Jamie’s Italian Bakery has now opened at Gatwick Airport’s North Terminal – his first airport location.

The bespoke ‘grab and graze’ bakery, which opened its doors on Monday (2 July) forms part of his new “restaurant area”, which also features a Jamie’s Italian and a Union Jacks Bar.

The Bakery, a first for Jamie Oliver, will offer a wide range of freshly baked items, including homemade pizzas, focaccias, sandwiches, cookies and brownies, as well as freshly prepared salads, fruit and yoghurts.

Bread will also be baked throughout the night, on-site, by trained bakers.

Oliver said: “Opening this restaurant in the airport is a new and exciting step to take. Whether you want to dine in the Italian, grab food for the flight from the bakery, or savour some good old Blighty grub before you jet off, this is something really special, just for Gatwick.”
