Engaging Mayumi Nagata has been an excellent investment for Queen St Patisserie, she instilled confidence the moment I met her along with inspiration for my business. She focused on our strengths, and we built from there.

Mayumi did not mess about she pulled her sleeves up and got on with the job. She immediately recognised where she was needed. Having just lost our head pastry chef we needed Mayumi to get us up to speed on making croissants as our reputation was reliant on it. She adjusted our recipes and gave us all the tips on laminating, resting, rolling and storing. Mayumi also improved all our pastry techniques, to include puff, savoury, sweet and flaky.

For me professional help is money well spent. There is no doubt Mayumi is one of the best. She knows it all. QSP has flourished and I do not believe we could have done it without Mayumi.
