Get your sweet mitts on French pastries and woodfired sourdough from 5B2F Bakehouse
One of the Gold Coast’s most decorated pastry chefs, Moonsun Yoo, has opened his flagship patisserie and bakehouse in Chirn Park, called 5B2F Bakehouse. Yes, our pastry and sourdough-loving friends, we can hear your cheers.
With decades of experience as an international pastry chef, Moonsun has spent the last few years facilitating some of the city’s most prominent sweet-eateries, including Providore and the former Sweets venue at the Brickworks on Ferry Road, and the ever-popular Passion Tree venues. The all-new 5B2F Bakehouse, which stands for ‘five bread, two fish’, is bringing everything from fresh-made woodfired sourdough, to housemade pies and sausage rolls, cronuts, croissants (for those wondering, there are plain, almond and chocolate varieties) and a mind-blowing selection of intricate French pastries and fine sweets. Plus, with Toby’s Estate in the grinder, you know you’ll be able to enjoy that blueberry danish with a top-notch latte in hand.
Let’s just take a moment to talk about the sourdough – 5B2F’s signature sourdough doesn’t contain yeast. Instead, the talented bakers keep the fermentation process completely natural by making their own starter culture with the juice of grapes and apples, which takes about three weeks to prepare, to activate the bread perfectly – it gets put through a fancy custom-built 2.5tonne woodfire oven, and the result is amazingly different to your usual sourdough. So, if you want that feeling of pure happiness when you get a loaf of sourdough home and it’s still so warm that the knob of butter melts straight away (you know the feeling), then you should probably get your buns to Chirn Park for your next morning loaf.
