This month, the affluent London neighbourhood around Fulham Road is to get its own French-style boulangerie and kitchen, called Orée.
Bringing a taste of the boulangeries and patisseries of rural France to west London, Orée will offer freshly baked Viennoiserie, artisan bread and fine patisserie, alongside a selection of breakfast dishes, salads and coffees.
Orée will also cater for those looking for healthier alternatives, with a range of gluten-free breads.
The company said in a statement: “Baking will be at the heart of what Orée does best. Boasting an in-house, glass-fronted 2.5 tonne deck oven and open boulangerie kitchen, all of Orée’s bread will be kneaded and freshly baked, daily, on-site.”
Executive head chef Sebastien Charrier and head bakery chef Olivier Malebrera have worked closely with renowned artisanal experts, from Nantes in France, using a selection of 20 specialist French flours to create a number of innovative recipes, exclusive to Orée.
Orée will serve 12 different types of bread, including rye, sourdough, buckwheat, Nordic and Japanese, as well as a seasonal bread of the month.
The patisserie counter will include croissants, pains aux chocolats and escargot aux pistaches, all made with traditional sourdough, as well as cannelés, flan, financiers, and kugelhofs.
More traditional British options, such as scones with jam and clotted cream and cheesecake will also be available. Charrier has also created a more unusual range that includes matcha & raspberry tea cakes, and lemon & yuzu meringue tartelettes, all of which will be baked daily on-site.
