"The beautiful Cortemillia is my favourite part of my Italian journey. The locals refer to it as the origin of the Piedmont hazelnut. Almost endemic, endearing and exotic, this city made me want to redefine the Paris-Brest. Paris-Cortemillia is meant to be round, subtle and soft.", says Jonathan Mougel, Chef Pâtissier- Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2019
