Chefs Olivier Mahut's masterclasses

India is a little sweeter after a visit by one of Le Cordon Bleu’s leading Patisserie Chefs Olivier Mahut in September.

Chef Mahut travelled around to some of India’s leading hospitality schools and universities, hosting exclusive cooking demonstrations to showcase some of France’s classic desserts and the Le Cordon bleu techniques used to produce them.

This included Sophia College, who offer one of the oldest and most prestigious courses in hospitality in the country; The Institute of Hotel Management Aurangabad, ranked among the premiere hotel management institutes of India; The Institute for International Management & Technology, ranked amongst the premier hotel management institutions of India; and GD Goenka University, who partnered with Le Cordon Bleu in July 2013 in order to deliver a range of high quality culinary and hospitality courses developed with industry in mind.

Chef Mahut also put on an exciting culinary demonstrations for the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry Ladies Organisation, demonstrating the Le Cordon Bleu Patisserie techniques to a very receptive crowd of India’s most influential women.

This tour of India also gave Chef Mahut the opportunity to meet up with Alumni at several events, including two of le Cordon Bleu’s most famous Alumni - Pooja Dhingra and Rakhee Vaswani. Pooja, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Paris founded Le15 Patisserie to offer Mumbai a taste of classic French patisserie, now recognised as undoubtedly India’s best known patisserie. Rakhee, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu London, is a cookery expert and a celebrity chef in Mumbai, where she is successfully running the Palate Culinary Studio, a first of its kind cooking school.

All in all, it was a very successful visit, and we hope that those who attended Chef Mahut’s masterclasses have developed an enduring love of French Patisserie.
