Christophe Rhedon was born and grew up in Bourges, but went to catering college in Joinville le Pont, where he obtained his diploma in only 4 years instead of the usual 5! For 10 years he was a keen competitor, bringing home many 1st prizes, including the Sucre d’Art prize from the European Pastry Championships in Lyon 2003, but his most prestigious achievement was his being awarded the MOF (Best Craftsman in France) in 2007 – the youngest ever pastry chef to gain such distinction aged just 31.
Trained by some of the greatest names in pastry it is no surprise that the LENOTRE School snapped him up for their teaching staff, and he spent 7 happy years there teaching the art of chocolate, cake decoration, confectionary and of course, pastry, giving classes both in the school and across the globe.
Christophe then moved to MARC Bakery and Pastry as their consultant and executive chef, travelling extensively for them throughout the world. His most recent project was the opening of a pastry shop, ‘Notre Pâtisserie’ at 7 rue Amélie at the heart of the 7th arrondissement of Paris between the Eiffel Tower and the Esplanade des Invalides. Naturally, it was a great success and a new experience but insufficient to keep Christophe in one place for long. The world and its multiple inspirations are calling and there are people everywhere who want to learn from him and that includes London and here at TheTasteLab
