Sambit BANIK (Kolkata, India) – Alumnus 2013

CEO, The Silveroak Group (fine dining restaurant chain).

" I am totally in awe after attending the highly coveted 'Hautes Etudes du Goût' (HEG) Course of Le Cordon Bleu Paris, jointly organized with the University of Reims Champagne- Ardenne, which leads to the Diplôme Universitaire du Goût, de la Gastronomie et des Arts de la Table (DUGGAT).

During the course of my study I have found that the contents and delivery of this program is very scientific. A very careful selection of some of the best professors not only from France but among the best in the world like Prof. Hervé This and other luminaries teach the various modules. Not only one learns from the best, but also one learns the best in terms of pedagogy.

Care is also taken to avoid monotony by scheduling the classes with lectures and practical demonstrations.
The entire study period just whizzes past one, punctuated by serious studies, market visits (even at the dead end of the night like 2am), tasting sessions and bonding with fellow students - chosen selectively from accross the world, over a delicious dinner at a Parisian restaurant after a day of hard work.

One should also commend the time scheduling and the warm hospitality accorded to each and every student during their course of Study in both Paris and Reims.

It is a once in a lifetime experience, and if one deserves to be selected, and finally qualifies this prestigious Diploma, it can change his or her life."
