The luxury hospitality icon of the capital of Indonesia, the InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah, has prepared a whole series of sublime pastry products and events for affluent residents of Jakarta to the fullest.

The sweet creations of Pastry Consultant Chef Kim Pangestu never cease to amaze us. The talented Indonesian artisanal pastry star honed her skills in prestigious kitchens in Australia such as Le Cordon Bleu in Sydney, Kirsten Tibballs’ Savour Chocolate, and Patisserie School, Peter Doyle at The Quay, Tetsuya’s and Adriano Zumbo’s Zumbo Patisserie.

Upon her return to Indonesia, she became the Pastry Chef and owner of Nomz Kitchen, where her sweet creations earned her undeniable adulation and recognition from pastry connoisseurs all over Indonesia. As well as being the baking instructor’s favorite of many leading brands, Kim is now building her own pastry business in Jakarta.

We caught up with Kim Pangestu, who filled us in on why she loves baking and of course, what it’s like working for InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah.
