When i first visited FC, it was love at first sight. It gave me an impression that this place would give me nothing but the best experience and knowledge and true enough it has given me more than what i had expected. Looking back to the first day of my class, i was very empty and had no skills in baking but now i can say that this institute has taught me a lot and I’m looking forward to advance my knowledge and experience. Truly FC gave me the best!
