Jos and Jean-Marie Neuberg are two brothers with a passion for healthy, wholesome mouth-watering cakes, patisserie, bread and viennoiserie. Their boulangerie has been around for the past 16 years and prides itself on adhering to its artisanal methods.
“We work with people, not machinery,” says Jean-Marie. “Our clients want our handmade products made with fresh milk, fairtrade chocolate and quality butters. It’s good old-fashioned, traditional baking, free from artificial colours and flavours. That’s why our products are so tasty and we promote the ‘Made in Luxembourg’ brand.”
Whether it is traditional bread, patisserie for a special event, a bespoke christening or birthday extravaganza, anything is possible.” Our viennoiserie is really special,” continues Jean-Marie. ‘We only use free-range eggs and milk, and we let the pastry sit for about 20 hours before we complete the product. We do our utmost to select the best ingredients to ensure our cakes are the best that can be. This is why our clients come to us again and again. We’re very basic in that regard, but we do have a wide choice and we know our trade inside out.”
Jos and Jean-Marie and their specially-trained team provide their products for sale across 15 distribution points in Luxembourg, so there is sure to be one near you if you pay a visit.
