We are so excited to learn that two of Walt Disney World’s very own pastry chefs were honored to be added to the list of “Top 10 Pastry Chefs in America”. The list comes from Dessert Professional Magazine. The chefs that were honored were Stefan Riemer and Olivier Saintemarie.

He joined Disney’s elite culinary team in 1999. He is part of the team that creates the pastry menus and brands for various restaurants, including opening new restaurants like Amorette’s Patisserie and The Ganachery, both located at Disney Springs.
Oliver Saintemarie is the executive pastry chef for the Chefs de France and other restaurants that are located at Epcot’s France pavilion in the World Showcase.
