Yong Sung Kim
Yong had an interest in cooking and food from a young age and his talents certainly made him stand out on the Advanced Professional Catering Diploma. He has since gone on to work at two Michelin-starred restaurants abroad!
“I started at Northampton College on the Level 2 Professional Chef Diploma and loved it. The teachers were absolutely brilliant and run the kitchens in such a professional way that you know what to expect when you eventually go out to work. It’s hard work in this industry but Northampton College prepared me for that. After the Level 2 I wanted to carry on with my qualifications so I progressed on to the Advanced Diploma which was even better in terms of what we learnt. We were taught about food preparation, practical cookery, pastry and larder work. Everything we needed to know.”
Yong had high hopes for his career and dreams of working abroad.
“I worked at Michelin-starred Il Rigoletto Restaurant near Parma in Italy – that was my first job after college. I was there for four months and gained invaluable knowledge of high-class cooking during that time. After that I got a job offer at Renaissance Doha City Centre Hotel in Qatar as a Commis Chef. It’s another high-class hotel and restaurant so it will be very hard work but I will be taking everything I learnt at Northampton College with me.”
