Chef Eric Long
Hi all , my name is Charmaine Clare De Almeida . I have been so fond of culinary since I was a little girl especially baking cakes with my mom and grandmother , I have never though that I would pursue my profession as a chef. CAC Academy of Chefs is where I began my training , I took up the Certificate of Pastry and Bakery course. To give you my standpoint, the course I took is not a piece of cake being scared of the Chefs , not being late to class by not oversleeping, attentiveness by not falling asleep in class through the long lectures , having a good discipline and respect for others . To be a patisserie chef it takes one to travel a long journey of perseverance to achieve his or her dream .“Phew” it was a little stressful but nevertheless it made me the person I am today.

My quote “ “I like CAC because the 1 year program is suitable to me and after that I can further my studies”
