More about Céline....
I started in the hospitality sector when I was 15 and attended a catering school in France for 5 years.
During my studies I had the opportunity to work in Canada, which was a great experience. I was doing service and cooking however I already knew that I wanted to work behind a bar as I wanted to be in contact the customer and also to be creative.
After my studies, I decided to visit Europe so I travelled around Italy and Greece in a van. I started working for the first time as a bartender on a Greek island. When I went back to France, I wanted to study more deeply bartending so I did a training in a Bartending school and cocktail bar. It taught me all the bar rules, classic cocktails and most of the skills I needed to work as a competent bartender.
I still wanted to discover other countries so I left for Mexico, backpacking for a few months. I learnt a lot about spirits (mezcal and tequila) and the Mexican culture. I then made my way to New Zealand as I wanted to work in an English speaking environment and decided to settle down for at least a year. I am currently working in a 5 star hotel – the SO/Auckland – as a bartender in one of the busiest bars in Auckland and I plan to go and work in South America for my next experience.
