During a rare day off on Friday, I tuned into ITV’s Britain’s Best Bakery to see how Birmingham patisserie Maison Mayci fared on the show.
After a technical perfect afternoon tea, with beer sourdough rolls and mini sticky toffee puddings, the Gallic gourmets upped the ante with a Balti and monkfish quiche.
Chef Peter Sidwell said “They brought in an eclectic range of local produce mixing it up with French flair”. But it was the judge’s choice cake of layered lime and coconut that sealed the deal for cake maker Mich Turner and see Maison Mayci go through to the national final.
The suburbs of Birmingham welcomed Maison Mayci’s bakery when it opened in Kings Heath in 2005, followed by a café in Moseley in 2010 after customer demand.
David and Remi supply high quality French patisserie and bakery products with a rustic lunch menu, which includes daily soup, quiche and pasta specials. All of their produce is freshly baked and cooked on site every day, using the finest locally sourced ingredients from a local butcher based in Harborne and the fruit and veg markets.
