“I am now working on funny cakes for children. People tell me I look like Mr. Bean, so I want to put Mr. Bean’s head on a Spiderman body – a Spiderbean cake!"(01)
I found them all superb, even compared with many boutique bakeries Bali and Jakarta has. And Denis is able to sell them at the fraction of its usual cost elsewhere.
"He claims there is no reason for customers to pay a high price, as his costings are realistic and he is making a profit selling individual tarts and pastries like his famous Mille Feuille for under Rp. 8,000." (01)*
Denis loves watching people choose the bread, smell it and especially watching Indonesian customers taking a chance on something new. With almost 30 years of baking experience, Denis's creations are everything but boring. While he loves to experiment with new creations, his deepest passion however is to recreate traditional French cakes from his childhood.
"But the things I like most to make are the traditional ones, the ones I liked when I was a child, like éclair au chocolat chouquette mille feuille. I want to show people that simple can be beautiful, and when I manage to reproduce what I liked as a child, the customers go for it."(02)
