The studio was set up by Rakesh, with a mission to impart the best possible knowledge in the domain of Bakery (completely Eggless) and Chocolate and has been consistently educating enthusiasts and professionals since its inception in 2012.
The studio draws bakers and beginners alike in various Indian cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Jaipur and Kolkata. In a scenario where quality instruction in a flexible setting was hard to find, 32 degree is the first of its kind in India.
The team at 32 degree are proud pioneers in the areas of eggless baking, teaching chocolate scientifically, structure cakes and modelling chocolate (adapted to the humid conditions in India). Many of the popular classes and kitchens running today have learned their skills here.
