What Our Students Say

I had a dream to be happy.  To be a pastry chef and cake decorator; it is happiness in a bottle for me.  Thanks to the FBI Chef School, today I drink from that bottle every day as a pastry chef at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia, USA, enjoying the ride.

After graduating from the FBI as Best Pastry student, in July 2018 I received a call from a recruitment officer of the Al Rayyan Hotel Curio Collection by Hilton  in Doha, Qatar to join them as a demi chef de partie.   Since my graduation I’ve worked under more executive and pastry chefs and have seen more places that I ever could have hoped for.
