Two of London’s very best pastry chefs have partnered up to launch the fancy new doughnut company, Longboys.
This new venture from former Group Pastry Chef for the Hakkasan group, Graham Hornigold, and Heather Kaniuk, former Executive Pastry Chef at the Mandarin Oriental, is bringing us some very unholy doughnuts. These aren’t round boys, they’re Longboys.
Launching this week at Wembley Boxpark, Longboys is about to change the game for doughnuts. More like a eclair-doughnut hybrid, they’ll be filled with all sorts of fresh and tasty ingredients, such as rhubarb, custard and orange; sticky toffee, date and pecan; raspberry, rose and lychee; and lemon meringue pie.
If you head to Wembley on March 7 for the opening, Longboys are giving customers 50% off their doughnuts all day (11am–7pm).
The menu will change on a monthly basis, and it’s set to feature some epic one-off specials, depending what’s in season at the time. For example, one of their current specials sounds particularly peachy: a finger doughnut filled with peach compote, lemon verbena cream and toasted almond.
The doughnuts will sit alongside a menu of soft serve ice creams, all made in house and changing on a seasonal basis, as well as coffees and ethical soft drinks.
Longboys launches in Boxpark Wembley on March 7, with a permanent central London site in the pipeline for this year. You’ll also find them in a number of central London cafés and restaurants starting in April. Follow them on Instagram for more updates.
