Our Story

Built on a love for traditional shortbreads started in the highlands of Scotland, Chef Scottish Francis (known as the “Banksy of Bakers”, and crowned the “Donut King” by Chef Gordon Ramsey himself) has brought his treasured family recipes to the states and given them a contemporary NYC twist. 

Working alongside his wife and Co-Founder Christine, as well as their two Italian Greyhounds, Hamlet & Midnight, they carry on the family legacy to share their passion for shortbread with you.
