If you’ve been wondering around Kensington over the past few weeks, specifically down Holland Street, you might have happened across an eye catching sign, a wreath of brightly painted flowers and macarons, and in the centre a message, saying “The Agnes is coming to Town”. This is the soon to be hub of the Agnes de Sucre empire, founded and run by Reshmi Bennett.
Agnes de Sucre will be opening its doors very soon, with a soft launch, consisting of Reshmi’s tasty macarons, marshmallows, hot chocolate and aromatic Coutume coffee, there’s also chance to win a resplendent box of 18 macarons.
It’s taken Reshmi 18 months of fastidious work, searching for the perfect property, renovation, design etc, now all that hard work has paid off. The store is nestled in the heart of Kensington and all are welcome, from macaron connoisseurs to anyone curious about these sweet French delicacies.
Having trained in French cuisine at the prestigious Ecole Gregoire Ferrandi in Paris, along with working under the tutelage of a Michelin star chef, Reshmi certainly knows her stuff. She ingenuously incorporates traditional French, British and Asian influences into her recipes, interweaving the three to create a magnificent array of tasty treats.
We highly recommend you take a visit and sample some sweet goodies.
