A man who has opened his own bakery in Pinner inspired by his Parisian roots wants to thank the community for their support and custom since he took the plunge of starting his own business.
Steffa Morais, a former Youth Worker from North Harrow, opened Bread of Life Bakery on Bridge Street four months ago with a vision of introducing real food and providing an excellent service to people in Pinner.
The artisan bakery has been a hit with residents since it opened its doors in August 2021, with many commenting on the friendly atmosphere and quality of the pastries, cakes and coffees.
Owner Steffan Morais told PINNERNews: “I am a youth worker by trade, I worked with vulnerable families and young people. For me, Bread of Life is about more than money. It’s about serving people and introducing them to the foods born out of the tradition of where I grew up, in Paris, France.
“Like many, during lockdown, I had more time for baking and I was intrigued to learn about what real bread is, just flour, salt and water, and started experimenting.”
Bread of Life specialises in Sourdough, and Steffan and his team make everything on-site themselves rather than outsourcing.
Steffan added: “THe reaction so far has been brilliant. Customers come in and say they have been waiting for a bakery like this to come to the area. It’s a great location, with a vegan cafe down the road, quality butchers and a great community.”
Steffan plans to add Yule Logs and a variety of 10 sandwiches in the lead up to Christmas.
