Hometown: Saint Germain Laval, a little town in the Loire
Baking Since: 1976
Past Experience: I've opened 4 bakeries, and we always try to have the best products possible. Our family recipe for sour dough is started with fruits and gives a taste and a flavor you can't find everywhere.
I love to bake… The French baguette, and I love to eat it with butter when its still warm.
Lafayette is… A place to get hot bread all day long, a crew that will be happy to say "Bonjour" with a smile when you enter, bread and pastry with a unique taste.
Hometown: The beautiful city of Lyon in the Rhone-Alpes
Baking Since: 1979
Past Experience: I worked in the biggest and the greatest Pastry shop of Lyon and of the Rhone-Alpes as Pastry Chief. I went to classes in the higher schools of Pastry, and attended the School of Fine Chocolate (Valrhona). I have also created animations for the Mayor of Lyon several times.
I love to bake… The chocolate meringue. But i am also a real fan of the French baguette!
Lafayette is… A place to rediscover forgotten flavors.
