The husband and wife team behind this sweet-lover’s dream, Chef Pâtissier Richard Le Deunff, originally from the North of France, and his passionate wife Sophie, together want to bring the tastes of Paris to the Gold Coast. Literally translated to “educate your palette”, Aux Fine Bouches does just that—it is a lesson on food mastery.
