Who’s behind Lady Bedford ?

I’m a very passionate self-taught baker! I recently obtained a
“professional competence in the bakery and pastry-making sector
certificate” in Brussels. After this, I was ready to start on my new
adventure but I quickly realised the biggest question I faced was what kind of
pastries I wanted to sell.

Having spent numerous summer holidays in England as a child, I hold very
“sweet” memories of all the pastries I discovered there. Fondant
fancies, millionaire shortbread, digestive biscuits, chocolate sponge rolls,
scones and many more have coloured those years. I completely fell in love with
British bakes!

On the other hand, I also have tender childhood memories of the little choux
à la crème and frangipane pastries we got from our local market and all the
marvellous more “classic” pastries we regularly ate at home, such as
merveilleux, javanais, misérable, éclairs, …

Big dilemma! Would I sell British bakes or turn to the more “classic” French
pâtisserie? After spending countless nights mulling it over, I woke up one
morning thinking ‘why choose’? Let’s just do both! And that was the beginning
of “Lady Bedford”. The name I chose is definitely British ; it refers to
the 7th Duchess of Bedford, who inadvertently “invented” the Afternoon Tea.

Lady Bedford offers a wide variety of British and “classic” cakes, sweet and
savoury tarts, biscuits and Afternoon Tea. All my pastries are made with a lot
of love and care, using only the best ingredients. The pastry doughs, curds,
jams, creams, frostings and fillings are all homemade.  “Lady Bedford”
stands for quality, taste and originality.  

So enough talking, prepare your taste buds and join me in the wonderful
world of “Lady Bedford”.
