As a PC, you have the freedom to design your own menu and cook in different environments. Partially funded by SkillsFuture Singapore, the course is taught by a team of six global chefs. In just six classes, you will be equipped with the tools and knowledge to operate your own PC business. Learn the culinary essentials: from hygiene standards and professional knife-handling techniques, to the understanding of complex spice blends, through to the foundation of soups, stocks and sauces.
