.. its a state of mind

    anyway, go to you tube abd type MOST institute, daming posts nung class namin

  • Eromarl

    Hi i hate happy! Taga MOST din ako, graduate na.. Ayos ang school naten, ngayon kase may work na ko dito sa angeles, chef de partie na ko.. hehe. galing ng mga chef instructor kase dyan, lupet nila.. Goodluck senyo..

  • kc

    CK,

    thanks for the info.. really helpful..

    i would like to try sana sa AICS, kaso malayo kung buendia pa siya.. hanggang mandaluyong lang kaya ko.. ^_^

    im still confused which school to go to.. parang both CACS and Global is good.. siguro i should go to the schools and check it out for myself and siguro magiging basis ko narin kung ano mas maaacommodate ng schedule ko..

    i joined La Ligue na pala.. :)

    Volare,

    thanks din sa info.. i remember before, parang may nakita akong school na part ng curriculum nila is french lessons.. i dont remember exactly anong school kase early this year ko pa nakita yun.. i want to learn french din kase kaya im asking.. anyway, im going to check out the schools, CACS and Global, when i have the time..

    ———-

    bakit may nangaaway.. e ano naman kung magform ng group.. ang hirap at nakakatamad kaya magbackread.. ang dami daming iba ibang info.. at least kung may group and forum, its easier to ask questions..

  • Pangit most

    Ung mga taga most wag nga kayo dito!!! di kasama school nyo sa pinag uusapan dito…y.u.c.k. school nyo!! Taga CCA nga instructors niu b.u.l.o.k. naman school nyo!! Panginoon ko mga graduate ng most meron nag oojt sa Grilla sa pioneer…

  • I hate happy

    to pangit most:

    oh well, so what kung di maganda ang facilities katulad ng iba na mahal, ang importante, at the rate na binabayaran namin, marami kaming natutunan, nag eenjiy kami and ang dami ng napadala kaya sa abroad like malaysia and thailand, and so what kung sa Grilla lang ang OJT namin? its a decent job, youd be surprised were all over, almost all restos and hotel may taga most na nag OJT.. parang surot na malapit ng kumagat sa yo! currently, i asked our CCA chefs who are so good and mababait, we are about 800 enrolled daw from batangas, cebu, davao, angeles and manila.. i think that wil speak for itself. tsaka bakit, moderator ka ba nito? bakit bawal e kung talagang educated ka and may modo, you will comment correctly at mag criticize ng tama lang. thats it.

  • Pangit most

    I hate happy,

    anong natututunan nyo? magbayad ng 1,500 pag bumagsak sa exam… magbayad ng 1000 pag di napasukan ung class? magmarket kuno ng ingredients na di nman masusunod kse puro substitution ng ingredients ang ginagawa… FOR YOUR INFO GRADUATE AKO NG CCA NA KINUKUHA NG MOST PARA MAGTURO SA SCHOOL NYO! AT SHEMPRE UMAYAW AKO KSE P.A.N.G.I.T. SISTEMA NYO!!! KAHIT SAAN NGA MERON TAGA MOST PURO COMMIS LANG!!! NI ISA ATA SA MGA GRADUATE NYO SINCE NAGSIMULA SCHOOL NYO DI PA NAGIGING EXECUTIVE CHEF!! SUPER Y.U.C.K.!!!!

  • exitwounds

    I have to agree with Pangit most just because graduates of most have been a headache in my restaurant here in makati…pinalayas ko nga sa resto namin kse nagkakalat sila eh. magulo pa

  • CK

    To all concerned,

    Bkit may away ata dito? anong meron…tagal ko nawala meron na away..meron na naman ba taga CCA dito? hehe… TO START MY OPINION I WOULD LIKE TO SAY MUNA NA I DON’T DISCRIMINATE OK!! I hate happy, marami dito ayaw sa CCA kaya don’t expect people to like you either dito… A lot of people have had issues with CCA and your school.. Your franchise branches are probably doing good but not your main branch in cubao… Oh and by the way, mali ata ung sinasabi mo na trained kayo magwork sa hindi hi-tech na kitchen…kse kung ganon edi kamote kayo pag napunta kayo sa tunay na kitchen kse lahat ng gamit hi-tech…napaka MALING TRAININING nyan kung ganon…

  • taga MOST din

    To pangit MoST

    Bakit parang bitter ka sa MOST? siguro nag apply ka sa Grilla tapos di ka natanggap, Yung taga Most siguro kinuha nila? E di ba CCA may-ari ng Grilla, bakit parang minamata mo Grilla? Sigurado ka kinukuha ka ng Most para magturo, kasi ang dami mga taga CCA na gusto magturo sa Most pero di tumatagal or di kinukuha kasi marami rin tanga na graduate ng CCA,especially lately. Yung magagaling lang ang tumatagal sa Most. Siguro ikaw yung isa dun sa mga nag apply sa Most pero di tinanggap?Hihihihi!

    TO PANGIT most and I hate HAPPY:

    to both of you, wag na kayong mag-away if both of your school is good, sa experience nyo palang dun is enuf, you dnt need to convince others na kahit anong gawin nyo di maniniwala, enuf na un..you are representing your school, bitbit ang pangalan, sa ginagawa nyo nakakatulong ba kayo.??! dapat nagpapakita kayo ng magandang ugali..tama na yan, pwede ba?? nakakainis na kasing magbasa sa forum na ‘to kung mga ganyan lang mababasa ko..

    actually, nrolled ako sa MOST ngaun, start palang kmi this july, ng-nrol ako just to make myself busy with other stuff..nag-nrol ako dun kasi malapit sa work ko at cheaper kesa sa ibang school, nakita ko yung school pero never ako nagisip o nagbigay ng negative words bout it..just want njoy and learn more..i’v been to three different schools na, pang4 ko na ang MOST and pang3rd coarse ko na ang culinary, sa lahat ng un ng-njoy ako kasi positive lagi outlook ko..never ako ngsalita ng bad words sa school ko at lalong lalo na sa ibang school dahil ndi ko naman n-xpereince un kung ano man ang meron sa iba..

    sana matigil na away nyo..okie dokie?? GODBLESS YOU BOTH..

  • ryan

    when start ng iscahm july classes?

  • I

    To taga most din,

    hahahaha korek ka jan! etong si Pangit most parang kulang sa pansin. pare pangit most punta ka sa school namin bigyan ka namin ng hug mukhang bitter ka e. Alam ko kasi lahat ng instructors namin magagaling e siguro nakita nila tanga ka kaya hindi ka kinuha hehe

    anyways, MOST has a very diverse faculty. we have 2 who are graduates of ISCAHM, 6 from CCA, and 2 foreign chefs :) At magagaling sila magturo. At infairness naman dun sa fees na babayaran daw pag na late kami sa class, most of the time naman hindi kami ngbabayad kung hindi ngttourne lang ng 100 times :/ Sabi kasi nila para masanay kami na magkaroon ng disiplina pag dating sa oras. Dahil pagdating daw sa kusina di raw pwede tamad at dapat iinstill namin sa sarili namin professionalism. And nakikita naman namin yung logic behind that :)

    Dito sa amin sa MOST di lang kami tinuturan magluto kung hindi ng mga tamang traits na kailangan para maging succesful chefs

    peace and love :)

Kaya pare-parehas lang kayo!! graduate ako sa abroad pero di ako ganyan umasta!! Pikon kayo kse totoo mga H1nayu-pak!!

  • taga MOST din

    Hahaha! Boy bato , ano tawag mo dyan sa asta mo, matino? Gusto mo lang ata ipa-alam na sa abroad ka graduate eh! Isa lang gusto mo sabihin , MAYAMAN Ka! walang kinalaman ang pagluluto sa yaman.
    Sorry, pero wala pa naman akong nakita na negative words from any Most supporter about any other school, unless provoked.
    I just want to straighten out things re MOST:
    1.The Make-up class fees is applied for unexcused absences. for the students who are absent and cannot present any form of excuse. this is to discourage tardiness and cutting classes. The admin even calls our parents or guardians if we are not in school on our class day.
    2. LOW-TECH and HI-TECH -what we meant when we said our equipment was LOW-TECH. is that we use cheap equipment, instead of an industrial type stove made of Stainless Steel , we use a 2-burner La Germania gas stove, or a single medium-pressure “flying saucer” gas stove. we also use Residential grade La Germania Gas Ovens, But we are not alien to convection ovens , ’cause we have two small convection ovens.So, I dont think nangangamote mga taga Most pag lagay mo sa hi-tech na kitchen,pareho lang naman pinipihit ang mga kalan natin para sindihan.
    3. Facilities -wise, I admit pangit facilities namin.that is because of our low tuition fee. Give us the tuition fee that CCA charges,baka in one year napaka hi-tech na ng MOST.
    BOTTOMLINE is whatever school you come from, it won’t matter in the industry, You still have to prove yourself. Let’s admit that in all schools, we have successful graduates, and meron din tyo sablay na graduates. What we are trying to emphasize is that 80% of our graduates are employed and are happy in their jobs. Natural lang na sa baba ka mag umpisa, and work your way up. For a 5 year school, we have a good share of graduates in the middle and higher levels of the brigade.

    ang pointless ng pagbabadmouth sa mga schools. So immature.

  • taga MOST din

    I agree with Chef Logro, btw, are you the famous Chef BOY LOGRO? who I believe rose from the ranks to become the EC of Diamond Hotel. He started out with no formal education at all and became the Executive Chef of Diamond Hotel. The only culinary education he got was those sponsored by the hotel, Now he owns his own culinary school. Yan ang IDOL!Wala sa school yan,nasa tao yan!

  • taga MOST din

    BTW, ang nagkwento sa amin nyan, instructors namin sa MOST, they don’t badmouth other schools. Pag magtanong ka about other schools, sabihin lang nila “if you can afford it, why not?!”.

    had a real good time reading the posts :) very entertaining ang funny :) im an undergraduate of a 5- year course at UST and am planning to take culinary in the meantime . my mom cant afford culinary schools coz it’s so expensive. pang med ko na rin yon. anyway we came across STI here in TAguig Global City and their Center for Arts offers a culinary program for only 49++thou PhP. it’ll be starting this Aug ’09 but they’re still finalizing the program curriculum. sana ok dun :)

Ang ganda sa MIHCA hindi tipid sa ingredients grabe, kami na rin ang nanghihinayang kasi sayang talaga tinatapon nalang sa basura eh. Tapos dun may butchery ha tapos di tipid sa karne. Alam mo, ung first choice ko pa naman mag enrol sa CCA kaya lang na discourage ako dun then sa AHA naman di rin ako nag enrol dun kasi tagal pa tentative ng August ang klase yun na nga di na sigurado.

