Passionate about baking from his earliest childhood, at the age of 16, he started as a baker-trainee within the family business “Boulangerie SALAT”, in Auvergne, France. After his graduation in 1991, he went to Aurillac for 3 years to extend his knowledge and skills in pastry-making and cookery, before coming back in his hometown and taking control “Boulangerie SALAT”, as Baker then as Manager.
For 4 years, Olivier Magne developed a 100% organic sourdough bread range, which was sold at BIOCOOP, a leader in organic food distribution.
In 2000, he got a bakery diploma which will allowed him to teach and convey his passion for 5 years at the French School of Bakery, Pastry and Cookery of Aurillac, created by Christian Vabret MOF, then for 8 years at the National Baking and Pastry-Making Institute of Rouen, internationally well-known for its expertise in training and consulting.
In 2015, Oliver Magne won the title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France (baker), which completely changed his life. Since then, he has been traveling around the world, passing on his baking know-how during the courses.
Currently, he is also running the Farine & O bakery in Paris, where he is making the bread based exclusively on the natural sourdough and long fermentation (up to 72 hours for some types of dough).
