To achieve this, the French chef knows that the key is in the team, that is why he invests time and effort “to create a strong pastry brigade who love to come to work, they come because they work with their heart”. Delicate sweet pieces come out of the hands of this French pastry chef, in this case using meingue in the form of a macaron as an ice cream dessert.
