Graduates of this short course program are looking to develop their confidence in the kitchen whether they are hobbyists, budding entrepreneurs or already working in a commercial kitchen.
“Back in 2010, I was looking for a culinary school because I really want to learn and want to work in prestigious hotels and cruise ships. But CCA is such an expensive academy and I cannot afford it. So I took it somewhere else and made it to my dream job. For me, CCA will always be a dream, and when I found out that they offer short courses including baking and pastry I said to myself, CCA and Av are meant to be. Thank you for giving chances to people like me who will never get tired of dreaming and pursuing it. It’s never too late to dream a new dream.”

“Ten years ago, my dream was to become a chef and I also have this particular school in mind where I wanted to take the course. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to pursue that dream. Instead, I became a nurse. Who would have thought after ten years while I was working, I would finish FBPAC and FCAC here at CCA Manila. The dream I already accepted that might not happen.
I enjoyed FBPAC class and I found my passion which taught me not to give up on your dreams. Chef JR, honed our skills and unleashed everyone's expertise. He trained us from manual to electric use, from ideal to reality set up, and face challenges that might happen.
We do not only learn how to bake or make breads and pastries, but we also learn from our classmates’ stories that inspire us and gain connections. Here in our class, every creation depicts our own personalities resulting in creative output.”

“It has always been in my bucket list to learn baking but being intimidated by the idea that in order to be good at it, one must be precise and dedicated. I never really got my head around pursuing it. But this year, I promised myself that I will do things that intimidates or scares me. I promised myself that I will learn new things and try to go out of my comfort zone. So, I enrolled and had the best time of my life. I felt like a kid again learning a new skill. It made me feel good that I was enriching myself with new knowledge and also gaining new friends in the process.”

“At the time I took the FBPAC at CCA, I was a fresh grad with a business course and had a passion for baking. I decided to enroll because I wanted to experience proper training in order to enhance my knowledge and skills and hopefully to be able to open a business of my own. With the help of my instructors and classmates, I can say that I am now more confident in the kitchen. As my takeaway, I did not just gain my experience, but also friends for life.”
