Our Story

Hi, my name is Séverine, a French girl who fell in love with the North East 3 years ago.

I have always loved food and cooking since I was a little girl baking with my Grandma in Northern France.

Baking evokes very happy childhood memories for me so everything is made with love in my heart and a smile on my face.

In France, most people live to eat and not eat to live, it is a way of life.

Crème de la crème was a natural progression for me after training in France in bakery and patisserie, I have decided to start a new adventure.

We aim to bring you delicious traditional French pâtisserie that you have heard of and we  also revisit some English classics with a French twist.

We try to source locally as much as we can, as we are lucky to find wonderful farms around and make sure to guarantee the best quality for our pâtisseries.

Gluten free patisserie can be ordered on demand as well.
