MELBOURNE | With hospo back open, I’ve been eating out more and doing less home deliveries. There are, however, still a lot of small hospo business out there doing delivery of all sorts of things.
Browsing through Instagram the other day, I saw Korean pop-up restaurant Chae post about a cookie delivery from The Flour. They looked good, so I decided to do some research. Liking what I saw, I placed an order.
South Korean born ex-Rockpool pastry chef April Yoonhee Bae started The Flour in 2017, after discovering canelés while travelling overseas. The focus was originally on canelés, but April soon expanded to an assortment of baked treats.
I spoke to April, who told me that she loves putting unique flavour twists into her creations. Think French history and technique meets Australian flavour. In fact, it was April’s use of seasonal native Australian fruits and ingredients that really grabbed my attention when I was browsing The Flour website.
Think things like rye wattleseed and almond nougat cookies, lemon myrtle shortbread biscuits, and Davidson plum sables. I went for the assorted cookies & biscuits box, and loved everything in there.
The Flour is based in Kew East, and while there’s no physical shop (yet) you can order through The Flour website for delivery across Melbourne.
If you’re a fan of quality baked goods with a twist, I highly recommend putting in an order for some of April’s treats.
