Episode 29: Abi | Le Choux

Launching a unique artisanal product into markets, Fortnums and Selfridges and the realities of working in a fast-paced, patisserie kitchen

Le Choux brings classical French patisserie to London with their unique offering of choux buns filled with a multitude of different flavours and topped with beautiful decorations. 

We spoke to Abi about how Le Choux came to life as she retells her tales of working around the clock to bring a super fresh product to market. We talk about why sourcing local ingredients is so important to Abi and discover what exactly makes a choux pastry. It’s fascinating to hear about Abi’s experiences with classical patisserie training in Paris and what it’s really like working in kitchens in London and Paris. Through these experiences, Abi has honed her craft and is keen to give back by providing internships for students in London.
