Suzue Aoyama : Sozai Cooking School
Sozai Cooking School
Born and brought up in Osaka, Japan, her family runs a traditional udon noodle restaurant where they also sell wagashi. While Suzue helped making wagashi at home, she wondered how the patisseries were made in the bakery next door. This led her to discover the world of patisserie. She received Patisserie and Culinary diplomas at Le Cordon Bleu in London and Paris. She was promoted until she was in charge of the renowned afternoon tea pastries at The Savoy London. She also achieved several awards including the Gold award for Tea Pastries and the Gold medal at the Culinary Olympics. Suzue co-founded and built the premium brand ‘William Curley’ which won several chocolate awards and joined the world’s leading association, Relais Desserts. Suzue’s philosophy is to ‘Spread the Joy of Patisseries’ and she would love to teach and share her skills with you.
