Owner of a little snack bar and pretty passionate about cuisine, Rajkomar Khemduth had a brilliant idea: Baking and selling vegan and vegeterian (no eggs anyway) pastries. !

The employees are hard at work: the shipment leaves soon to restock his two POS and a few other retailers.

Starting with La Marmite Divine (The divine cooking-pot), Rajkomar quickly saw is business grow, and had to expend: La Pâtisserie Divine (The divine pastry) was born.

The business now offers fine caterer service, fast-food, and pastries.
On top of that, Rajkomar shares his knowledge each week for a 3 months long baking course.
Really best doughnuts ever !
