Born and raised in France, Chef Laurence moved to Toronto 5 years ago. She inherited her passion for cooking from her grandfather, who was a chocolate maker in the south of France.
Chef Laurence received an art degree and worked in the art industry for a while. She began her culinary journey in Toulouse, where she and her family owned a restaurant for eight years. She then worked alongside a Michelin star chef for a few years, and later landed a position as a chef in a 4-star hotel before moving to Toronto.
Toronto’s culinary scene inspired her to create recipes combining various ingredients and techniques. In 2016, she joined The Carbon Bar as a Pastry Chef, where she still operates. Most recently, Chef Laurence worked in close collaboration to launch a new project called Slice Baby Slice.