    Hi to all, I need some advice…

    I live in Japan right now with my fam. I’ve been planning na mag-aral ng culinary, but since I’m not yet fluent in speaking Japanese, parang ayoko mag-aral ng culinary d2…ska syempre Japanese ung teaching nila, I’m sure mahihirapan lng ako. May US visa ako, so anytime pwd ako mkapag-aral don, balak ko sna sa French Culinary Institute or FCI in NYC. Actually 6 months lng kpag DAYTIME SCHEDULE(Mon-Fri)…it costs $ 40,500 or Php 2,025,000…tpos 9 months nman kpag EVENING SCHEDULE(M,W & F) kukunin mo $ 34,850 or Php1,742,500. Pro very impressive nman tlga…as in!!! Pro compared dyan sa Pinas, super expensive tlga kpag FCI ako…so what do you think guys??? OK ba jan mag-aral ng Culinary??? I mean, ung curriculums etc. Kasi ung point ko rin, ayko nman din ung para lng makatipid, don na ko mag-aaral sa mura. Advice nman kng sa tingin nyo mag-aaksaya lng ako ng money sa FCI kng pwd nman jan nlng sa Pinas. Thanks!

    Hi dai, Im truly happy sa choice ko at least di nasayang ang tuition ko. Sobra sobra ang ingredients sa MIHCA at nabubulok sa dami pati karne. Di sila kuripot as in, marami kang matututunan. Goodluck sayo dai ha, ingat.

    Culinary arts is not technically college,other school are teaching cooking for kids, othere kahit di nakatuntong sa school or kahit pipi tinututruan nila mag luto.

  • chefoy

    hello,

    maganda ba sa MOST INSTITUTE, ANYBODY FROM MOST ? IN THIS FORUM? BALITA KO WLA NA SI MR. OBISPO DOON, MAY IBANG SCHOOL naman, SKD ACADEMY

  • sisig

    hi chefoy,
    yes,mr. obispo is not anymore connected with MOST. We have a new president, Ms. Borja, who is also from the industry.Comparison?! Di ko inabot si Mr. Obispo, i just heard about him, so ayoko mag comment.Yeah,I heard about SKD, may isang instructor ata sila, graduate daw ng Most.Hindi, hindi may isang instructor from MOST. kundi isa lang talaga instructor nila. totoo ba yon SKD?
    So far, satisfied ako sa MOST,and they are slowly improving their facilities. And ang dami ng students ngayon, kailangan na yata mag expand sa main campus.

  • CK

    ARANGKADA,

    COMMON SENSE PLEASE…ARANGKADA KA NG ARANGKADA EH DI MO ALAM SINASABI MO…. pinag uusapan dito mihca,gcha,iscahm,cacs,aha,aica…..these culinary schools offer DIPLOMA PROGRAMS which QUALIFY AS 1 YEAR IN COLLEGE and you can enroll to even if you are a highschool graduate…I don’t think there was even an instance on this site that we were talking about cooking for kids…Let alone the topic itself is CULINARY SCHOOL FOR GROWN-UPS AND NOT FOR THE DISABLED….HOW IN THE WORLD CAN YOU WORK IN A FINE DINING RESTAURANT/HOTEL IF YOU CAN’T SPEAK!!! There may be special cases but those are going to be REALLY SPECIAL CASES ONLY!!

  • ARANGKADA

    hmmmmmmmnn,

    CK pikon? sowi if dimo rin na gets sinasabi ko,im just telling what i experience coz i myself is pipi cant speak but i studied culinary arts from cooking schhol…

  • eenrol palang sa SKD Academy

    Mr. Obispo was also from CCA management? ISCAHM marketing Manager,MOST as president? and now he want SKD the newest of his craft, SKD Academy have modern kitchen financed by Malaysian Investor, try to visit them at ESTUAR bdlg, Quezon Ave para ma prove niyo that their office is akala mo parang 5 star hotel ang look and ambiance…. anong say niyo? come and visit them.
    1- Instructor NO NO NO NO NO ,they have many as in marami silang instructor, yun ang akala niyo…Mr. Obispo pa? marami ng pinayaman na Cooking school sa Pinas ang mamang ito…siya ang nagpadami ng campus ng MOST hindi si Ms Borja …

    Sa MOST INSTITUTE? magulo daw toto ba MOST? lalo na sa Main Campus nila…

    Gawd, whatever happened to free speech and “just my two cents” worth? Pwede ba wag pikon ang mga tao dito, kung meron gusto mag bigay ng opinyon at gusto mong sumalungat, pwede bang paki construct lang in a positive way? No need for name calling and shouting.

  • sisig

    eenrol pa lang sa SKD
    yes, magulo nga sa MOST main, sa dami ng students. peaceful nga daw jan sa SKD. Peace be with you.

    Law student dati,
    its very hard to compare,kasi sa MOST ako nag enrol e. syempre sabihin ko maganda MOST, syempre yung taga MIHCA sasabihin maganda sa MIHCA. Facilities? hands down ,maganda sa MIHCA.Sorry ha, hindi ata ako nakatulong sayo. Pero to be truthful, ang pwede lang mag compare ng 2 school yung naka-experience mag aral in both schools.

  • sisig

    Oo nga CK, medyo parang pikon ka. hindi mo ba napansin parang walang buhay yung Liga.net nyo.Bka takot magtanong yung ibang interesado sa Culinary. Kaya parang mas may buhay pa discussions dito. Kita mo,di ka makareply kay arangkada. O,baka mapikon ka nanaman ha.

O cge wala buhay sa site ng liga!!! eh kse nasa general miting na kami!!! di na namin kelangan mag online pa!!! ..I…nutil ka!!! si Boss CK di kelangan magpost ng magpost dahil may mas importante pa syang ginagawa sa buhay kesa sagutin ang mga t….a….nga dito sa site na to!!! Tira..hin mo tropa namin!!! ang Liga Kulinarya local lang nya tinayo pero alam mo bang member sya ng ICCAN – International Chefs & Culinary Arts Network!!! plus busy kme for preparation sa WOFEX 2009!! ALAM MO BA KUNG ANO UNG MGA UN???

  • Dellmatrix

    People…just so you know chefs aren’t the nicest people around… cheers to Chef CK for being crude!! Bakit ba kse may name calling…sa pagtingin ko sa sagutan ni Arangkada at CK eh parang mali naman si arangkada…don’t name call agad bro/sis… Kahit sino naman mapipikon kung name call ka kaagad eh di mo naman kilala ung tao… Ang topic dito is culinary school for careers..not for kids nor the disabled…pede sa disabled for career pero di nabanggit dito… As for CK.. I can’t blame you man.. I’m not the nicest person either on the kitchen but bro control yourself before you torch the server…You are talking to mere mortals…hehe… people if you really want to be chefs then please understand how real chefs behave…somehow we shout or curse but its mostly endearment… Chefs were never known to be nice…. Know that by heart!!

  • CK

    Para sa inaakalang pikon ako.. People here don’t know me… Some people do…like KC,Sugarplum, Mia…they know how I talk.. They know I talk well… Us chefs don’t like to be talked back on… Lawyers don’t like to be talked back on.. especially when we are proving a point.. Chefs were never meant to be nice… Its a bloodbath in the kitchen… I am INTERNALLY a nice person… May dalawa nga ako ampon sa bahay eh..ung mga inampon ko gusto nila maging chefs..gusto mag culinary… so inampon ko sila kahit di ako mayaman.. dahil gusto nila maging parte ng industriya na to..

    Sa mga nasusupladuhan sakin SORRY.. Pero basahin nyo kung pano ko sagutin ung mga tao sa forum site ng liga… malamang mas may buhay dito kse di naman sikat ung site na ginawa namin and busy kme.. Kusinero kami at ndi mga titig sa monitor at mag internet and WE HATE WANNABEEZ… Most of the members are in concentration with their studies right now… Pansin nyo ung dating active dito na sila Sugarplum..Mia..Happy..Anna…Chef Logro…lahat sila busy sa pag aaral kaya di sila nagpapakita…Same with me on other things…

    Research about Gordon Ramsay, Joel Robuchon, Marco Pierre White and all the others so you’ll know how a chef behaves.. I’m not trying to be one of them and behave like them but this kind of behavior (attitude if you may call it) is INATE to us Chefs.

  • volare

    Global Academy offer Grand Diploma in Pastry and Culinary for 200T, Diploma in Professional Culinary Arts for 120T

    I guess MIHCA don’t offer any diploma just certificate.

  • CK

    Hey iceman. I just read your message. I think I have a copy of curriculums of some if not all of the culinary schools mentioned here :-) The “business entitities” you are talking about mainly advertise diploma/certificate programs for careers in the industry.

    The equation is pretty simple. If you want a career then all the schools mentioned “business entitities” you are talking about offer programs for that purpose. If you just want to learn to cook for home or catering then they have specific programs like short courses or fundamentals. Yeah you are right about schools creating their courses for their target market… but thats probably the smallest portion..most if not all of them have the same general market which is for career purposes. Other programs like for businesses is just for fallout.

    They create their curriculum/courses based on the outcome of their feasibility, somehow mark-up for profit, and then these categories:

    Capability of their faculty – Meaning what they can and cannot teach
    Prices of the ingredients – Depends on what menus they use in the school
    Utilities – electricity, water, pesticide, insecticide :-)
    Facilities – payment for whatever investment they had setup for the school like stoves and pans and such

    Some schools may have much more specifics like for shipping purposes (MIHCA and Genting Star Academy) but in general as long as it says Diplom/Cerficicate in Culinary Arts/Commercial cooking/Gourmet Cooking it still has one general market which is for people who want a career. They may use it for business but it still is for a career.

    Baka sabihin nyo na naman suplado ako ha…Sumasagot lang po ako :-) (dami smiley..para magmukha naman daw ako mabait)

  • Bloodz

    Volare
    Thanks!

  • Bloodz

    @Volare
    Ooops I forgot to ask panu pala ung cut ng payment nya?

  • volare

    in Global Academy, they have this installment method of payment

  • Bloodz

    ohh ok tnx well I’ll just visit global academy tom. or tuesday ^^

    parang galit na galit ka?! cool ka lang, ang tapang mo pala ,scary!
    Hindi ko nga alam yung mga binanggit mo,nag aaral palang ako eh. Ano nga ba yung horse radish? malunggay ba yon o wasabe?And yung ICCAN, para lang ba sa magagaling na chef yon? Pano ba sumali dun?Oo nga pala Boy Bato,ikaw rin ba si Pangit Most?
    CK
    what i am saying is that you started a group to help out people who are interested in your profession, but you seem irritated when people ask you questions that you feel are dumb. Remember that these are people with almost zero knowledge regarding culinary arts schools,kaya nga nagtatanong eh. And yes, chefs shout and curse in the kitchen,but you are not in the kitchen.wala ka naman sigurong pressure habang sumasagot ka sa mga tanong dito.wala kang HACCP na binabantayan, wala kang service time na hinahabol.

