Les Pains de Gontran
The Times have dubbed Gontran Cherrier ‘France’s hottest baker’. The sexy 31 year old provides alluring breads to the capital’s top restaurants, and talks about carbs with a rare passion. And the good news is that Cherrier is about to open his own bakery in Abbesses this autumn; ‘Les Pains de Gontran’ will sell a unique menu of French classics with a twist: Naan-inspired brioche, miso loafs, foccaccias and gluten-free delights. But there’s more: after releasing half a dozen cookbooks in French, he is to publish an English-language DIY bread recipe book with Phaïdon before the end of 2010.
