Anil Rohira

Regional Technical & Sales Manager, Corporate Pastry Chef

Chef Rohira started his training at The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, New York, and graduated in 1995. It was because of his exceptional dedication, passion, and professionalism that he started to work for high-standard resorts such as The Balsams, The Cloisters, The Wigwam and as Executive Pastry Chef at the Chevy Chase Club in Washington DC.

Anil Rohira’s success is due to his strong belief in the balance of “heart, head and hand”. His great dedication was recognised in 2009 when Anil Rohira was awarded Pastry Chef of the Year at the World Pastry Team Championship & World Pastry Forum.

Passion, Flexibility and Reliability – it was with these common values that Felchlin Switzerland and Anil Rohira started their collaboration in December 2009.
