My passion is sugar, and I love to share it! Chef Bio:Chef Jean Yves Duperret grew up in France in the medieval city of Tours. He graduated from a famous engineering school, one of the best French university-level institutions in the field of engineering & science. He worked in Paris, France, as an Engineer before realizing that his true passion was the art of French pastry. He started his career alongside his stepfather who taught him rudiments of pastry. He then reinforced his skills working for prestigious French pastry shops and winning national contests, until being nationally awarded into his profession. Creating gourmet French desserts has enabled him to ally his artistic talent with his mind for logistics and efficiency. Chef Jean-Yves Duperret is one of the pioneer pastry Chefs in the Bay Area.
