Meet François

Francois is a real life French pastry chef, yep straight from France.  Well, not straight from France but that's where he grew up and eventually trained for 6 years.  He furthered his training in the US (in San Francisco with La Boulange), Japan where he was the Executive Pastry Chef for one of the top French restaurants in Tokyo (Austral), and then to Canada (where he was a pastry teacher and owner of Et voila!). More recently, he was the Executive Pastry Chef for Doughbies.

Meet Ingrid

Ingrid grew up with baking wisdom from her grandma and mom, developing a passion for French pastries early on. Initially a mechanical engineer, she later explored management consulting and venture capitalism, but her heart was always in the kitchen. Her love for baking evolved from French classics to experimenting with renowned pastry chefs' recipes. After burnout in Silicon Valley, baking became her lifeline, leading her to partner with François, a talented French pastry chef, to build a thriving bakery.
