It only made sense for Valrhona to have established one of its business units in the HUB of creativity, innovation and talents in Dubai, United Arab Emirates – a land that boasts a thriving community united by their will to make a difference in a world of infinite possibilities.

With pride and excitement, Valrhona IMEA HUB is bringing two giants of the culinary scene – Pierre Hermé and Frédéric Bau – for an exceptional week of high pastry, innovation and expertise. The UAE is about to witness a gathering like no other – “la crème de la crème” – with international Cercle V Chefs coming from Morocco, Tunisia, Qatar, Oman, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait and the UAE for this extraordinary occasion.

Held at the SLS Hotel, in the center of Dubai Downtown District, Chefs, culinary experts and passionate will come together for “Café Confidentiel”– a morning talk show inspired event on Monday 14th February 2022, where Pierre Hermé and Frédéric Bau will share the principle of pastry (r)evolution with his latest book “Reasoned Gourmandise”.
