Success stories

I started studying for the CAP Pâtissier with some basic skills that I had acquired at a hotel school. However, at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Pâtisserie, training is focused more on techniques and on high-end patisseries. I also met students from all over the world there. All in all, I received terrific support from the teaching staff and this has helped me in the rest of my career.
