Our founders have a combined experience of decades in the Patisserie and Confectionery industry, having built and sold many successful patisseries on a number of occasions.
Our Master Pastry Chef (Khalife), Matews, has been a pastry chef since 14 years old and is the celebrity pastry chef for international TV Station, Manoto TV. Some videos of him can be found here https://www.youtube.com/user/
We are finalising the details as we prepare to launch our new North London Patisserie and online store, Sweet Emmanuel (insert web address), where customers can enjoy a drink or fresh made delights in store or order them online to be delivered to enjoy at home.
While preparing the business we noticed an opportunity for us to help out our community and give back. With many people struggling to find work, and some looking to supplement their income with home businesses, we knew we could offer people the opportunity to learn a skill to a professional standard quickly and affordably.
So we set up the Sweet Emmanuel School.
