Stories of Le Cordon Bleu Graduates

Vol.4 “Pastry making is a creation process and a new pursuit of aesthetics.”


JAPAN:The course offers classes on Japanese cooking techniques where students can learn over 200 traditional, local and modern Japanese dishes.

Mr. Bobo Lee
Owner of BoboLEE Cake
2014 Pastry Diploma at Le Cordon Bleu Tokyo

Bobo Lee started his career as a professional designer and his work as a cake designer and pastry chef contain a delicate balance of Japanese beauty, elegance and sophisticated simplicity – qualities instilled in him during his days at Le Cordon Bleu., where he obtained a diploma in pastry making.

“What French pastry and design have in common is the pursuit of aesthetics,” Bobo Lee says. “While it is not too difficult to make pastries taste good, it is much harder to create an excellently-designed cake. It requires reflecting the designer’s personality through cakes to create something attractive.”

Bobo Lee’s work goes far beyond classical pastries and wedding cakes. His creations include the amazing pastry pieces he invented for a private dinner party for HAIG CLUB, a whisky brand produced by football legend David Beckham.

He has worked on a number of international projects, collaborating with a Britain’s renowned celebrity food artist Tom Wolfe as well as Steven Ryu, who is among the most sought-after chefs in China now. With more projects lined up, Bobo Lee is sure to attract more attention on an international scale.
