Fortitude Valley’s DoughLord eyes Brisbane’s dessert crown
Brisbane’s dessert scene is booming, which is great, except for the fact that it’s hard to decide which treat you should blow your dough on when the cravings strike. DoughLord is the newest entrant in the fight for your patronage, and it is making a great argument in its own favour with a flavoursome range of edible cookie dough. That’s right – you no longer have to run the risk of an upset stomach eating the pre-packaged stuff. DoughLord’s dough is safe to eat and comes packed with a range of toppings and soft-serve ice-cream to boot.
After several years working in the hospitality industry, brothers Jasper and Felix were itching to tackle a new venture. With considerable kitchen experience under their belts, the duo sought out a dessert niche where they could flex their culinary muscles and bring something new to Brisbane’s sweet-treat scene. On a trip to New York City the boys encountered edible cookie dough for the first time, and figured it would go down a treat here in Brisbane. Jasper and Felix settled on a spot next to Giardinetto on Brunswick Street to install DoughLord – their edible cookie-dough dispensary – and started dishing out scoops of the good stuff early this week.
As many of us know (and some of us learn the hard way), store-bought cookie dough is not safe to eat raw. DoughLord’s dough does away with the eggs and uses heat-treated flour to remove the nasty bacteria. Unlike the dough they tasted in New York, which was incredibly sweet, Jasper and Felix looked to use less sugar where possible, making a lighter and fluffier dough that was a milder base upon which they could build up their flavour range. Every day the duo freshly churns the dough and pairs it with gourmet ingredients, whipping up eight flavours – including one special – for sweet teeth to devour. Must-try flavours include classic choc chip, hazelnut crunch with praline, salted caramel, peanut butter brownie and red velvet. Soft-serve ice-cream is also available to pair with your dough selection (cookie-dough sundaes, anyone?) while the dough can also be cooked at home if you have a craving for cookies.
