It doesn’t matter that he is French. His account will leave your mouth watering. This pastry prodigy respects the product as much as the seasons.
With his desserts on the plate, sometimes offered by the minute, like in a palace, he claims a natural French pastry, all in finesse and taste: mille-feuille, lemon tart, éclairs, Paris-Brest, gourmet cakes, simple and not very sweet, but always as close as possible to perfection.
9. Amaury Guichon
Since his appearance on the show, Who will be the next great pastry chef? In 2013, Amaury Guichon became, with Cédric Grolet, the other French pastry rock star on Instagram.
