Culinary arts is a niche that can well be conquered by Filipinos because of their passion for food – food dominates every life event in a Filipino setting. As diverse is the geography of the Philippines, so are the methods of cooking. Dishes normally reflect resources and methods indigenous to the region. Hence, one dish, though known by the same name, will have different flavours in the various regions of the country.
It is in this background from which an aspiring Filipino chef comes from. It is also no wonder why they aspire to be so. Armed with the requisites to become a great chef – passion for food fortified by patience and perseverance, Filipinos can become great masters of culinary arts.
However, becoming a chef takes more than being passionate, let alone becoming great. One needs to learn the techniques and tools of the trade, from food preparation to presentation. A degree in culinary arts will provide you with the basic culinary arts skills, even some exposure in the internship program built into the course but for mastery you will need much more than that.
