These differently abled bakers in Kolkata make the tastiest French cakes according to foodies

If you’re looking for an authentic French patisserie in Kolkata that serves madeleines, financiers and more, then you should try Shuktara Cakes. The team at Shuktara consists of differently abled and orphaned boys, some of whom can’t talk, but they let their handmade cakes do the talking. How the boys overcame their physiological disabilities and came together to make Shuktara Cakes a success is truly amazing.

It all started when David Earp, a UK-based textile designer came to Kolkata. The sight of differently abled children who had been abandoned moved him deeply. David who was adopted as a child developed great compassion towards these children and resolved to provide them with a home where they could receive all the love and support. As a result, the Shuktara Trust which takes care of differently abled children and young people who have been orphaned or abandoned was formed.

As the children were getting older, David and the chairman of Shuktara were concerned about their future. David spoke about this to one of his friends Alain Cojean, a French restaurateur, who decided to give them vocational training by starting a French Patisserie training centre. The physically challenged boys were trained in the intricacies of baking by Fabien Rouillard, an executive pastry chef at Fauchon in Paris and Shuktara Cakes was officially launched on March 10, 2013.

The boys at the bakery have become the talk of the town and receive constant praise for their brilliant work. With their superb kitchen skills, they could soon give the other bakers in the town a run for their money.
