Shop Specials!

18th May, 2018

Today we’ve unveiled our new shop-front in Marrickville. It’s not too big a change, but we’ve decided to make our product more easily accessible to our loyal customers and give it some love for the upcoming winter season… Along with the minor fixer-upper comes a whole new batch of product and specials.

The savings are absolutely unreal… We’ve got cookies for $1, bags of muesli for $10, Sausage/Spinach & Feta rolls for $5 a box (I know right! Come and feed the family!) and Caramel Slice for $5 a box too… the sales continue in-store.

Come and give us a visit to cop some hearty treats for as little as $4… That’s couch money!

Fantastic Food & Drink 2018!

17th May, 2018

At the beginning of the month we, Epicurean Kitchen, attended the Fantastic Food & Drink Expo in Darling Harbour, Sydney. The expo was held at the ICC Centre, which is newly built, making for an excellent space to present a myriad of products. Our stall was in collaboration with Opera Foods and we created a beautiful mess atop our fridge to showcase our delicious products.

We had large success with oncoming interest from consumers, distributors and small business’, sampling 4 iconic Epicurean products for 2 days straight. Tiramisu, New York Cheesecake, Carrot & Pineapple Cake and our Sydney Mud Cake. If you saw us at the show, come on down to our store in Marrickville and cop some extremely good prices for the products you love!

We’d like to say a big thanks to Opera Foods for giving us a home at this event & to the fantastic event coordinators (pun intended) for accomodating our needs and making the expo an absolute pleasure.

SPOTLIGHT: Tiramisu, the Italian Classic

11th May, 2018

Espresso infused white chocolate mousse, layered between coffee-soaked sponge fingers, topped with dusting chocolate and finished with dark chocolate biscuit crumb, a creamy indulgent slice of coffee lovers heaven. After showcasing our Tiramisu at the Fantastic Food & Drink Expo, the overwhelming chorus of “mmm’s” and “wow’s” caused me to investigate why Epicurean Kitchen’s Tiramisu is just that good.

Tiramisu originated in Veneto, Italy, meaning “cheer-me up” or “pick me up”. There is a myriad of ways and process involved with making a version of the widely renowned dessert, including lots of alcohol, mascarpone and almonds, although the alleged ‘original’ recipe never used alcohol. There are a variety of other things you can use instead of traditional lady finger biscuits or ‘savoiardi’ as the Italians were sure to let me know when we were sampling… some of these options could be panettone, sponge or other sugary breads. The “ladyfinger” aspect could also be doused in Marsala, Kahlua, Tia Maria or other liqueurs depending on the overall flavor you’d be going for such as substituting it for Malibu or Brandy or Port or whatever your Nonna has in her cupboard…

After talking to the creator of the recipe himself, George, he told me that he adapted the recipe from an older cake called the Brandy Alexander Cake. Instead of soaking the sponge fingers in Brandy, he suggested dipping them in espresso coffee and adding a light dusting of sugar and cocoa powder to the top to create an original and innovative take on the classic cake. The dulled intensity of the cult espresso flavor is created by the espresso infused white chocolate mousse, presenting a robust and velvety taste yet simple to digest and easy on your palette. That mixture of juxtaposing tastes is what sets our classic Tiramisu cake apart from the rest.

Try it for yourself…

How to Host the Perfect Dinner Party

7th December, 2016

Tis the season for festive dinner parties and endless gatherings of friends and family. Perhaps it is your turn to host or to provide desserts, if so, we have got you covered.

The first thing you need to do is organise a guest list, try to choose people that you know will get along and remove the possibility of awkward dinner table chat and arguments about politics…

After you’ve deliberated your guest list, it’s super important to send out invites as the holiday season is jam-packed with events and obligatory functions. Be sure to include any additional information about a possible theme/pot-luck type of dinner.

