Alumnus Vaibhav Vishen

Alumnus Vaibhav Vishen originally comes from a computer science background, an environment that most of us assume to be very different from being in a kitchen. He believes that his approach towards problem-solving, kitchen management and recipe development has been influenced greatly by his past experiences and refined education from Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand. You can learn more about his Culinary Journey in the link below.
