Chef Cristina Garcia Suarez

"By using Original Beans I can let my imagination run free and at the same time be sustainable and ethically responsible"
For Cristina, the patisserie is something special because it combines sweet and savory. Combinations with fish, seaweed, vegetables, or meat. Everything dipped into the world of sweet and chocolaty.

She learned from the best - Paco Torreblanca, Thierry Bhamas, and Nerua are only a few that inspired and helped her to grow into an exclusive dessert maker.
