His past jobs include worldwide recognized pastry shops in Paris like “Angelina” as well as being Pastry Chef at one of the “Worlds 50 Best Restaurants” by San Pellegrino in South Africa “The Tasting Room”. He also worked briefly for the renowned chocolatier-pâtissier Jacques Genin where he learned to come back to the essentials: use the best ingredients to simply create good, flavorful desserts. His passion for travel, to learn about different cultures and discover new ingredients has developed his creative side and is reflected in his sweet inspirations. His experience combined to his attention to detail, delicate palate and dedication are now translated in MI CIELO Pâtisserie”.
