Welcome! Proper Patisserie is the new business of top UK Pastry Chef, Andrew Blas
Born and raised in Sunderland, Andy has returned home to the North East to set up his own personal brand and business – Proper Patisserie. For the first time, Andy’s creations will be available outside of London. This includes his signature macaroons, handmade chocolates and bespoke creations for your special occasions!
Top Class Tasty Treats
Have you ever had the experience of ordering a dessert that sounded AMAZING only for it to arrive and for you to be disappointed by how bland and boring it was in reality? Or, have you visited a cake shop and bought something impulsively which looked beautiful and delicious...only to find that it was tasteless?
Why can't sweet treats (also known as patisserie) be beautiful AND delicious!
Why can't patisserie be exciting and innovative?!
They can! They should be!! This is exactly what Proper Patisserie is all about!
Proper Patisserie is for everyone, but what we really hope is that people who have a real sweet tooth and a passion for fantastic food will enjoy our distinctive combination of uncompromising standards, bold colours and perfectly balanced flavour combinations. And, you can expect both timeless classics and modern twists on nostalgic favourites. ALWAYS stunning, and ALWAYS delicious!
Meet our Chef
Call me Andy (or Chef!), people who know me do - and lets face it, if you're passionate about PROPER patisserie like me then hopefully we'll be getting to know each other well!
A few things you might not know about me....
- 2017 UK Pastry Team Captain (Ice Candidate)
- Recent Corporate Pastry Chef of luxury Cruise Line Seabourn
- Former Executive Pastry Chef at the iconic London hotel Cafe Royal (and whilst there winner of Tripadvisor's 'Top London Afternoon Tea' for 9 consecutive months)
***Exciting news - we are in the process of securing a lease to our very first shop and showcase! All going well, we'll be opening up in one of the studios at Washington Arts Centre in June!
We believe that the best way for us to offer you top class tasty treats is for Andy to get to work in his new kitchen, and for us to bring what he creates straight to you to try!
