Marcel was a trained pastry chef and patiserie who trained in Switzerland. Following the second world war, he went to London and cooked for Winston Churchill.

Martha and Marcel Adam came to Australia to work at the Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme from Strasbourg, France.

They then came to Sydney and opened Du Plessy Pralin in Pymble in 1961 and pioneered hand-made chocolates.

Marcel passed away in 1979 and his son Paul took over the business. In 1988, we expanded and bought Otello chocolates of Mosman.

Since then, we have continued manufacturing cakes and chocolates including are well renowned after dinner slices.
