“It’s not always easy to be a woman, – but the ones who make it come out stronger, with more character. There’s a lot of people in the kitchen, you need to have a commanding personality – you need to impose yourself, and sometimes, you even need to be arrogant – it’s part of the role.

In the end it doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman. What matters is that you understand the pleasure and joy you can create with a pastry. That’s what will inspire your passion.”
