Le Cordon Bleu is a world renowned network of educational institutions dedicated to providing the highest level of culinary and hospitality education through world class programs.

Sharing a brief about the Cuisine Master Chef Colin Westal: Chef Westal started his career with a 3-year apprenticeship with the Roux Brothers gaining experience in 3 of their restaurants: Le Gamin, Le Poulbot and the then 3 Michelin star Le Gavroche. Mastering the finest classical techniques early in his career he then moved to Kensington Place Restaurant under Roux Protégé Rowley Leigh where he quickly progressed up the kitchen brigade. After 8 successful years at Kensington Place, Chef Colin’s love for fish led him to go to Billingsgate market daily to find the best available fish. He would then bring this back to the shop and cook up daily specials and also pass on advice and tips to customers. In 2008, Rowley Leigh again recruited Chef Colin as Head Chef for his new venture; Le Cafe Anglais. Here Chef Colin set up the new 160 seat restaurant which serves award winning Anglo French cuisine. After 3 years Chef Colin moved to Soif Restaurant as Head Chef where he was again challenged to open this new establishment. Chef Colin also designs menus and cooks for small private functions which includes catering a function for Mr & Mrs Rothschild. Chef Colin joined Le Cordon Bleu’s team of Teaching Chefs in 2014 in the team of Cuisine Teaching Chefs and has been imparting his exemplary cuisine techniques to the budding chefs.

Chef Colin Westal addressed the budding chefs of Chitkara School of Culinary Arts along with industry professionals. In this session of “Culinary Arts Demonstrations", Chef Colin Westal demonstrated various skills and techniques of French Culinary Arts taught at the Le Cordon Bleu, London. He also shared and talked about the modern trends in cooking.
