The rolls signed by Olivier Anquier returned to São Paulo. The French chef resurrected his bakery, Mundo Pão do Olivier, which had closed its doors a year ago. Since this Monday, the 20th, the business has reopened, but in a new format and at a new address, in the form of a kiosk inside the Conjunto Nacional, on Avenida Paulista.
The menu follows the line of the first house, which was on the ground floor of the Esther building, in Praça da República. Open between 2017 and March 2021, it closed its activities due to the Covid-19 pandemic. At the new address, there are recipes for breads such as walnuts or olives. In the puff pastry wing, there are croissants and chocolate breads.
Also successful are the succulents, Anquier’s adaptation of a classic recipe from Brittany, which are filled with different fruits, such as apples, strawberries and lemons.
A little over a year ago, Anquier justified the closing of the bakery by saying that he would not have the breath to endure the second red phase of the state quarantine plan, referring to the restrictions on the operation of commercial establishments in São Paulo.
Now, with all businesses fully open, the chef is planning a brand expansion. In addition to the kiosk, there are plans to spread the bakery to different cities in the country – but it is still a desire, since there is no forecast of new addresses or a schedule of openings.
