The workshop, the students of which started to find a place in the industry in a short time, moved in a larger building in Maslak-Istanbul in 2012 and started to award official certificate under the body of Ministry of National Education of the Republic of Turkey. The academy, which provides training in key subjects such as Professional Cookery, Professional Pastry&Baking, and Catering Management, has gained various sponsor brands such as Metro Cash&Carry, Diversey, and Oztiryakiler since its foundation.
