Born and raised in Switzerland, Gérard became the founder and owner of La Rose Noire Holdings…

In 1991, Gérard Dubois opened the first La Rose Noire Pâtisserie on Hong Kong Island – a 30 seats restaurant and cake shop – and in 2 decades, it has turned into a reputable enterprise. Today, La Rose Noire employs more than 200 staff members working at its original production centre in Kowloon Bay. In 2004 a 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art factory was opened in Dongguan, South China, with over 600 employees, while in 2012 the company opened a standard factory in Clark Free Port, The Philippines, and also “Passion by Gérard Dubois” Boulangerie – Pâtisserie – Confiserie” in Hong Kong. From an initial selection of 28 items, La Rose Noire now has over 500 varieties in its product brochure, fulfilling the needs of different sectors in the market. 

Gérard is also an author of culinary publications and his volume “Crafted Passion” (2011) was awarded for “Best Dessert Book in the World “at the 17th Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. This recipe is taken from that book.
