Lenôtre, a family story

gold and white fountain in the middle of the park
Versailles, famous for his castle, is our birth place


The bakery is not my first profession. It was my dad’s and his brother’s, the famous french pastry chef: Gaston Lenôtre.
If you search for it on Google, you will read that he influenced and modernized the french pastry art since the 1950’s.

He was first to disclose the french pastry abroad, opening stores overseas and teaching professionals from all over the world in his school near Paris.
Gaston took his whole family with him on this adventure. I will share with you later on the blog about this.

The work of passionnate people

Born in the midst of this family “saga”, I have always seen what the profession requires: the precision of the gesture, the quality of the ingredients, the service to customers, the transmission…
With my curiosity as a child, I saw, felt, heard, touched and tasted very early the wonders of nature and the work of passionate people…
In the field and farm of my maternel grand-parents, in my uncle’s hunting parties, in my mom’s stores or accompanying my dad to big events.

This sensory astonishment never left me and I still live it by both practicing the pastry art and discovering this fabulous country what is Mexico.
I would like to share this double experience with you here, through this blog.
