Moina Oberoi (New York City, USA) - Alumna 2013

Freelance food writer, photographer and recipe developer.

"After moving to the United States from India a year ago, I decided to go back to the drawing board and take a study year to help take my career to the next level. I started my research on programs in gastronomy and came across the HEG brochure. The course looked perfect on paper, short yet comprehensive.

I kept any possible reservations adjourned till the first day of the program, after which they immediately melted away like a watery sorbet on a hot summer’s day. HEG completely exceeded my expectations. The program schedule was beautifully orchestrated by the program coordinator Edwige Sibille, who left no stone unturned. She provided individual attention to all 25 of us attending the program, which left me feeling well taken care of.

The curriculum was carefully structured, touching upon several topics in gastronomy that were both motivating and functional. All though it initially seemed like too much information too fast, I was surprised to see how much I absorbed leaving me with a pool of new ideas for my work. Having had access to some incredibly inspiring gastronomy academics, HEG has given me the confidence to go back in the field and use this knowledge to enhance my work and career. 

Finally, the Pièce de résistance of the program was the people I shared the program with. It was humbling to meet such dynamic people from all over the world, and share a common passion with them. It was a pleasure to be a part of the HEG class of 2013!"
