I feel the culinary arts program creates a very strong foundation to be a successful chef by being exposed to a range of topics. The topics offered in the Vels School of hotel management covers both conventional and modern that gives us very good knowledge and strong practical skills in order to be equipped and excel in the culinary field. Not only we will be able to see how things worked in the past but the chef here actually opens our eyes to show us what would be the future trends. After my course I went out and experienced the real world. I rose to the top very quickly as I had everything I needed to get the position. I am now the executive chef at Trance Green Fields – Restaurant & Convention Centre, at Hyderabad, Telangana.
