Want China Times
A 29-year-old Taiwanese pastry chef has received an offer to work at the Elysee Palace in Paris
next month after a month and a half internship there, the United Daily News reported Sunday.
Hsing Lun-yi, who returned to Taiwan for a brief visit recently to get engaged, will be the first Taiwanese ever to work at the official residence of France’s president, the Chinese-language newspaper said.
Hsing found his passion for desserts only after graduating from Nan Ying Vocation High School’s Department of Data Processing in Tainan.
He began working part-time at Taiwanese restaurants and then saved NT$1.5 million (US$48,750) on his own to pay for studies in France, the report said. [FULL STORY]
