Emmanuel 'Gus' Reckel, GE 1997, Owner & baker, L'Imprimerie, New York

As Emmanuel, he graduated from Audencia’s Grande Ecole Master in Management programme and pursued a career in investment banking. As Gus, he learned to bake at the French Culinary Institute before opening his own bakery, L’Imprimerie, in Brooklyn, New York. If you can’t make it to the Big Apple, check out his Instagram account here: https://www.instagram.com/limprimerie/

His bearded outline and his part cranky, part rebellious attitude fascinate. Gus Reckel’s outspokenness is a cocktail of Gallic diehard and Wall Street wolf that is necessarily explosive and necessarily intriguing. The result is inimitable and delicious. In the microcosm of “converts”, i.e., those bakers who came to the profession late in life, Gus, the former trader, is a bit of a hero and role model, even if he denies it, preferring his freedom and the right to follow his own path.

L’Imprimerie (The Print Shop) is the name of his bakery nestled in the heart of Bushwick, on the edge of Brooklyn. Gus makes the best pain au chocolat in New York, but he’s not after trophies or fame: Gus has a taste for a job well done. Period!
