Baking Up a Dream

Courtyard and Fairfield by Marriott Bengaluru Outer Ring Road

In November, the Marriott Hotels in Bengaluru organized a Women in Leadership cluster activity. Together, 25 female associates visited the Vidya Foundation with the goal of supporting women’s empowerment, opening doors of opportunity for less-privileged women, and potentially finding employment for them.

The Vidya Foundation was founded 30 years ago with the objective to support, educate, and provide vocational training to women from less-privileged backgrounds to help provide access to employment opportunities and equal rights.

Chef Sudhir Nair, Executive Chef at Courtyard Bengaluru Outer Ring Road and Fairfield by Marriott Bengaluru Outer Ring Road, and our female associates had an interactive cooking demonstration with the young women who love the art of cooking.

Ten young women from the Vidya Foundation visited the hotel to learn about baking at the outset of Christmas. Courtyard and Fairfield by Marriott Bengaluru Outer Ring Road organized a tour of the hotel kitchens and spent some time in the bakery with Pastry Chef Rahul Kumar making cupcakes. They even helped pipe cupcakes which were later served to them for tasting. It was a joyous event for all participants.
