Like many, Carl Marletti got interested in pastry since his youngest age: his grandfather was a pastry chef and baker. Carl started to work at the Grand Hotel Intercontinental in Paris in March 1992. He soon took the lead of a team of 23 people in the restaurant of the Hotel Place de l'Opéra, the famous “Café de la Paix”. 

In 2007, he opened his first shop in the heart of the 5th district of Paris, at the bottom rue Mouffetard, only 10 minutes from the Foodist, a warm and inviting area of which he says “It is no coincidence I settled here !”
