West End Bakery – A real taste of France
West End Bakery – A real taste of France has finally arrived in Brisbane! My good friend Frédéric Bossenmeyer and his father Didier are 3rd and 2nd generation pastry chefs and bakers respectively from Strasbourg, France. Together they are owners/operators of the West End Bakery and Oxford Street Bakery (Bulimba) both located in the heart of West End and Oxford Street. Fred’s grandfather, Pierre Bossenmeyer, was first generation pastry chef and baker and ran the original family business from 1949 to 1990. Fred and his father share over 53 years experience working in boulangeries (bakeries) in France and Australia.
You don’t need to be a genius to work out that Fred is passionate about fine patisserie, decadent cakes and classic, rustic breads. This aficionado, eats, lives and sleeps handcrafted bakery goodies. Since his early childhood, he dreamt of owning his own shop when he saw his dad and grand-dad working at the family bakery. He started his apprenticeship back in 2002 in France and has since worked in the best bakeries around Brisbane.
Fast forward to 2015 – Fred now takes great pride in serving some of Brisbane’s finest cakes, patisseries and breads. You only need to see the attention to detail, and taste the delights that come out of their bakery to understand that you are being taken back to another place and time.
They are also the proud owners of an authentic French Bongard gas oven and make the most authentic French artisanal baguettes in Brisbane – all handmade the traditional way, crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. Check out the photos and see for yourselves! Oh, he even uses flour imported from France!
