Royal Academy of Culinary Arts

Chef Basil Barakat

“I’ve always dreamt of studying at RACA and have preferred Culinary Arts to any other major. My priorities were respecting time and attending all my classes; I didn’t want to miss out on anything!

I am currently working in Canada as a Chef De Partie in JW Marriott Vancouver, after I’ve worked at Fairmont Lake Louis, and before that as a Chef De Partie in Hawksworth restaurant.

After graduating from RACA in 2019, I worked for a year at Four Seasons Hotel Amman, and for my internship semester at RACA, I’ve done it at NH Hotels Canary Islands.

I advise future chefs to seek discomfort because sky is the limit!”
