I’ve heard a lot of good feedbacks and recommendations for ICAAC in Cebu. Friends of friends or relatives of friends all have good things to say about this school. limited number of students and really excellent facilities and they are in a newly constructed building designed to be a culinary school. The chefs are also good and they know you daw from the first day of classes until you graduate. They are also very strict and instill discipline and their Diplomas are from United Kingdom. Tuition fee also very competetive if not the lowest among the schools in Cebu for international diploma.

visited ICAAC and they have better facilities than any school in Cebu including ISCAHM. ISCAHM is just newer but still ICAAC has more impressive facilities. My cousin is a graduate here and is now working for cruise ship and her classmates are in the US. Hopefully, I’ll be studying here soon.

International Culinary Arts Academy Cebu is quite good! Always good and positive feedbacks from everyone and they are now in their own building designed to be a culinary arts school. Tuition fees are very competitive if not lower than most schools such as PSCA, AICA or ISCAHM Cebu. Their two year programme also already includes the Pastry Module unlike other schools where you have to pay differently to study culinary arts or pastry & baking. When you graduate you get a British Diploma from UK which is recognized around the world especially in Europe. Have a friend who graduate in ICAAC and now working for one of the top resorts in the world in the USA.

In Cebu I noticed the Philippine School of Culinary Arts

Has anybody got any info on how this school ranks?

Besides the International Culinary Arts Academy Cebu

What other Culinary Arts Schools are there in Cebu City? I see that University of Cebu & University of San Carlos have Culinary Arts programs, but I can not seem to find any real information about them on the web. Anybody got any input on these programs, or others in Cebu City?

I appreciate any feedback. Thanks

CCA, Manila has been sending waves and waves of students in different parts of the world, and most of them have already been employed as Chefs as soon as they finish their apprenticeship.

They take culinary education to the next level and in a holistic way.
