Nicolas knows the business well, and is a consultant who wants nothing more than the best for his clients.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are the topic we can cover?

We can cover a wide range of topics depending your needs. I recommend you to have specific points ready in order to be more efficient and addressing each issues at a time. In one hour we can not go over all the topics, this requires several sessions. If you don t have any particular theme, we can go over technology together.


How do I schedule my appointment?

Upon purchasing coaching, you'll receive further instructions on how to book a time for your appointment.


Can I purchase coaching more than once?

Absolutely! If you find yourself in need of consulting more than once, simply purchase the consulting again or the long term plan...


How does it work?

We will have zoom meeting where we will go through the points we decided together, I like to use mind map and to built it as it goes, after the meeting ends, I add information s to the mind map and I send it to you as a PDF file. When we have our second call we can build on that or we can start another topic.

I like to give you as well any supportive documents needed or ressources which will help you to achieve what you are looking for!


Can you give me all your recipes?

I am always happy to share my recipes and knowledge, but the consulting and coaching calls are not the place for that, as a recipe alone, without informations and details is useless! If you only want professionally recipes which are tested tenth or hundreds of time before being released and explained, I advise you to go on my subscription plan. You will have access to all the content of my school, and added recipes every two weeks or more often.

Here it is the place to do it together!

- to learn how to formulate your own recipes or

- to find together a new taste profile,

-a new idea to improve the production,

-a new way to have a better result

-or simply getting more informations, more details and more ideas of declination on my existing recipes across the courses!


I am enrolled in your online school, how is it different than the monthly Q & A?

The consulting and coaching is taylor made to you and specific to your needs!

The Q&A monthly session is a group session where we will address the general theme on pastry and chocolate, related to the courses on the school, a nice way to interact all together! I won't talk about marketing, production implementation or concept design during the Q&A as those needs to be addressed on 1 to 1 consulting.

I would say both are different and useful to improve your pastry game!
