Hideko Kawa

Head Pastry Chef
Grand Diplôme®, 1996


Hideko Kawa I’m from Japan. I was always interested in cooking from an early age and I wanted to develop this with formal training. I knew that Le Cordon Bleu was the best culinary arts school in the world so it was here that I chose to study. London has a dynamic culinary scene, with influences from around the world. That’s why I chose the London school - great city, great school, a great combination! The part of the course I enjoyed most was the Superior Pâtisserie level. I remember creating an amazing chocolate centrepiece with an Alice in Wonderland theme! Overall, the programme was excellent and the staff and instructors were professional. Le Cordon Bleu school provided expert training preparing me to enter the international culinary market. Since graduating with a Grand Diplôme, I have worked in a number of internationally acclaimed restaurants, including Gordon Ramsey's Royal Hospital Road restaurant where I worked for 6 years and more recently I was Head Pastry Chef (for four years) at The Fat Duck which was amazing. I am enjoying a fantastic culinary journey since graduating from Le Cordon Bleu! Read more.
