Christophe completed a five-year apprenticeship at a Michelin-starred restaurant, learning the ins and outs of the sweet and the savory, before traveling around France to gain experience working with renowned chefs.

During his first stop in Meribel, he fell in love with the art of making pastries — and the rest is history.

In 2021, Christophe won “U.S. Chocolate Master” at the World Chocolate Masters’ American semifinals in Chicago at age 36. Then in the fall of 2022, he competed at the 2021-22 World Chocolate Masters event in Paris, placing fifth overall.

Aside from chocolatier championships, Christophe is best known for showcasing his impeccable pastry skills on Netflix’s Bake Squad.

“When the casting team called and presented me with the show concept, I was really excited about the opportunity to create something for people,” Christophe said in an interview with FoodSided.

“In my opinion, it was not like a normal competition. It was more of an opportunity to showcase our skills individually. It’s a great show that focuses on the love of baking and family!”
