Marc began baking when he was 16 simply because he loved bread and everything about it. After graduating from an accredited three-year artisanal bread-baking training and apprenticeship institute, Marc honed his craft at several traditional Parisian boulangeries.
He believes that good bread happens only when fresh, natural ingredients of the highest quality are blended with an understanding of bread chemistry—and craft. But Marc says that the magic of the bread doesn’t happen until a skilled pair of hands readies it for the oven at precisely the right moment.
