Graduate StoriesNatasha Timveos

"At the Culinary Arts Academy, I learned how to work under pressure as well as to give my best to any task at hand."

Graduation Year
2012

Position
Pastry Chef Amathus Beach Hotel in Limassol

Country
Cyprus

"I chose to study Culinary Arts for the love of the industry and chose Switzerland as my destination for the possibility to surround myself with people from different cultures. At the Culinary Arts Academy, I had the opportunity to study with students from around the world and to learn from their cultural and culinary heritage.

I did my internship, working at Amathus hotels and once I finished, was really lucky to then be taken on as a full-time employee. It was a challenge for me at first to cater to the large numbers of guests we have at the hotel, but with the training that I had, I was able to quickly adapt. I now work in the pastry department as a night shift supervisor. I love my job and can say that the highlight of my career comes each time that I am able to create sugar showpieces for both. The hotel and the competitions that I enter. Sugar art, which I learned during my time in Switzerland is one of my real passions and I love the creativity that it allows me.

At the Culinary Arts Academy, the lecturers and chefs taught me that hard work, long hours and dedication to my work would help me to achieve success – they were not wrong! As a woman, I have had to work hard to prove myself in the kitchen as it is still very much a male-dominated workplace. Showing the other staff that I know how to work under pressure and give my best to any task at hand has earned me their respect and my place on the team.

I would recommend to any student considering studying hospitality or culinary arts that they take up the challenge. Working in hospitality opens your eyes to so many different people from different cultures and it is an amazing opportunity. Learn from every experience as best as you can and you will find it is worth it!"
