Lady Poire

“Lady Poire” is a medley of mouth-watering fruity and nutty flavours. After tasting Aroha’s apple and pear juice, Thomas decided to use the juice to create a sweet jelly and mousse tarte, pairing it with locally produced walnuts from Trickett’s Grove for the walnut dacquoise and homemade praline.  


The Selwyn Ciabatta

A popular request for ciabatta bread was what prompted Ma Petite bakery’s chef Thomas Holleaux to create “The Selwyn Ciabatta”, using Minchins Milling’s flour from Sheffield and South Lea olive oil from Southbridge. Because the flour is being milled stoneground, Thomas found it gave the ciabatta a strong flavour, enhancing the flavour of the olive oil and giving it a unique dark crumb.
