He is young and his ideas are clear: patisserie is passion, effort to succeed and worship of the best seasonal products. With these coordinates he develops a pastry which increasingly attracts the attention of his fellow professionals inside and outside France. The colorfulness of his presentations and the originality of their formats stand out. There is a clear desire to play, for example in the Abalone tart, but also in the green apple-looking tatin or the raspberry éclair with red dough (all of them in so good.. magazine #13). But let us not be confused by the irresistible look of each of these creations; Antony Prunet has thought out their content and the chosen flavors well. They are clean and seasonal ingredients, combinations which are very gourmand and not excessively overelaborate… So much that they work great in the pastry shop Maison Guignard of Arcachon, where the chef heads the ‘nouveauté création’ station.

We asked about his future plans, to which he confesses that in addition to his growing partnerships with companies such as PCB Création, he has his eye on television and the opportunity to star in a program that shows the complexity and beauty of the pastry trade.
