CULINARY SCHOOL AFFILIATION: Cesar Ritz College, Culinary Arts Academy, Switzerland
Chef Rando Kauge grew up in Estonia, which is where his love of food began. In addition to food, he also loved football (soccer) and played professional in his younger years. He eventually gravitated to the hotel and restaurant industry and after working in numerous areas of the industry, established his own catering company in 2012. His catering service provided high-end delivery to demanding international and local customers like NATO, Estonian Government members and UEFA.
After many years running his catering company, he decided to pursue formal culinary training and enrolled in the Cesar Ritz Culinary Arts Academy in Switzerland. After graduation, Chef Kauge went on to work in high-level, 1 star Michelin restaurants within Switzerland, taking positions as saucier and chef de production.
Today Chef Kauge has come full circle and has returned to Cesar Ritz Culinary Arts Academy in Switzerland as a full-time chef instructor where he teaches culinary skills-based classes in Banquet and Buffet Preparation. He is also very passionate about sustainable living and vegetarian cuisine and teaches the vegetarian gourmet course.
