She was invited to work at the local most popular restaurant-cave “Chez Erwan” where she soon replaced the head chef while the owner i focused on his favorite part of the business that was the wine trading.
After a few years of bistro cooking Anna realized that she needed a new challenge. She was offered a job in a 1 Michelin star restaurant in the touristic town of Chartre where she discovered gastronomic cuisine and decided to get a Master’s Degree in one of France’s most prestigious cooking school LENOTRE (Pastry and French haute cuisine). She found her new passion and obtained her degree with distinction.
Anna had the unique opportunity to work with several MOF winners (it’s the most prestigious award in French gastronomy): Jean-Michel Bannwart (delicatessen), Guy Krenzer (pastry), etc. At last, Anna put to practice what she learned working at “le Pré Catelan”in Paris, 3* Michelin for the world famous Chef Frédéric Anton.
