Philippe Conticini

Philippe Conticini is one of those pastry chefs who have achieved nearly everything.

From his mythical desserts in verrine (which allowed him to control in which order the components of a dessert should be tasted) to the way he revisits the most important classics of French pastry, turned into the icons of La Pâtisserie des Rêves, the business he run until 2017 in Paris and Japan alongside Thierry Theisser. From 2018 he opens his own business with two shops in Paris and a corner-shop in Galeries Lafayette.
