Chef Fregz celebrates 10 years of graduation from French culinary school
Nigerian chef, Gbubemi Fregene, also known as “Chef Fregz” has celebrated 10 years of graduating from French Culinary School, earning a Diploma in Cuisine.
The graduate of Industrial Relations and Human Resources Management from Covenant University, got the chance to go to Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute in Paris, 10 years ago, and has been making a mark for himself ever since.
The Delta State born chef shared a picture of himself and graduating class members, while recounting the feeling of being the only black student in his set and maybe the whole school that year!
According to his narrative, before culinary school, all he had was a BBQ business and dreams and attending the school was a turning point for a new beginning.
He then encourage his followers that it takes time for things to happen suddenly, “be patient in your process.” He added.
Here is his post on Instagram:
“I know 2020 has come with all its gbas gbos.
“However, this is has been a season of incredible transformation for me, growth and newness all around.
“God has been sending words of affirmation and reassurance to me because behind the Vibes, great food and blue tick it’s a lot of hard work, sweat, silent tears, near-failures and struggles.
“Yesterday was one of those days God wanted my attention… He was trying to show me something. Look, yesterday was exactly 10 years that I got into l as well as rounding up my Culinary education at my alma mater @lecordonbleuparis I asked God why I randomly found this paper yesterday! In between moving office which has been bittersweet, He reminded me that before Culinary school all I had was my BBQ business and dreams and it was a turning point for a new beginning and he made me see that I’m at a turning point again for a new beginning and guess what? All I have is still my work and dreams… Yes, you guessed it!
“If He Did it before He Will Do It Again! I’ve seen Him move I believe He is going to do it again! WON’T HE DO IT! *baptist praise break dance*
“I was also reminded by the comments that I was the only black student in my set and maybe the whole school that year! They hadn’t had a Nigerian there in almost 10 years too! Since then so many others believed they could chase this chef dream and went! This God! Too much!
“Behold I do a new thing! Don’t you see it spring forth! I would cause water to come out of dry land!
“I felt the need to share to encourage someone that it takes time for things to happen suddenly, be patient in your process. If I’m still a work in progress… Relassss God will see to it that you’re taken kiaruffff just trust Him!
“To everyone thats in this picture I hope you’re well and prospering! Tag more of the people too!
