THE CHEF. Vincent Piette.
Since he was young, Vincent Piette has always followed his passion and after studying and taking many professional training courses he specialized in pastry and confectionery. He has worked for several renowned luxury hotels, restaurants and chocolate shops. When Vincent is not teaching and baking he spends his time at the Mill Marteau in Thuin in Belgium, where he is working on renovating and transforming the mill into a hotel and restaurant. Vincent was won over by UNOX and the many different ways that the oven can be used. He loves the idea of being able to put a signature to his culinary specialties. He would strongly recommend UNOX ovens to other chefs as it helps them create original and high-quality dishes, while guaranteeing perfect cooking results.
