Sexy Fish Group Executive Pastry Chef Mohan Boddula left West London College in 2013 after completing a postgraduate course in pastry. Ten years later he’s travelling the world teaching pastry at Sexy Fish restaurants as well as designing all the desserts on the various menus. On top of that Mohan is joining the judging panel for this year’s Student Pastry Chef of the Year competition to be held at West London College.
Earlier this month, Catherine Farinha, founder and CEO of The Chefs’ Forum, visited Sexy Fish in Mayfair to meet Chefs Mohan and Mattia Ricci (Head Chef) and sample the wonderful menu.
Catherine said: “Mohan is such a great example of a chef who has come through the college system. He applied himself and reached the top of the tree. We couldn’t be happier for him. It just goes to show what a college education can do. At The Chefs’ Forum our academies work with restaurant groups and hotels to showcase the best careers and job opportunities for young chefs.”
Head of Curriculum at West London College, Denise Charles, was also present for the lunch at Sexy Fish.
Denise said: “Mohan’s pastry lecturer, Yvan Cahour, is still teaching with us today. It’s a great course and we’re so proud of Mohan.”
Catherine concluded: “All his desserts were amazing! It was also exciting to meet Mattia and invite him to join our wonderful brigade of guest chef lecturers who regularly teach at West London College as part of The Chefs’ Forum Academy.”
The Chefs’ Forum Academy, now in its fifth year, is designed to bridge the gap between education and industry and introduce students to high-profile employers
