The Apprentice Program conducted by Hilton Colombo is the best way to groom yourself to become a Chef. I joined Hilton in November 2008 as an Apprentice and currently I am in the final year of the program.
I realized my talent for cooking when I was studying Home Management at School for Life. I wanted to master my skills under a global brand and joining Hilton was a dream come true.
The Apprentice program gives the opportunity to work as well as learn every aspect of cooking. I managed to win the Internal Apprentice Competition held at Hilton Colombo and got selected for the 14th Culinary Art Competition.
Winning the Best Apprentice award at my first attempt is indeed a dream come true. I also carried away the Best Apprentice Hot Cooking Live title. Further, I won Gold for Apprentice Dessert Live category.
I am currently focusing on finishing the Apprentice program with flying colours and my target is to win the Best Chef title at the next Culinary Art Competition.
Executive Chef Rohan Fernadopulle, Chef Manawadu (Head of Apprentice Batch), Chef Sanjeewa, Chef Buddhika Samarasekara, Chef Asoka and my fellow colleagues in the Apprentice Batch supported me immensely to win this title. The experience I gain from Hilton Colombo is distinctive and I am proud to work under the Masters of Culinary Arts.
