Jocelyn Bouzenard

Biography

Chef Bouzenard grew up working and learning in his family’s bakeries.  After studying economy and marketing he went to work at a mass production company. He learnt how to produce and sell products to superstore chains and wholesalers.  With all his experience in restaurants and bakery shops, he had been recruited by an international company to produce flaky products, choux products, genoise and lady finger.  Additionally he built transfer factories, created recipes and mass production chains. He continued in research and development and reached his goal by opening his own business to produce printed genoise sheets.

 

After regrouping all these experiences, he thought, it would be interesting to share all this knowledge. His first opportunity came in 2007 in a public school in France. Chef Bouzenard found teaching as his true passion. With the advantage of his bilingualism, he is hired by the world wide French famous ENSP, Ecole Nationale Supérieur de la Pâtisserie. He got the great opportunity to work with World Champion and M.O.F. pastry chefs. In 2012, he joined Le Cordon Bleu Paris in Ottawa to begin an international career in Canada. In 2016, he is hired by George Brown College and confirmed his position as an international teacher in this industry.
