I am Rafi Papazian, Pastry chef and Entrepreneur.
It will be in Asia, but where? I toured for 4months and when I had landed in Bali, this was it, a spritual island with beautiful people, artisans like me, taking time to make beautiful things, whom inspired me a lot: the first 2 years here I learned happiness from them and they learn baking from me. Monsieur Spoon is a fantastic human experience. Balinese knows how to be happy and for a Western guy, that's something inspiring! Back to the Bakery: While touring in Asia, I realised It seems very hard to get the proper Taste with the local conditions (weather, ingredients) but I was confident I could do it, so I had rented a small place in Bali, jl Umalas, which is now one of my 4 shops! where I had established my own kitchen, I have started to make Birthday and Wedding cakes and sold them very quickly with so much excitment and so many good feedbacks. After a couple of months I got the same feedback with my Croissants, Chocolatines and Apple Chausons. The neighbors started to discover the place which again, was just a kitchen! The experience was also exciting for my Cousin Greg who moved in with his 3 kids and wife! He devlopped the b2b and the marketing of the company.
