At 14 Pierre Marcolini had found his vocation, at 19 he was a patisserie chef in charge of a team of patissiers, at 31 he won the World Patisserie Championship. With almost 40 prizes to his name, Pierre Marcolini’s obsession with taste has lead from one success to the next 2).

Belgian by birth but of Italian origin, he effortlessly combines northern discipline with southern spontaneity 3).

Marcolini also used an image of Maison Autrique by Schuiten for another box of chocolate.
