Laurent is Rococo’s Head Chocolatier. His first job was in a small Parisian family restaurant that gave him a perfect grounding in the classical French patisserie repertoire. He spent the next decade, working his way around the world.
Laurent moved to London in 2002 when he became Pastry Chef for a new restaurant group. In 2008 he joined Rococo Chocolates as Principle Chocolatier and ‘Prof du Choc’ in the School of Chocolate. Shortly after, Laurent entered two of his ganaches, ‘Tango’ and ‘Lychee Rose’, for The Academy of Chocolate Awards, where they were blind-tasted by his peers and both awarded Gold medals. More recently Laurent was voted Chocolatier of the Year after Rococo scooped 5 Golds in the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2011/12.
