While the ACAC’s student intake numbers steadily grow, the theory classrooms and practical kitchen facilities on campus are becoming busier and busier.
As a reaction to the increasing student numbers, the Academy of Culinary Arts Cambodia is happy to inaugurate a new practical learning laboratory, a space dedicated to specialized cold preparations as well as workshops.
Chef Faculty Chung Hang who is in charge of the cold kitchen section elaborates:
“The ACAC is committed to continually enhancing culinary practical education in Phnom Penh and while students’ classes have steadily increased in numbers, the management and team at the Academy are looking forward to keeping up the good level of standards our Swiss accredited curriculum is made of”.
The additional space is a fully dedicated “Garde Manger” kitchen and will enable the students to continue practicing cold kitchen preparations such as salads, cold appetizers, pates, terrines, and cold canapes, enhancing their daily learning experiences and ever-building the fundamentals chefs must acquire before engaging on their future professional careers.
Changbora, who just returned from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, after completing her 6-month internship at the famous Jumeirah Al Naseem property and now continuing her semester in the role of an advanced student is excited to see the new laboratory:
“The new cold kitchen space is perfect. It’s big, bright, and equipped with all needed in a professional and productive food preparation laboratory. Being an ACAC student, I can see the efforts of the entire team place in adding educational value and consistently improving their services and facilities, providing us with the best learning experience possible”.
