HADRIEN VERRIER

Chef and Founder

Hadrien Verrier was born and raised in the suburbs of Paris. He was introduced to cooking by his mother and grand-mother who made him peel the vegetables, despite his protests at family Sunday brunch. His enjoyment for cooking led him to begin his career at the Ecole Superieur de Cuisine Française Gregoire-Ferrandi, Paris.

He refined his skills by working at bakeries and prestigious restaurants in France. After years of dedication and hard work in this industry, he decided to move to Toronto for a new experience. He had the opportunity to work in a few restaurants in Toronto such as Colette Grand Cafe at the Thompson Hotel or Michael's on Simcoe near King and University street.

Hadrien is passionate about French pastries and It is for this reason, he founded Hadrien Pâtisserie in 2017.
