Born and brought up in Osaka, Japan, her family runs a traditional udon noodle restaurant where they also sell wagashi. Suzue was brought up surrounded by many food inspirations. While Suzue helped wagashi making at home, she used to wonder how the patisseries were made next door which led her to discover the world of patisserie.
Suzue studied at the Le Cordon Bleu in London and Paris and obtained both Patisserie and Culinary diplomas. During her training days, she gained various experiences from the world's leading hotels. Eventually, Suzue was promoted to be in charge of the renowned afternoon tea pastries at The Savoy London. She also achieved several awards including the Gold award for Tea Pastries and the Gold medal at the Culinary Olympics.
Suzue co-founded and built the premium brand 'William Curley' which won several chocolate awards and joined the world's leading association, Relais Desserts. During this time she also mentored young pastry chefs who now work successfully as pastry chefs around the world.
Suzue's philosophy is to 'Spread the Joy of Patisseries' and she would love to teach and share her skills with you.
My teenage son attended Suzue’s Mont Blanc class and he truly enjoyed the experience. As this is a French cake the procedures were a little complex but Suzue cleverly divided the class into simple steps guiding the class through step-by-step procedures.
To my son’s surprise, the result was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the fruit of his labour with the whole family. An excellent and invaluable activity for my son during the lockdown. Merci beaucoup!
Both recipes given to us were clear to follow. And the chef's professional tips here and there were extremely valuable.
I've taken 3 classes with Suzue-sensei. She is lovely and I really enjoy making yummy desserts. My family is so happy too. I'm 13, I can be in this class without my mum now! Thank you 😋
This is my first time making Mont Blanc. It's quite a challenging dessert to make in my opinion. However, Suzue gave very clear explanation and she guided us through each step. It's a tasty and very classy dessert to impress your guest. I would definitely make it again. I didnot have rum in my house but instead I used some whisky which still worked. The chestnut cream is very tasty and with the additional alcohol gives it a twist to the taste. I had leftover chestnut cream and I made good use of it by using it as filling for dorayaki.
