Founded in a small rented kitchen space in Port Chester, New York in 1991, Lecoq Cuisine has grown to be the preeminent manufacturer of fine French pastries in the United States. It was established by pastry chef/baker Eric Lecoq whose mission was to create a “proof and bake” as well as a “ready to bake” croissant for the commercial marketplace. Using only the finest quality ingredients and the most innovative manufacturing methods, Chef Lecoq’s passion brought the hand of the skilled pastry chef and the traditional flavor and flaky crispness of the butter-laced croissant to a cost-effective, frozen pastry.
