Training Abroad
  1. At Indian Culinary Academy I learnt to work with students from other cultures and backgrounds. That broadened my opinions and outlook and has really been useful in Bangalore where I have worked before! Here I met people from right around the world and, in a global industry like hospitality, this is a real advantage.

  • My dream of becoming a Chef has come true after joining the Academy. My chef trainers here taught me lot of cuisines and pastry skills. I would recommend Indian Culinary Academy to everyone who desire to become a chef.
