Hong Kong Culinary Academy
Hong Kong Culinary Academy offers two programs culinary students can earn a degree in. The first is an Advanced Diploma in Hotel Culinary Management. This three-year degree is geared toward younger students looking to first enter the industry. Some classes taught for this degree include Knife Skills, Intro to Baking, Gastronomy, and Kitchen Management. Once students have successfully graduated from this program they can move on to the academy’s Bachelor of Arts in Professional Culinary Arts. This degree lasts two years and will build on students’ previous culinary knowledge as well as move on to topics like communication in the kitchen, food cost control, culture and gastronomy, and hospitality marketing. Tuition for both these degrees is $18,000 and a few prerequisites are required before being admitted into a program, such as having English proficiency and passing an admission interview. For those interested in learning more about the culinary arts but don’t want to spend time on a degree, this academy offers small daily courses that will teach you how to make bread and European desserts.
