Patrice decided to follow his passion for cooking when he enrolled in the pastry program and the cooking program at École Hôtelière de Laval. By the age of 23 he was co-owner of restaurant Les Chèvres in Montréal. He really developed his style at that time; using fruit and acidity to develop balanced desserts where there’s never too much sweetness.
He then worked as Pastry Chef in restaurants in Montréal like Chez L’Épicier, Leméac, Laloux and Les 400 Coups. Patrice also wrote three books and had his own TV show ‘Les Desserts de Patrice’ for five seasons on Canal Vie Network. He opened in 2014, Patrice Pâtissier, his pastry shop where he can explore the retail side of pastry, one of his long time dream.
