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, has brought us some very unholy doughnuts. These aren’t round boys, they’re Longboys.
Found at Wembley Boxpark and the Selfridges Food Hall, Longboys has changed the game for doughnuts. More like a eclair-doughnut hybrid, they’re 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.
The menu changes on a monthly basis, and it also features some epic one-off specials, depending what’s in season at the time. For example, one of their 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 can be found at Boxpark Wembley and leading department store Selfridges (inside both the main Food hall and sold in the Selfridges Kitchen restaurant). You’ll also find them in a number of central London cafés and restaurants starting in July. Follow them on Instagram for more updates.
