Passionate about restaurants and pastry for many years, Patrice decided in 1999 to enroll in cooking school. After his training in pastry and in professional cooking, he worked for more than 15 years in some of Montreal best restaurants, creating desserts where fruits and acidity play an important part and where sugar never dominates.
In 2014, he opened his own pastry shop: Patrice Pâtissier near Atwater Market in Montreal where he creates desserts using local and seasonal ingredients. Besides serving lunch and brunch, Patrice also gives pastry classes in the evening.
Because he loves to share his passion for pastry, Patrice has published 3 books and has been hosting a t.v. show "Les Desserts de Patrice" for 5 seasons on Canal Vie. Some of his recipes have also been published in magazines like "So Good" and "Fou de Pâtisserie". He's also been invited twice to Paris to gives demonstrations at the Omnivore Food Festival.