  • CK

    sisig

    so ano na gusto mo gawin ko ngaun :-) ?

  • Peace

    This forum has turned from helping out newbies to dishing-out personal vendettas. I don’t think explaining yourselves personally really helps the guys here who just want to learn about culinary schools. Then again, with the way you’re conversing, maybe you are educating them on what people in the industry can be like. How sad.

  • sisig

    CK
    okay na, PEACE said it all.don’t have to explain myself.

    To people planning to enter the industry
    Yes nagmumura and naninigaw din kmi, kahit kaibigan namin,pero sa labas ng kusina ,wala na yon.And chefs do that because of the pressure….inside the kitchen.You don’t have to live your lives as if you are always under pressure, and use your profession as an excuse to act that way.Hindi lahat ng chef ganun.

  • sisig

    Boy Bato
    Ano nga pala yung ICCAN – International Chefs and Culinary Arts Network, tama ba? wala kasi sa Google,tingnan ko lang kung pano sumali. Baka ten years from now qualified na ako, malay mo?!

  • iceman

    sisig get over boy bato. Gumagatong ka pa eh. Really interested with ICCAN? Its actually a Culinary Arts network based in Australia. You can find it in google, somehow.

  • CK

    hahahaha @ sisig … binabadtrip ka lang nyan ni Boy Bato… di ko kilala yan.. Ung sinasabi nya though is alam ko ICCAN or International Chefs and Culinary Arts Network is from friendster groups. I just joined that. Join ka din. Kusinero/Kusinera ka pala.. from what resto and school sir/ma’m? care to join us.. I know it looks awkward inviting you in but you’ve got nothing to lose.. possibility of gaining more. Di ako masamang tao. Madali lang mabadtrip. Dami na kse info dito na pede mo basahin eh kaso ung iba they just choose to ask over and over again.. Kapagod kaya magtype ng paulit ulit!

  • Saed Ibn AlBazza

    I am Saeed, a Saudi Citizen and very interested to study Culinary Arts,I just want to inquire this forum or group where can I enroll in a cooking school that they do not involve cooking pork. I’ve heard that there are lot of good Culinary School in the Philippines,to name some where I found from website are CCA,MIHCA GloBAL, CACS MOST Institute, I ‘ve heard that MOST have Halal Culinary Arts I ‘ve search from Internet.. but do they have Muslim chef? do they have separate utensils and kitchen for Halal Cooking, contamination is not allowed for Halal Cookery Pork and Non pork item mix up is not allowed…please I and some of my cousins and friends will be leaving going there in the Philippines. We want a school that is near a boarding house or hotels and restauirant that is also serving halal food.. Is MIHCA good? do they have Halal Cokery included to their curricula? PLEASE HELP US INSALLAH WE WILL BE ION THE PHILIPPINES TO STUDY COOKERY ESPECIALLY ASIAN COOKERY

    SINCERELY YOURS

    SAEED

  • nikko

    saeed,,

    my advise to you is to study Pastry Arts..

  • Ravek

    Help me please .. sana makapag aral na ako sa nov =( kung sino puh makatulong skin

  • sisig

    CK and Iceman,
    Sorry, lakas kasi ni Boy Bato/Pangit Most eh!Di na nga dapat pinapatulan.

    Yes, kusinerO ako,been in the industry for the past 6 years,and had a two year culinary education before that.

    Mr. Ravek
    Why don’t you try MOST Institute, ipon ka lang mga P60,000 (Tuition around 40K, ingredients P20K approximately. 6 months lang yan, once a week. Halo halo ang tao dito,may sikyo,crew ng chowking/jollibee,dentista, nurse, all professions,name it nasa Most yan, Siempre meron din mga Bum. Regarding your age, you’re probably in your 40′s, Students here are from 16- 60yrs old.And if you’re really decided, imposibleng di ka makakuha ng trabaho.

    Mr Saed,
    Yes, MOST Institute has a separate 6-months HALAL Course.Yes, it is under a filipino Muslim Chef, who ,I believe also taught Culinary Arts there in Saudi. And aside from the Muslim Chef, they have four other chefs who are Halal certified by the OMA (Office for Muslim Affairs).

  • concerned

    to Saed Ibn AlBazza,

    heard most institute has Muslim chef teaching Halal culinary arts.

  • katara

    hey im planning na mag enroll sa global… sino po jan currently enrolled??? ano ba need na requirements??? pde ba to follow up n lang ung TOR??? ano ung questions sa interview??? mahirap ba exam??? aheheheh sori dami ko ask… paki sagot asap tnx mwahh

  • j

    to katara:

    ang alam ko na requirements nila ay:
    1. photocopy of birth certificate
    2. photocopy of marriage certificate(if married)
    3. recent id photo: 1pcs 2×2 and 1pcs 1×1
    4.official transcript of record or form 137/138
    5. medical cerificate: lab. results of: chest xray, hematology, urinalysis, fecalysis

    ung about sa exam and interview, ndi ko din alam dhil hndi pa ako enrolled planning to enrol plang din katulad mo.

  • volare

    pwede to follow na lang yung ibang requirements…

    there’s no exam…

    interview is all about why you take the culinary and why Global?

  • iceman

    I haven’t been into this webpage for quite a little while and my screen name was already hacked. Cool!

    Anyway, not to discredit CK, but I really doubt you have the school’s curriculum (Curriculum – set of courses, and their content, offered at a school or university. Plural – Curricula… Peace bro! I’m just a grammar freak) Schools would not provide, even to their students, the whole curriculum. What you may have in your hands are the school’s prospectus. (document provided to potential (prospective) students to attract them to apply for admissions. It usually contains information about the institution and the available courses, including advice on how to apply and the benefits of accepting a place.)

    It would take somebody from the school management to leak out to others their curriculum. Curriculum for most schools is considered a confidential document.

    Again, culinary schools may have the same course or program title such as Diploma/Certifcate in Commercial Cookery and may have the same general purpose (as a career), but they may have a special focus different from others.

    Set ISCAHM as an example. They train students to be Culinary Professionals, while Enderrun trains their students as Culinary Entrepreneurs.

    How do I know these? I help one of the culinary schools mentioned here to be established and operational. We researched the market and the competition within. And yes, I do have their curriculum. And yes I know the minds behind the the culinary schools mentioned here.

    Anyway, I still appreciate CK’s effort to give info to those who need it.

  • katara

    @ j ++ thanx muchy :p cge2 baka one of these days pumunta na ko sa global… ano branch mo balak????

    @ volare== thanx po sa info mejo mei prob kc ung TOR ko 3 months pa daw bago makuha eh salamat sa infos.. super excited na ko weeeeeeeeeeee

  • j

    sa may ortigas, pasig branch…. kaw san? anu course planu mo kunin?

  • camillian

    Bro Iceman, I don’t think entrepreneurs yung sa enderun…diba ADF sila..dun kse ung cousin ko study.. ADF is for career… wla ata silang culinary for entrepreneurs dun.. I know Monica Salamatin and she’s a good friend. They don’t have culinary for entrepreneurs

  • Ravek

    @sisig uhmmm even if not diploma un makakakuha ako??

  • sisig

    Ravek,
    Yes,kung desidido ka magtrabaho sa kitchen. Certificate lang ang binibigay ng MOST, pero employability ng graduates is fairly high,nasa 80% ata. Education will help you land a job in the kitchen, pero what will keep you there is your attitude and character.Pagdating mo sa kusina bale wala na ang diploma or certificate mo, performance na tinitignan. You can go restaurant hopping, kunyari nag susurvey ka, tanong mo lang kung may kitchen staff sila taga MOST, para makita mo first hand na nagkalat na mga graduate ng MOST.

  • iceman

    Hi camillian,

    Yes, Technically they don’t have the program “Culinary Arts for Entrepreneurs” but their mode of training focus more on you setting up your own Culinary Business.

    Enderrun’s curriculum (especially their Bachelor’s degree program) is a mix of Hospitality and Business Management.

  • Mimi

    katara

    im currently enrolled at global, ortigas branch. Pwede naman to follow ang TOR, but they are very strict though when it comes to medical certificate. There is no entrance exam, the school admin will just interview you and will be asked why do you want to take up culinary arts etc…

    Just try to visit their website for further details.

  • camillian

    Bro Iceman, Don’t take this personally but its either you don’t know what you are talking about or you pretend to know something. Enderun is a “COLLEGE”. Of course they have business management courses It doesn’t involve culinary arts and doesn’t mean its for entrepreneurship. ISCAHM is a “CULINARY ARTS SCHOOL” although yeah HM means hotel management but they don’t have that course yet. I’m a graduate of AIM and I probably know which schools teaches what. They don’t have a Culinary Arts program for entreprenuers. period. Please don’t provide false info about schools here. You are causing confusion. Its like saying that taking HRM is like a culinary track for entrepreneurs versus Culinary Arts solely for professional culinary training. You make Enderun sound more expensive than it really is.

    btw…Hope you are also a spelling freak because you already misspelled Enderun twice bro.

  • katara

    @ mimi hi! what do u mean strict regarding the medical certificate??? u mean i have to pass it right away??? im going to Global kasi now na wala pa ko medical waaaa… plsss tell me sumting about whats going on sa school hehe excited na ko…

    @ J aww sa qc branch ako coz mas nearer siya sa place ko.. sayang ahehe im planning to take up the grand diploma… wish me luck ^^

  • Ravek

    @sisig ahh ok .. uhmm.. ask ko lang even certificate ba pwde makapag apply sa mga hotel and cruise? un ksi pangarap ko

  • rachel

    hi guys! i am presently enrolled sa isang university dito sa ilo-ilo city ng 1 year certificate in culinary arts and i am considering this as my preparatory, since yung gus2 ko talaga ay ang Pastry ang baking kaya nagresearch sa mga ibat-ibang schools na nag oofer nito. Gusto ko sana sa ischam kaso mahal :| kaya nghahanap pa rin ako ng mga mas cheaper na schools so Global is my another choice kasi mejo mas mura sya:p

    Kung meron po dyang graduate o enrolled sa certificate in baking and pastry arts nila- ok namn po ba?i mean ano po masasabi nyo sa program nila?:))

  • LEIGH

    HELP! I’m confused. I’d like to study culinary arts. before I read this page I was decided to take up the 6 months Fast Track Pro-Chef Certification @ CCA which costs 185k++ and is being offered in OCEANA near MoA.. but after this, when I looked at some sites of the schools that you guys are mentioning parang nagbabago isip ko… I saw GCHA offers Grand Diploma in Professional Culinary, Baking & Pastry Arts for only 195k++.. more for my money.. and they have a branch near my place.. Las Pinas.. any other schools that you can suggest that’s not too far ? I’d like to check out ISCAHM sana but it’s in Katipunan.. anlayo!

    also, do you know when the next batch in Global will start?

