Superb French bakery which dates back to 1832 when Lionel Poilane, a young baker from Normandy, came to Paris to open his first shop. His mission was to revive the traditional French sourdough loaves which were not as popular as baguettes, baking them in a wood-fired oven. Over the years, their popularity grew and in 2000, Lionel Poilane opened his first shop outside of France, in London. In 2002 his grand-daughter, Apollonia Poilane, took over the company and today a small selection of different types of bread are available at their London shops in Belgravia and Chelsea. Specialities including Viennese pastries, 'Punitions' and spoon biscuits which are sold alongside jams, sweets, Biscottes and gingerbread as well as a range of accessories including bread bins and bread knives.
