Yearning for the kind of little corner shops you'd stumble across on continental holidays, husband-and-wife team Cara Lloyd and David Brown ditched the day jobs, rolled up their sleeves, and opened one up themselves.
Cara was a German teacher, Dave a Dublin cheesemonger. The couple plundered their mums' and grandmothers' Jewish-German-American recipe books for inspiration. Cara took courses at the prestigious École Lenotre near Paris, and scaled up the family recipes. And finally, when a little corner premises came up just outside Terenure in 2005, they were ready and The Corner Bakery was born.
Over the years Dave's sister Fiona helped the business to take root, and Sam, Dave and Cara's son, learned the ropes.
Nowadays we're a team of ten people, baking seven days a week, with Sarah leading the front-of-house team. Each baker brings their own touches and recipes to the mix. But the recipes for those cookies and traybakes haven't changed since day one!
