The story of the Center for Culinary Arts (CCA Manila) began with a vision to elevate the quality of culinary education in the country, and in the process, elevate Filipino cuisine, talent, and ingenuity on the world stage. Since it opened its doors more than 25 years ago, it is constantly innovating, adapting to the times, setting trends, and continuously producing the best culinarians and chef-preneurs.
This year, CCA Manila is proud to announce that it is opening its newest campus located in one of the prime business districts in Metro Manila, Bonifacio Global City (BGC).
As CCA Manila is home to hundreds of Filipino chefs, culinarians, and entrepreneurs, whose culinary dreams became a reality with the school’s rigorous, hands-on, and world-class curriculum, new students will benefit from this new BGC campus, featuring individual kitchen stations fitted with top kitchen and appliance brands.
“We are very excited to welcome students to our new campus here in BGC – the center of business, enterprises, and of course, leisure. Part of this dynamic district will be CCA Manila, which will give passionate individuals who have a dream to become a professional chef, baker, or even an all-around ‘home cook’ the chance to truly learn from the best chef instructors and industry-leading curriculum,” said Chef Philip John Golding, Culinary Director of CCA Manila.
CCA Manila shapes its curriculum to meet the demand of real-world kitchens whether these may be in hotels, resorts, restaurants, cruise ships, commissaries, etc. Students will be able not only to prepare food, but also create innovative dishes, master different techniques, operate the kitchen effectively, learn how to do sustainable sourcing, and of course, feel pride in contributing to elevate Filipino cuisine.
“CCA Manila aims to remain competitive in the culinary education field. Aside from individual kitchen stations, each student will be provided with access to online tools and references, plus quality ingredients and mentorship,” added Chef Philip.
Culinary education is not for the faint of heart, but it’s all worth it if you’re pursuing your passion for cooking. There will be long hours in the kitchen, intensive instructions, and culinary challenges, but CCA Manila will be there to equip you with the necessary skills to conquer the culinary foodscape and at the same time, help give you a deeper appreciation for food as culture, art, and health.
For those looking to become a professional chef, planning to open a food-related enterprise, even just to pursue cooking as a serious weekend hobby – or you just want a break from all the stress of office work – CCA Manila’s central location in BGC should be your next destination. Let CCA Manila help you fulfill your culinary dreams!
