MAISON MITCHELL was conceived by W. Gabriel Mitchell, Creative Director and Executive Chef-Pâtissier, who brings to Hamburg “The Ladies”—a collection of gourmet pastries and life-style products that range from French-styled pastries to wedding cakes; confections to candles. Mr. Mitchell combines classic and modern techniques with inventive flavor pairings from around the world, creating an extraordinary gastronomic experience, while blending connotations of “sweet” and “savory.” As Creative Director, Mr. Mitchell employs his 16 years of experience in architectural design to oversee corporate branding. His role as Executive Chef-Pâtissier is supported by his 18 years as a classically-trained pâtissier working in New York, Paris, and San Francisco for such luminaries as Jacques Torres, Jacques Genin, and Pierre Hermé.
