The International Culinary Studio is marching to the beat of its own delicious drum, no cliché concepts here! In fact, this revolutionary innovation – an online culinary school and chef courses – has been touted as a world first.

The International Culinary Studio

From helping aspiring chefs to chase their dreams and fulfil their potential by becoming qualified in the foodie field, to helping those with experience further enhance their skills, the learning model has been designed in recognition of the fast-paced lives people are leading and the need for flexibility when it comes to upskilling.
It seems age really is just a number when it comes to capability with the International Culinary Studio blessing even the little ones in our midst with some impressive culinary prowess thanks to its Mini Chef and Mini Baking Programmes.
Every busy parent’s dream, these comprehensive courses educate children on all of the fundamentals, with a generous dose of finesse and fun thrown into the mix. Five lessons at four hours each run across five days.
The Mini Chef Baking Programme starts with an introductory module incorporating dressing for the kitchen, personal hygiene and safe food handling, before baking some delicious biscuits. Swiss rolls, pavlova/meringues, chocolate mousse and almond tuille, and cakes/cupcakes are also on the menu.
The Mini Chef Cooking Programme begins with the same introductory module and lessons include learning how to make pasta, parmesan twists, dessert and even offers an industrial kitchen tour through the studio’s virtual kitchen.
