The dessert cook

A family of bakers, parents market gardeners, Sébastien Vauxion's signature has its roots in his personal history.

He developed a passion for the profession of pastry chef very early on and entered the Yssingeaux National Pastry School where he specialized in restaurant desserts and pastry-confectionery. The training courses followed one another, notably at Peltier when Philippe Conticini became responsible for creation, then at Pierre Hermé, before joining Yannick Alléno's brigade at Le Meurice where he took his first steps in haute cuisine. Everything goes very quickly as always with Sébastien Vauxion who has the appetite to learn. But the one who will mark him most strongly is Pierre Gagnaire, his mentor, with whom he will work for ten years.
