Melbourne's new-wave eclairs

This precisely piped eclair is filled with a thick, latte-coloured salted caramel filling and dotted with droplets of citrusy melted chocolate. The rich, salty filling is balanced by the addition of a tempered dark chocolate sheet. A drizzle of salted caramel glues the chocolate to the choux and adds to the two-handed salty/sweet palate punch. Makes for a decadent treat.

Noisette on Postcards

Noisette-on-PostcardsRecently Postcards, Channel 9's Victorian-based travel program, stopped past our Port Melbourne shop as part of a special on Melbourne's shopping strips. As part of the bustling Bay Street community, Noisette was proud to have the crew visit.

We are not 100% sure how much of their visit will make it in to the final episode but either way, if you are watching the TV, check out the show at 5.30pm 8 September on Channel 9 as a way of supporting local shopping precincts!

You don't have to travel to Paris for old-fashioned French pastry perfection. Fifth-generation baker David Menard's busy little boulangerie/patisserie is the place to go to dip a light-as-a-feather croissant in a bowl of café au lait.
