MOF Franck Fresson passed away the night of September 19, about to turn 54 years of age due to undisclosed causes associated with illness.
Born in Lorraine, France into a family of pastry chefs, he was a member of the prestigious Relais Desserts association and chosen as one of the best French chocolatiers by the Club des Croqueurs de Chocolat. Without a doubt, he was one of the professionals with the most leverage and influence within his generation. Normally elusive before the media, he not only earned the unanimous respect of an entire sector, but he especially knew how to connect with the new batch of young talents from his home country.
One of Maison Fresson’s best-known creations is Paris-Metz, a crunchy tricolor macaron mixed with a cream called mousseline and fresh raspberries with which it won a pastry competition in 2008, organized by the Moselle Chamber of Commerce on the occasion of the arrival of the TGV in Metz. His pastry with refined lines, clean finishes, and combinations of just a few elements has become one of the clearest references of what modern pâtisserie can give of itself.
From So Good…, we join the sorrow of the entire sector and send our most sincere condolences to his family and friends.
