Who We are

Together with his team, founder Richard Hart has created his take on the local Danish bakery, and a place to share the bread and pastries that they love to bake for friends and guests. Drawing inspiration and influences from around the world, the menu reflects the varied upbringing and travels of Richard and his international team, as well as the traditions of their newfound home here in Denmark.

Richard moved to Copenhagen over a year ago from San Francisco, where he had spent the previous seven years working alongside Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson, most recently as head baker, at the internationally acclaimed bakery, Tartine. Prior to starting as a baker, Richard worked as a chef in the United Kingdom and United States, including with Jeremy Fox at the Napa restaurant, Ubunto.

Since relocating to Copenhagen with his wife and four boys, Richard has travelled across Denmark and Europe to meet with small and artisanal producers, in search of inspiration and for the most delicious seasonal ingredients with which to create the Hart Bageri menu. Richard and his team have also been baking bread for restaurant noma, a relationship that will continue into the future.

Working alongside Richard will be Mette Beck Adsbøl, who joins the team as general manager after thirteen years working at Lagkagehuset, including as manager of its original Christianshavn location. The bakery team is rounded out by Susannah Schoolman, who from b. Patisserie in San Francisco, Aris Albinana and Wendy Williams who join from Tartine, and Talia Richard-Carvajal who joins from Claridge’s in London.
