Un jour d’hiver a Paris

February 19th, 2016 | Posted by greg in Daily life... | Travel - (4 Comments)

Europain just ended in Paris last week and I had the chance to attend this world class baker’s fair, grasping the chance to meet amazing people from oven makers, millers and of course exceptional bakers; such as Mickaël Chesnouard, Xavier Honorin, Beesham Soogrim, Thomas Teffri-Chambelland  or Stéphane Pichard and without forgetting all the others I unfortunately missed … Read more

The persimmon secret

December 14th, 2015 | Posted by greg in Daily life... | Recipes - (0 Comments)

Without a doubt, I have always misunderstood persimmon. It probably comes from my stay in some nice hotel in South East Asia where unripe persimmon were placed in my room as an amenity many years ago. Not knowing what these were and dressed with the same immaculate color as the well known orange, I sliced … Read more

Cucurbita Moschata you said?!

Surely, there is something better that can be done with pumpkin other than a hideous “venti skinny pumpkin spice soy milk latte” ? ;) I am a fan of butternut squash since forever; that soup, with grilled scallops in beurre noisette and garlic-parsely toasted bread my mother made is just anchored deep inside. Call me an old … Read more

Not only famous in Hong Kong for being amongst the finest burgers in town, but soon to open abroad too, it’s at the Butcher’s Club that I will present and cook my take on burger and since I come from the pastry world, I also created a rather stunning bacon profiterole to fit the ambiance!  … Read more

For the past several years, I had a blast pretending to be a fortune teller for the Food and Beverage industry, predicting pseudo trends and dreaming of what would be our industry a year later. It was never meant to be taken to the first degree nor I intended it to be; it was just … Read more

Myrtille, caramel and lemon baba!

June 22nd, 2013 | Posted by greg in Daily life... - (2 Comments)

Sorry, the page you are looking at contains no rum! ;) I have this love and hate relationship with baba. When soaked to perfection, smooth, with a creamy crumb, full of intense flavor with just the right amount of fluffy cream, then I love it. On the other hand, I have issues with baba poorly … Read more

Leave no bread behind.

Pretending I am going to teach anyone how to make the best French toast (or pain perdu) on Earth would be way beyond my confidence point as I think there are so many people making it very well out there… at most, I might be able to inspire a different take on the classic dish… … Read more

I have been thinking for a while on how to start this post. It’s always the same with intense moments… so I guess the best way is to say it simply: Yesterday was officially my last working day at the Four Seasons Hotel! Yes, I am embarking in a new fantastic adventure, chasing my lifelong … Read more

Easter Cupcakes on TVB!

March 22nd, 2013 | Posted by greg in Classes & Demo | Daily life... - (6 Comments)

A week ago, it was my son Clement who was on TVB, eating cupcakes glutinously. On Saturday night, 23rd of March, it’s my turn, but nothing for me to indulge with as I was busy making Easter cupcakes on the show! The tricky part wasn’t really to make the cupcake, but to come up with … Read more

If you look at it from a different angle, happiness doesn’t require any material things… or maybe, it does… if you call chocolate cream material, then yes… a substantial material with an ephemeral life, like butterflies – no, no relation here, except that both are beautiful! :) A week ago, I was asked to post … Read more
