I always have a passion to cook and bake something nice for my family. At Empyrean, I fully explore this interest in a more professional level and discovered my dream to purse a culinary career. All my teachers are friendly, approachable and highly skilled. They have opened my eyes to an interesting field of culinary arts and have always been so patient in answering all my questions. I would like to give special thank you to Chef Shubham and Chef Francesca. I would definitely recommend Empyrean.
