Christophe Adam is among the most eminent French pastry chefs of his generation. After studying under Laurent Jeanin, he rose through the ranks to become head pastry chef at Fauchon in 2001.
In 2012 Christophe Adam opened L’Éclair de Génie, a new and original pastry concept in the Marais district of Paris, where the star product is the éclair in numerous and original flavors. This was the beginning of a business that in a short time has conquered the world. Only six years later, in 2017, L’Éclair de Génie already has twenty shops and a dozen corners in Japan, Moscow, Milan, among other places.
Apart from leading this empire, the prolific French chef still has time to write pastry books, participate in TV Shows and open a restaurant called Dépôt Légal.
