A prodigy in his own right, Jacques achieved a remarkable feat at the age of 16 when he was awarded the coveted MOF (Meilleur Ouvrier de France) medal in Pastry, making him the youngest chef ever to receive this esteemed honor, a record that still stands today. Fueled by a profound passion for chocolate, he ventured to establish his own boutique, aptly named ‘Jacques Torres Chocolate’.

With her wit and charm, Byer then ventured into the world of web series, creating and starring in the UCB-produced gem ‘Pursuit of Sexiness.’ Not only does she bring laughter to screens, but Nicole Byer also shares her candid and empowering voice through writing.
