United Cerebral Palsy of New York City is honoring Devin Cutugno as the 2014 UCP of NYC Champion Award Recipient. Presented at the 13th Annual UCP of NYC Golf Event at Brae Burn Country Club.

In 2006, I made a documentary about the theme "sweets in New York". I was so happy when Roger generously opened his bakery's doors wide open to welcome me and my team. I remember the delicious aroma of freshly baked chocolate croissants and seeing the toasty bread coming out of the oven on the big rack. I remember roaming in the back kitchen with my camera while everyone was at work cutting up fruits and assembling eye candy treats, and thinking that these people are lucky to work here and that they must be happy than the rest of us that have stressed out fast paced jobs. 

Roger Bransol succeeded in bringing innovation, authenticity and high quality standards from France into the U.S and honored the craftsmanship of pastry and bread making. It was a privilege for me to have met him. 


This is an excerpt from a documentary hosted by Aymen Bourjini. The idea was to cruise with our knowledgeable and city-Savvy show host throughout Manhattan, New York, and discover the best eateries out there.
