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.
