'Keep calm and eat more butter' - I don't have to be told twice especially when it comes to French pâtisseries from Agathé's Pâtisserie!
Agathe Kerr is the very talented pâtissier behind Agathé Pâtissier. Agathe started selling her beautiful croissants at Prahran market a year ago and has been selling out every since! To satisfy her huge following, the busy mum of three took her business to the next level last weekend by opening her shop and open kitchen in South Melbourne market.
The shop's name is a play on with words with her first name and the word 'goûter' in French which means 'afternoon tea' but you can spoil yourself all day long with fresh pastries baked throughout the day right in front of your eyes!
All pastries and cakes are made on-site by Agathe herself and her head Chef Jimmy Clair. Agathe comes with professional training from top training school l'École de Boulangerie et de Pâtisserie in Paris and her head chef Jimmy brings years of training and experience working under renowned Paris based pâtissier Cyril Lignac.
An ever changing selection of croissants, pains au chocolat, madeleines, danishes, cruffins, canelés, pains aux raisins, Paris-brest, lemon meringues and tarts will be available.
Agathe also adds interesting sweet and savoury fillings to her croissants and danishes with flavours of pandan, red bean paste, matcha tea, strawberry, pistachio, croque monsieur and camembert. And her popular cruffins are filled to order with nutella, salted caramel, mojito and strawberry filling. It's no wonder she sells out in a few hours!
So if you're hungry for a taste of France and buttery goodness, pop into Agathe's pâtisserie first thing!
Agathé Pâtisserie is open every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday at South Melbourne Market in stalls 63 and 64. She will reopen in Prahran market very soon!
