Coffee grinders, perfumes, radios and books in four artistic creations by Amaury Guichon

With almost three million followers, Amaury Guichon, one of the pastry chefs with the greatest international projection, continues to set trends. His originality and technical perfection are acclaimed by his followers. If vocation and perseverance are added to that, success is more than assured.

In his creative process, the French chef seeks to distinguish himself, to establish his own canon, as he explains in so good # 19. “I try to create things that haven’t been done before. I am often inspired by different materials and techniques in fields of work. I also like to trick the mind by creating things that look like everyday objects such as a watch, an egg, or a compass. I’m looking for people to see my products and say “it’s too pretty … I don’t want to eat it.”

To delve further into his work, we recommend consulting the recipe of the colorful Guilty Pleasure or purchasing a book that gathers 12 of his most exclusive desserts, explained from the sketches to the last details.

In his social media, he never ceases to surprise with spectacular pieces. Here are four that are undoubtedly a good example of Guichon’s talent and ability to leave more than one person with their mouths open.
