The owners of Le Caprice DC have spent over two decades in France running their first family business there. During that time, the head-baker, Manijeh, learned the craft and fine techniques of baking authentic bread and French pastry in authentic Boulangeries, in the North East of France. After that time, Manijeh came to the US to acquaint herself with American demands and techniques in baking schools in New York and North Carolina. Now, after decades of training and preparation, Manijeh and Ahmad are opening their very own French Café Bakery in the DC area.
