Roland Mesnier was one of nine children and grew up in the small village of Bonnay, France. He began his culinary career at age 14 as an apprentice. He was hired by First Lady Rosalynn Carter in 1979 and he was responsible for creating literally thousands of dazzling desserts for presidents, their families and state dinners through the George W.
