The Journey

After obtaining CAP certificate of cuisine, she continued training in several distinguished restaurants as Les Ambassadeurs with Chef Jean-François Piège and Jérôme Chaucesse, Relais d’Auteuil with Chef Patrick Pignol, in the pastry atelier of legendary Pâtissier Pierre Hermé, as well as The French Laundry as the last stop before going back to home.
