He won the National Trophy for Sugar Art as well as the first prize at the French Croquembouche Festival in 2005. Responsible for testing and creating various amazing desserts, he co-authored two books with Christophe Adam and Benoît Couvrand alongside parallel duties training the staff at Fauchon’s new locations worldwide, from Dubai to Morocco.
