“I love the fact that Aspira study program is focused more on polishing practical skills than getting theoretical knowledge. I also appreciate that Aspira is very well-connected with major players on Croatian gastro and wine scene. I was happy to collaborate at events like ‘Tuna, Sushi & Wine Festival’ in Zadar and ‘Adriatic Gastroshow’ in Split. When I was only a 1st year student, Aspira has already introduced me to top Croatian chefs. The highlight of my 1st year of study at Aspira was our gastro study trip to Istria, where we enjoyed visiting interesting restaurants and wine cellars. As our professors are really trying hard to show us how things look in ‘real life’, at our workshops we often visit places like craft breweries, fish markets, kitchens of famous restaurants, hotels etc.“
