Lavie and Belle French Bakery is your local French artisan Bakery on Bastille Festival
LaVie and Belle French Bakery presents Traditional French baguettes, delicious buttery croissants, authentic “Croque Monsieur” and many tasty treats made from French family old recipes.
Christian Bonne and Kareen Ferrali are French. The Sydney newcomers have just opened their first bakery, Lavie & Belle in Surry Hills. “We are all French. There are many bakeries in Australia. If I want to be different from other bakeries my choice is to make entirely French products,” says Bonne, Lavie’s baker and recent graduate from Ecole Française de Boulangerie & Pâtisserie d’Aurillac (a prestigious French baking school). He’s true to his word – there’s no matcha sponges, black-sesame creams or salted caramel in anything here. He’s more interested in making the perfect baguette. “The bread is our signature. It’s a long fermentation, 24 to 48 hours. I use French flour with no additives or preservatives and French butter,” he says.
At Lavie and Belle, you will find a variety of bread and it’s interesting to know that there are hundreds of varieties of breads made across France.
Regardless of what your preferred taste is, you are sure to find a French cake, a pastry or a delicious sandwich that suits your palate, simply walk to Lavie & Belle on BBR Village, Bastille Festival from 13 to 16 July 2017, Circular Quay foreshore.