  • sisig

    Ravek

    Yes,hotels and cruise ships accept people who took up Culinary Certificate Courses.
    You can check out Richmonde, Edsa Shang, and Sofitel, if they have MOST graduates under their employ, these are some of the local hotels that I know have MOST graduates.

  • dan

    ask ko lng poh… maganda ba sa ISCAHM? may nakakaalam ba kung kelan ulit ang enrollment? pakisagot nmn plss… tnx..

  • dan

    pwede po ba sa ISCAHM kahit high school grad. lng? at kelan po ulit ang enrollment?

  • Ravek

    @sisig hmmm pag nag MOST ako kayang kaya namn ng parents ko Hmm.. pag global mejo kapos Hmm…. teka nu pala pinag kaiba ng certificate at diploma?? xencia na freshly HS grad lang ako xD

    Hi Guys,

    I found another Culinary Arts School in Paranaque.

    Location: 2nd flr Bldg .2, Santana Grove
    Sucat Road,Paranaque City
    Tel: 3860122
    Mobile: 0917.800.9133
    Facilities: 5 star hotel setting
    Tuition fee? Inquire now

    foreign students are now flocking in this new cooking school

  • sisig

    Ravek
    Di ako sure sa difference ng requirements sa Diploma and Certificate Courses. Alam ko lang di ka ata pwede mag issue ng Diploma if the course is less than a year.

    Dan
    I think all Culinary Schools accept fresh high school graduates. And ISCAHM is one of the good schools in the country. Kung bukas na yun nung time ko ,malamang dun ako nag-enroll.

  • Ravek

    @sisig ahh mostly people say mas ok daw diploma so I wonder nu kaya pinag kaiba nun parehas lang namn nag aral hehehe….. well thanks for answering my question I hope makapag aral na ako sa NOV =) for now tatry ko muna mag hanap mag suport or mag scholar sakin pag la tlga. ang choice ko nlng global na 120K or MOST =D well THANKS !

    No, you dont need to pass right away the medical certificate if you just wish to drop by at Global. What i meant was if you have decided already to enroll at Global, they don’t allow the medical certificate na follow up lang. Your medical cert. must be ready upon enrollment.

    Im having so much fun being enrolled at global, i learned a lot from them. Though at this moment hindi pa kami talagang nagluluto kasi abt safety and sanitation, culinary math etc pa lang ang topic namin.

    You should really have to visit global para you can see for yourself ang facilities nila and what course outline ang ino-offer nila.

    @Ravek

    If I were you sa Center for Asian Culinary Studies ka mag aral. CACS is National Certificate Level III for 68k. I know the certificate level doesn’t matter but really it DOES. 5 months kasama na uniform and knife set. CACS is one of the best schools here in the Philippines with an Alain Ducasse trained instructor which is Gino Gonzalez. Son to the Filipino Culinary legend/icon Gene Gonzalez of Cafe Ysabel who is still teaching as well.

    There are 4 levels of certificates given by tesda and to a school to teach. CACS’ Diploma in Culinary Arts is National Certificate Level IV which is currently the highest TESDA has given to any school so now I think you know what follows. Majority of the schools offering Diploma programs here only have National Certificate Level II. TESDA has set regulations on what to teach and learn from those training/certificate levels as well. Let me explain the difference:

    National Level IV Core competencies:

    1.Prepare foods according to dietary and cultural needs
    2.Transport and store food in a safe and hygienic manner
    3.Apply catering control principles
    4.Develop menus to meet special dietary and cultural needs
    5.Select catering systems
    6.Manage facilities associated with commercial catering contracts
    7.Plan the catering for an event or function
    8.Design menus to meet market needs
    9.Develop a food safety program

    National Certificate Level II Core Competencies

    1.Clean and maintain kitchen premises
    1.Organize and prepare food
    3.Select, prepare and cook meat
    4.Receive and store kitchen (food) supplies
    5.Prepare stocks, sauces and soups
    6.Prepare, cook and serve food for menu
    7.Prepare appetizers and salads (Hot and Cold)
    8.Prepare sandwiches (Hot and Cold)
    9.Prepare vegetables, fruits, eggs and starch dishes
    10.Prepare and cook poultry and game
    11.Prepare, portion and control meat cuts
    12.Prepare and cook seafood
    13.Prepare hot and cold desserts
    14.Prepare pastry, cakes and pop paste
    15.Package prepared foodstuffs
    16.Present food

    TESDA Philippines’ framework for Culinary is mirrored by TAFE Australia

    And under TAFE Level IV..the training is like a qualification to become an executive chef.. You have to start from the bottom of the kitchen brigade but knowledge wise you will have more than those who trained for other Lower levels..for TAFE Level III is training for Sous Chef position. Level II is Demi-Chef,Commis,Kitchen Helper

    This is NOT TO DEGRADE STUDENTS or even those SCHOOLS who have NCII in the Philippines.. This is just sharing of knowledge :-)

  • CK

    @Ravek .. nga pala ung sa CACS Diploma in Culinary, Baking and Pastry Arts is DIPLOMA from the school plus CERTIFICATE LEVEL IV from TESDA.. Ung Certificate in Cooking and Baking Skills is CERTIFICATE from the school plus CERTIFICATE LEVEL III from TESDA

  • sisig

    @ CK
    Just curious, if CACS offer courses with NC3 and NC4 levels, does that mean that their unstructors are also NC4 or at least NC3 competent?

  • sisig

    @ CK
    Sorry, I meant “instructors”.
    And also, di ba it is not automatic that if you finished this courses you get a TESDA NC certificate right away? Di ba you have to take a test at TESDA to determine your competency?So parang Board/Bar exam,wherein TESDA is the regulatory body?

  • CK

    Yes…pag ung course is NC3 or NC4 ung instructor dapat nag undergo din ng NC3-4 “Full qualification exam” AND they have to undergo AM-TM (Assessor’s Methodology, Trainers Methodology Exam/Training)

    Yes the certificate from TESDA doesn’t come automatically. The process goes this way:

    1.You take a particular course that is guided by the National Certificate guidelines and competencies.

    2.Once you graduate the course you will take the “Full Qualification Exam” which will give you whatever Certificate Level you were training for.

    The difference about Level 2,3,4 of Certificates from TESDA is competency for a position. Like NCIV, it qualifies you to be an Executive Chef. NCIII for Sous Chef and so on BUT it doesn’t mean that you can demand that position once you graduate the training. You still have to start from the bottom although what separates you from the others is the level of knowledge you get out of the training which CAN QUALIFY you to be an executive chef and so on.

    TESDA’s Competencies based on the Certificate Level actually plays a big role on the school’s curriculum, it has to be in-line with the TR given by TESDA. A school can be certified by TESDA to teach the competencies of a certain level by these strict criterias

    1.Their school’s facilities has been certified by TESDA guided by the TR(training regulation) of the particular certificate level.

    2.The school’s instructors have more than 3-4 years of industry experience and have taken the AM-TM Exam/Training

    3. And many more…but these two are what I would say the most important.

  • CK

    @ravek

    Sa tanong mo about para sa kukunin o ang CACS – Center for Asian Culinary Studies kse they offer NCIII training kse kaya kung kaya mo dun ka na lang. But sa cases ng other schools NCII lang inooffer nila.

    Para naman sa tanong mo about me. Actually kahit ako nalilito tungkol sa issue ng diploma and certificate na yan. The story goes like this:

    1.Degrees such as Master’s, Bachelor’s and Associates is what you get from taking college and finishing required subjects with passing grades.

    2.Diploma is a CERTIFICATE you get from taking a particular course that has required hours/days to complete and requires you to take an examand with passing grades before you are given the CERTIFICATE.

    3.An ordinary certificate is what you get from completing a particular course which may or may not require certain hours/days to complete and also doesn’t require you to take/finish/pass a certain exam. e.g. Certificate of Completion/Certificate of Attendance.. << yung ganyan lang ang nakalagay bale.

    So to answer your question basing it on what I wrote here, I am currently finishing my “Diploma in Commercial Cooking Level NCII”. But prior to taking this “Diploma course” and 2 other culinary courses from different schools, I’ve already been working in the kitchen for 3 years and took up HRM in college.

  • sisig

    Thanks CK
    one more question, can you take NC4 qualifying exam right away without taking NC1-3?

  • Ravek

    mukang madmi pa ako pag dadaanan hahaha

  • Weird

    NC IV sounds really interesting, but honestly it’s a bit dubious. I acknowledge that there are certain skill sets that an executive chef can have (which is what supposedly an NC IV allows you to be, according to one entry here), but I’m sure all those participating in this forum knows that academic practice is not enough. Just as a degree in management can’t make a manager, a certificate can’t make an executive chef.

    I’d rather have an NC II, which teaches me the basic skills needed, and let hard work and experience make me an executive chef.

    Just a thought.

  • nikko

    ck knows that (wierd)…

  • nikko

    weird, ck knows that

  • Ravek

    @sisig

    ahh so HRM ka tpos ,ngaun nag certificate ka para sa culinary??
    so u mean d ka nag tpos ng culinary na diploma ? am i right?

  • sisig

    @ravek
    I finished a two-year diploma course in culinary arts.

  • Ravek

    @sisig san ka nag aral?

  • tortaalamang

    ck:

    I’m planning to take culinary arts and kitchen mgt. in ISCAHM. What certain level ito? Is this course ba fit for me regarding with my age at 40? Pls comment

  • sisig

    @ravek
    CCA ako sir

  • CK

    tortalalamang,

    Any age school will do ok with your age..not sure kung tesda affiliated ang ISCAHM…pero problem sir is most hotels and restaurants today have age limitations na..di ko sure kung alin2x pero AFAIK kse meron students sa school ko dati na 40+ di sila tinanggap kahit ojt…di ko kayo tinatakot pero at least you know what you can expect po…

  • CK

    @sisig, AFAIK ndi pede eh…

  • Ravek

    @CK
    Ang global academy ba tesda affiliated?

  • CK

    @Ravek yes they are

  • Ravek

    @CK

    I forgot to ask eh ung MOST ganun din?

