Aurélien’s natural talent was apparent, and he learned from the talented Chef Gérard Berranger, a Meilleur Ouvrier de France-distinguished Charcutier (the highest and most prestigious award in France in the food industry). There, Aurélien learned the technique and tradition of French charcuterie, steeped in history, with recipes passed down over generations. He mastered pâtés, terrines, galantines, ballotines, crépinettes and sausages, and also participated in many charcuterie competitions.
