Christophe Michalak



To reach the top at the Plaza Athénée, this master pastrycook began by working in the greatest luxury hotels in London, Brussels, Tokyo and New York then honed his craft in such famous Parisian companies as Fauchon and Ladurée. Every day, Christophe Michalak now gives full rein to his desire to surprise people and take a new look at the great classics among cakes and pastries.

The Chef has designed dozens of mouthwatering treats such as the "religieuse" (cream puff bun) with caramel made with salted butter, peach melba macaroons and the eternally-loved Plaza Care Bears!
