Rakesh Saini – Live Eat Breathe chocolates

Many years ago I decided not to pursue what I learnt at University… rather follow what I wanted to do – chocolates

Professional chocolatier, bean to bar maker, flavor master and sugar artist.

My Work spans across being an educationist, trainer, manufacturer and consultant. I consult micro and macro businesses with same zeal.

Rakesh Saini, is a chocolatier and sugar artist by profession and well known in the industry circles in India.  A Master chocolatier, certified “bean to bar” maker and “Master of chocolate flavors” from the Ecole School of Chocolat. He is also trained at prestigious Felchin academy in Switzerland and award winning chocolatiers from Australia. His expertise lies in bean to bar, blending chocolate and flavors. He consults on setting up micro and macro bean to bar set ups.

An industry professional for 19 years now, he started out working in the UK in 2001, engaged with noted sugar artists and build upon his second love, sugarcraft! He is a pioneer in this field esp. structure cakes and in 2014, under his mentor-ship, his students won a place in the Limca Book of World Records for the “tallest structure cake in India”.
