Benjamin Bio PicWhat better way to demonstrate how Empire Bakery Equipment can help build your dream bakery than to allow you to get up close and personal with some of the equipment at the show? And so “Dream Builder’s Bakery” was born! Behind the counter whipping up the delicious breads and pastries will be one of the world’s youngest Master Bakers, Benjamin Auriau.  Joining us directly from France, Benjamin has already been showered with many degrees and achievements at such a young age. He earned his degree in Bread Baking 2013, degree for Pastry Chef 2015 and became a Master Baker this year at only 23 years old!  Chef Benjamin was honored with an invite to the Elysée Palace to present the festive pastry, “Galette des Rois” to French President Francois Hollande.  Impressive for sure!  But what can you expect – as the nephew of renowned Master Baker Didier Rosada, baking is in his blood.  So you can imagine how excited we are to have Chef Benjamin manning the helm in the “Dream Builder’s Bakery” at Empire’s Booth #2235 and baking delicious artisan breads, flatbreads pizzas, cookies and more.  Be sure to stop by often to see what amazing creations Master Baker Benjamin Auriau is baking up next!
