Baking News: Famed French Pastry Chef To Open First London Bakery

Paris’ premier pastry chef, Yann Couvreur, really is on a roll…

He’s been making his presence known in France for a number of years, having previously opened up three wildly successful patisseries in his home city, and now he’s popped across to London to show us what all the fuss is about! His planned residency is at Claridge’s Hotel in the heart of Mayfair, where he will be situated between the 4th and 11th of September.

We hope you’re hungry as he’ll be bringing his eclairs, tarts, and Paris Brest with him from France and Couvreur’s culinary creations are as aesthetically pleasing as they are scrumptious, might we add. Just a quick scroll through Couvreur’s lip-smacking Instagram feed has us eagerly awaiting the arrival of his bakery.

Whilst he is well known for his various sweet treats, the Paris Brest is believed to be his specialty. He is also an established confectioner and, in 2017, became a published author with his French cookbook La Pâtisserie de Yann Couvreur. As well as this, he also dishes out recipe hints on his Instagram page for signature treats such as the Paris Brest, though sadly yet unsurprisingly they are all in French – Ooo la la!

Although the rumours of the bakery’s opening will soon have all of London melting with anticipation, there is unfortunately no set date for the launch of the store. But, to comfort you whilst you wait, be sure to head down to Claridge’s next week and sample some of Couvreur’s acclaimed desserts. Guests will be in for a sweet deal when visiting the prestigious hotel during Couvreur’s week-long residency, as his pastries are included with Claridge’s Afternoon Tea, making for an extremely enjoyable day out.

Yann Couvreur we knead you in our lives! Watch this space…
