Sydney croissant fiends will do doubt be aware of the pink-hued, Northern Beaches bakery known as Rollers Bakehouse.
This groovy croissant mecca has been slinging some of Sydney’s best flaky pastries with a twist for a while now, and though we’ll never get sick of its decadent sushi-inspired croissants, the panini croissant or the banoffee twice-baked croissant, the latest hybrid treat from Rollers is a doozy.
Available from this Saturday 5 September, Rollers Bakehouse is dropping a meat pie mashup for Father’s Day. This newbie looks like an actual meat pie croissant featuring South American style seven-hour slow-cooked short rib from Bass Strait beef sourced locally from Fairlight Butcher and then topped with a classic Rollers croissant pastry lid.
The pie will only be available this weekend and comes with housemade tomato chutney on the side, because we all know a meat pie needs tommy sauce.
If you’re willing to stretch your belt for some more pastry euphoria, there’ll also be a cauliflower cheese twice-baked croissant with brushed harissa oil, filled with cheese bechamel and mozzarella.
You’ll also find a bergamot, cardamon, orange blossom and pistachio twice-baked croissant (topped with marshmallow, rose petals and bergamot jelly), a sticky date scroll pumped with butterscotch frangipane, a cookies and cream cruffin, and a confit garlic, herb and parmesan twist pastry topped with sea salt and chopped parsley.
We know you’ll do us proud and take the lot. For more info, head here.
