Professional Academy for Culinary Education is your ticket to Culinary Entrepreneurship.

Last April 22, 2015 I went to a tour of Professional Academy for Culinary Education (PACE) in Parañaque City  and have learned more about its flexible programs, admission process, and culinary entrepreneurship.

The Open House included a discussion on how this learning institution trains culinary professionals through effective instruction theory, practice and actual immersion in the food industry plus a culinary demonstration.

Chef Menoy Gimenez
Professional Academy for Culinary Education (PACE) was conceptualized in 2010 with the vision of building an institution for culinary training and culinary entrepreneurship in the east area of Metro Manila. Armed with a noble vision, Chef Lowell Cauilan, Chef Catherine Ong, and Ms. Fiona Flores, a caterer and entrepreneur teamed up to establish PACE facilities in Antipolo come July 2012.

Since then PACE has expanded in the South with a branch in Parañaque City, which also houses its own diner, Tito Chef Restaurant and All Things Culinary. Through actual immersion in the food industry, PACE students acquire the necessary skills and develop the discipline professionals need to succeed in the culinary field. Culinary aspirants get relevant entrepreneurial education, thorough hands-on training and practical learning experiences at Tito Chef Restaurant.

Start a Culinary Career

Have you ever considered a career in culinary arts? Are you one of those who wanted to become a chef, but took the other road for some reason instead? If your desire of being a chef or a restaurant owner still burns deep inside, let PACE train and guide you towards a quality career by getting the right education.

PACE's Culinary Arts Diploma is a modular, competency-based program that trains students on the fundamentals of professional cooking, anchored on the techniques, methods and practices of the classical French. The bulk of the program in on Kitchen Drills, wherein students will hone their skills. Lectures and actual exposure to the different facets of a chef’s workplace such as herb garden and market trips will also complement their kitchen training. In addition, all students will have a chance to select one Professional Development track.

The Culinary Arts Diploma program has the equivalency of Commercial Cooking NC II under TESDA’s TVET Program.
