Head Baker Profile
Owned by The Capital Group, The London Bakery prides itself in having a team from a variety of backgrounds.
Rodrigue Richard, the Head Baker, has proven himself a true artiste when it comes to bread and pastries.
Rodrigue started baking in France at the young age of 17, perfecting his skills and gaining several certificates by the time he turned 21. His passion for baking led him on a 2 year voyage of discovery across this home country. From the south around Biarritz to the North and the Alps, all the time adding to his knowledge and improving his skills in creating regional French bread.
In 2003, he was spotted by the Executive Pastry Chef of The Dorchester who brought Rodrigue to London as his Head Baker. He joined The London Bakery in 2011 with over two decades of experience in supplying luxury hotels, restaurants and private members clubs.
With superb ingredient knowledge, originality in shaping and moulding as well as thorough experience in first-class European establishments, Rodrigue has the savoir-fair required to meet the demands of top chefs. Most importantly, he understands their need to offer an excellent quality product - which is delivered daily, on time and with no exception - but also to meet margins.
