"ICDE helped me transition from an enthusiast of cooking to a certified cooking professional equipped with the knowledge and techniques. It was a dream come true and one of the biggest leaps of my life. It's humbling to know that my culinary journey has just begun."

Joel Hernandez | chef working at Melbourne

"After taking up a bachelor’s degree, I really wanted to take up culinary arts. CCA suggested the ICDE program in which I was able to learn the basics in the kitchen from the knife skills, making different stocks, doughs and correct cooking temperatures. I was trained to work in the kitchen in a sophisticated manner and I was able to build up my tolerance for high pressure."

Melanie Bravo | chef at Nanka Restaurant

“ICDE provided me with the appropriate discipline in the kitchen. It made me confident in plating and satisfied my desire for further culinary knowledge. Our French Master Chefs not only served as instructors but more as mentors in molding our minds and preparing us for the stressful reality of restaurant cooking. ICDE truly enhanced the passion in my craft. I have started my catering business and with the ICDE tools and techniques, I am confident in delivering quality and savory dishes to my patrons.”
