A good breakfast always blows my mind away! If you are following this blog close enough, you will notice that I am actually in a breakfast/brunch hunt. And From Scratch Patisserie is my newest addiction! This patisserie is a proud child of a pair of young couple, Johnny and Edwina.
I always adore pastry, loving the softness and buttery texture of the layers. Different toppings or fillings can come in as a surprise because you will be amazed by their impeccable combination with the pastry. Gahh! A beautiful morning can be birthed through a satisfying breakfast.
From Scratch Patisserie provides a few series of pastry for its customers to choose from, including brioche, cookies, croissants, danish, tarts, sfogliatelle, fritata, pies, eclairs and macarons. They look so tempting and I am spoilt for choices!
Pain Au Chocolat
Croissant like pastry with dark chocolate sticks baked inside. This is my favourite of all! It is soft, flaky and buttery with chocolate flowing out when you take a bite. Given that I am a croissant and chocolate lover, I can never get sick of this! A must try!
Layers of wafer like pastry with a cooked ricotta and semolina custard, citron peel, cinnamon and vanilla. It has a hard crusty covering with a generous serve of smooth custard inside. The custard has a mild flavour as ricotta does not really stand out.
Almond pasted pastry with apples, cinnamon and vanilla baked with a biscuit crumble on top. This is one of the most popular pastry in the patisserie. The biscuit crumble complements the apple well, which reminds me of apple crumble. It is not too sweet though.
Laminated pastry rolled up and baked with vanilla custard and raspberry then rolled in cinnamon sugar. This is the most popular pastry and I can see the reason of its popularity. The layer of pastry is prominent and soft. A small bite will release the buttery flavour together with its raspberry fillings. Highly recommended!
Wham Bam Strawberry Jam
Seasonal fruit danish - flaky yet buttery pastry topped with seasonal fruits. This is not too bad, but I find the layers to be harder than the one in Pain Au Chocolat.
Hazelnut pasted scroll with cinnamon and vanilla roasted peanuts, hazelnuts and almonds. The hazelnut paste becomes the limelight of the pastry, accompanied by different kind of nuts. Like the wham bam strawberry jam, I find the pastry a little bit hard.
