Meet with Aurélie Ribay, former intern at Paris Bakery & Patisserie School

I was 46 and living in Paris when I decided to change careers, and retrained to work in bakery. At that point I’d been in sales and marketing for 24 years, with experience in the insurance, construction, ophthalmology and banking industries.

A taste of Japan at the Paris Bakery and Patisserie School!

As is the case every year, the school will host a delegation of students from the Japanese pastry school Visionary Arts, which has campuses in Tokyo and Fukuoka. From 25th to 28th September, twelve students enrolled in the Patisserie BTM vocational training programme will receive an introduction to Japanese culinary specialities. Traditional Japanese doughs and cakes will be featured, including gyoza and castella, along with modern versions of French pastries such as a vanilla and matcha-flavoured éclair.
