One of the greatest surprises about Japan is the bread. Before I came here, I thought that the Japanese did not eat bread, but rice, baby whales and dolphins. Now, after 4 years I have no doubt that the best bread and patisserie in the world is to be found in Japan.
We made a decision a couple of years ago to give the catering contract to a bunch of local hippies rather than a big proven catering conglomerate. Occasionally you get it right.
They produce delicious meals made from vegetables and stuff grown and er caught and er slaughtered just down the road a piece. The also bake an incredible range of bread and patisserie right on the spot.
I think the scrupulosity, meticulosity, fastidionosity of the Japanese has turned making bread into an art form.
So everlasting thanks to Kaito + for the amazing food. Many thanks to Charlie Murray, known around the office as, “the bonnie Earl” for the photos.
Bread of Heaven
