chocolate visit

Benns Ethicoa Chocolate Factory Visit

Getting to know the source of our cooking ingredients is an integral part of our learning curve in culinary arts. Malaysia has suitable climate for cacao planting and we did not miss the opportunity to organise a trip to a cacao factory and to also see an actual cacao tree.  

Our Diplôme de Cuisine, Diplôme de Pâtisserie and Diplôme de Boulangerie students gained a lot of insights in the process of making various grades of chocolate out of the raw cacao beans. They also get to taste the end products like chocolate truffles and bon bons made by the manufacturer during their visit to the chocolate factory.

dining in the dark

Food Sensory Experience-
Dining in the Dark Restaurant

Dine in the Dark restaurants which first started in Switzerland had now spread to many countries as a dining experience which evokes our senses. Our Chefs deemed that this is a “must have” for our students’ food sensory experience.

Dine in the dark was established with the intention of bringing food appreciation to a higher level, this unique approach is mind-blowing; dining without one’s sight. It is an experience where one “looks” at the world through the senses of taste, sound, smell and touch as they become more acute in darkness.

podcast chapter 4

E-commerce Provide Lifeline
For Homebaker (Podcast)

The Worldwide pandemic over the last 2 years had sped up the digital world in communication due to lockdowns to protect us from the spread of the contagious Covid Virus. Many who had lost their jobs had turned to home businesses to survive. Our Alumni who may have lost their jobs in hotels and cafes had turned to home baking business to continue practising their skills learned from Diplôme de Pâtisserie and Diplôme de Boulangerie to sell their products online.

They are then able to expose their products by introducing them through social media channels such as Instagram, Facebook, twitter and other communication channels like WhatsApp, telegram etc. The trend has continued since.

Do listen to our Podcast to find out more how e-commerce can be used effectively to promote products and business for home bakers.
