Meet Michelle

Globetrotting pastry chef & food photographer

Began baking 9 years ago and professionally trained in French pastry in FERRANDI Paris, the most prestigious culinary school in France, I look forward to welcoming you in my favourite neighbourhood and sharing with you all the sweet secrets of Paris. As a qualified French pastry chef, I personally host each one of our food experiences. 


What happens in Paris stays in Paris...

One of my absolute favorite things to do in Paris. This is the one experience that anyone with a sweet tooth should definitely do in the city. If you appreciate the artistry that goes into making Parisian pastries you’re in for a lovely treat. Michelle is not only a joy to be around and the most amazing host, but her knowledge and passion are palpable and make the overall experience much more rewarding. She is very accommodating and goes the extra mile to remember all your favorite flavors and recommends things accordingly. You’ll feel like you’re with one of your closest friends.


MUST DO EXPERIENCE! Michelle has opened a door to understanding Parisian culture through the perfect combination of sweet bites and stories. This experience has let me into Michelle's magical world filled with cakes, pastries and macarons, on which she knows so much and generously shared her knowledge. Her background as a pastry chef plus the fact that she is really eager to share her connection to this world creates an experience that is not less than perfect. As a solo traveler I felt very comfortable, met like minded foodies and the small group was a perfect setting for making new friends.



If we've met before in Paris - thanks once again for choosing me. With the current Covid situation, I would really appreciate your support in order to keep my sweet little business going. You can help by sharing your experience with friends and families or writing me a short review on Tripadvisor. Merci beaucoup ❤
