Several years later, she would train as a jewelry artist and become an expert at it, eventually creating her own brand. The connection between jewelry and high-end gastronomy might surprise some. However, both worlds share a love of precision, a need for knowledge transfer, and a passion for aesthetics. And so Aurore joining La Maison Hubert is perfectly in line with her experience and skills, helping position our brand worldwide.
