KUALA LUMPUR: The Ministry of Human Resources encourages restaurant and eatery operators to hire qualified cooks from local government-run training institutions.

Its deputy minister Datuk Mahfuz Omar said it was to ensure that young people receiving intensive training and having specialised skills in this field can earn a steady income.

“The government will continue to cater to various local industry training agendas in the culinary field and related disciplines that have been initiated by the previous government.

“Cooking can no longer be looked down upon, it even has its own class as local training institutions have produced many accredited people in cooking,� he said in a question and answer session at the Dewan Rakyat yesterday. — Bernama
