La Brioche Patisserie is located in the historic Fondren District at Fondren Corner in Jackson, Mississippi, focusing on petits gateaux, breakfast pastries, entremet cakes, sweet and savory, petits fours and confectioneries.
Alejandra Sprouts and Cristina Lazzari, both from Rosario, Argentina have traveled to different countries in Europe and South America throughout their lives. Their travels left them with a vision of fusing the different cultures through pastries.
Alejandra completed L’Art de la Patisserie program at the French Pastry School in Chicago, Illinois under the teachings of Chefs Jacquy Pfeiffer and Sébastien Canonne, M.O.F. She also finished a six month internship at the school where she had the opportunity to work under master bakers and world renowned chefs. She has gained experience through working and staging at various hotels, restaurants and bakeries in Chicago, IL. She values the importance of using quality ingredients as well as seasonal ones, which is an important characteristic for confections at La Brioche.
Living in Miami and traveling often from Sweden to her husband’s home in Southern Italy, Cristina developed her palate for fine pastries and a well-made coffee. Eventually she moved from Miami to Sweden to complete her studies in horticulture. After getting married she and her husband moved back to the USA and made Jackson, MS their home. She complements this experience with having worked many years in coffee shops and pastry shops in Europe and in the U.S.A.
La Brioche is delighted to bring Jackson the world through artisanal pastries.
