He has built a successful career in desserts stations at high-end restaurants. He runs the JM Purepastry consultancy.
Leading the JM Purepastry, Jimmy McMillan’s aim is to transmit throughout America how important it is to live pastry passionately – the very same passion he has developed since the age of 15, after working in several restaurants. He defends, with fascination, that pastry is a meeting point between science and arts, and that those starting in the trade need to fall in love with it.
