Francois Payard
    
   
Francois Payard is a third generation French Pastry Chef born in Nice on July 16th, 1966. Francois cultivated his passion for the art of Pastry as a child in his grandfather's acclaimed shop, Au Nid des Friandises on the Riviera. He grew up surrounded by the delicious classic French pastry in the tradition carried on by his parents and grandparents for over fifty years.

   
     
    
After honing his skills in classic pastry by his family's side, Francois moved to Paris where he learned the artistry and refinement of transforming traditional desserts into exquisite plated presentations whose taste, texture and originality opened new horizons in his career. His dedication and passion earned him positions in several of France's finest kitchens. In 1988 Payard held his first position as Pastry Chef in Paris at La Tour d'Argent (***Michelin). The following year he went on to become Pastry Chef in the kitchen of Alain Senderens at Lucas Carton (***Michelin). In these renowned restaurants he met the challenge of creating dessert menus worthy of a three star Michelin rating.
