Working at Le Pain Quotidien NL

Le Pain Quotidien (French for 'daily bread') is a bakery-restaurant chain founded in 1990 by Alain Coumont. Alain was dissatisfied with the quality of bread in Brussels, so he started making his own sourdough bread using only four ingredients: water, flour, salt and time. Now Le Pain Quotidien has more than two hundred restaurants in fifteen countries, spread over three continents.
