French Dining At Maison Blanc Artisan Bakery

By  |  0 Comments

Maison Blanc, the authentic French Boulangerie and Pâtisserie first opened in Oxford in 1981 by master chef Raymond Blanc now numbers 14 outlets in the southeast of England. Maison Blanc offers breakfast and seasonal dinners. With most branches closing around 7pm Maison Blanc is perfectly suited to lunch or their afternoon tea with clotted cream, scones, crepes and waffles.

Recently Simply Woman sampled their delightful summer menu of sandwiches, soups (think French Onion), cold and hot plates and starters like their delicious mixed olives served with seasonal bread. Main course delights include Smoked Roast Salmon Nicoise – a salad platter including olives, fine green beans, eggs, new potatoes and green salad topped with salmon shreds. Try also the Goats Cheese and Tomato sandwich, served with crème fraiche and roquito peppers, rocket and basil.

All portions are generously sized, so come hungry and be prepared to share! Restaurant décor varies from quaint English to casual lounge depending on location. London’s Fulham Road branch also has an outdoor eating area perfect for summer dining.

Maison Blanc’s Tentation recently received a Gold Star for two of its deserts at this year’s Great Taste Awards – one for its delicious Tentation and another for Salted Caramel Truffle Torte. MAISON BLANC tentationTentation (featured) was praised for its ‘Stunning presentation, rich dark chocolate flavours, bitter and sweet elements in good balance, and juicy berry notes contrasting in the almond sponge with the rich and creamy ganache.’
The Salted Caramel Truffle Torte a rich chocolate and pecan sponge topped with salted caramel truffle and caramel glaze was described as having a ‘Lovely glossy and indulgent looking appearance.’
Says Rebecca Rose, Marketing Director at Maison Blanc, ‘…once again our products have received gold stars at the Great Taste Awards, demonstrating the skills of our wonderful pâtissiers.”

Maison Blanc’s Tentation is available at all Maison Blanc’s shops, in individual servings through to 60 portion sizes. Also available from Waitrose in boxes of 4.
