Having opened its first outlet in 2012, Baker & Cook has made a name in Singapore for their freshly-baked goods and classic pastries. Serving up an array of delectable sweet treats, it’s perfect place to grab a bite on a weekend morning with a coffee in hand.
We visited Baker & Cook at their Hillcrest outlet, hidden in Greenwood Avenue’s enclave of eateries. As soon as we opened the doors, we were greeted with the smell of warm butter, sugar and a faint waft of freshly brewed espresso. Check out what we tried and our thoughts on this homegrown bakery!
When artisanal bread was introduced to Singapore’s bakery scene, it became clear that not all bread is created equal. The long fermentation process that artisanal bakeries go through allows the dough to develop for more robust flavour and texture which gives rise to remarkable bakes.
Begin visually as you appreciate the bread’s brown hue. Feel its crispiness and breathe the perfume of the bread itself. Only then do you bite into it and take in its balanced texture of crunchy crust and fluffy soft insides. Let its complex flavours gradually develop in your mouth.
To fully experience this, we rounded up 10 specialty bakeries in Singapore if you are in it to get quality loaves and top-notch breads.
