First look – an ex-Agnes Bakery alumnus and ARC chef to ‘bake over’ Jocelyn’s Provisions

Anyone that endured the lengthy line snaking out Agnes' lauded carb-loaded pop-up bakery last year can attest that one bite of its smoked potato sourdough bread was enough to make the whole wait worth it. Well, what would you say if we told you that one of the bakers behind that sell-out product is teaming up with some other local culinary elite for a series of foodie events, starting with a take over of Albion's Jocelyn's Provisions on Sunday May 30? Yes, it's really happening, and you can expect killer kouign amanns, bang-on bee stings, revelatory Roman-style pizzas, pies wrapped in buttery puff pastry and, of course, plenty of loaves of smoked potato sourdough. more

Take your sweet tooth down memory lane with Arty’s artisanal treats

While we're extremely partial to a freshly opened pack of Oreos, a cheeky handful of Maltesers or, in a pinch, some fruit-and-nut chocolate, we often find ourselves pining for the sweets of our youth. We're talking pillowy soft marshmallows, decadent chocolate fudge and moreish blocks of tablet. Our sweet tooth must have been broadcasting our cravings to the universe, because some like-minded chefs have taken their own nostalgia for classic sweets and used it to power Arty's – a new mouth-watering confection concept that's officially launching on Saturday May 8. more

Sweet dreams (are made of this) – South Bank welcomes dessert dispensary Ice Dream

Ice-cream is amazing by itself, but it's hard to deny that just about every scoop of ice-cream can be improved with a tasteful (and tasty) topping. But what if the topping was weaved into the ice-cream itself? We're not talking about crudely crushed and mashed in confections – think ingredients smoothly blended and imbued in each spiral of soft-serve. Ice Dream in South Bank has taken some cues from international dessert trends for its Grey Street pop-up, where all sorts of tasty combinations are whipped up in a flash. more

When lockdowns made us crazy, croissants helped. When restrictions had us down in the dumps, we turned to doughnuts. Even though a new year has started, we're not expecting our dependence on carbs to lessen, which is good, because newly opened Bulimba bakery and patisserie Darvella has some treats that are too irresistible to ignore. This European-inspired dispensary is slinging gooey Nutella-filled doughnuts, Swiss-chocolate infused croissants and heavenly cakes by the score.
