Andrew Stow opened Lord Stow’s Bakery on Coloane Island, Macau on 15th September 1989. It was a modest affair, in a small village shop, in an area he loved. Local people quickly took to his European produce – a phenomenon in an area with no strong tradition of bread eating.
Lord Stow’s Bakery suddenly became famous for one item – Andrew’s Egg Tart. Journalists started writing about Andrew and his little bakery found itself on Macau’s list of tourist attractions. Andrew’s original recipe Egg Tarts became well known beyond their territorial confines, attracting a faithful following and becoming a visible export, almost a trademark of Macau.
