Marc Thuet and Biana Zorich are business partners and television personalities running a series of successful businesses, including Toronto's Petite Thuets, a growing chain of gourmet bakeries in Toronto. Overcoming a troubled youth to become one of the world's top chefs, Marc was born in Alsace, France, and is a fourth generation chef who has been working in restaurants since he was twelve.
After his initial apprenticeship in his uncle's kitchen, Chef Thuet moved on to some of the world's finest kitchens, including the Lycee Hotelier in Strasbourg, France, and London's Dorchester Hotel, where he spent three years under the tutelage of Anton Mosimann, official caterer to His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales.
The small and dated kitchen needed to be reinvented as a kitchen space for entertaining that could compliment chef Marc's culinary expertise. AyA Kitchens and House & Home's Reiko Caron redesigned and transformed a once tight space into this stunning eat-in kitchen. Removing the wall separating the kitchen from the dining area really opened up the space. The absence of upper cabinets helps to keep the room airy, while ample organized storage space is accommodated elsewhere with deep drawers, a pantry and pull-out for spices and bottles.
