25 Jan Tartine Bakery Coming to Seoul
San Francisco-based French-style bakery, Tartine is set to open its first flagship store in Seoul, South Korea. Located in Seoul’s sophisticated neighborhood of Hannam Dong, the location will be led by award-winning pastry chef Hyunhee Lee and Edward Lee, co-founder of Baroque Bakery and Buzza Pizza in Seoul.
Founded by Chad Robertson, Tartine has become known the world over through the bakery’s trademark organic bread. The hearth-baked loaves have spawned a menu ranging from sandwiches, croissants, tarts, scones, cookies, cakes and the iconic Country Loaf.
The Seoul location will also serve Coffee Manufactory, the bakery’s first fully realized roaster and coffee brand.
“The food culture in Korea is really amazing, [as is] the way they take Western food influences,” says Chad Robertson, Tartine’s James Beard Award–winning mastermind. “I’m very excited about the exchange of culture and collaborating with the team there.”
Following the opening in Seoul which is expected to open February 9, 2018, Tartine is scheduled to open a 40,000 square-foot Tartine Manufactory in Los Angeles later this year, which will include a grain mill and a pizza restaurant and a stand-alone Coffee Manufactory store in Oakland’s Jack London Square.
