Why did you decide to study at Le Cordon Bleu?
I have loved eating since I was small, and my dream was to work in a food-related industry. After obtaining two master degrees, I worked in the semiconductor industry for long which is completely different from the gastronomy world. I joined Le Cordon Bleu to realize my life-long dream. Chasing after my dream has enabled me to turn my passion into a career.
At Le Cordon Bleu, I learned so many life lessons through collaborating with my classmates who brought different cultures and perspectives into classrooms. I have built special bonds with the peers I met in the programs.
Why do you enjoy studying pastry making?
The best thing about pastries is how they are easy to enjoy—you can make people happy on ordinary occasions because you don’t need a special reason to enjoy a piece of pastry. Choice, Love and sharing brings us together! It's Choice's vision and also the reason why I founded Choice.
During our lessons in the kitchens at Le Cordon Bleu, it was tough for me to multi-task in a short span of time, since I had no experience working as a professional cook. I gradually managed to get used to the speed, and for my final examination, I presented an original entremets –originally a small pastry dish served between courses. I still remember how happy and proud I was of my achievement.
What is your next goal?
Personally, I would like to return to Le Cordon Bleu Tokyo and learn Japanese cuisine. Our next development for “Choice” will be further global expansion, especially in the Japanese market. Japanese consumers are good critics and have an eye for quality products. If we are successful in Japan, it will boost our chances of winning in other markets, too!
