Internship In the current scheme of career, internships play an integral role in moulding the budding chef to a thorough professional, under a disciplined set up. While the environment in the academy is very controlled and the students have access to the best of everything, the scenario in the hotels and restaurant is different. There is a pressure of volume, cost, performance, etc. which a student should know how to handle before she/ he works with a star hotel or opens her own bakery/ restaurant. We strongly recommend minimum three months of internship with leading restaurants, bakeries and 5 star hotels and to facilitate that, we have a tie up with some of the best brands for internship. Most of these internships are not paid but rich in experience with some of the hotels being Oberoi, Taj, ITC and bakeries like La Folie in Mumbai, Theos in Delhi, etc.
We support the students even after they have completed the course-from solving a problem with any of their recipe or discussion for R&D of a new recipe or help in designing the menu for their own restaurant or patisserie. Students who passed out a few years ago are still connected to us via various platforms.
