The Bertinet Kitchen

Richard Bertinet

The Bertinet Kitchen opened in September 2005 in the centre of beautiful and historic Bath.  Owned and run by French baker and chef Richard Bertinet, the school offers a range of relaxed and fun courses for food lovers of all abilities and specialist baking and bread making courses for amateurs and professionals alike.

Originally from Brittany in north-west France, Richard trained as a baker from the age of 14.  After moving to the UK in the late 1980s, he started cooking. His catering background included time as pastry chef at the Chewton Glen Hotel and as head chef at both the Rhinefield House Hotel in the New Forest and the Silver Plough at Pitton, where he was awarded the Egon Ronay, Pub of the Year, and the American Express Magazine, UK Pub of the Year. In 1996, a position as operations director with the Novelli Group of restaurants brought him to London where, in 1998, he started advising small food-related businesses. And in 2000, he set up the Dough Co, his consultancy business. From here, he divided his time between consultancy work advising on the development of new products for several supermarket chains, teaching and writing.

In 2005, Richard opened the cookery school with his wife Jo. In 2012, Richard and Jo founded The Bertinet Bakery, to produce artisan bread for as wide an audience as possible and achieved nationwide listings with both Waitrose and Pret a Manger before selling the bakery to The Bread Factory in 2019.

Richard has published 3 books – Dough, Crust and Crumbs – Show the Dough who’s Boss!