  • sisig

    @ CK
    Ah,so kailangan kunin lahat yon? Pero nag NC2 ako without NC1?Medyo magulo din kasi ang TESDA.Dapat require nila all graduates to take the appropriate NC’s, para automatic pag graduate mo may TESDA NC Certificate ka na.

  • CK

    @sisig

    Lahat kse somehow start sa NCII..may 3 main competencies..namely:

    Hot Kitchen
    Cold Kitchen
    Basic Baking/Pastry

    Ung NCI kse is like Hot kitchen lang..choice kse yung..kung gusto mo concentration mo lang is hot kitchen ok lang.. Ung iba may NCIII kse specialized na halos ung training module.. Like sa CACS…ung training nila somehow for the course is not exactly the same as with other schools who have NCII (at least that’s what it looks like)

    Some schools won’t let you take NCIII without taking NCII like CLICKS in santolan..But CACS gets you straight to NCIII or NCIV.

    Magulo tlga tesda..Ewan ko ba…pero mirrored kse ng TAFE ng australia..ganun din sistema nila so I guess ganun tlga..

  • lily

  • dana marie

    hi ask ko lng kung magkano ung tuition sa CLICKS? ng advance culinary arts.. and ok ba ung turo dun? tnx

  • CK

    @dana marie .. sa CLICKS di ka pede mag advanced pag di ka nag basic… ang tuition fee ng basic is 39-46K ata

  • Ravek

    What is CLICKS?

  • CK

    FOR THOSE WHO ARE CONFUSED:

    *What is a Certificate or Diploma?

    A certificate—or a diploma as it is sometimes called—is the shortest course of study. It is also the least expensive type of academic credential.

    Certificates consist of courses that help you develop career competency in a single subject.

    A certificate typically consists of from three to twelve courses, all commonly completed within a year or a year-and-a-half of study.

    *When to Seek a Certificate or Diploma?

    When you …

    • Need to acquire skills quickly to launch a new career
    • Already hold one degree but seek to launch a new career not related to that degree
    • Need to meet state or national licensing requirements
    • Have no college degree but probably will earn one later. (Right now, though, your goal is to acquire skills as quickly as possible to launch a new career.)

    If any of the above criteria mirror your circumstances a certificate will be your quickest—and least expensive—course of study.

    A certificate will help you get educated—and get on with your life.

    *Launch a New Career — Fast

    Most people enroll in certificate programs in hopes of quickly changing careers. For example, you might be employed as a retail clerk but want to qualify for a new job as an accountant. You want to qualify as quickly as possible—ideally within a year. In this case, you’d be wise to focus your studies on a certificate in bookkeeping

  • chowder

    Check out First Gourmet Academy..ganda ng school kahit bago p lang…Dating executive chef ang instructor Chef Mats Loo who also runs AICA after Chef Rob..Mondays to Fridays ang classes unlike other schools na 3x or 4x a week ang classes..Im not judging other schools but i think this school is more affordable 250k tuition for the whole course i dont know if there are hidden charges..

    Hi! I’m currently a Fourth Year High School student here in Manila and I’m planning to take Culinary Arts after graduating. I’m confused whether to enroll at ISCAHM or CCA (those two schools lang ang malapit samin). My question is… Do I have a chance to be accepted in a culinary school even if I have a knee disorder? I had my knee surgery 3 years ago. I can walk naman but not fast enough.

    I’m hoping for your replies. I really want to study culinary arts badly. :(

  • tjms

    hi, i hav inquired at global academy hir in pasig, ortigas to b specific, dey offer installment basis for the professional culinary arts diploma, its 120k. im stil thinkin if dey hav good quality education regarding culinary arts, and if dat NC level with tesda really matters when u took up dat cors cos global is only on NC level II i guess. wud dat matter wenever ur fnished wid ur course and ur applying for a job?

    need ur feedbacks and ideas guys. thanks so much

  • rouvers

    waht i dont like about iscahm,though they are hailed as the best culinary school,is that they dont have a specific and strong recruitment or job contingency program, like saying, “ill just educate you, and you can carry our name and reputation but dont expect us to guide you and support you through your job huntings and applications” i dont think even think have affiliations where they can recommend outstanding students for a more secure employment. i know its really up to the person to succeed but, if other culinary schools can offer assistance because for sure they are the most likely to have these affiliations, why not help. well atleast thats how i see it from their website. its like, ok now that yuore finished with the formal education, now go spread your wings and fly and we dont care how you do it or if youll ever make it, or maybe im just wrong. maybe i have missed out some areas on their website

  • Ravek

    yung global sa QC I think malapit na mag open kasi nung pumunta ako sa ortigas tinatnung nila ako kung gs2 ko daw sa QC branch nila

    @tjms you can apply job even if you are NC II But if you want much high level NC III I know CACS is NC III try there

    When choosing a culinary school it is important to make sure you really understand what you are paying for. Divide the number of hours in school with the tuition price. If you for example find out how much you pay per hour at Global you will discover that this school is actually one of the most expensive. It looks cheap on paper but please be reminded that you as a student will only go to school four days a week, three and a half hour per day for only four months. Compare this to another school that a student will go to school five days a week and stay each day in the kitchen for more time and soon you will see that Global is actually very expensive. Another thing with Global is that in this school a lot of time is spent in the lecture room. About 30 – 50 percent of the cooking is done by the instructor with the students just observing not doing actual coooking themselves. I am sure that all chefs agree with me that in order to become a good chef you need to do the cooking your self.
    I am a student from Global. I just finished my OJT at one of the big hotels. At this hotel I met other students from other culinary schools. I discoverd that in many ways me as a student had big disadvantages compared to the other culinary students. I especially remember a couple of students from First Gourmet Academy that I thought was much better than me. They explained that the instructor of that school has so much international experience from big hotels and cruise ships that he knows how a real life operation should be runned. And this is how those students had been prepared. As a student from Global Academy I feel that everything that was taught to me came from instructors that follow the book promptly and do not have the correct working experience. Also the curriculum is simply too short.
    So as far as making a choice in what culinary school to go to. See the tuition price as an investment in your professional future. Also find out for what you are really paying. Find out the price per hour and you will notice that the cheapest one is not always the case.

  • rouvers

    just wanted to ask anyone, if you are already applying for a job , which is more preferable? working on a cruise ship or in hotels and restaurants? salary wise and profession wise( enhancement or development, experience,competitiveness)

  • dave

    Be careful of CACS. If you need to back out for any reason or change your plans. Do everything in person(with the same person every time hopefully) and get it in writing. I recently had to change my plans due to a visa problem. We called and canceled like we were supposed to. Then now that visa issues have been settled I attempt to use my deposit for class(es). Now the office personnel say they have no record of us ever calling and our deposit is forfeit. At the time of the deposit I even clarified and confirmed the point several times that if I was unable to attend I could reschedule. So now all I can do is warn others of the dishonest business practices of the staff at CACS and perhaps let Chef Gene know what kind of people are working for him. I suppose it is better than them working for the government. Goodness knows we have enough corrupt people there. Best of luck to all.

  • mommy23

    hi.. how much ba ang tuition sa mihca,and ano mga scopes ng exam? ok ba dun? thanks

  • parteedude

    Hi everyone! Ive read a lot of comments and suggestions sa forum na to. thanks so much for the information on each schools that was mentioned.

    But up to now i’m still clueless on which school to go to…

    I know how to cook a few but iba parin ang me degree sa culinary. (correct me if im wrong) thats why I really want to pursue a career in culinary. was able to find my passion in it.

    So now the question is whats really the best culinary school to go to? PRACTICALITY WISE AND FUTURE WISE…

  • Ravek

    @parteedude, for me there is no best school , kasi nasa tao na yun kung pag bubutihan niya ang pag aaral niya , kasi ang isang tao kahit nsa magnda school ka tpos d ka nag aaral ng mabuti wala parin kwenta. =D

    @mommy23 just call MIHCA (+63 2) 524-9996 / (+63 2) 526-1721
    para kung may iba ka pa question maask mo saknla ng diretso , uhmm…. some of my relatives studied there and ngaun nsa barko na sila =D

    Check out First Gourmet Academy in Quezon City. That school deserves a lot more notice and appreciation in this thread.
    The instructors are very experienced from abroad and the facilities are really first class.

  • erika

    ano dito and pinaka-ok? gusto ko sana yung tipong pagkagraduate ko dun sa diploma culinary course nila, i’d be able to work abroad. ISCAHM, AICA, AHA, First Gourmet, CACS, ICA. ano pinakamaganda sa hands-on, nagtuturo, facilities, etc? ano pinaka-okay? your replies will be very much appreciated. thanks guys! :)

  • erika

    hello ck!
    it’s erika. it took me almost 3 hours to read everything and im so confused right now.i just wanna ask. what school do you think is the best over-all? i dont care what the price is wether its cheap or expensive. i focus more on the quality of education, facilities, teachers, ojt, wether we can work abroad and the hands on would be more frequent. because i really want to attend a school which can provide me a first class, high quality education. i’m hoping for your soonest reply. thanks a lot!

  • erika

    sana kahit mabigyan niyo lang ako ng top 2. pls pls. thanks!

  • Adik

    @Richard

    Hahaha…. And instructor sa First Gourmet Academy is dating instructor ng AICA (Academy for International Culinary Arts). And I think you already know that AICA and Global are sister schools.. The price and kind of education sa AICA and First Gourmet Academy are almost or probably in some aspects are the same. 270k something ata sila parehas. Sabi nga ni Chef Rob “Ang AICA is like a ferrari..it gets you there plus more…for Global its a trusty toyota…you don’t get more but it gets you there” Obvious naman sa price ng tuition diba?? 270 thousand compared against 120..common sense people… Kung di ka bilib sa school mo bibigyan kita ng reason. A certain student from your school after graduating nag apply sya sa isang Michelin starred restaurant sa France ata un…eh NATANGGAP SYA!!! Ndi siguro sya tatanggapin kung wlang kwenta ung school. Again like chef Rob said…IT GETS YOU THERE.. Kung susumahin mo Global na ang pinaka murang culinary school na diploma program ang inooffer and with qualified instructors..Over qualified pa nga eh..

  • rouvers

    napapansin ko lang ah, bakit parang karamihan ng mga chefs e maaangas at mayayabang, kahit nanonood ako ng mga cooking shows hosted by chefs or mga shows na may coordinations ng mga chefs e nakikita ko talaga maxado bilib sa sarili na kala mo alam nya lahat lalo na how they treat other people in the same field, sa pinas,wala pa naman, at least personally wala pako na eencounter. pero mukhang dito sa forum na to parang madami potential. naisip ko tuloy, kung passion ko pagluluto at pangarap ko maging isang mahusay na chef, pero ganun lang magiging ugali ko, wag na lang.

