Culinary Programs

It is not necessary that every student is made to have high academics and succeed in their career. Many students can base their career based on their passion! We have identified and customized several programs to suit such students.

India is going through a sea change specially in terms of eating habits of the youth moving towards western culture. Further, the mobile applications are changing the way the food is ordered by the families on weekends or reserving the table at the fine dine restaurant has become common due to the huge demand. Further to this the junk food and multi outlet chain of branded food service providers have mushroomed in India is a fantastic growth story.

The student would fare much better in his Passion career than a career which is scientifically molded by professionals. The passion career can be in any type of stream and any student can pursue independent of the background such as:

  • Culinary Program for Foodie
  • Gastronomy programs in France for Bakers
  • Hospitality Management Program for fun loving people
  • Niche Career in Swiss Watch assembly for mechanical minds!
  • Wine taster for envious work profile

We are always on a lookout for such options and add this in this special section since we strongly believe what you will perform in your own selected field, you will never perform the same way in our suggested one!

The program “PROFESIONAL DIMPLOMA IN CULINARY ARTS” is designed for the students who have identified themselves as Foodie and would like to make their career in the Kitchen as a Chef of a fine dine restaurant in India or abroad. This program is focused on Italian food, bakery, pastries, wine and Gelato!

The program gives you all round knowledge and pass on the world renowned Italian techniques such as:

  • Raw materials selection

  • Secret Recipes of Italian food (Home and Restaurant types)
  • Fun with different type of bases for Italian Food
  • Kitchen management
  • Team work & leadership
  • Food Testing
  • Plate Decoration
  • Serving Etiquette


Many people feel that it is much easier than the degree oriented academic based learning programs. However, the fact is these programs are highly practical and lead to much higher scales of career since they are based on direct employment.
