Born in 1972 in Haberfield, Chris Thé has lived in Sydney all his life. To pay his way through university Chris worked as a kitchen hand and even as he was completing degree in psychology at Sydney University he knew his path lay in cooking and worked his way up to become pastry chef at Bel Mondo, Claude’s and Quay restaurant.

After a career in commercial cookery working at Claude’s and Bel Mondo, in 2008 Christopher Thé opened his own boutique patisserie in Newtown, Sydney, which has flourished and garnered critical praise. 

Chris is driven by a taste-up philosophy of food design rather than appearances and this can be tasted in every piece of deliciousness he creates.

Chris has recently retired from Black Star Pastry and is now focusing on his next adventure and taking the time to teach and share his knowledge to passionate pastry and dessert lovers.
