NEW PRODUCTS ARE ALWAYS IN THE PIPELINE.
New products are always in the pipeline, according to client and customer need. For example, when the first Laurent bakery opened, ciabatta was a bread known only by Italians. More recently, as hamburgers have become a high-fashion item there has been growing demand for hamburger rolls of various kinds, including a brioche bun, now one of the most in-demand items.
Laurent's range grows every day. There are new products on a regular basis, and products that are seasonal. There is always a new cake for Mother’s Day, as well as specific products for Christmas, and a special range for Easter. One of the most popular and much appreciated is our Valentine's Day collection.

SOLD OUT - GALETTE DES ROIS - BECOME KING OR QUEEN FOR THE DAY!
The Galette des Rois is a traditional French delicacy baked for Epiphany, on 6th of January. Epiphany corresponds to the moment when the baby Jesus is presented to the Three Kings - Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar, who have arrived from the three continents, Asia, Africa and Europe, to welcome their Saviour. Epiphany incorporates a long standing family tradition to gather together and cut the famous cake.
The Galette des Rois is a cake unique with a small charm, the fève (little figurine), hidden inside to be discovered. The one who finds the fève is crowned and chooses his or her queen or king for the day, whilst having all of their greatest wishes realised.
Traditionally, a Galette des Rois is filled with frangipane, a sweet almond cream, and is the
confection with which the festival of Epiphany is celebrated at the end of the Christmas season.
Artisan bakers create them with acknowledged skill, to the greatest pleasure of the
sweet-toothed. Laurent Bakery, proudly a French artisan bakery, would like to acknowledge and share this tradition with you.
Celebrate on 6th of January
Visit us between 30th and 7th of January for an in store dégustation.
Order your Galette Des Rois TODAY!
