Learn about the culinary wonders of the world

(Manila, Philippines, April 15, 2014) — Globalization has delivered international cuisine right in our backyards. Nowadays, you don’t have to cross seas to experience authentic Japanese, Italian or French food. And with a cooking education from Global Academy, you won’t have to step out of your home to have them either.

Transforming palates and culturing students in a variety of tastes, Global Academy’s team of internationally trained chefs deliver world-class standards to culinary education.

“Our chefs impress students with an understanding of traditional methods in more than 10 international cuisines,” said Global Academy co-founder, president and CFO Chef Benny Ledesma, Jr.

These cuisines include Japanese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Greek, Italian, American, Korean, Thai, Middle Eastern, Southeast Asian, and Filipino. Students learn how to prepare sushi, dimsum, terrines, tapas, and much more—all these from scratch.

“We’re very much about equipping our students with the highest standards,” said Ledesma, Jr. “Last year, our students took home the only gold for the Young Chefs Team Challenge at the Philippine Culinary Cup with modern Japanese-inspired dishes.” Named overall champion of the cup, Global Academy received 19 medals from that competition.

But Global Academy’s education is not limited to traditional methods. The top-notch culinary school’s courses makes sure that the students are well-rounded by including modern cooking techniques such as sous vide, a precision temperature cooking method; the use of hydrocolloids as thickening and gelling agents; the scientific evaluation of cooking methods; and taste and texture development.

International cuisines and modern techniques are taught in Diploma in Fundamental & Modern Professional Culinary Arts and the Superior Diploma courses. Global Academy is the first to offer these courses at an affordable price. It has branches in Pasig, Quezon City, Las Piñas and Makati. For more information, visit
