Conversation with Jean-François Adam – Pastry chef
Jean-François Adam was born in Briey just over 60 years ago. His rich professional career spans 44 years, and he has run his own business for almost 37 of them. His shop is just steps from the Saint-Epvre Basilica. He skillfully renewed the recipe for the cake of the same name, created in the late 19th century. He also offers Nancy specialties such as macarons and bergamot confections.
A bit of poet and a bit of a magician, Jean-François Adam smiles as he explains that between becoming a mechanic or a pastry chef, he chose a work environment that’s warm, clean and smells good. Joking aside, when you listen to him, you understand that J.F. Adam loves sharing good things, and that his calling, his childhood dream of being a pastry chef, has always carried him through.
