Dear Prospective & Aspiring Chef…

I would first of all like to thank you for taking the first step into the challenging and incredibly rewarding world of Culinary creativity and Gastronomia…

This career choice has obviously piqued your interest and now you are looking into your options of becoming a Chef. If you are dedicated, have loads of passion and extreme interest in cooking, then the Programme in Culinary Arts & Patisserie Studies is the key ingredient that will help transform you into a skilful Chef.

You will learn over time that cooking is not only about following recipes, it’s an artform…one where you get to eat & enjoy the final product.

My final word of advice would be to learn as much as possible, follow local & international Culinary trends, experiment and don’t be afraid to combine flavours & textures.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Hedgehog’s Nest Culinary Institute where we “Make your Culinary dream….a reality”
