It is never too late to pursue your dreams. While some people are lucky enough to know what they want and to be able to go after it while they are still young, others discover their dreams later in life. Whichever the case is, time is never an issue. There is no such thing as the right age to start your career or the right age to become successful. Success comes to people in different times. The real challenge is being ready to take the first step once you have decided on your goals.

Here in First Gourmet Academy, we welcome everyone from different walks of life. We only have one requirement, and that is the passion for cooking. We encourage people to pursue their dreams of becoming a chef even if it is completely different from the career that they have already chosen, or even if they only discovered their love for the culinary arts as they grew older. Like we have said, it is never too late. We deeply admire those who take the first step towards their dream once they have discovered it.
