Morihide Yoshida is not afraid of anything, and certainly not of measuring his talent. After winning a major pastry competition on Japanese television – twice – he repeated the performance in France by competing on the show Meilleur Pâtissier: Les Professionnels (M6) in 2018, which he won – again!
But for this exceptional young artisan, the greatest reward was to get to open a pastry shop in world capital of the art of pastry in 2013, just near the **Invalides. After several stores already opened in Japan, he is now located a stone’s throw from Napoleon’s tomb, where he pays an imperial tribute to the art of French sweetness.
For Morihide, indeed, it is not about creating a Japanese revolution: he respects the most classical recipes of the French repertoire, which he enhances with his typically Japanese finesse, including a keen sense of precision and harmony. From pure butter viennoiseries to Paris-Brest, Opéra and other pastries, that first prize is well deserved!
