Born into a family of nine children in the tiny village of Bonnay, France, keynote speaker Roland Mesnier discovered his vocation by accident on a summer day at the age of 12. He was an apprentice to his older brother Jean and began working at the local patisserie in exchange for room and board. His career has taken him from London's Savoy Hotel to the Hotel George V in Paris. He spent nine years at the Princess Bermuda Resort, Hamilton, Bermuda, where he met his wife Martha. He came to the U.S. in April 1976 as executive pastry chef at The Homestead, Hot Springs, Va. Hired in 1979 by first lady Rosalyn Carter, Mesnier became the first-ever non-American to serve in the White House, and would be its longest-tenured chef. Retired in 2006, he travels the world speaking, judging pastry competitions and participating in fundraisers.