    KORAK! it is all depends on you.. balewala ang tution fee, instructors etc kung ikaw mismo eh nagpapakaayos…. JUST MY CENTS.

    To add na rin. Im not here to endorse our school. Its just all the instructors are graduated abroad and gained experienced abroad. Maybe basic lang talaga tinuturo pero it all starts sa basic lang talaga… kung baga minor muna, its a pre requisite bago ka kumuha ng major.

  • Hamlet909

    @Adik

    Yes the instructor from First Gourmet is a former instructor in AICA, but i think global and AICA are not sister schools anymore. First Gourmet only charges 175,000 for 9 months. Guys, picking a culinary school is like applying for college. You have to choose the right one, you want a good school that provides the proper training and allows you to find a good position within the food industry. When picking the right school you have to consider the following: Price, the instructors, the environment of the school, the maximum students per course, the legnth of the course and offcourse the time spent doing hands-on cooking.

    Just think about it, try to compute the cost per hour of each school, and also consider the amount of time spent doing the actual cooking. Global is very cheap, but you dont do much cooking their, id rather watch AFC or lifestyle channel than pay hundred thousands of pesos and just watch the instructor do demo most of the time. First Gourmet Academy only charges 175,000 for 9months, they have classes mon-fri and they do actual cooking everyday, plus the chef is from Sweden that has alot of experience from big cruise ships and restaurants in Europe. Picking a school is not about what you can just afford, its not only up to the student whether they want to learn or not. Instructors, facilities, and the environment plays an important role to learning. So guys, think about it.. its the VALUE for money that you should think about. You dont want to pay hundreds of thousands and not get what you want or expected.

  • John

    Alos google the website of First Gourmet Academy and pay them a visit. I have been in this school three months now and feel really good about it. I am developing all the time and feel like I am on the right track to become a good chef very soon. The tuition fee is very low and as hamlet 0909 says. If you go to a school like Global where you pay less you will actually not get what you want. Compare the price per hour between global and First Gourmet Academy and you will notice that global is not only much more expensive than First Gourmet academy but also the most expensive one in the whole metro.
    First gourmet Academy is also offering prospective students to join in their classes for a day or two before enrolling. They will borrow you the things needed and you will join another class to see how a normal day is. This ill give you the opportunity to ask questions to students “behind the back” of the staff of the school. I think that this is the only school that offers this.

  • Marvin

    @John
    Hi John,
    I have also heard that Global is actually very expensive when you think about it. But I also know that the batches in this school are with twenty students and only one instructor. I visited the branch in Ortigas to check it out but the facilities is not at all like your school at First gourmet Academy I understand or like ISCAHM. I will pay FGA a visit soon and try to sit in for a day for free as you informed me you can do.
    Some questions to you or anyone else that can answer this…

    How much is First gourmet academys diploma course?
    Are there any special payment schemes?
    How many hours is required in school?
    How many hours OJT?
    How much experience does the instructors have?
    When does next batch start?
    Does the instructors have connections with hotels or cruise lines abroad?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Niky E.

    Hello, I want to take culinary arts after I graduate from High school. The problem is, I can’t find any culinary school that offers 2-3 years in culinary arts. Does anyone knows any culinary school here in Manila that offers 2-3 years of culinary? Thank you.

  • John

    Hi Niky E,
    There is CCA that offers a 2 year Diploma course. However I would not encourage you to go there. I am a former student from First Gourmet Academy. A new school in Quezon City. I am at the moment finishing my OJT. At the hotel where I am are also students from CCA as well as other culinary schools in the metro. I know just as much as the CCA students if not more, even though they have spent much more time in school than me. Why spend more than 600.000 PHP when you can learn more from a school in less than a year and pay less than 200.000. Check FGA out. I can strongly recommend it.

  • Niky E.

    @ John,

    Thanks for the info! I saw the FGA’s website, Does the “Diploma in Commercial Cooking, Culinary Arts and Entrepreneurship” is a 2 years course or not? and Where do you OJT? I like overseas OJT, is there any culinary school with overseas OJT? Thank you.

    Nag enrol ako sa FGA ng diploma nila, magnda curiculum nila. The instructor shares us his experience nung nag cruise ship siya and work sa ibang restaurants sa Europe. Very practical ang mga turo samin, i have to say he trained us not just to be a good cook, but he is molding us to become great chefs.

  • Ravek

    @Niky E
    I forgot to tell you check out also Center Asian Culinary they have good curiculum and facilities at NC3 cla

  • Marvin

    I have checked out FGA on site. Beautiful. Easily the best facilities in the whole Metro. You should all check it out. I have also looked at ISCAHM, CCA, AICA, Global and CACS. All those schools do not have a chance to FGA. I also had the opportunity to talk to some of the students that are enrolled there now. They are raving about it. I made up my made on the spot and will enroll in their evening batch that will start November 9.
    The thing is now that they not only give an early bird discount of more than 25 %. They also give a discount if you enroll as a group. So if there are a few of you out there that are interested in enrolling leave a note here and we enroll together as a group and avail of the discount.

  • rouvers

  • DAN

  • chowder

    I just want to ask the former students of FGA..how many cuisines do they teach you in that school..tnx

  • Joyce

    @chowder

    Lahat ng cuisines tinuturo sa FGA. Kahit Filipino, its awkward nga kc european chef magturo syo gumawa ng filipino food. Pero he is good, kc kinukwento din nya ung mga pinoy n chef n nakatrabho nya sa cruise ships kaya natuto rin cya gumwa.

  • Ravek

    @Dan
    anu ba question mo?

  • catt

    hi! i read some replies from students from GLOBAL and AHA.. so far ang nakikita kong advantage sa GLOBAL is ung concept ng GRAND diploma. Sa AHA naman and binibida nila ung internship.. so i guess my question is.. after finishing the grand diploma.. may kasama na ba ung internship abroad like AHA? or anything like that?

    thanks! will appreciate ur reply!

  • Gail

    @CATT

    im from global. they,ve told me naman na pwede maginternship abroad, they will just give you recommendation letter. ikaw mag aasikaso ng visa mo. sa AHA, ganun din naman, ikaw lahat mag aasikaso. kasi dun nagaral anak ng co-worker na dad ko.

  • Tin A.

    wow thanks guys for the info. now i have more choices to choose. di ko lam na marami pa palang culinary school dito and may school pala na hindi same price as with CCA. haha thanks guys. siguro sa GCHA ako yung professional. by school year ba yun? or anytime pwede ka pumasok?

  • Gail

    TIN A.

    you can enroll anytime. all year round naman yun eh. pero syempre waiting ka. but atleast naka reserved ka na sa time slot na gusto mo

  • Rae

    Hello! I am currently out of the country right now, and I’m very much interested to enroll in GCHA. I am working as a Secretary here in the Middle East, pero undergraduate ako sa college. Ano ba requirements for a transferee? I’ll be going home this month or maybe next month to check out some culinary schools. Thank you in advance for any information that’ll be provided.

    Have a nice day.

  • CK

    @ravek and @gail

    oist must naman kayong mga taga global!! di na kayo napasyal ah…

    anyways bka iwan ko ung site sa isa sa mga members.. I’m not sure yet pero bka punta me either London,Australia, or Qatar, sa Qatar for work. So sana matuloy un, kung sa London or Australia eh study un. Biglang bumait yung tiyahin kong kuripot. She said she’s going to send me to Le Cordon Bleu Sydney or in London..I’m keeping my hopes up. Sabi ko kse gusto ko pdn mag aral ulet…para kseng di ako kuntento not unless maganda/signature school ung napuntahan ko eh kaso ayaw ko dito sa Pinas. Some of the schools have good programs pero syempre Le Cordon Bleu na ang pinag uusapan. I know na ndi sya important pero graduating from Le Cordon Bleu puts you way ahead of the pact internationally provided na subsob ka sa pag aaral and syempre getting work in australia and london is not going to be hard because somehow Le Cordon Bleu has a very large network.. hayzzz… wala lang…kwento lang…bka ma mis interpret na naman ng iba…

  • samson

    the most epensive culinary school is global why? you pay so much and learn so little 4months daw 3hrs lang a day at 4 days a week lang mas matagal pa yun ojt nya kaysa yun time ng pagturo nila. you learn nothing in global sa ojt kayo matututo not in that school its a diploma mill. pera pera lang yan kay rob pengson hes not a culinarian hes a businessman trying to make as much money as he can at the expense of his students.

  • samson

  • samson

    by the way someone said achievement of rob pengson ano yun what is his achievement in culinary?

  • samson

    and dont be fooled by the student ratio 1 is to 12 ang dami nyo 12 kayo grabe kami 27 in a class but 5 lang kami naka group 5 only not 12 .
    what makes a good culinary school? learn from the master chef true culinarians not tv celebrity hindi fashion show ang culinary na pa pogi na lang ng pa pogi and remember quiki school doesnt teach you much

  • samson

    wag kayo magsisi pag sa global kayo magaral

  • Ravek

    @samson
    So far I dont see student na nag sisi na nag aral sa global LOL natatawa ako sau masyado mo pinag iinitan ang global -_-

  • Ravek

    @Niky E.

  • Ravek

    @catt
    Tama ka hehe … puro paninira lang =D d ko nga alam kung si chef Rob ba gs2 nya sirain or ung buong global =D

  • napadaan lng

    anu bang dpat na dress code for a school interview?

  • Joyce

    tama rin nmn si samson, but he just said it in a bad way. dpt hnd maxado pinaginitan hehe. My mga naka OJT ako tga global sa hotel, hmmm. no comment. pero for global students, totoo ba na my time na magdemo lng ung instructor and he will just ask help from you guys? or mg demo cya then afterwards you do it individually?

  • Ravek

    @Joyce
    D pa naman ako nag strt mag study dun , pero nung pumunta ako nag observe ako meron cla lecture room then after that mag demo cla , then I know bibigyan din cla ng time para mag luto , kasi nung pumunta ako 2 class ung nandun ung isa nag dedemo then the other class nag coocook sila dami pa nga niluluto ehh kitang kita ko hehe

  • Ravek

    @joyce ..
    I forgot to tell , may point din si samson but bkit kailngn natin tingnan ang negatives ng school bkit hnd nlng natin tingnan ung positives db? cguro namn every school may negative dyan IMPOSSIBLE na wala

  • Gail

    @JOYCE

    from what school you from?

  • Gail

    @JOYCE

    i dunno which branch are you referring 2. sa alabang demo ang chef then the following day practical na. HELP? nagpapatulong lang si chef pag kelangan na ipaligpit yung mga nagamit na para clear yung station, but from prep time to plating si chef lahat gumagawa.

