Miss Maud & Rawsome Media Release - Sweet Treats Free Of Gluten, Dairy, Grain, Sugar, Egg and Soy

Rawsome's Best Selling Caramel Slice

Rawsome founder Laila Gampfer

Hey All

I don’t generally publish media releases, but after meeting Martine from ChompChomp and learning a lot more about coeliac disease, people with certain allergies or conditions really miss out on many foods we take for granted. I really love pastries so if you can’t . . . → Read More: Miss Maud & Rawsome Media Release – Sweet Treats Free Of Gluten, Dairy, Grain, Sugar, Egg and Soy

Jesters - 6 May 2013

While I didn’t try Jesters pastries, I loved the Footy pie but the Pavarotti wasn’t that great. The Footy pie was delicious with an excellent balance of tender chunks of meat, saltiness from the bacon, that lovely thick gravy, and the strong cheesy flavour hiding under the pastry lid. The Pavarotti had lovely tender pieces of chicken, but the Carbonara sauce wasn’t what I expected and let the pie’s contents down. The William Tell dessert pie promised so much but left you wanting. The flavour combination is there but the lack of sweetness in the custard let this dessert pie down and could have been a star. Still, if the other savoury pies are along the lines of the Footy, this is a great place to grab a pie for lunch. . . . → Read More: Jesters – 6 May 2013

Pie Face - 18 Apr 2013

I’m not a pie expert but if you’re in the mood for a savoury pie, I think a stop at Pie Face is worthwhile. The flaky puff pastry is delicious as too the filling but just need to watch the intenseness. As for the other pastry items, I can’t say I was impressed. Pie Face is a bakery and not a patisserie serving fine French made pastries. Having said that, apart from the danish which was on par with Miss Maud’s, the other items were ok. The chocolate mini pie was poor though. If you want sweet pastries, stick with Miss Maud’s – you know they’re tasty. . . . → Read More: Pie Face – 18 Apr 2013

Lawley's Bakery Cafe - Mt Lawley - 19 Dec 2012

Lawleys - Display Cabinet

Lawley’s is a bakery and not a patisserie. Despite that, they still offer up delicious pastries. I wouldn’t rate the pastry itself as good as Choux Cafe or Scents of Taste but the fillings and flavours of each pastry work well. I really loved the chocolate tart which is easily the best I’ve eaten. You expect a strong dark chocolate flavour but it has a milk chocolate flavour instead and it melts in your mouth like chocolate heaven! The raspberry tart and the eclairs were also very enjoyable. I also like the pumpkin and spinach quiche which had a perfect balance of flavours. From all the patisserie like establishments I’ve visited, Lawleys are also the cheapest with a bill under $29 whereas I’d normally pay ~$35. . . . → Read More: Lawley’s Bakery Cafe – Mt Lawley – 19 Dec 2012

Golden Bakery

This place is the supplier at our work for morning teas and the samosas in particular are delicious. I also enjoy the sausage rolls, meat pies, mini quiches, vegetable pastries or whatever else is ordered on certain Fridays of the month. I could keep going on! The sizes are finger food so if your workplace needs a lot of baked goods for a morning tea or some function, place an order or head down to Golden Bakery. Even if you just want something for lunch the place is worth trying out. . . . → Read More: Golden Bakery
