By participating in this programme, you will improve your culinary skills, gain a deeper understanding of food and workplace safety principles, learn how to create various desserts and dishes from different cultures around the world, and be better prepared for culinary college. One aspect of the online learning approach that I particularly enjoyed was the flexibility it provided. I was able to complete assignments at home and even during my lunch breaks at work because the class was conducted online.This programme has pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone and has greatly enhanced my bread and pastry making skills. Throughout the programme, I have learned some important lessons, such as the fact that not everything will always go according to plan and the significance of having all the necessary tools to successfully prepare a dish. I have also learned that it is essential to remain calm and persistent even when things go wrong. Through this programme, I have grown more confident in my abilities asa cook as it has encouraged me to try new things and overcome my fears.
