Creation and innovation, two complementary work principles...

Jeffrey De Leon, Gourmet Baking candidate at the 2018 Masters de la Boulangerie.


Jeffrey draws inspiration from his American ‘melting pot’ culture. He loves to immerse himself in tradition and ethnic diversities to reshape them for current tastes. The ability to surprise his customers and play a part in bringing pleasure to their day gives meaning to his work. 

“To create and to innovate is to understand the limits and know how to go beyond them! Creating is a chance to free yourself from constraints. You can go to the outer reaches of your imagination. To innovate is to analyse and rationalise what you have imagined. These two principles, although different, are nevertheless very complementary.”