Furthermore, the menu is a fundament for the gathering, so to start, identify any dietary requirements of your guests and then start to plan. Try to make the menu seasonal and interwoven, you wouldn’t want to serve a fresh fruity appetiser and a broth – it just wouldn’t go! Ensure that the menu also coordinates with the dessert, the most important part. It’s Christmas, people want to indulge and put their summer bodies on hold and any of Epicurean’s new and improved Christmas range would work perfectly at any dinner party. Try our Christmas slice or pudding and there’s even some cupcakes and Christmas themed mallow cones for the kids!

Once you’ve organised all of the above, it’s the perfect time to deck the table! Scout your local dollar stores for simplistic items such as glassware and candles. Don’t be afraid to splurge on a few statement pieces for the table… Pinterest always comes in handy!

Now on the day, bust out the Christmas bangers, dress up & drink up! Our guide to the perfect dinner party will be sure to make your event a success!

Is Imitation the Highest Form of Flattery?

8th November, 2016

It’s hard to invent new ideas so we tend to innovate. Take existing ideas and throw your twist on them. The dessert industry is the same. Cakes and slices and treats are innovated every day with flavours and concepts that exceed the common imagination, but imitation goes both ways.

Companies with the same nature as Epicurean Kitchen often take ideas from our cakes and create their own. There is little problem with that except when they fail to meet the same standards of our product. Our iconic Mortal Sin cake is the most thieved idea among many cake shops, imitating the stratigraphic format. The four layers consist of a crumbly chocolate biscuit base topped with a smooth baked cheesecake layer, a dense hand folded mousse on top of that and the final layer is rich butterscotch cream.

It is no doubt that the cake has been copied and copied for years, but some fail to imitate. Which causes confusion and can ultimately damage the reputation of the glorious cake.

Perhaps it is the greatest compliment, but always strive for the best.

(And by that we mean, click the link below to buy the OG Mortal Sin!) Because it would be ungodly not to…

Petite’s – What’s the go?

17th September, 2016

Our 2016 development of the Petite’s range is just what your storefront needs this summer. There are a wealth of reasons why the Petite’s are charming and delicious and a small but enormous asset to any business.

The Petite’s come in a range of delicious flavours, taking the most imperative features from the already existing product and gloriously transforming it into a small, bite-sized snack! There are Lemon, Lemon Meringue, Mixed Nut, Passionfruit, Raspberry and Salted Caramel Petites, all satisfying that desire for an in-between, sweet treat.

img_1114Advantageously speaking, the range are the perfect intermediate between a sugar craving and a nibble, an appetite for dessert but an appreciation for pint-sized things. Like those mini food tutorials that make people who hate cooking, want to cook. It’s a powerful concept, turning things tiny, often increasing the desire to obtain something if it is reduced to a minuscule state, thus portraying the value this range can add to your restaurant, cafe, event or gut.

All jokes aside, the Petite range highlight all the good parts of our signature products and can be brought together in a Mixed Petite’s Box valued at $20, containing 6 of those cute dessert bites.

Why Goodsome?

12th July, 2016

IMG_0843 (1)IMG_0893

What’s so goodsome about our brand new goodsome range? Well, these days it hard to find a dessert product that’s handmade, fresh and packed full of goodness, whilst still tasting good. Most products disguise their sugar input by using fake sugars such as ‘sucrose’ or ‘aspartame’, then claiming that the foo d has 0% sugar but is packed full of artificial sugar substitutes. 

This is why here at Epicurean Kitchen we have strived to create a product that is simple, delicious and clean so there’s no guilty feeling afterwards! With as little as 19 grams of carbs in our Simple Chocolate Cake and only three ingredients, there’s no going wrong with a cup of tea and some cake after dinner.

Our delicious Wholegrains range is encompassing the current trends of grain products and stone fruits. Produced from a simple meal, nuts and seeds and topped with berries, pepita seeds and various stone fruits, all unprocessed and kind to your body.

So before you go to buy the ‘low carb, no sugar’ muffin from the supermarket, check the ingredients and try our new Goodsome range.
