Individual, unique, utterly dependable. In a career spanning nearly 40 years,

Chef Cyrus Todiwala has built a name for himself as a ‘Chef’s chef’. 


Among fellow chefs, he is the admired ‘go to’ peer with a true cook’s knowledge and vocabulary, and the genuine innovator's courage and mind-set to break boundaries and to be different. 


In the eyes of aspiring chefs, he is the one many aspire to, the quintessential professional and innovator who has gone the distance without having to sacrifice his standards.


No surprise then that Chef Cyrus has chosen to partner with Poggenpohl and Gaggenau to launch the new Mr Todiwala’s Academy. Poggenpohl and Gaggenau have  been creators of some of the world’s finest, custom-made kitchens and kitchen equipment, respectively. Both brands stand for quality and tradition. No two Poggenpohl kitchens are crafted exactly alike, but each order is designed against the most detailed specifications and the highest standards. Gaggenau has an unrivalled reputation for being at the vanguard of design and functionality – ‘beyond the realms of every day norms’.


From October 2016, Mr Todiwala’s Academy will be a prestigious space for leading chefs, including Mr Todiwala himself, and those who expect to learn from the best.


Chef Cyrus and carefully selected chef peers will create culinary experiences,

One-to-one or group Master Classes or Chef Demonstrations  using the finest equipment, and backed by a tradition of excellence. 


No two experiences will be alike, as they will be tailored to individual needs, against agreed specifications.


  • Master Classes– Bespoke experiences where Chef Cyrus will conduct lessons in a particular culinary area, recipe and menu creation, techniques and cooking styles, or cooking with specific ingredients. These can be one-on-one or in groups. Some hands-on activity can be included. 

  • Chef Demonstrations– lectures and lessons from Chef Cyrus and experts  to help grow one’s knowledge and skills.

  • Mr Todiwala's Academy – Building on the legacy of Peter Hazzard, Masterclasses & Chef Demonstrations with visiting chefs.

  • Each experience can include lunch or dinner at Café Spice Namasté as part of the tailored package.


Mr Todiwala's Academy offers rare master classes where, within a relaxed, intimate teaching environment,

chefs at the top of their game share their secrets on a range of relevant topics, from how to create time-honoured recipes

to honing complex cooking techniques.


Watch as world-class chefs, some household names, turn their expertise and experience to a number of themes, including world cuisine, making the most out of seasonal produce, cooking with spices and the heights and delights of pastry.


Mr Todiwala's Academy is perfect for professional chefs and would-be chefs or any food lover who wishes to cook and learn from some of the best talents in the industry, including Michelin-starred chef-restaurateurs and executive chefs.
