L'Atelier des Frangins, rue du Port Neuf in Bayonne, under the arcades!

A very good pastry shop in Bayonne

Berenger has been coming to the Basque Country for more than 15 years. History teacher, originally from Chartres, he imagines with his brother Simon, pastry chef, a retraining project. After much thought (7 years!) and studies, they both set out to create a luxury pastry shop in Bayonne. Not a simple pastry, a family project (they take their parents with them to the Basque Country) in which they put all their heart and all their energy. They are investing in a magnificent premises under the arcades, rue Port Neuf in the very center of the dynamic city of Bayonne, renovating it to turn it into a modern manufacturing laboratory on one side and a warm sales area on the other. They open L'Atelier des Frangins on January 21, 2023. It's a success! You will agree, how not to be tempted by these delicious pastries? These are small individual pieces of art, which make your mouth water and invite all gourmets to come and test this new pastry shop in Bayonne! Foodies are not mistaken, it is as delicate on the palate as it is pleasant for the pupils!

All homemade, from local products

Simon and Berenger Touchart (who trained as a pastry chef and business manager, to accompany his brother in this adventure) are committed to the quality of their pastries, by choosing exceptional raw materials. Of course, they do everything themselves and all you have to do is pass through the door of the Atelier des Frangins pastry shop to convince yourself of this, because you will see them working behind the glass roof of the laboratory. The dough pieces for pastries and biscuit bases, puff pastry, are prepared from the most local ingredients possible: butter, milk, eggs... The fruits for the desserts, the creams and the pies are harvested from maturity, chosen in season and full of taste. The hazelnuts used to make the unctuous and creamy pralines come from Piedmont, they are the best hazelnuts in Europe! The original chocolate comes from Ivory Coast. It is worked by hand to form the homemade chocolate/praline/feuilletine bars, which fill the chocolatines. You can't help but be amazed by the raspberry croissants and their elegant marbling… Simon and Bérenger both work in production and someone helps them with sales. For the brothers it's 70 hours a week with ½ day off, it's the commitment to make to launch such a project: they don't regret it and neither do their customers!
