It was an honor for me to learn from the teachers of Masterclass. It was an enriching experience. We all have been cooking at home but Masterclass helped me learn a myriad of cooking tricks, presentation and food styling techniques. It made cooking a lot more intriguing and fun.

After completing my intermediate studies, I’ve decided to do something interesting & creative. As I’ve always been interested in food and cooking, so deciding to study Culinary Arts was a straightforward decision for me & that’s why I took admission in Masterclass Pakistan. I felt learning in a more well structured environment might be best. I’ve visited many hospitality schools in Karachi but then I chose this place because of the well maintained environment.
