Bakers Maison launches awesome artisanal breads

Bakers Maison by Gardenia

The first time I have encountered Bakers Maison was when I had my eye check up at my opthalmologist’s clinic in SM North Edsa a few months back. I was then with my boyfriend and we were really hungry after queuing at the clinic. We learned that Bakers Maison is by the same people behind renowned bread brand, Gardenia. It is the said brand’s artisanal specialty bakery café.

Bloggers recently gathered at Bakers Maison Glorietta 4 Branch where they had introduced various recipes that made use Bakers Maison specialty artisanal breads featuring Whole Wheat Baguette, Ciabatta Classico, Sourdough de Maison, Classic Bagel, Chocolate Chip Bagel, and Raisin Cinnamon Bagel. The recipes were personally demonstrated and prepared by no less than Chef Edwin Tan, a Malaysian pastry chef with three decades of baking expertise.
