Alumni Story: Rinrin Marinka
Le Cordon Bleu Celebrity Chef

Le Cordon Bleu recently held an event in Jakarta featuring Indonesian celebrity chef and Grand Diplôme graduate Rinrin Marinka. Since completing her studies in French Cuisine and Pâtisserie at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney, Rinrin began working as a freelance cooking instructor. Her passion for cooking and her culture led to many attempts to create a synergy between east and west cuisines - quality and artistic fusion menus. She has since built up an impressive portfolio in Indonesia appearing in numerous commercials and TV shows, being profiled in multiple magazines and newspapers, and guest starring at cooking events. Currently hosting "Cooking in Paradise", a travelling cooking show at Trans7 TV, one of Indonesia's distinctive TV channels, her ultimate goal is to place Indonesian food culture onto the world’s platter.

Le Cordon Bleu would like to praise Rinrin for exceeding in her passion, wishing her the best for her TV show and all future endeavours.

A Delicious Treat for Ella Danilova

Starting out as small home business making cakes and cupcakes for weddings and engagements, bar and bat mitzvahs, brit milot, baby naming ceremonies and birthdays, and has expanded to include a wide range of dessert cakes, tortes, flans, babkes and bulkas, all freshly made to order. Delicious Treats has since been featured in various magazines including Cosmopolitan Bride, Bride to be, Modern Wedding Cakes and other industry publications for their beautiful designs and high quality products. Most recently Delicious Treats was approached to create a cake for the Premier of New South Wales (NSW). The cake was commissioned to be in the shape of the state of NSW, a challenge that was masterfully met.

Le Cordon Bleu commends Ella on her dedication to the art of food and wishes her well as she enjoys her self-made sweet success.
