cuisine, a demonstrative workshop was curated specially for them by the
institute. In the class, they learnt the art of Indian cooking, prepared several

conducted by Dr. Zubin D'Souza, Dean of Culinary Studies, É cole Ducasse ISH
Gurugram, introduced participants to various knife skills, cooking concepts and
techniques. From 'farm to table' to sustainable sourcing, the workshop also
covered the latest trends of vegetarian cuisine. Members learnt to blend exotic
Indian spices, identify quality produce and prepare them in the best ways
possible. Additionally, they were taught the art of food presentation as they
served up authentic Indian dishes.
Similar to the programs taught on
campus, the workshop was designed around immersive learning experiences.
Participants gained exposure in professional work settings while improving their
cooking skills. The session included all ingredients, recipes, utensils, and
equipment and was conducted at the campus' professional training kitchens.
Here's what the Dean of Culinary Studies, Dr. Zubin D'Souza, had to say
about the workshop, "The first workshop celebrated the rich heritage of Indian
cuisine as members of the Spanish Embassy learnt to prepare popular local
dishes. Whether it was the distinct flavors of the North, the spicy dishes of
the South, the fresh seafood of the East or curries of the West - the weekend
workshop introduced them to all that and more.
The workshops are now open
to the general public and will be taught by renowned chefs and culinary
pioneers. Students, stay-at-home-moms, working professionals, or anyone with a
flair for cooking can enroll in the course. Exclusive culinary workshops for
corporates, high schools, and children between 8 to 12 years are to be curated
as well. Through these sessions, we aim to build a community around food and
bring together chefs, producers, manufacturers, retailers, and consumers.
Participants get a chance to explore international cuisine, create unique dishes
and discover their inner chef in the short-term workshops. Such hands-on
training forms the perfect platform for a flourishing career in culinary arts.
At the same time, it allows each participant to enter the world of Ducasse and
experience the first École Ducasse campus in India."