  • Gail

    im not affected sa sour graping ni samson. im happy with my global family. matass grades ko coz im doing great talaga.. kung bitter ka samson.. well. have it your way..

  • Ravek

    @Gail
    Ask ko lang if nag interview sa global , sinu mag interview sau? and marunong ba mag tagalog?

  • Gail

    @RAVEK

    hi there! school coordinator po. Di naman interview eh. parang orientation din. mostly mga tinatanong lang kung pag ojt na eh ok ka ba ng gabi? Why culinary arts? why this school? Yep, you can communicate in tagalog naman po. For formalization lang yun dont worry. di ka babagsak dun.. Kelan ba sched mo and where branch?

  • Ravek

    @niky E.
    No problem =D

  • Kulinarista

    @gail and @ravek.

    mukhang may epz dito na bago ah……Sir samson bago ka magsalita about chef rob look at his credentials muna… Alam mo ba na maraming mas mura pa sa Global pero walang kwenta? Global is like in the middle of everything.. You get what you want and what you expect…

    May reasons ang global kung bakit ganyan ang tuition nila…sana matalino ka para alamin yun.. Ang ibang school eh 300k plus ang tuition pero madami naman sa tinuturo nila is minsan di na kelangan…

    Sa global they stripped their curriculum to make it affordable and logical sa mga gusto mag culinary….Tignan mo ung sister school nila na AICA…mahal ang tuition kse iba ang tinuturo and kung ano2x pa…compare mo sa Global…

    Ang AICA is like a ferrari…maxado bongga and whatevs…ang Global Toyota…. both will get you there..kaya lang may bonus sa AICA…

    Mag isip ka nga samson…kung di successful ung mga graduates ng global lalago ba ung business nila? not to mention 3 branches sila? kse kung palpak sila madali ipagkalat ng mga students na wala kwenta ung school.

    Bitter ka ba samson? bakit? di ka natanggap sa Global? kawawa ka naman..O bka naman wala ka pinag aralan o wala ka alam sa mundo? Bago ka magsalita may research ka muna ha…

  • nikko

    yup tama si kulinarista..hindi lalago ang globa; kung hindi sila magaling..i am a student from aica..

  • dan

    wew…

    nawala lang ako dun may gyera na? hehe.. anu 2 culinary war? hahaha…. buti pa kau malapit na pasukan nyo sa global… eh aq sa january pa daw start ng class sa ISCAHM.. hehe.. Goodluck sa mga tga GLOBAL.. hehe

  • LEIGH

    CSB in consortium with the CACS is offering a Certificate in Culinary Arts. I called them up kanina (5215848) to inquire. They said it’s TESDA Certificate Level 4. Tuition 350K… Ang difference lang nya sa mismong CACS is sa CSB ka mag apply and dun may lecture for 4 months… then lab in CACS for 10 months, then 2 months OJT…. next batch starts on Nov

    Sa CACS naman, I also called them up, next batch starts on Sept29, Tuition:360K+.. wala na sila nung 4 months lecture.

    share ko lang.. ^_^

  • Gail

    @LEIGH

    360K? sobrang mahal na pala!! I inquired before sa CACS, 325k pa lang. At first dun ko talaga plano magaral.. kaya lang too far from my place and the sched available is 5pm..

  • Bobby Fillet

    According to these definitions:

    Certificate
    A program that takes LESS THAN ONE YEAR to complete as a full time student. It often can be transferred into the diploma or degree

    Diploma
    A program that takes between ONE to TWO YEARS to complete as a full-time student. It often can be transferred into an associate degree in that field of study.

    Paano naging Diploma itong mga culinary schools na ito?
    Global Academy -diploma (8mos)
    Global City Innovative College -diploma (8mos)
    AICA -diploma(8mos)
    First Gourmet -diploma(9mos)

  • Gail

    @BOBBY

    onga noh?

    pero sa global po eh may 1year diploma (combined culinary and pasrty) may 8months din (culinary alone)

    yung iba talaga 6months lang pero diploma pa din..

    hmmm….

  • Kulinarista

    @Bobby Fillet

    Kahit sang lupalop ka pa ng mundo pumunta eh ganito ang definition..got this from Chef CK which I later on learned na given definition ito from a school in Canada and schools in the US as well.

    *What is a Certificate/Diploma?

    A certificate—or a diploma as it is sometimes called—is the shortest course of study. It is also the least expensive type of academic credential.

    Certificates consist of courses that help you develop career competency in a single subject.

    A certificate typically consists of from three to twelve courses, all commonly completed within a year or a year-and-a-half of study.

    *When to Seek a Certificate or Diploma?

    When you …

    • Need to acquire skills quickly to launch a new career
    • Already hold one degree but seek to launch a new career not related to that degree
    • Need to meet state or national licensing requirements
    • Have no college degree but probably will earn one later. (Right now, though, your goal is to acquire skills as quickly as possible to launch a new career.)

    If any of the above criteria mirror your circumstances a certificate will be your quickest—and least expensive—course of study.

    A certificate will help you get educated—and get on with your life.

    *Launch a New Career — Fast

    Most people enroll in certificate programs in hopes of quickly changing careers. For example, you might be employed as a retail clerk but want to qualify for a new job as an accountant. You want to qualify as quickly as possible—ideally within a year. In this case, you’d be wise to focus your studies on a certificate in bookkeeping

    In the states pag sinabing diploma program pwede kasing accelarated eh…lalo na pag online programs…courses that normally take you 2 years or so to finish eh pwede tapusin in 1 year or belows’ time…. Diploma is just the “PAPEL” which is nowadays called “CERTIFICATE”… pag graduate mo sa college meron kang “DEGREE” tpos meron kang “PAPEL” na tawag eh “DIPLOMA”

  • alex

    may standard age ba and restriction when applying for a job in relation with aspiring chefs? pano kapag early 30′s na? may magha hire pa kaya sayo, pangalawang course ko na to kung sakali, ngayon ko lang na realize na ito pala talaga passion ko all this time.

  • chowder

    ui madami din culinary schools sa ibang bansa na nag oofer ng diploma in less than a year…:D

  • Kulinarista

    @ Broccoli

    as long as you have passion for the culinary industry then that would be your ticket to joining liga kulinarya

  • Gail

    @ALEX

    hi! walang pong age limit when it comes to applying job as a chef or cook.. may classmates ako age 38 and 44 na.

    I also asked the same thing sa school admin namin, wala daw po age bracket or age limit..

  • alex

    thanks Gail.

  • alex

    Gail ano ba school mo?

  • alex

    sa standing ba? pang ilang ang AHA kumpara sa ibang culinary schools?

  • CINDY

    hoy wag niyo nga puntiryahin ang Global. yan ang hirap sa pinoy.. once nakikita nilang successful ang isang tao or even the institution, naghahanap sila ng butas para siraan. grow up people! ang tatanda niyo na, childish acts parin kayo.

  • Joyce

    @Marco

    oo naman cympre, dun ako ngaral.. hehe. but seriously, maganda rin sa FGA, mura cya compared to other schools tpos magaling magturo si chef mats. Very cool instructor pa, and maganda ung kitchen ng FGA sobra.. kung makkikita mo lng compared to other schools.

  • Ravek

    @CINDY

    Wag mo nlng pansin ung mga comment na paninira kasi ganyan tlga every school meron tlga negatives so just ignore it =D ang importante namn ung positives at kung anu matutunan natin sa school na yun.

  • Gail

    @CINDY

    hello! really we’re classmates? =) what course kinuha mo? pastry na sa november 9 right? Hay! tapos na written midterm kanina. tom practical lab na!

  • Ravek

    @gail
    may written din pala sa global ??! mahirap ba ?

  • Marco

    @Joyce

    thanks for the reply, ill try to check out the schools na malpit skn d2 sa QC, especially FGA and global kc pasok sa budget ko. Narinig ko dati nglaban ung global ng football at FGA parang fund raising ata yun, because chef mats and chef rob daw are good friends… sounds fun to me. Sana mgkaroon ng parang league ng culinary schools in the future

  • Gail

    RAVEK

    yep. may mga quizzes din, midterm exam, midterm lab, final written and final lab. Madali lang naman pero dapat memorize mo lahat kasi sa identification, ikaw magbibigay ng descriptions . exams and quizzes sometimes 100 items :)

  • Gail

    @RAVEK

    kung ano napagaralan nyo for the week. Quizzes same thing din. identification din. pag midterm and finals, may essay din…

  • Ravek

    @Gail
    Ahhh kasi nung una kala ko puro practical lang hehehe…. =D

  • catt

    bat ganun? hindi ko nagets ung courses offered ng enderun?

  • sage

    @catt

    isa lang ang culinary-related course na offer ng enderun na long-term under the Alain Ducasse Formation (ADF) + Enderun culinary center. if you’re a high school grad, you will have to take their International Hospitality Management degree and major in culinary arts. kapag ganun gagawin mo, on your fourth year, you have the option to finish your schooling at kendall college in chicago and thus get an american diploma. FYI, kendall won the 2008 Academy of the Culinary Arts Cordon d’ Or – Gold Ribbon Cooking School of the Year. ndi siya pa-ekek lang na awards because the winners are chosen by members of the Culinary Academy Awards, which includes leaders of the culinary industry as well as past award honorees. kendall is known as the best culinary school in the midwest. maganda na may option ka na ganun. at least yung gastos mo sa pag-aaral sa ibang bansa like yung accomodation, allowance, etc, pang isang taon lang. hehe

    if you’re a bachelor’s degree grad, you can opt to undergo their ADF + Enderun culinary program which is two-years long. magkakaroon ka nung ADF + Enderun certificate in Culinary Arts.

    ang gusto ko sa enderun, meron silang Career Development and Industry Placement Office which will help find jobs for you once you graduate. marami silang partners here and abroad.

    pinag-iisipan ko nga kung mag ISCAHM ako or dito na lang. maganda din talaga kasi sa ISCAHM pero ayoko lang nung thought na hindi sila hands-on sa pagtulong ng paghanap ng job mo after or kapag gusto mo mag internship abroad. wala lang.

  • tracey

    n pansin ko ang palaging topic here ay ang sumusunod:

    CCA, MOST, ISCAHM, MIHCA, at GLOBAL

    wla masyadong say sa AICA, AHA, at CACS

    bakit kaya? sa CACS ako, ang ganda…ang diploma nila ay binigyan ng level 4ng tesda, highest sya s pinas…mahal pero cheaper kesa CCA.

    yong aristocrat din parang walang nagpaparamdam n student dito baka hindi ko lang napansin. Sana may maka share din sa school na’to.

