Molecular Gastronomy: New revolution in the hospitality industry

Molecular Gastronomy, first of its kind in the country


Malaysian Institute of baking (MIB) has developed a programme that infuses culinary with science, a first of its kind in the country. The Diploma in Molecular Gastronomy covers both theory and practical training, just like its Diploma in Baking Science and Technology. Upon completion of the Diploma in Molecular Gastronomy, students are awarded the Diploma in Culinary Arts or the Advanced Diploma in Culinary Arts by City &Guilds London. MIB also provides its diploma students three months of industrial training. The diploma can be used as a stepping stone to a degree pathway in recognised universities such as Advance Tertiary College (ATC) Kuala Lumpur that offers Degree in Management Studies from St Mary’s University Twickenham London, and Manipal International University (MIU) Nilai, that offers Bachelor of Business Admin in Marketing, International Business or Technopreneurship. Established in 1987, MIB comes complete with state-of-the-art facilities and is backed by industry experts within over 45 years of experience. The school offers a range of interesting course for beginners who are passionate about baking and culinary skills, and advance courses for bakers or cooks who would like to sharpen their skills. Formerly known as English Hotbreads School of Baking, MIB strives to keep abreast with the latest technology to ensure its students are provided with the most current, relevant training. Don Yong, who is the mentor and hands-on chief instructor, is the chairman of MIB. He is the master baker, author and pastry-lover all rolled into one. Another big name is culinary lecturer Chef CK who won gold medal in hot cooking at Food and Hotel Asia, Singapore in 2010, among others. MIB programmes are recognised by the relevant government bodies and students can apply for study loan. The school is strategically located in PJ new town and does provide hostels facilities for outstation students. - MIB Creative Team
