    After earning a Diploma in Hotel Management from Les Roches, Switzerland and a Diploma in Culinary Arts from the famous Le Cordon Bleu of Paris, Mr. Jeremy Young went on to work in parts of Europe and then at Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Beach Resort & Spa in Orlando, USA, before settling back home in Cebu. Realising a need and demand for a professional culinary institution in the south of the Philippines, the International Culinary Arts Academy Cebu or ICAAC was founded in 2002 and is the first professional culinary arts school in Cebu. Originally located at the south end of P. Del Rosario Extension Streets, in the downtown area, the academy has transferred and moved to its own property at Don Gervacio Quijada Street, Guadalupe, Cebu City and is easily accessible by all forms of transportation.

    The academy is managed by internationally educated and trained professionals and is currently the only culinary educational institution in the Philippines that can offer an internationally recognized IVQ or international vocational qualifications from the International City & Guilds of London Institute in the United Kingdom. “Having been educated in Europe, we felt that we also needed to offer and give our students a qualification that would be highly recognized in more than one hundred countries worldwide. Unlike other culinary schools, our graduates receive certificates and diplomas which are printed and issued directly from the United Kingdom, says, Jeremy Young, Dean of ICAAC”
