The Heny Sison Culinary School began by conducting Lifestyle Classes, which are mostly one-day-long workshops or lecture-demo classes on a number of select cooking and baking techniques. We repeat certain Lifestyle Classes every month or every other month, depending on the feedback from our students. Through time, we have continually added new and interesting Lifestyle Classes to stay abreast with food trends and developments. If you’re looking for a fun, informative way to master certain culinary methods, our Lifestyle Classes may be for you.


All classes are on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register, give us a call at (02) 726-5316 or send us a message at or on our Facebook page – When registering, please indicate the classes you intend to participate in and include your contact details (name, address, email address, landline and mobile number).
