Born in Auvergne, Thierry Busset honed his craft at the hands of the masters, including notable chocolatier Bernard Sicard in Auvergne, and later at Pilati Patisserie in the Loire Valley. He was pastry chef at two three-star-Michelin restaurants in London: Le Gavroche (Albert Roux and Michel Roux Jr.) and Marco Pierre White. A lasting legend in many European pastry kitchens, his former colleague, chef Gordon Ramsay, called him “one of the finest pastry chefs in the world”.
Upon moving to Vancouver, Chef Thierry led the pastry programs at our two sister venues: CinCin and West, where his innovative approach to desserts, chocolates and breads, according to Vancouver magazine, saw him “widely regarded as one of North America’s finest pastry chefs”.
In the footsteps of his multiple-award-winning success with Toptable Group, the highly anticipated opening allows Chef Thierry to fulfill a dream of showcasing his art—and the science of patisserie—as maître pâtissier.
