Claire Heitzler started her training in a general culinary school before specialising in pastry with Relais Desserts Pastry Chef Thierry Mulhaupt in Strasbourg.
To go further in her training, she joined the team at the Troisgros restaurant in Roanne (3 Michelin stars) as assistant pastry chef. She subsequently joined Georges Blanc’s restaurant team in Vonnas and Jean-paul Abadie’s in Lorient.
In 2003, Claire wanted to discover the world and became pastry chef in L’Oranger restaurant in London. One year later, Chef Alain Ducasse asked her to become the pastry chef of his restaurant Beige Alain Ducasse in Tokyo, Japan. She stayed there for 3 years and then joined the Park Hyatt hotel in Dubai as executive pastry chef managing the pastry menus for the 10 restaurants in the hotel. Head-hunted by the famous Ritz hotel in Paris, Claire returned to France to work as pastry chef alongside Chef Michel Roth. In 2010, she joined Lasserre restaurant in Paris as their pastry chef. She became famous thanks to her “Séquence Sucrée”, an audacious menu dedicated to pastry, using fruits and vegetables and respecting the traditional hierarchy of a menu. In 2016, she became the creative director at Maison Ladurée, where she worked on giving a more modern touch to their pastries by working on quality, seasonality and profitability for their pastries sold in France and abroad.
