An artisan French bakery (French on the virtue of the provenance of its ingredients and of its head baker), Au Gourmand has been making bread, pastries and croissants since 2000. They now have a range of 20 breads, all slowly fermented and relying solely on the fundamental building blocks of good bread: flour, water, salt and natural leaven. The bakery's not open to the public, but supplies a long list of Edinburgh delis, restaurants and shops: find their baking at both branches of Henri, Relish in Leith, the Broughton Deli, Harvey Nichols and Porto & Fi, among other places. You can also buy in person from their stall at the Stockbridge Market every Sunday.
