Noisette has a history that spans generations and countries

Following is a short note from Noisette Founder, David Menard, 5th generation baker

“My family history begins before 1825. At that time my great-grandfather was baking homemade bread for himself and his neighbours. His bread was in such demand that he decided to start what would become his legacy.

In starting the first boulangerie, every generation has continued the tradition; uncles and cousins, males and females have chosen to become bakers or pastry chefs.

I think of what my family has created, in respect of traditional bread. At no time has what I am doing been an obligation, it was simply love for the earth – the simple elements that combined, infuse you with those flavours.

Now I have the privilege to write another page in our history, and to share my family’s passion with all of you.”
