Frima helps Pretty Sweet stay on top

Acclaimed patisserie keeps on top with Frima’s advanced technology

Claire Clark MBE, co-founder of Pretty SweetFor Claire Clark MBE, co-founder of Pretty Sweet, patisserie is a science. “You need to be very precise about everything you do. Each step of the process needs to be the same every time, from measuring ingredients, to the temperature of the oven and the time it spends in there. Controlling everything is key to getting perfect results every time”.

Claire founded Pretty Sweet in 2014 with Sarah Crouchman. Between them they have worked at some of the finest restaurants in the world and have earned some of the industry’s highest honours. Claire was awarded the MBE in 2011 for her contribution to the craft, and was the first person in the UK – and the only female recipient – of the Meilleur Ouvrier de la Grande-Bretagne, France’s most prestigious professional award.
