I’m really passionate about cooking and being a chef, so that is why I chose this course. I started working part-time in a kitchen when I was at school, so I knew this was what I wanted to do. I like getting the chance to learn in a calm environment and covering all the basics you need for the industry and the in-house restaurant at College replicates the real working environment.
