Work at VCC
Vancouver Community College is home to the largest culinary school in Western Canada. Award-wining chef-instructors train students in all aspects of culinary creations in VCC's student-run restaurants. VCC culinary arts graduates are sought after by the restaurant and hospitality industry locally and internationally and win major competitions, in Canada and abroad.
VCC has truly formed my passion into something more than what I thought it could be. Both the culinary and pastry arts programs are taught by skilled instructors who guided me towards my goals and ambitions. I was also privileged enough to represent Canada on an international scale. By competing with an amazing team of fellow students and alumni from VCC I was also able to further my learning and my social network. I would surely recommend it to anyone willing to reach their dreams.

Learning in a simulated commercial Asian kitchen has provided real life experience. Chef Tsang’s exuberant personality has guided us to work cohesively in a team environment so we can create a variety of dishes in an efficient, economical and safe manner to the public. It has been a joy to go to school each day to improve my knowledge and confidence in preparing these different types of cuisines. I strongly recommend this program to novice cooks or seasoned chefs.

The passion and knowledge of Chef Barry's commitment to quality and endless patience made this experience very rewarding. I learned the principles of Chinese Cuisine, how to use spices and ingredients from different Asian countries and how to control the heat of cooking professionally with a wok. After only five months program I was able to toss the wok and to create the highly desired “wok-hay” flavour.
