David Briand

Executive pastry chef, French craftsperson of the year 2019

BIOGRAPHY

After completing a “BEP” in Baking in 2004, David moved on to do a Pastry BEP, where he discovered his passion and vocation.
He then did a “BTM” diploma to improve his understanding of the subject. Once he had got his qualification, to perfect his skills, he opted to find out how they do things south of the border.

In Barcelona, he joined the prestigious team of Spanish Master Craftsman-winning Oriol Balaguer, gaining a fresh look on pastry and some solid experience in the process. After six years (two as Executive Chef), he decided to share his knowledge by joining L’École Valrhona as a Pastry Chef Instructor in 2014.

A member of the French team which made the final at the Mondial des Arts Sucrés in 2016, David was named a Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2019. Today, he is Executive Pastry Chef at l’École Valrhona in Tain l’Hermitage. 

Biography

After graduating from culinary school in Florence, Italy, Chef Bacherini went on to do his apprenticeship as a chocolatier. He began working in Michelin-starred restaurants across Italy and France until he decided to settle in Perpignan, France where he trained under Olivier Bajard (Meilleur Ouvrier de France).

In 2008 he moved to Paris, France where he worked at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée with French Pastry World Champion Christophe Michalak. Four years later, Bacherini left Paris for New York City, where he took on the role of Executive Pastry Chef at Nobu, managing three restaurants. While in New York, he also traveled the world to teach Pastry masterclasses in various countries, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Italy and France, as well as the United States. In 2017, he moved to Los Angeles where he taught pastry classes for professionals.

He also began his own consulting company, providing help to up-and-coming bakeries, pastry shops and restaurants. He helped create menus, improved production standards, did R&D to provide new menu ideas and solutions, in addition to creating recipes and training staff.
