Calling: a strong inner impulse toward a particular course of action in one’s life. At a very early age, Yannick knew his calling. Born in Colmar, France to a second-generation Baker, Yannick’s father instilled the foundation and traditional French culinary concepts which are alive and well in La Colmar’s kitchen. “La Colmar’s purpose is to transcend you to a time period where quality meant more than quantity, said Yannick.”There is an art to French baking traditions. To some, the meticulous details are intimidating. For Yannick, it is second nature. To embody his family’s culinary methods to nourish the bodies of his customers today is a dream, a real American dream.
