Wellington is a tight knit city with our campus located virtually in its centre, opportunities for industry experience are abundant. Just a short walk down the road from our kitchens is the Naumi Studio Wellington, a place of vibrance and extravagance. The moment you walk through its doors you’re transported to a place of colour and charm. We had the opportunity to visit and check in on our current Bachelor of Culinary Art’s and Business student Jessica Budiono.


Naumi Studio Wellington hosts the best high tea in the city. Thanks to the combined effort of Naumi’s Head of Culinary Operations in New Zealand, Chef Kiran Ghate, and Head Pastry Chef Angela Soegijono, a Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand alumni. Naumi has employed numerous of our alumni throughout their operations, including internships for our current students. During our visit chef Kiran Ghate went above and beyond to see to our needs and made time from his duties to talk with us about the quality of our students. 

It’s wonderful to see how committed Naumi New Zealand are to cultivating talent and building upon our students’ education. If you're visiting Wellington and want to experience some of the best cuisine and hospitality visit the Lola Rouge Restaurant and Naumi Studios Wellington. Don’t forget to say hi to our many alumni and current students during your stay.
