The Chef Antonio Bachour
Antonio Bachour grew up in Puerto Rico and was hooked on a pastry from a young age, thanks to a childhood spent in his family’s bakery. He dedicated his first few years to honing his trade in Puerto Rico as a pastry cook at Sand Hotel and Casino and Westin Rio Mar. In search of a better place to continue growing professionally, 2001 found Bachour States-bound, in Miami Beach, as executive pastry chef at Talula. Pretty soon he was trying his hand at Italian delicacies at both Devito South Beach and Scarpetta in New York and Miami.
In 2009, Bachour was asked by KNR Food Concepts to be a part of the opening team at the W South Beach Hotel. Shortly after, he took over responsibility for all pastries for The Trump Soho hotel and its restaurants. In April 2011 Bachour trained in France with renowned chef Philippe Givre at L’ Ecole Valrhona and that same year he was selected as one of the “Top 10 Pastry Chefs” in America plus was a finalist in the 2011 International Chef Congress Pastry Competition.
