Professional Chef



2 years and 6 months

If going to IMI, Switzerland for the most prestigious degree in professional chef – RM200K

Starting June 9th. Orientation week starts 4th and 5th June

I also want to go!!!!! But they say it is a very tough and heavy job to be a chef. We had gone on a tour in the kitchen in KDU. Impressive.

Is this a future Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay in the making? LOL. All moms are very ambitious. So, ignore me.

Good luck to #1, enjoy your college life! Have fun and don’t burn my kitchen down in future.

  1. congratulation to number one son, for joining the F&B line especially as a cook, it wont be a bed of rose, it a hard life, long hours 10 to 16 hours a day if you want to suceed, now remember all the impresive equiptment in school, you may not use them in working life, bye A F&B Guy

  2. First off the bat, congrats to your # 1 son embarking on his new career. Cheffing isn’t a glamorous job to be begin with, unlike those portrayed by Mr Oliver, Mr Ramsay and the likes. It takes slogging in the classes, slogging at internships, slogging and endless slogging. Unless of course along the way, # 1 son can be some Michellin-starred chef’s protege, then good; otherwise he’ll join one of us. 😆

    Just tell # 1 son to persevere and he’ll get through. Also research a lot. After he finish his Diploma with KDU, he might want to look at his options to further his culinary skills in France rather than Switzerland. Another subcategory he can try is doing Pastry (it pays more than normal chef).

  3. My bro did professional chef in KDU about 3 years ago. He enjoyed it, though he never cooked for us before… 🙁
    All the best to #1. It’s gonna be tough, but it is also one of the best industries to be in.

  4. Rasa macam baru saja u hantar dia pegi College General. Tak lama lagi dah terbang dari sarang burung… Fly birdie fly, Fly like an Eagle.

  6. Hi, Lilian…my son H is in the same boat as yr son#1…but he is finishing his diploma this July. It is fun and some rough time for him during his 4 months industrial training… and he only pick up much skills and interest during his training in a 6 star hotel. All the best to yr son.

  7. My advice to all those who has children taking up culinary arts, after they graduate; try to get them to join one of the various manpower outsourcing companies to the Oil & Gas industries – seriously make money, that one. Even better if they know sendiri punya cuisine or Asian food.

    This particular industry (O&G), Filipinos are tops at Western, Thai in theirs, Malaysian & Indonesians have similar tastes. Bakers are in a class of their own. Plus 1 of our countries main exports is manpower. Our people need to be fed all over the world.
