ORIGIN

Hailed by the Guide des Croqueurs de Chocolat on the Top 25 List of Chocolate Makers, Chef Sebastien, honed his craft through deep family tradition of 4th generation chocolate making. Shaped by the culture of his family’s Chocolatier Beline Boutique, Chef Sebastien went on to further his craftsmanship at the famed La Patisserie Ladurée, earning him respect and renown, as a world class purveyor of fine luxury chocolates. Joining the Astor family, a 3rd generation family owned chocolate manufacturer, was a natural blend given their mutual focus on quality, precision, attention to detail, and most importantly pride.

PERSONA

Perfection and Humility

As someone who strives for perfection, Chef Sebastien has always stood out for his notably balanced flavor profiles and appreciation for subtle details. Most striking of all is his humility - in a world full of ego, Chef Sebastien is in a class of his own. A great listener and believer in others, perhaps it’s no wonder he’s been able to consistently achieve perfection.

DISCOVERY

With his penchant focus on craftsmanship and authenticity, Chef Sebastien will make it his mission, travelling until he discovers the perfect ingredients that will bring life to his vision. He understands that a product is only as exquisite as its ingredients, and nothing that leaves his hands is less than extraordinary.

TRENDS

Trends are not just about a face-value representation, it is having the deep understanding of the harmony between chocolate, its environment and its capability to transport and transcend. As such, Chef Sebastien believes in evolving with the trends, bringing to fruition his masterful pieces of chocolate art.
