Master Chef du Patisserie

As testament to his heart and skill, founder Olivier Leguet, La Bonne Bouchée’s former Master Chef du Patisserie, won the Champion of Dessert prize at 18. From there, he moved on to the kitchens of the Trianon Palace Hotel and Restaurant and a castle in the Loire Valley. In 1982, he traveled across the ocean, bringing his skill to La Bonne Bouchee of Saint Louis. In 2002, he assumed ownership of the restaurant and has continued to create beautiful pastries and cakes at La Bonne Bouchee for over 30 years.
