About the Author

Roger Pizey is a celebrated baker and patissier with over twenty years’ experience at the cutting edge of cooking. He trained for two years with Albert Roux at Le Gavroche before joining the charismatic Marco Pierre White as his Chef Patissier. As Marco was becoming the first British chef to be awarded 3 Michelin stars, Roger was creating the groundbreaking desserts for his restaurants.

Roger developed his craft in some of the finest restaurants in London, including a period as Head Chef of the highly regarded Criterion Restaurant, before returning to his original passion and founding the bakery for Petyon & Byrne. There he created a classic selection of pastry offerings, both sweet and savory, reigniting interest in traditional pastry treats. He recently appeared on Hell’s Kitchen, demonstrating his superb pastry skills alongside celebrity chef Marco Pierre White.
