As the name suggests, Culinary arts is more of an art instead of a science or profession. It is the hidden talent within the individual which gets a flair with the knowledge of advanced techniques and process. The candidates definitely need to have the skill set to become a successful Chef.

- Innovation in preparatory process and Creativity in presentation
- Sense of taste and smell
- Good stamina and people management skills
