Stephen Tranche, since joining Mandarin Oriental as Executive Pastry Chef in 2017, has constantly created playful sweet delicacies incorporating Japanese culture and Japanese ingredients. The cake named “Kumo (“cloud” in Japanese) ®”, which cages varying Japanese seasonal ingredients in an edible casing that resembles a floating white cloud, has enchanted the fascinated confectionery lovers in Japan with its adorable visual impact and light texture that melts easily in the mouth. Before his current job, Chef Stephen first worked as an apprentice to Pierre Gagnaire, a three-star chef, became Pastry Chef at Pierre Gagnaire à Tokyo, and had returned to Paris to work at various prestigious establishments including Hotel Plaza Athéné. The dolces created by the hand of Chef Stephen with this brilliant and world-class career behind him, are reminiscent of fantasy world of fairy tales and picture books, while backed by solid techniques.
