Michelle Eshkeri opened Margot in a dilapidated shop around the corner from her home in North London in February 2016. Believing that the bread she baked at home, one loaf at a time, would also be enjoyed by friends and neighbors. It has developed into a center of community life and a place to buy wonderful bread and pastries, where everything is produced on site. There isn't a night shift, so the bread, pastries and cakes fill the counter and the shelves throughout the day. With a menu guided by what they are excited about; customer favorites, festivals, celebrations and seasonal produce. Using seeds, whole grains and a long fermentation process to make full-flavored, nutritious and delicious bread.
'Michelle Eshkeri's book Modern Sourdough gives a perfect balance with easy home-style recipes and more invitingly complex challenges, just what every budding baker is looking for. Recipes are well thought out, clear and easy to follow, and will get you on the road to sourdough brilliance in no time.' * Dan Lepard, author of Short and Sweet *
