Born in Paris but bred in London, I am a Franco-British girl who more than occasionally pretends to be Italian too.
The name "Abigail's Dinner Party" makes reference to the play "Abigail's Party." It is born from my passion for theatre and my love of great food. I started writing it in the Tuscan mountains of Volterra where I was surrounded by incredible food experiences. I wasn't sure they would last.
As a teen I interned at several chocolate shops in London such as Melt and Cocomaya, I worked at Ottolenghi during university where I studied Drama and Italian Literature. After a couple of years in Venice, I went to Paris to do a formal pastry qualification. One pastry school led to another and a few years later, I was taken on by the Plaza Athenee, a prestigious palace on Avenue Montaigne where the pastry chefs are sugar wizards and taught me everything I know today.
I have recently returned to London and run a weekly patisserie stall called Le Choux! Come by to try our patisseries.
