Mastering the culinary arts at ICI Tirupati can give your career some spice
The campus, teaching and the facilities will bowl you over as you begin your journey towards some fantastic cooking
It requires countless hours of hard work and training in an institution to become a chef. One of the more prominent institutions in the field is the Indian Culinary Institute, based in Tirupati.
Their professors will guide you through recipe creation, ingredients acquisition and preparation — ensuring you feel confident as you embark on your culinary journey. The tasks of a chef are vivid and varied depending on the type of food served and where they work.
There are many chefs in a hotel's kitchen. There is the Head Chef, also known as the Master Chef, Executive Chef or Chef De Cuisine. Then there are Sous Chefs who implement the Head Chef’s directions and are second in command of the Kitchen, a Chef De Partie, who supervises a particular area or station within the kitchen. A culinary degree from a reputed institution can quickly earn positions with greater responsibilities in the industry.
