Sampson Low Chee Yeong

Owner of 3 Restaurants & Celebrity Chef

Graduated Year 2010

I am glad to be a Cilantro’s student. During my time as a student I learnt lots of hands on culinary skills.

When I graduated I had no difficulties in  the hotel kitchen. If I were given a  chance to choose, I will choose Cilantro again. My school always helped me in my career.

Jeffrey Tai Kah Way

Owner & Celebrity Chef at Twenty5 Restaurant

Graduated Year 2007

I feel that Cilantro creates a very strong foundation to be a successful chef by teaching different skills and practical. They taught us very good basic and strong skills in order to understand culinary arts.

Woo Jie Yin

Owner at De A Mano

Graduated Year 2015

I am honoured to be part of Cilantro Culinary Academy. Here I met experienced chef instructors. They were  willing to share their experiences to the  students without holding anything back.

All the things that I learnt in this  academy enabled me to gain not only the skills but also the knowledge in  pastry.

So Char Ming

Owner at De A Mano

Graduated Year 2015

It is an honour to be a student at Cilantro because they emphasize on vocational skills training in the kitchen.

As the old saying goes practice makes perfect! In here, we spend most of our time practicing our skills and I have met  experienced chef instructors who shared their knowledge and experience with us selflessly.

Kevin Ng Yong Xing

Head Chef at Communal Table by gēn

Graduated Year 2013

After I graduated from Cilantro Culinary Academy I went to the U.S. Virgin  Islands, Dubai, and the Maldives to  further my culinary training. Currently I am back in Malaysia, working at Communal Table by gēn in Penang.

The best part of being a chef is that I had the opportunity to work in different countries and learn their cuisine & culture. I also got to know people from  around the world.

To all the newcomers aspiring to enter this industry, don’t be afraid of going beyond your comfort zone. Be open minded and learn from different chefs.

Tan Dyi Uei

Sous Chef at Nathalie’s Gourmet Studio

Graduated Year 2012

I started my career in Hilton Kuala Lumpur where I began my On-Job Training, and I got the job right after. Now I am a sous chef in Nathalie’s Gourmet Studio, specializing in French fusion fine dining and catering.

Cilantro Culinary Academy is a good  place to start pursuing your dream. The knowledgeable chef instructors can  teach you to master your fundamental skills and knowledge in culinary arts. Here, I would like to take the chance to say thank you to my chef instructors  Chef Alan and Chef Loke.

Every day presents a new challenge, pushing us to find new ideas to get the  job done, which is an important skill to  have as a chef.

Khoo Jian Wei

Head Chef & Co-Owner at Iggo Cafe

Graduated Year 2009

I studied at Cilantro Culinary Academy for 2 years and graduated in 2009.  Cilantro help me built the foundation for my career. Feels great to be part of Cilantry Culinary Academy!

As head chef at Iggo, I always try to incorporate fresh local ingredients into our dishes and present them with a western twist. I would like to introduce more western dishes to the local area.

Gabee Lim

Cake Artist, & Instructor at Gbase Patisserie

Graduated Year 2016

My career in this industry began after I signed up for an Instagram for Business account to showcase my works. Aside from baking customized cakes, I also host workshops to teach cake decoration techniques.

The On-Job Training programme helped me a lot to kick start my career. When I was undergoing my training in Sunway  Resort Hotel & Spa, I learnt lots of baking  techniques and management skills.

In the future, I hope to  host more baking  workshops and continue to learn newer  cake decorating techniques.
