Student Testimonials

“Prior to leaving my knowledge on cooking was extremely minimal. Like frozen dinner minimal. Through the amazing culinary examples and a group project, I learned so much. Now I love to cook and try to remake some of the dishes from abroad. My biggest takeaway was learning how to travel. How to deal with culture shock, learning transportation as well as booking flights. There are many other skills I acquired but these are a few. It has given me the confidence to travel on my own.”
