Auckland’s latest pâtisserie brings the streets of Paris right to our doorstep.
Say bonjour to La Petite Fourchette, a drool-worthy haven to all things sweet and savoury that has the Auckland foodie scene going cray. The little sister of beloved St Heliers treasure La Fourchette, owners Roman and Natalie Le Gal have spread the love to Wynyard Central, the city's latest up and coming hot spot for all things delicious.
A hop skip and a jump from Silo Park, just follow the sweet sweet smell of freshly baked goods and step inside to discover a wondrous offering worth raving about. From cakes, croissants and classics done right, to crazy colourful creations, we guarantee it’ll be love at first bite.
You don’t want to miss the millie feuille, a traditional French dessert with a modern twist. This bad boy features puff pastry encasing a heavenly oozing vanilla custard topped with salted caramel. YUM.
Or opt for the fabulous vanilla tart. Smooth and creamy with just the perfect amount of vanilla bean, just a taste will rock your tastebuds’ world.
If you’re really looking to try something new, look no further than the mandarin and olive oil macaroon. A combination that seems so wrong, but tastes SO right. It’s a must for the foodie bucket list.
Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, they even have a selection of vegan offerings! Achieving the seemingly impossible, La Petit Fourchette has created a vegan pavlova that will blow your mind.
You’ll be the food envy of the office with one of La Petit Fourchette’s loaded baguette. With an equally enticing savoury selection, you’ll also find quiche, and interchanging salads that'll have you clock watching and counting down to lunch. But that's not all! They also serve soup! Brewed daily and bubbled to perfection, these are the perfect winter warmer.
After a taste only one question remained, were we in Paris or Auckland? It's anyone's guess! But one thing's for sure, La Petite Fourchette is not one to miss.
