Mrs Audrey Gellet
Area of expertise
Having grown up in a family of food lovers from Burgundy, Mrs Audrey Gellet decided, at the age of 20, to terminate her History studies to get into pastry making. After earning an Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts, she worked at Maison Pic*** under the guidance of Philippe Rigollot (2005 World Champion and Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2007). After alternating stints in the Valence and Lausanne restaurants, she gradually climbed the ladder before becoming PIC group’s head of pastry making (Restaurant *** in Valence and ** in Lausanne, bistro, boutique, hotel) after the departure of her mentor.
In 2012, after 5 years working for Anne-Sophie Pic, she decided to take on a different challenge, which is how she joined EHL. She started in the Pastry Department of Berceau des Sens, and then, in September 2014, she switched to the Practice Pastry section as a Lecturer. In addition to working in restaurants, she has enjoyed preparing for competitions including the French national dessert championships, the International Confectionery Art Competition and the TV program broadcast on France 2 called “Qui sera le prochain grand pâtissier?” [Who will be the next big pastry chef?], which she won in 2013.
