Hi! I am Aleksandr Donskov, the author of Flashland. I have been making eclairs for more than 6 years. I started my pastry career in 2014. read a lot of pastry books, took master-classes and then practiced.
In December 2015 my wife, a few friends and I launched the very first eclair shop in our city. We started in very small kitchen with an oven for 20 eclairs. Later in April 2016 we moved to a 40-m2 shop. And later in 2017, we already worked in a 85-m2. In the same year I started teaching my own master-classes.
At the end of 2018 we finished a brand-new 330-m2 shop and produced 1000 eclairs daily. Now we have more than 40 employees. And we’ve already made more than 1,5 million eclairs!
I hope and believe that you can also rise to your heights. Good luck and welcome to Flashland!
