Pune, India :
A new Patisserie and Culinary Institute has opened in the city of Pune.
After the roaring success of its first institute in Bangalore, the IIHM Institute of Patisserie and Culinary (IIPC) has just opened its second branch in Pune, the ‘Queen of the Deccan’. IIPC Pune will be housed in the International Institute of Hotel Management’s World Campus in Pune’s Viman Nagar.
The world-class pastry school is headed by renowned Pastry Expert, Chef Avijit Ghosh, Brand Ambassador of the Belgian chocolate company Callebaut and former Corporate Pastry Chef, Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts. The institute will provide world-class education and training in the art of pastry and culinary arts to aspiring chefs, bakers, pastry makers, and culinary professionals who are looking to hone their skills and take their careers to the next level. The curriculum has been designed to provide students with a strong foundation in both the theoretical and practical aspects of bakery and dessert making.
Within a year of opening, IIPC Bangalore has managed to establish itself as the leading pastry and culinary institute in Bangalore. IIPC Pune looks to do the same in the city which is known as the education hub of Maharashtra. IIPC Pune will offer both a nine-month and a six-month certificate course in patisserie, besides weekend courses. IIPC Pune is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including a fully equipped kitchen, a pastry lab and a demonstration kitchen. The courses will be taught by experienced pastry chefs, including international faculty like Chef Sarah Hartnett, all under the guidance of Chef Avijit Ghosh.
IIHM believes that there is a growing demand for skilled pastry chefs and culinary professionals in the hospitality industry. With the increase in the number of hotels, restaurants, and cafés in Pune, there is a need for trained professionals who can deliver high-quality dishes and desserts to customers. The institute aims to fill this gap by providing world-class training to aspiring chefs and pastry makers.
The founders are excited about the institute's potential to transform the culinary landscape of Pune and provide aspiring chefs and pastry makers with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the industry.
On the occasion, Chef Avijit Ghosh said, “IIPC is a unique and innovative institute. Students interested in learning the art of chocolate-making will find a lot of inspiration for making various kinds of chocolates and pastries here.”
Dr Suborno Bose, the Chairman and Chief Mentor of IIHM said, “We are very excited about bringing IIPC to the lovely city of Pune. It will add a new dimension to culinary education in the city. We felt there was a need in Pune for a world class, state-of-the-art patisserie institute and that’s exactly what IIPC is. We are delighted to open IIPC’s second campus here.”
