My name is Olivier and I am a 40 year-old Software Engineer with a passion for food. Back in Europe, I was working as a software architect in Paris but my love for cooking, especially for baking, was getting stronger by the day. Eventually I took the big leap: I decided to get professionally trained at one of the best Parisian hotels, the Ritz Hotel. The experience was so overwhelmingly positive that there was no coming back! Albeit not an easy dream to fulfill, opening my first bakery in the US was the vision I shared with my family and friends. With their support and my wife Nathalie’s invaluable help, we landed in New York City with our toddler Timothée and baby Hippolyte in the spring of 2011 and opened Mille-feuille Bakery. In less than 18 months and thanks to great reviews from prestigious outlets like the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, we expanded from our initial small kitchen on Laguardia Place in the Village to a new and bigger one in Brooklyn. In June 2014, we opened our second location on Broadway between 76th and 77th streets to bring our goods closer to you.
This is our story. Please come and meet us, and enjoy our delicious baked goods with our freshly brewed La Colombe coffee. A bientôt!
