Bangkok, Thailand, 2010/12/29 - Sweet tooths will rejoice that the Siam City Hotel, Bangkok, has newly welcomed the arrival of pastry chef extraordinaire, and former Le Cordon Bleu teacher, Jean-Marc Breney.
Those of you who like pastries will rejoice that the Siam City Hotel, Bangkok (part of Siam Hotels & Resorts), has newly welcomed the arrival of pastry chef extraordinaire, Jean-Marc Breney. He is now cooking up a daily dose of delectable treats for the hotel's numerous dining outlets – Patummat, Bakery Café, City Lounge and Primavera – along with supplying personalised goodies for in-house weddings, banquets, parties and functions.
Born in France, Breney’s passion for manipulating sugar into stunning creations has been with him since he was young. Breney began his formal culinary training by gaining a Professional Aptitude Certificate (CAP) and Brevet d'Etudes du Premier Cycle (BEPC) as a pâtissier (pastry chef). He then went on to gain a Formation Center Apprenticeship (CFA) from L’Ecole Jean Ferrandi, widely regarded as one of the leading pastry schools in France. Here he developed a strong foundation in classical techniques, which nowadays serve as the anchor for his creative pursuits.
Upon graduation, Chef Breney embarked on an acclaimed local and international career, honing his expertise at numerous Michelin star establishments, such as the L’Estournel, Taillevent and Le Doyen, before going to work for the Sofitel group in France, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Bahrain. In the ‘90s he even stepped into the classroom at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, teaching students the finer points of making French pastries.
Luckily for us, Breney is now calling Bangkok home and tantalising guests, locals and staff alike with his divine creations. Whether it's an éclair, croissant, chocolate mousse, macaron, petit fours, lemon meringue pie or elaborate croquembouche, his culinary masterpieces never fail to look good and taste even better! As Breney is fond of saying: "My goal is to always use the best techniques and produce to create desirable and on-trend desserts. Inviting, classy, abundant and eye-catching are the key words of my pastry and such is my challenge every day. Welcome to my sweet universe!"
Why not indulge in some of Breney's fine work any time of day in the Garden Pavilion at the Bakery Café, enjoy a leisurely high tea in the City Lounge or sample as much as you like at Patummat, during breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet services. If all that wasn’t enough, Breney’s cakes are also available to take-home for special occasions to enjoy with family and friends (please order three days in advance).
