“Authentic parisian baking”
Master Baker Jackie Jegat, the owner and founder of Paris Bakery, was born in Doué-la-Fontaine, France where he began his baking career at the age of 16. He started as a baker's apprentice for a shop in Saumur, France. After two years of apprenticeship, he moved to Paris. In 1978, at age 23, Jackie opened his first bakery in Chatou, a suburb of Paris, where he soon brought his brother Eric to serve as his apprentice.In 1979, Jackie opened a new bakery in the 10th Arrondissement, Rue Faubourg St. Martin. After much success, he made his way to San Francisco in 1981. There, he worked at Bakers of Paris. Four years later, in 1985, Jackie moved to Monterey, and bought Maison du Croissant on Bonifacio Place, initially calling it Le Montmartre (now known as Paris Bakery). Jackie had become so busy he sent for his brother, who was still in Paris. Eric moved to Monterey and worked with his brother. In 1986, Jackie opened a wholesale warehouse in Seaside. The Wholesale department has been supplying fresh baked goods 365 days a year to Monterey Peninsula’s well renowned restaurants, hotels, coffee houses, and delicatessens.
