Jacques Always Loved Cooking
Jacques was born and brought up in a small town in France. His father was a craftsman.
He said he knew he would never be a craftsman like his father. At fourteen, he worked in a kitchen for free, per his brother's advice.
He then realized that he wanted to become a pastry chef.
Competing In Pastry Competition For The First Time
Torres worked under one of the finest pastry chefs. While working in such a demanding kitchen, he learned to raise high standards in his work.
He found out about the pastry competition while working. He said he was 20 years old and was very arrogant and competitive at that age.
The competition was one of the highest honors in France, which takes place once every three or four years.
Chefs from all over the country participate in the competition, and the best is chosen.
He trained for months under the best chefs in the country to prepare himself for the competition.
The theme of the final was Easter in Blue. He got into the finals and won the competition. He was the youngest chef to receive that honor.
Torres Was Rebellious When He Was Young As A Chef
Torres wanted to start his own pastry business, but he needed money to start his business, so he started working as a pastry chef.
Torres was offered a salary of $70k per year at Ritz-Carlton but was paid $50k a year.
When he confronted them, the head of the Department of Food and Beverages told him to either go back to his country or move to Atlanta.
He was not happy with how they treated him, but he stayed there and promised to take revenge on the food beverage director one day.
After some time, a young chef offered him a job at his restaurant. He worked at Ritz-Carlton for six months.
Torres joined the young chef and started working with him.
The team of Ritz-Carlton heard about what Jacques was doing in another restaurant, so they went to have dinner where he was working.
He wanted to show them what he was capable of doing.
The team was so impressed with his work that they asked him to return to Ritz-Carlton, but he refused. He said it was his revenge on them.
Jacques Talked About How A Chocolate Chip Cookie Should Be Made
Jacques said the chocolate chip cookie is an American pastry rather than a French one.
He sells around 6 to 8 thousand cookies weekly in his chocolate factory. He said everyone loves chocolate.
He said the ingredients are most important than techniques. He uses high-fat butter to enhance the flavor.
He mixes white and brown sugar and adds egg and a little vanilla. He balances the mixture of bread and cake flour.
He never used baking chocolate. He said after making the dough, he bakes them the next day.
