I naturally started my apprenticeship at 15 years old in this Pastry shop, and today this made all my pride. My desire to push forward led me up to train with several “Meilleurs Ouvriers de France” (a French prestigious title) and Champions from the pastry world. They had shown me how much creativity was nothing without rigour. All of this lead me today to transmit this dedication to the new generation. I also share my experience and my creation during demonstrations, master-classes and consulting. I am eager of this kind of meeting both with professionals of my sector and also pastry enthusiasts.”

Entrepreneur:

“During summer 2016, my wish was to remastered a traditional product of my region in order to surprize my clients. This was the born of the Cream’lé®, and customers appreciated it. That is why I decided to get involve in a new project.

As a matter of fact, I opened in June 2017, a new concept store in Bordeaux: The Corner San Nicolas. This new pastry-shop has for goal to put my signature pastry under the spotlight but not only. Indeed, at Corner San Nicolas, my clients could also taste other pastries, macarons and chocolate.”
