Seven Miche­lin starred Chef Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bak­ery, now open in Jumeirah, makes the most sublime pep-me-up dessert — Choco­late Bouchons

The Usa-based Bouchon Bak­ery made its foray into Dubai last in Au­gust, with its flag­ship at The Beach, JBR. Helmed by world-renowned seven Miche­lin starred Chef Thomas Keller, the uber-chic bak­ery brings his culi­nary ex­per­tise to this side of the world. The bak­ery is one of the first few branches open to guests out­side of the United States, the other ones be­ing in Kuwait and Qatar.

When we say Bouchon Bak­ery think ar­ti­sanal breads and vi­en­nois­eries, a wide se­lec­tion of break­fast nosh, bev­er­ages and pas­tries, Chef Keller’s cus­tom-blended ‘TK by Equa­tor’ cof­fee, tra­di­tional teas and hand-crafted hot choco­late among a smor­gas­bord of oth­ers.

As the name sug­gests, the eatery spe­cialises in French boulan­gerie prod­ucts and of­fers up quin­tes­sen­tial French clas­sics in­clud­ing the Semolina Al­mond Fi­nancier, Rose­wa­ter Paris Brest, and the ever-pop­u­lar French treat, Mac­arons, in seven dif­fer­ent flavours.

How­ever, the con­fec­tionary that oc­cu­pies pride of place is the bak­ery’s sig­na­ture Bouchons — rich, pe­tite brown­ies filled with semi-sweet choco­late morsels. These vis­ually ap­peal­ing treats are as deca­dent as they look. Sup­ple and just the right amount of sweet, here’s their recipe for them. So bring out those aprons and mitts and chan­nel the in­ner baker in you!
