“I wanted to learn as much as I can as my hope and dream is to own a shop one day. Academy’s culinary course widened my knowledge about the food industry, and it was a great opportunity to learn more about the dishes from my own culture."

Sulastri is a single mum who comes from a long line of cooks and bakers from her family. Having already attained a WSQ Higher Certificate in pastry and baking, she was excited to receive a sponsorship to attend HCSA Culinary Academy to explore the difference between pastry and culinary arts!

She is grateful for the shared happiness and sadness with her classmates, the chefs, and mentors in her six weeks with the academy. It was a good experience that provided her a glimpse of how working in the real culinary world is like!
