We're launching our Certified Culinary Trainer Program for Chefs in Romania

Our kick-off event for the program took place on the 16th of November, with all participating chefs joining in online. It was led with enthusiasm by our Head Culinary Excellence, Patrick Diethelm. The chefs shared their stories during the kick off, and aligned on a common goal: acquiring valuable teaching skills and culinary knowledge, that they will be able to pass on to the next generation of chefs. All of our future Culinary Trainers agree: a strong culinary foundation is essential.

Our certified Culinary Trainer program is designed to empower culinary excellence, and to transform experienced chefs into Swiss-industry certified Culinary Trainers. After completing the program, they will be equipped with the expertise needed to shape the next generation of culinary professionals, not only in Romania but across Eastern Europe.

Revolutionizing education through digital courses

The program marks a significant step forward in the local culinary-education landscape. We are at the forefront of revolutionizing professional education by digitizing vocational training—vocational education being a sector that has not yet undergone digital transformation. Our Swiss-quality professional education—based on the Swiss model, which is renowned for its methodology and depth—will be accessible for the first time to culinary professionals in Romania, a move which has been building since our company received positive outcomes of similar implementation models in Asia, Brazil and Switzerland.

By launching our professional education in Romania, we are committed to creating impact for the country itself, across multiple dimensions. The program aims to contribute to Romania's economic growth, helping to create a highly skilled and dynamic workforce. By equipping professionals with advanced culinary knowledge and fundamental teaching skills, we are supporting the hospitality industry and it's goal to elevate the quality of its workforce and drive economic prosperity.

Culinary education is just the beginning for Romania. In the HoReCa (hotel / restaurant / catering) industry, we will soon launch programs in Bakery, Confectionery and Pastry, in addition to Housekeeping, Hotel-Communication and Restaurant Service—already underway in other countries.

Innovation supported by industry representatives  

Acknowledging the significance of this initiative, the Asociația Breasla Bucătarilor din Cluj—an association committed to the advancement of culinary professionals and the promotion of the gastronomic sector and gastronomic education in Romania—and the Kolping society—a philanthropic organization that supports initiatives aimed at empowering individuals through education and skill development—are proud co-sponsors of the training. Their joint vision is to cultivate a team of culinary professionals capable of shining in the Romanian market, positioning the country as a central hub for culinary education across Eastern Europe.
