It is impossible to imagine a restaurant or a cafe without a list of desserts, a confectionery without pies, and a bakery without bread.  Dessert is like a finishing chord in a splendid part of  lunch or dinner. Not only must it be tasty, it  must also be light and dainty.  And it goes without saying that the last impression of the finishing chord is sure to be  at the  high level.

In modern life  very few employers have time and opportunity to send their employees to France to be trained to make a competent dessert menu with a full consideration of study of all the nuances and exclusivity elements. And business is constantly developing. As Lewis Carroll said,  “it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that.”

These golden words are relevant even for us – apart from inventing, creating and serving a dessert, you have to make it the best one.

Therefore, I offer my services, which will bring great benefit to you and your business.
