Churned out by the sweetest of parents, shaped by pastry chef Pierre Hermé, wholesome as a teenager melting for his one true love, butter-crazy Sébastien Gaudard faithfully takes patisserie to new heights. For him, appearances count, if only to break out of the mould of classic pastries and prepare the senses for truly sublime flavours. The pastry chef son of a pastry chef father, Sébastien Gaudard was born to love butter: every buttercup reflects yellow under his chin. All day long, le beurre graces his table: at breakfast, hiding under bread and honey; at lunch, softened in a dip for radishes; and at teatime – ah oui ! – in one of Grandma’s chocolate sandwiches!
