About me …
My name is Danielle MAUPERTUIS, I am a Belgian Pastry Chef ( understand I was baptised in chocolate !) I am a tutor at the Vegetarian Society Cookery School and author of the vegan dessert cookbook “Vegans Deserve Better Than A Fruit Salad” Published by Olympia (on sale later this year)
I have worked for 5* hotels abroad and in the UK.
6 years in Greece as Pastry Chef for a chain of Belgian Pastry shops.
6 years in Lebanon as Executive Pastry Chef for the 5* Beirut Marriott hotel ( with daily electricity cuts, we prepared our 1st wedding banqueting by candlelight !)
5 years in the 5* Marriott Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire.
6 years for luxury Red Carnation hotels in London.
I have won several gold and silver medals in Culinary competitions.
More and more people suffer from a food allergy, follow an ethical philosophy, or are just concerned by healthy food options. The food industry proposes a very poor and disappointing alternative.
As a Pastry Chef, I have been seriously struggling to give our customers a decent choice. Until I decided to create my own range of “free from” desserts focused upon taste and presentation.
Challenge:They should look amazing and taste fantastic !
Inspired by classical recipes from Europe and the UK, they will find a place for every special occasion, birthdays, afternoon teas, plated desserts, petits fours …
I am sure you will enjoy…
