MICHELIN-STARRED CHEF THOMAS KELLER’S BOUCHON BAKERY DEBUTS IN DUBAI

Dubai dwellers are in for the sweetest of treats this summer as world-renowned seven Michelin starred chef, Thomas Keller, brings his culinary excellence to Dubai with the opening of the first ever Bouchon Bakery within The Beach, Jumeirah Beach Residence.

Expect to make this new venue a morning routine staple with the wide selection of breakfast beverages and pastries being the perfect morning pick-me-up. Whether you opt for Chef Keller’s custom-blended ‘TK by Equator’ coffee, espresso, iced or traditional teas, or hand-crafted hot chocolate to counteract your chilly over-air conditioned office, Bouchon Bakery has you covered.

With a mouth-watering selection of freshly-made delectable delights including sandwiches, soups, quiches and salads, in addition to the brand’s famed artisanal breads and viennoiseries, there’s an abundance of light-bites for lunchtime and evening meals to appease even the fussiest of foodies.

For the sweet tooth, pair a leisurely afternoon tea with French classics including the Semolina Almond Financier, Rosewater Paris Brest, or Lemon Tart. Share the best of Bouchon Bakery with a perfectly packaged selection of light macarons with seven different flavors to choose from – including the ever-popular Pistachio, and the exclusive local flavor of Coconut & Saffron. Don’t forget Chef Keller’s famous TKO cookie (Thomas Keller Oreo) or Bouchon Bakery’s signature Bouchons – rich, chocolatey petite brownies filled with semi-sweet chocolate morsels.

Identified by its warm green façade and antique cast iron street lamp, Bouchon Bakery is the ultimate social gathering spot to create long-lasting memories with friends and family. With interiors created by famed designer Adam D. Tihany, a long-time friend and collaborator of Chef Keller’s, the bakery is a traditional interpretation of a French boulangerie, mirroring Chef Keller’s twist on classical French / American cuisine.

Antique wall sconces add a warm and inviting interior glow, while original Tihany-designed chairs are perfectly placed over classic wood flooring. In the cooler months, relax within the expansive outdoor seating area, fitted with classic Maison Gatti bistro chairs and strategically placed planters that provide plenty of privacy.

Set within The Beach, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Bouchon Bakery is now open from 8am to 11pm weekdays and 8am to 12am on weekends. Stay up-to-date with all upcoming activities and recipes by following @BouchonBakeryME on Instagram and Facebook. Alternatively, for further information call 04 419 0772.
