Where did your passion for pastry, and your desire to make a career out of it, come from?
When I was young, I often used to help one of my uncles, who owned a bakery/pastry boutique, and I knew almost immediately that this was what I wanted to do for a living. I went on to study pastry and took my pastry “Certificat d’Aptitude Professionnelle (CAP)” when I was 15 years old. However, during my apprenticeship I also had to focus on boulangerie. This proved to be a revelation, allowing me to discover my passion for this trade. Following my apprenticeship, I was chosen as one of the best apprentices in the region, which gave me the opportunity to take part in the “Meilleur Apprenti de France” competition.
