All the Presidents’ Pastries: Twenty-Five Years in the White House, A Memoir

From my beginning as a young baker’s apprentice in France to the grandeur of London; from the shores of Bermuda to the steps of the White House, I have had the privilege of serving my sweet creations to hundreds of thousands of guests from around the world.

I hope you will enjoy spending time on my website looking at pictures and reading a bit about U.S. Presidential history and life at the White House. To those of you who have followed my career since my first days in the White House, I thank you for your support and know you will enjoy looking through my gallery and reminiscing as much as I do. To all those aspiring pastry chefs out there, I hope my work and my career continue to inspire you in yours – what a wonderful industry we are gifted to work in!
