Who We Are:
Traditional French bakery using old authentic French recipes and methods.
What We Do:
LePéché Gourmand Boulangerie – Patisserie is a French bakery-pastry shop in the heart of the Goldfields in Creswick, Victoria. Creswick is at the opening of the Macedon Ranges, a short 10 minute drive from Ballarat, 15 minutes drive from the historic town of Clunes where gold was first found in Victoria, 20 minutes from the Mineral springs of Hepburn and Daylesford, and the wineries of the Pyrenees.
We wanted to share this passion for food we both have with bringing you a new perspective and also enjoy and share this tradition. We do use traditional methods and classic recipes. We do “reuse” the dough, which means we mix new dough everyday and then add some from the previous day. It allows us to use less and less yeast as it feeds from itself. It also brings a lot of gavour and is called “pain au levain”.
By far the best French pastries I have tasted. The pastry is fresh, crispy and you can taste real butter. Add a superb cup of coffee and you have a gourmet experience to remember. Forget the chewy bread like stuff you find at the supermarket or bread shop.
