Welcome to L’ARTISTE

Welcome to L’Artiste – the first of its kind culinary institute of Ahmedabad which turns your passion for cooking into a profession. The passion for cooking can be from childhood or you acquire it as you grow up, so whatever the reason or age group may be, if you are interested in making your career in culinary arts, we will leave no stones unturned to make it happen. We are equipped with world class infrastructure amidst the city, a talented team of highly trained & experienced faculties and an unmatched zeal to change the culinary arts landscape as it is perceived.

L’Artiste – It’s a French word which means an artist. Now, when we think of an ‘artist’, professions that usually come to our mind might be a painter, a photographer or a performance artist like a singer, a dancer, or a guitarist. But have we ever thought of an artist which deals with culinary arts? Have we ever thought about the history, science, and technology and management part of the culinary arts? Have we ever thought of culinary arts as a profession and start an entrepreneurial journey with it? To answer all these questions, we have set up a state-of-art culinary institute in Ahmedabad with a unique vision and mission.


With a unique pedagogy, we wish to redefine the way culinary arts is taught and ultimately treated as a profession. With the help of vast knowledge and expertise in teaching and industry domains of the l’Artiste team, we strive to provide a world class platform to budding culinary arts enthusiasts so that they can excel in the field and have a bright career in the global hotel and food industry.


“A recipe has no soul, you as the cook, must bring soul to the recipe” – Thomas Keller

With the above quote in mind, our vision is to impart the knowledge of food in the most practical and artistic way so that we create a clan of talented individuals who have all the required skills to be employable & entrepreneurial and who puts soul in every recipe that they make. We desire to make l’Artiste a global mainstream brand in the field of culinary arts in coming years.
