Author(s): Rodolphe Landemaine
Originally from Mayenne, Rodolphe Landemaine completed apprenticeships for his two professions of baker and pastry chef with Les Compagnons du Devoir et du Tour de France. To perfect his knowledge, he then joined the teams of renowned restaurants - Laduree in Paris, working alongside Pierre Herme; Paul Bocuse in Lyon; the Parisian gourmet restaurant Lucas Carton; and even the Bristol Hotel in Paris. In 2007, he and his wife Yoshimi opened the first of their Maison Landemaine bakeries, in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, before expanding into the other quarters of the capital. Today they have twelve bakeries in Paris, as well as a bakery and baker training school in Japan.
