What is our story
Moving to Hong Kong from Switzerland and trying to adjust to everyday life we quickly found one big thing that we were missing. Going to the bakery for some delicious, fresh and crispy bread. Unfortunately, with Hong Kong’s humidity and the local style of baked goods, this was very hard to do. So how come one can occasionally get to taste outstanding crunchy bread in some high-end restaurants and 5-star hotels?
Our Swiss gourmet and bakery expert, who has been serving these restaurants and hotels for over 20 years explained the process to us and together with them we decided to bring the high-quality products to the everyday household of Hong Kong.
how does it work
It is quite a simple idea, store your bread in the freezer and only bake it crispy when needed. All of our breads are baked to 90% readiness, thereafter being quick frozen, kept and delivered in this condition. You can store your goods for up to one month in the freezer or up to a week in the fridge so you can just quickly finish baking them when you need to.
Thanks to this your bread will always come out tasting as if it was home made just a moment ago so you can always just bake as much as you need and store the rest.
what you need to know
order deadline / delivery schedule
We run on a weekly schedule unless there are special circumstances that we need to adjust to. Our order deadline is every Tuesday afternoon at 5pm sharp. We will then pass the final order on to the bakery and prepare all the deliveries.
Our driver will deliver the orders every Friday, just in time for Sunday brunch. We will usually send out more detailed delivery times and instructions on Wednesdays and will inform you if there are any changes to the delivery date.
Please note that we do not deliver to Discovery Bay, Lantau Island and the outer New Territories (we do deliver to Sai Kung and Clearwater Bay).
- To bake the goods, make sure they are defrosted either over night in the fridge or at room temperature for at least 2 hours (loaves) or 30 minutes (buns/rolls and pastry).
- Before baking the goods, lightly brush or spray them with a bit of water to make sure they come out crispy and delicious.
- Coat pastry goods in some egg yolk before putting them in the oven.
- Bake the goods at around 200°-220°C or 400°-430°F respectively for 10-12 minutes (loaves), 4-6 minutes (buns/rolls) or 15-25 minutes (pastry goods) depending on your liking of crispiness.
