Julien… Nice to meet you!
My name is Julien and I am the Pastry Chef at Juliette – pain d’amour.
I was born in Gaillac, in the southwest of France, known for its vineyards and for Yves Thuriès, twice “Meilleur Ouvrier de France”, who revolutionized French pastry in the 70’s and 80’s.
Coming from a family of farmers, I developped early a passion for local products that I learned to cultivate and to work. This passion led me naturally to discover the cooking art, which turned quite soon into love for pastry. I then joined the team of Yves Thuriès for a specialization as a chocolate confectioner which led me to participate in the French Cup of young chocolatiers.
It is in the Basque Country that I came back to the source of my passion. There I could perfect my art of pastry making and graduated as a Pâtisserie Chef.
Moving to Switzerland will allow me to add another exciting step to my career: to bring the knowledge of gourmet and creative French pastry to Zurich.
See you soon at Juliette’s!
