Have you ever wandered past one of those ‘really fancy cake shops’ and thought that the cakes looked more like works of art than something to eat. That’s down to the love and passion that goes into French pâtisserie.
Séverine Rutherford who owns Crème de la Crème Newcastle told us how her love of baking as a little girl inspired her to start her own business.
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 pâtisserie, I decided to start a new adventure.
At Crème de la Crème we aim to bring you delicious traditional French pâtisserie that you will 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 pâtisserie can be ordered on demand also.
