David Mendes

David has over sixteen years of global experience, working with chefs such as Yotam Ottolenghi in Moscow and training in chocolate at the Valrhona Academy in France. David settled in London fourteen years ago where he has gained a wide array of experience in hotels, retail, catering, product development and fast-growing global restaurant chains, such as The Square, the Savoy, ZUMA, ROKA and Cocomaya.

Alongside Pastry, David’s other passion is teaching. After setting up a private pastry school offering private and group workshops, he gained extensive experience working with the GateWay project. Working with troubled teenagers and teaching them pastry and baking, they were able to enjoy a project outside the standard school curriculum and sell their homemade products. 

“I always thrive on developing products and creating something new.”
