First UK Maison Kayser restaurant and bakery opens in London

Related tags: Baking

The UK’s first Maison Kayser bakery has opened on London’s Baker Street today, just over twenty years after founder, baker, author and entrepreneur Eric Kayser opened his first site in Paris.

Styled as a “celebration of all things artisan”, the 60-cover London venue will house a restaurant, patisserie, and bakery. Alongside its changing restaurant menu, it will bake pastries and bread in-house all day, focusing on sourdough from a liquid natural starter and no commercial yeast.

It will offer sandwiches and pastries to take away, as well as eat in-house from 7am to 11pm every day.

From Alsace-born baker, author and entrepreneur Kayser, the group opened its first location in 1996, but has never before had a site in the UK. It currently operates over 100 bakeries across 21 countries, including France, Japan, the USA, and Singapore.

Commenting on his mission, Kayser said: “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.”

From a family of bakers, Kayser is credited with inventing the Fermento Levain machine with fellow baker Patrick Castagna – a machine that allows for the continuous use of liquid leaven in baking.
