Justine Graziano is a pastry chef based in Paris. Her passion for pastry and gastronomy comes from her grandmother and mother. Since she was a child, she was helping them in the kitchen and was trying to create her own recipes. Very curious about the world, she first graduated from a business school and started her career abroad working in marketing. But her passion for pastry was so strong that after a few years she decided to change career and trained in French Pastry at the Ferrandi Culinary School in Paris. She gained experience working in various pastry maisons in Paris and then moved to Brazil to open a French high-end catering business. After running her company for 4 years and having organized more than 150 gourmet events, she came back to Paris to continue sharing her knowledge and passion for French gastronomy on her Context Tours. In between tours, she stays up to date with the new Parisian food scene and writes reviews on blogs.
