Susanne Despature

As a small child, Susanne fell into the cauldron in her grandmother’s kitchen in Switzerland and has been passionate about cooking ever since.

Despite starting her professional life as a primary school teacher, she decided to follow her true passion and enrolled in a a four-year diploma course at the prestigious Hospitality Management School Lausanne, Switzerland (Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne). She honed her culinary skills in several Gourmet Restaurants and five star hotels in Switzerland and graduated with a Diploma of the Arts & Sciences of Hospitality Management. Later on, three years in Singapore and extensive travelling in Southeast Asia tilted her taste buds in a whole new way and influenced her cooking style tremendously.

In 2005, she founded her own Cooking School in Le Mans, France with the aim to share her passion for food with others. Using only the freshest ingredients from the local market, she started to give her recipes an Asian twist by adding lemon grass, galanga or a pinch of turmeric. Back in Singapore since 2011, she sticks to her philosophy that modern cooking can be healthy, tasty, easy to prepare and beautiful to look at.
