Alumna Claire Zhou | From Harvard to LCBNZ

To master the art of cooking and cultivate a deep appreciation for culinary skills is not only for aspiring chefs. The culinary journey enriches individuals from all walks of life; our students venture forth to become chefs, managers, writers, ambassadors, and myriad other roles. However, some embark on this path driven solely by their passion and love of cooking!

Claire travelled from the United States to New Zealand in pursuit of personal enrichment. Freshly graduated from Harvard and awaiting the commencement of an exciting career opportunity, she faced months of waiting. Rather than biding her time, Claire chose to hone her skills through our 10-week Basic Cuisine Certificate

Listen to Claire's testimonial as she shares how her cooking abilities and perception of cuisine changed forever in a transformative evolution within just 10 weeks.
