This November 19, 2020, Stephane Grattier, Lead Baker at Boulangerie Christophe in Georgetown, Washington D.C, was selected as Overall Winner of Tiptree World Bread Awards Heroes USA supported by American Bakers Association.
When lockdown was announced, Stephane took the selfless decision to bake fresh bread for the elderly and disabled individuals of his DC community. A few days later, Stephane decided these vulnerable people needed more, so in addition to the bread, he started making complete meals for them. Amazingly, Stephane would get into the bakery before 4am so that he was able to make the bread and meals ahead of his full working day.
The French bakery also won the coveted Tiptree World Bread Award USA in the baguette category in 2019 as well.
Congratulations to them for their efforts and continued support of their community.
