I am Keiko Tanaka. I am 37 years old and originally from Kanagawa Prefecture. In Japan, I used to be a soccer player. Initially, I came to Australia to play soccer, but I started considering a career change after soccer ended. I discovered Evolution’s cooking course and decided I wanted to change my career in that direction. School life at Evolution is very enjoyable, and the trainers are incredibly supportive. I know it might be concerning to take classes in English, but they are really understanding and provide support even if you don’t understand. It’s been a great help! In the practical cooking classes in the kitchen, we mainly study Western cuisine, and it’s very refreshing to be able to cook from scratch, such as making soup stock.
Diving into a culinary adventure that goes beyond the classroom, our exceptional students at Evolution recently showcased their culinary prowess in a cooking class that left taste buds tingling! With a dash of creativity and a sprinkle of expertise, they skillfully transformed raw ingredients into a mouthwatering masterpiece of fish and chips.
