The Best Culinary Schools in Singapore


The island of Singapore has been influenced by many cultures, both Eastern and Western. These influences, along with the country's love for cooking, make Singapore an ideal location for culinary schools. A few schools in particular offer students an excellent education in the culinary arts.

Shermay's Cooking School

  • Shermay's Cooking School was founded by award-winning cookbook author Shermay Lee in 2003. Although she was trained at the world famous Le Cordon Bleu, Lee was intent on keeping her school's focus on traditional Singaporean cuisine. Shermay's has a full-time staff of chefs but also provides a rotating cast of guest chefs, most of whom have 10 or more years of professional experience. Many have cooked in Michelin-rated three star restaurants. The school is constantly adding new workshops and covers an array of dishes, from puff pastries to one-pot French meals. Shermay's offers one- or two-year memberships to the school.

At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy

  • The At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy was established in 2001 as an Asian culinary school, but quickly expanded to cover both Eastern and Western cuisines. The school offers full diplomas in the culinary arts. The mission of At-Sunrice is to get new chefs into the field as quickly as possible. This is evident in the school's "Study & Work" program, in which current students are placed in top hotels and restaurants as a part of their education. As recently as 2010, two students from At-Sunrice were presented with the "Apprentice of the Year" award in their respected fields (Pastry and Culinary).

Palate Sensations Cooking School

  • Palate Sensations Cooking School provides a wide range of courses for beginners and advanced students. The school was chosen by Singapore Parties as having the "Best Venue" of 2009. It is located in the Black & White Colonial Building at the Wessex Estate, which provides a state-of-the-art open kitchen with room enough to comfortably fit 25 students at a time. The cooking workshops are split evenly between Eastern and Western cuisines, and most staff chefs have their own specialties, from southern Italian cuisine to northern Indian cuisine. There's even a chef for macrobiotic diet cooking. Classes are listed and can be booked online.

Creative Culinaire

  • Creative Culinaire teaches both local and foreign students the art of cooking and baking, including an entire course devoted to bread-making. The head chef and chief instructor is Judy Koh, who has worked in hotels and restaurants throughout Southeast Asia. Creative Culinaire also offers its own "Caffe Pralet," where student chefs provide food for paying customers. Each class at the school is usually spread out over three or four lessons and can be registered for online.
