Raised in Toulouse, France, Blouin began his pastry training when he was only 15 years old, working at a small bakery in his home town. He trained at the Pastry School of Muret and completed apprenticeships specializing in pastry and chocolate confections.

Blouin moved to America and worked at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resort hotel under two-time world champion pastry chef Laurent Branlard. Eager to expand his knowledge, Chef Blouin returned to Europe and worked at Michelin-starred restaurants in Switzerland and France.

In 2006, Chef Blouin returned to America to work at the Bellagio and Aria in Las Vegas under renowned chef Jean Philippe Maury.

With a passion for simple, strong and classic flavors, Chef Blouin move to the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas. Chef Blouin strives to create desserts that encourage diners to dive in and leave them feeling satisfied. His creations – featuring whimsical presentations and bold colors – may not be recognizable as something familiar at first sight, but they are instantly familiar at first taste.
