Vive la French Boulangerie Revolution
World-famous Parisian boulanger-pâtissier Gontran Cherrier is opening his first boulangerie and café in Melbourne on Saturday 18 June at 7am.

Melbourne foodies, Francophiles and croissant addicts are invited to enjoy a complimentary famous buttery, French croissant (while stocks last, of course).

The boulangerie and café will feature Gontran's legendary croissants, baguettes and Gontran Cherrier signature black squid ink bread, as well as a saucisson and hazelnut bun, chocolate and cacao bread, honey ciabatta and other Australian native surprises designed by Gontran.

Highlights on the café menu include truffled cauliflower with Gruyere béchamel; spinach in miso and Rye bread; and a Japanese-inspired curry bun with crumbed pork, Tonkatsu sauce, kewpi mayo and slaw.

"I have had a lot of fun experimenting with different native Australian ingredients and can't wait to see how the locals react to my twist on some French classics with an Aussie edge," Gontran said.

The boulangerie and café features imported ovens from French company Bongard, imported French flour to keep the croissants sacred and an interior fit-out by Eades and Bergman. The all-important coffee will be roasted and brewed by global leaders, St Ali.

Pastry chef Kayte Perdrisat, who has more than 13 years' experience creating buttery delights, will help to unite modern Australian cuisine with classic French patisseries.

You will find Gontran Cherrier's Artisan Boulangerie at 140 Smith Street, Collingwood. It's open 7 days, from 7.00am to 6.00pm (kitchen closes at 3.00pm).
