Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza is here!

by - January 10, 2017

Nothing is better than fresh ingredients, delectable baked goods and a good sip of coffee. It instantly brightens up any day when you dine at a restaurant that has the passion to give their customers a value for their money.

Now, The Bistro Group gives you another dining place to look forward to! Together with Global Baker-Entrepreneur Dean Brettschneider, they bring new world baking to Manila! :)

Authentic artisan handcrafted bakery products, delectable sourdough pizzas and a unique 'new world' baking style. These are what The Bistro Group and Kiwi baker, celebrity foodpreneur, TV host and book author Dean Brettschneider promises to deliver as they introduce two new food concepts - Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza

Baker & Cook is known for its delicious breads and pastries made with honest, clean and quality ingredients. Everything is freshly made by hand and they also ferment their bread. Sourdough is good for you than typical ones you find at groceries, because it's easier to digest, nutritious and has amazing flavor. :) 

At the launch of Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza, we even got the pleasure of having Dean Brettschneider give us a live demo of how he makes bread and of course, he mentioned that passion is a huge factor when baking. :) 

Baker & Cook offers all day breakfast from 7:00AM. Throughout the day when you want a sip of their roasted coffee and a bite into a delicious cake or pastry, have a delightful salmon quiche and hot pie over lunch, or Bambolinis and salads in the afternoon until 10:00PM, Baker & Cook is just the perfect place. 

Along with the opening of Baker & Cook, you will also easily spot Plank Sourdough Pizza adjacent to it. :)

Plank uses their signature sourdough bread handcrafted from a combination of flours fermented up to 48 hours with natural wild yeast called "levain", salt, water, and extra virgin olive oil. The dough is kneaded by hand before covering them with fresh, quality toppings. Plank's sourdough culture is over 25 years old and has travelled around the world with Brettschneider. They are particularly proud of the super soft pillowy soft crust with a touch of crispiness.

Plank's many is simple - seven hand-crafted pizzas, salads, starters, a dessert, a some Filipino favorites. With Baker & Cook just being on the other side, Plank doesn't need a lot of dishes. 

Brettschneider dispensed with traditional pizzas like Margherita and Quattro Formagi. He imagined what toppings are really good and so they have barbecued pulled chicken with cranberries...

This pizza flavor particularly surprised me, because I never knew cranberries would work so perfectly with it! And they weren't lying when they said that their bread is superb, because I normally don't eat the crust of pizzas, but this one just made me want more! ^_^ They also have smoked salmon and truffle mushrooms pizzas and I so cannot wait to come back for those!

Exactly what I feel right now ^^^^ Haha! :)

Brettschneider's success is built on creating a unique experience that delivers the very best of baking. He likewise acknowledges the importance of choosing the right partners in making the business work and believes that The Bistro Group shares his passion. :)

Truly, The Bistro Group has brought only the best here in Manila. :) Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza will officially open their doors tomorrow, January 11, 2017!

Baker & Cook is open from 7:00AM to 10:00PM. Plank Sourdough Pizza is open from 11:00AM to 10:00PM. Both are located at the G/F S Maison Conrad.
