Gregory Doyen is currently Executive Pastry Chef at the most luxurious hotel in Taipei, the Mandarin Oriental, where he is in charge of the Madarin Cake Shop, breakfast, private events, afternoon tea as well as bakery. My creations are a combination of aesthetics and the right flavours. For me, pastry should create an impact on the guest upon the first impression. It has to be visually attractive at first. Then the flavours will slowly emerge to complete the whole experience.

I started back in 1992 working for a local bakery. I grew up in the south of Paris, and my background was in retail shops before I moved to the U.S. I moved to the U.S. to learn how to speak English, I worked in Paris for Chef Nicola Bussa, who connected me with Chef Frederic Montti, I worked for him for two years at the Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida. I moved to Laguna Beach, California to work for the St. Regis with Chef Stephan Crion where I had the opportunity to move to Tokyo for a year. Chef Stephan was consulting for the opening of a new pastry shop and I was hired to make the production of cakes and pastries. When my time was up in Tokyo, I went back to the U.S. to work for the Park Hyatt. I also worked for Edward Notter School in Orlando, Florida. I was in charge of the development of the Pastry Programs, but the project didn’t last long. So, I ended up moving back to California to work for the St. Regis for a couple years, before I decided that my life needed a new challenge and that is when I decided to move to Beijing.

Selection of Ice Cream & Sorbet - 4th to 6th November 2019
Creator, ice cream maker, pastry chef, David Wesmaël seeks to awaken the senses and pleasures with his know-how for 25 years. Originally from the North of France, he quickly develops a search for excellence of flavors and a great technological mastery. David was recognized by his peers in 2004 with the title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France Glacier and Team Pastry World Champion in 2006. Passed by the Meert house among others, David has long remained in the shadows, preferring to specialize in research and development. By creating the Glacerie Paris, David seeks to reconnect with the pleasure of freshly torn ice, placing the pleasure of the taster at the center of his research: "There is a form of evidence of the pleasure to have when we eat for the first time. once an ice scent." Combine fruit puree and fresh fruit, look for the best proportions, vary the types of milk used, lengthen or shorten the maturations of the preparations: there are many parameters to master to obtain ice cream as perfect. A requirement of quality and know-how well mastered that would be nothing without passion.
