Our Breads, Pastries & Treats
We don’t just use any flour for our French breads. Ours comes from the best wheat in France. It’s supremely fine. And, when used in our unique recipe, it makes bread that’s open and light with a delicately crispy crust. Flour is fine. Ours is exquisite – and it makes French bread like no other.
Flaky rather than crumbly, light yet not flimsy, moist but never heavy… There’s an art to making pastry in the noble tradition of French viennoiserie. We like to think we’ve perfected that art, and given it our own unique Cuisine de France twist.
Most blueberry muffins only have bits of blueberry in them – ours have whole blueberries, and big ones at that. We mix them in with our creamy yoghurt muffin base, and the result is utterly scrumptious, with coffee or without.
NEW and Available Now!
Our new addition to the range of Cuisine de France breads is a sourdough bloomer made from a Mother Dough which is unique to Cuisine de France bakeries. Nurtured over a period of 20 years, this is the secret ingredient to this amazingly soft and crumbly loaf.
Research has shown that the slow fermentation process of the yeast during the baking of sourdough is beneficial to the digestive system – breaking the stereotypical negative impression of white bread!
This Sourdough Bloomer can make even the most humble ingredients into a high quality sandwich and is the perfect accompaniment to soup or toasted to make an amazing bruschetta!
Le Parisien Rustique Baguette
The most French that a bread can be!
Le Parisien Rustique French baguette is made from the highest quality ingredients, benefitting from unique slow fermentation and stone baked finish, creating a light airy bread with a delicious golden crust. Tear and share, butter or don’t….the choice is yours!
There is also a demi-rustique baguette available for those with a slightly smaller appetite!
Le Parisien White Baguette
Classically French… yet utterly unique
Not all French breads are born equal. Le Parisien from Cuisine de France is born of a unique recipe that is ours and ours alone. There is no other like it. We insist on using the finest wheat grown and milled in France. Only French wheat gives us flour with the fineness we need to craft a bread that is distinctively crispy on the outside; light and open on the inside; and utterly delicious. It’s a classic in the French tradition.
French meets Italian with our scrumptious Baguetti Bolognaise recipe.
Le Provençal Wholemeal Baguette
A balance of both
You could say Le Provençal is the country cousin of Le Parisien. It comes from the same excellent stock – namely, a unique recipe based on our finest flours. But there is a crucial difference: half of the flour is wholemeal flour. That makes Le Provençal an excellent source of fibre. So while lovers of Le Parisien will recognise the distinctively crispy crust, light texture and delicious taste, they’ll enjoy the added benefit of wholemeal flour.
La Rustique Multiseed Grain Baguette
Absolutely bursting with seeds and grain…
We don’t believe in doing things by halves. Where others merely sprinkle the seeds over the top of the dough, our La Rustique baguette has seeds and grains mixed throughout. In fact it’s bursting with three kinds of seed – sesame, linseed and sunflower – making it the perfect bread for today’s balanced lifestyle. But it’s not just about goodness, it’s about taste – and once you try it, you’ll be captivated.
L’Artisane Artisan Baguette
Crafted from a mother dough that’s unique in the world
Time is one of the key ingredients in each of our distinctively shaped artisan baguettes – over two decades, in fact. That’s because each lovingly-baked baguette is made using a unique mother dough. This living source guarantees the unique flavour of each hand-cut baguette. Meticulously crafted to deliver a distinctively crispy, chewy crust and open, aerated texture, it’s supremely enjoyable.
Use L’Artisane for a tasty Pesto & Tomato Meltzarella snack.
A traditional bread for a modern sensibility
There’s wisdom in tradition, and some breads are best made the old-fashioned way. Our Wheaten Loaf is from an Irish recipe created back in 1939 that includes coarse and stone-ground flours as well as fresh Irish buttermilk. The result is a delicious wheaten bread that’s yeast free, high in fibre and naturally low in fat.
Triple Grain Demi
Just because it’s a demi-baguette doesn’t mean it’s short on flavour. Our Triple Grain Demi is bursting with grainy goodness too, thanks to the linseed, sesame seed and kibbled rye generously mixed throughout.
Four Cheese Loaf
A unique bread made with Red Leicester, Regato, Gruyere and mature White Cheddar – like a cheeseboard in a loaf.
A distinctive French baguette that’s perfect with a dollop of butter, as a dipping bread, or even as the basis for a rather refined sandwich. Dollop it, dip it or dress it up… you decide!
White Vienna Loaf
A light crumb and crisp crust make our Vienna loaf exceptionally appetising and a delicious meal accompaniment.
Poppy Vienna Loaf
Poppy seeds impart a wonderfully nutty flavour to our distinctive take on a Viennese classic.
Linseed & Sesame Malted Loaf
Generously sprinkled with crunchy linseeds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds – a truly satisfying bread.

Each of our croissants is made exclusively with rich French butter from a centuries-old technique.

Only the crunchiest pecans and most delectable maple syrup are good enough for our uniquely delicious take on a Danish classic. We mightn’t have been the first to make this one, but we think we might just have perfected it!
Le Raisin Pain aux Raisins
Stuffed with raisins, oozing with crème pâttisière
The pain aux raisins is a classic French treat, but ours is something special. We pack our unique Cuisine de France dough full of moist raisins from Turkey, then add our sumptuous crème pâttisière. The resulting texture is distinctive, delicious, and unforgettable. Unravel it slowly or munch on it with abandon – however you eat it, a Cuisine de France Le Raisin moment is a moment made special.
Le Choco Pain au Chocolat
Sublime French chocolate makes the French pastry par excellence
The pain au chocolat might just be the ultimate French pastry, and every one we create is a flakily mouth-watering masterpiece. Our special layered Cuisine de France croissant pastry is shot through with intense, dark French chocolate to give an irresistible combination of texture and taste.
