“Transforming water, leaven, salt and flour into complex and varying flavours is my passion and I want to share and introduce it to other craftsmen around the world”
The new bakery and restaurant will be a celebration of all things artisan. The bread will be baked on site throughout the day and everything available to eat in the site or to takeaway will embody the baker’s rigorous approach to food.
