Vincent Vallée entered the world of pastry at a very early age, and by 15, was apprenticing with Chef Jean-Claude David, MOF. Shortly after receiving his pastry diploma, he was awarded the title of "Best Apprentice of Vendee, France." For three years he worked for chocolate master Patrick Gelencser, where he discovered the meticulous and rigorous work that chocolate requires. In 2011 he won second place in the Cabosse d'Or for chocolate sculpture, an experience that motivated him to take part in more competitions. Then, in 2015, he was the French finalist and winner of the World Chocolate Masters. He currently works at Patisserie Thierry Bamas and continues to share his expertise and passion for chocolate at conferences and demonstrations worldwide.
