AICA offers three programmes for all students and professionals in Malaysia, which include professional certificates in the preparation and serving of Sichuan cuisine, Cantonese cuisine and one in Malaysian Heritage cuisine.
Regarded as the most popular cuisine in China, Sichuan food is known for its hot and spicy flavour – and with AICA’s new course, students will be able to perfect some of the most well-known dishes like the rich and flavourful hot and sour soup.
