Chocolatier at Gabriel Kreuther
“I started as a Hospitality major at Johnson & Wales University and had friends who were Culinary majors. As I hung out with them, I got more and more acquainted with what they did and ended up switching my major to Baking and Pastry. I had my “aha moment” when I went to study abroad in France, at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Pâtisserie, a pastry institute in the south of Lyon. I had never seen anything like it; there, pastry is an art form. I saw the potential of how high the craft can be elevated and I fell in love with how artistic and creative pastry could be.„
