Patrick Roger was born in 1968 in Poislay, a village of 80 people in the Perche in Normandy, France. There, and at school, he did not feel challenged. When Patrick turned 15, he started learning pastry at Maurice Boulay. A rebel at heart, Patrick ended up at the chocolaterie as a punishment. It was a revelation: chocolate became his true passion and pushed him to go past his limits and push himself like never before. He received 1st place at the National Romorantin Contest, and shortly after won the Grand Prix du Chocolat. In 2000, he earned the most prestigious title he could dream of: Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF) de Chocolatier.
Currently, he owns and operates his chocolate shop “Patrick Roger” in Sceaux, close to Paris, where his delicious chocolate creations meet his master sculpture pieces, which are true technical achievements. Patrick Roger has exhibited his work in France and abroad: at the Biennale de Montreux in Switzerland, at the Rodin Museum in Paris for its grand re-opening, at Christie’s in France and at the 21_21 design Sight in Tokyo. He has also written and edited many books on his work as a sculptor.
