Top national baking award for Belle Epoque patisserie
A London patisserie business which was launched 14 years ago by a husband and wife team, has captured The Craft Business Award at the Baking Industry Awards 2016 – the industry’s equivalent of the Oscars. Belle Epoque Patisserie, which was founded by Eric Rousseau and his wife, Hulya, and hastwo shops in Newington Green and Islington, beat off stiff competition from the best of the British baking industry to capture the prestigious award.Their achievement was recognised last night in front of more than 800 industry guests at London’s Park Lane Hilton during a gala awards ceremony. The competition is run by British Baker Magazine and organised by William Reed Business Media. Eric, the company’s Managing Director, was presented with the award by Matt Dawson, television celebrity and a member of England’s 2003 World Cup winning rugby union team, and Chris Jenkins, Cluster Director UK & Ireland for the award’s sponsor, Dawn Foods. “We are proud to be local, authentic and premium quality in all we bake, and we focus onFrench style patisserie and handmade breads, all made with premium ingredients,” said Eric who is a pastry chef, baker and chocolatier. “As well as retail, we supply local premium wholesale including cakes to Selfridges and Selfridges Café. Our breads include baguettes, rye, pain complet and dried fig and apricot because innovation is important. “We follow the seasons and try to introduce exceptional products. Last Christmas, for example, we produced a chocolate logs collection which included a Childhood Log, Enchanted Forest Log and Star Log.” Eric is also adept at producing bespoke wedding and celebration cakes as well as Croquembouche – the luxuriant French dessert made from choux pastry and chocolate. The business also offers apprenticeships to promising students, changes its range of cakes twice yearly and uses natural fruits and less sugar where possible. Now in their 29 th year, the annual Baking Industry Awards are the premier event in the UK bakery calendar and have been recognising industry excellence since 1987.
