Taught by experts from Asia, the Asian cuisine programme enables participants to discover and understand the knowhow of four East-Asian countries: China, Korea, Thailand, and Japan. These four training programmes examine history, ingredients, and professional working methods, providing an understanding of the specific characteristics of each country.

During these training programmes, students will be introduced to techniques and traditions dating back thousands of years, make dishes from each of the cuisines studied in the programme, and innovate by creating dishes which are characteristic of each country.

Students can either register for all four training programmes at a preferential rate, or for an individual six-week training programme in the cuisine of the country of their choice.
