I completed my patisserie diploma from Palate Culinary Academy and my journey has been wonderful. Words are not enough to show appreciation to Chef Rakhee Vaswani and Chef Suvarna who has given their time and co operation to shape my career. The kind of inspiration, guidance, exposure and facilities provided by team Palate is unbeatable. I appreciate the Chef for being my mentor and showing me how to transform my mistakes into skills.

The fact that the institute provides its students the wings and encourages them to showcase their talent is commendable. I am proud to be a part of PCA family.

I would like to express my gratitude towards Palate Culinary Academy and team for all the facilities and support they have provided. I would like to thank Chef Rakhee and Chef Suvarna for their lessons and guidance. Without their trust on me, I could not have been able to overcome my fears. They not only helped in building my basics but also provided me with a large variety and high end quality of products. They provided me with many platforms to practice and enhance my skills. I could not have asked for better learning academy than this since Palate is more of a family now. Thank you Palate!

Palate culinary academy is truly an academy for anyone interested in learning and honing their skills in the field of baking and patisserie arts. The faculty constantly guides and challenges you to be creative and think out of the box. The program I’ve just completed has been an amazing journey. The information and knowledge I acquired has been invaluable and I will take it with me as I look forward to new challenges and success in the Food & Beverage field.

I can honestly say that Chef Rakhee and her team has never failed me in either attention to detail or timeliness in answering questions and supporting me. It is a pleasure to find such a ‘professional operation.

I have completed my Patisserie Diploma from Palate Culinary Academy. This academy is so good!! Learnt to create delectable dishes from scratch from the best chefs. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. One thing I want to tell you is that in the last 7 months this Academy has become my second family. Both the chefs, Chef Rakhee Vaswani and Chef Suvarna are amazing and friendly. They truly want their students to succeed in their careers. It was an amazing journey till now.

To sum it up quickly : I vividly recollect walking into Palate as a lazy, aimless student who never took anything seriously. Cut to present, I have done both the programs (Culinary and Patisserie ) from Palate Culinary Academy and post the 6- months training, I can now confidently step into the industry with passion in my heart and hard work in my will to handle an entire kitchen space. All thanks to Chef Rakhee Vaswani and Team.

I know for a fact miss that the happiness I got working with you, nothing even comes near that The exposure you give your students completely matches international standards And I’m telling you this from all my heart. I get soo many messages from girls on my Instagram asking about Palate and whether that’s better or abroad Ive realised this being far away that you do really good miss and you should really give yourself a tap on the shoulder. You have met all international standards and even LCB(Le Cordon Bleu) standards for that matter really. The things we learn here, it’s so funny that I really know everything and feel so confident about it. It’s all because of you.