  • tracey

    maganda yong ENDERUN, kaya lang ang haba na, pwde bang 1 year lang kunin mo, total may practicum n yon, tapos yong 2nd year sunod n lang…

  • dumplings

    Hi guys. I just want to share with you something relevant with First Gourmet Academy.

    I was a student in this school. The school looks great, has a wonderful view, has great equipment and has an average lecture room. The first few months were interesting but I realized sooner that the quality of the ingredients used in the kitchen became inferior. Often there were no available ingredients to make the recipes. The Chef would often inhale the food we prepared. The a/c would often breakdown in the kitchen and it was insane working with no ventilation. To make things worse, there were ANTS all over the place. The Swedish Chef who inhaled our food doesn’t really have any Corporate or Executive background. He basically just tells jokes. There was however an instructor that inspired our class very much. He was able to make our day worthwhile. He had so much to teach us but unfortunately he was let go for some reason. So for you guys that are considering this school, take a real close look before enrolling. It is not the view that make a culinary school. It is the quality of education and professionalism that does it.

  • Gail

    will start my STUDENT ASSISTANT tom! Professional kitchen, here i come!!!

  • catt

    @sage

    thanks man.. kaso im neither a high school student nor a bs degree holder.. in short if ever, transferee ako.

    @gail
    wow! student assistant! ^__^ anung gngawa ng student assistant? anu yun? may bayad? hehehe

  • catt

    onga pala… may tanong ako about sa internship abroad sa AHA.. anu yun? sagot ng skul ung lahat ng gastos or sagot mo parin?

    thanks in advance

  • Gail

    @catt

    nope! lahat sagot mo and ikaw lahat magaasikaso.

  • shoe

    may nakaka alam ba kung san store sa quezon city makakabili ng kitchen clogs? meron b s trinoma? megamall? robinson ortigas?

  • sage

    @ catt

    they do accept transferees at enderun. they also credit subjects that you have taken up and which are similar to their subjects. i know someone who transferred from ateneo to enderun.

    @shoe

    santis sells clogs. they have branches sa timog, astoria plaza in ortigas, corinthian hills club house and capitol hills drive in old balara.

  • shoe

    @ sage
    how much shoes dun?
    may alam k ba na mga 1000 to 1500 lng ang price?

  • CHINNIE

    For CLOGS try mo sa Birks or Crocs.

  • Marco

    @dumplings

    hmmm, balak ko p nmn mgenroll sa FGA, but when i saw the students they are really impressive. Magagaling sila i have to say, and the scool looks fresh and clean para mgka ants.. hehehe well, ganun tlg sa mga culinary schools, each school has an advantage and disadvantage, but things like those are not major problems. Intersting…. ill check up more on FGA because i really like the school..

  • Girlie

    Dear Dumplings – M.
    Writing bad things just because you are bitter does not make the school you worked at before bad. I am very happy with FGA and I know that the Swedish Chef that handles me is properly preparing me for a life as a professional.

  • JM

    @ Dumplings

    I totally Disagree with mr dumpling comments about First Gourmet Academy Iam a student who did short course at this school and experience the Quality of education they have . magaling na instructor si Chef at higit sa lahat he had motivated me more to pursue the culinary. Ive been to other short course to other school , and now im pursuing to be a Professional Chef and enrolled at First Gourmet Academy for their Diploma course.

  • Ravek

    @tracey
    HEHEHE … magnda CACS gs2 ko nga dun mag study ehh maybe after ko mag global mag aral din ako dun ng certificate course hehehe…

    @Gail
    anu ung “STUDENT ASSISTANT” un na ba ung OJT?

    @Shoe
    meron sa Crocs sa The Fort lang by order siya 2 weeks kasi wala na siya sa mga iba-ibang mall na crocs =D ang name nung shoes crocs bistro , try mo din check sa mga shoe salon dun kasi ako nakabili ng bistro sa MOA shoe salon =D
    2.5K lang

  • Pebbles

    @dumplings
    I understand what you are saying about Gourmet Academy. Time will tell if that school will make it. There are so many competitors around and it is only the best that will stand the test of time. No need to share what you know here, just share your opinions in person, it is much more effective – if you know what I mean.. =D

  • Minnie

    @dumplings –

    I took a short course some months back at that culinary school you just mentioned. It was like siguro 2 thousand pesos per session for about 8 sessions once a week. We expected to do the cooking ourselves but instead most of us just watched what the chef was doing. I was not really impressed with the food we ended up doing. I wouldn’t recommend it to either of my friends or family. I heard Global is quite good.

  • John

    @ Dumplings

    It is not that difficult to figure out that you that are writing this is the one that was fired from FGA. When writing like this the only one that looks bad are YOU. I am sure that the management of that academy had a very good reason to let you go. Grow up man!

  • kaye

    at this time,im so confused. im struggling searching for best schools for culinary arts? im just 1styr student. currently,i want to take up culinary workshop this coming sembreak that is reasonable for paying and worth it. should I go in global academy? and they have 8 sessions there. xD what do you guys think?

  • Gail

    @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.

  • Ravek

    @gail answer my question pls

  • Gail

    @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

    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.

    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.

  • Jonze

    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…

  • Johnson

    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.

  • Jonze

    Hi Nic x and everybody else.

  • John

    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.

  • Jonze

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

  • CHINNIE

    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.

  • RAVEK

    @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.

  • LEIGH

    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.

  • erika

    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 :)

  • sookie

    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.

  • joyce

    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?

  • Bentot

    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.

  • liz

    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.

  • anon

    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. :)

  • CHINNIE

    @ 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.

  • 3cLipzZ

    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..

  • samson

    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

  • mojojojo

    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. :)

  • RAVEK

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

  • CK

    @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…

  • Jon

    @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

  • samson

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

  • jiain

    hi evyone!!!.. juz wanna ask .. may branch ba ang global in cebu?.. anyone?

  • RAVEK

    @jiain
    wala puh, alabang , pasig, at QC lang puh

  • chefWanabee

    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

  • mojojojo

    @samson
    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?

  • cydnei

    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,

  • liz

    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.

  • porcupine

    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?

    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.

  • pilot

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

  • Saikaku

    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

  • CHINNIE

    PILOT

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

  • Chris_Bunch

    MIHCA magsaysay culinary institute is the best. SARAP maging MIHCA member. hehehehehe

  • pilot

    thanks chinnie. nakabili nako clogs. mas mukhang matibay ata birks than crocs eh. 10% discount sa francesco for selected culinary schools. :)

  • CHINNIE

    PILOT

    pareho naman ata. pero i can say matibay yung birks kasi matigas sya. anyways, nasa gumagamit naman yan. :)

    I started here last month. The facilities and especially the instructors are amazing.

  • anon

    @krixia

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

  • Migi

    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.

  • krixia

    @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 :(

    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!!! :)

  • jessicadim

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

  • danna

    @migi: thanks po .. :p

  • Cute

    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?

  • rads

    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$

  • Mina Francella

    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?

  • Saikaku

    @ 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!

  • Saikaku

    @ 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.

    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.

  • mojojojo

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

  • princess

  • marc

    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…..

  • Saikaku

    @ 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.,

  • jojo

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

  • jessicadim

    @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.

  • mondayblues

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

  • dina

    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.

  • virtual.surround

    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.

  • M

    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!

  • mishca

    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. :)

  • van

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

  • dina

    @ 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.

  • Arthur

    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?

  • LEIGH

    @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

  • Mina

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

    any jeepney in front of Starmall, going to Alabang will do. they will all pass by Global. Buses with ‘Alabang Town Center’ signs also pass there. Pwede din those that only say ‘BF Pilar’. Just go down sa last stop nila and walk. malapit nalang naman.

  • esther

    @ jessica and @jayjay
    AHA is a good culinary school. meron silang Associate in International Culinary Arts, college degree na yun. May kasama na rin syang OJT abroad.

    @ inah
    yes meron installment plan sa AHA. I have a friend na nag-aaral sa AHA. May pedeng full payment or installment. Inquire ka na lang.

  • van

    kasama na ba sa tuision fee ang ojt sa abroad ng aha ung 2 yrs course ?

  • franz

    pano mkakapunta from sm megamall going to global academy? ano sasakyan? any reply? tnx..

  • curious chef

    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

  • Saikaku

    @ 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.

  • esther

    @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.

  • van

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

  • esther

    @van
    welcome! good luck to you on your endeavor being a chef. I-consider mo AHA sa mga culinary schools na papasukan mo. :)

  • ronna

    just want to ask:)
    may installment pu ba sa global?
    kelan start ng classes ng global?
    tnx..

  • judith

    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?

  • rain

    @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.

    Hi guys from Global, especially form Alabang!
    Ask ko lang regarding sa clogs, sa Monday na kasi pasukan tapos wala pa akong clogs. 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!

  • yongyong

    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… :)

    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..

    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.

    @ 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.

  • Dencio

    @ 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.

  • Bryan Mills

    I’m new here, kindly share naman your opinions kung san may pnaka magandang culinary school na affordable? ano po pinag kaiba ng with diploma or certificates lang (advantages/disadvantages)???

  • Jumbo

    @ 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.

  • porak

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

  • Jumbo

    @ Porak
    The owner of SKD is the former president of MOST.Parehong pareho curriculum nila and ang tuition halos pareho. Pero ang MOST since 2004 bukas na, ang SKD one year palang ata. Track record, sa MOST ako.

  • The Inflight Chef of MOST

    All Culinary Arts school in the Philippines are good.Nothing less ,Nothing else…they teach how to cook, disciplined worker and as a Filipino with dignity.

  • Bryan Mills

    @ 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?

  • Jumbo

    @ 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.

  • Bryan Mills

    @ 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?

    Hi Guys,

  • Jann

    how much dun sa FEU makati?

  • Jumbo

    @ 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.

  • Jumbo

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

    @ 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….

  • Kellen

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

  • Jumbo

    @ 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?

    @ 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?

  • Chef J

    ina niyo lahat! ICF – FEU da best!

  • Carl’s Junior

    @ 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!

    Hello, im a culinary student, why in the world will i study under pacncake house? :P

  • Jumbo

    @ 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!

  • ^_^

    @ carl’s saan kba nag aaral?

  • Bryan Mills

    @Chef J:
    Very well said, using inaapropriate terms here in a forum. Are you from ICF?

  • Deathnote

    wag na lng kayo mag aksaya ng pera at panahon kung sa MOST(davao) kayo mag aaral.

  • Jumbo

    @ Deathnote
    why not MOST -davao? please expound.

    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!

  • Bobby Fillet

    @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.

  • Jumbo

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

  • L Lawliet

    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

  • Chefatm

    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.

    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?

  • Jumbo

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