True Brisbane dessert lovers will be familiar with Lady Bouchon Cakes and The Pie Hole, and will no doubt rejoice at news this cake queen and pastry pro are teaming up in a new bakery.
Details as yet are scarce and their website isn’t live yet, but The Courier Mail reports that Brass Tacks, a bakery and deli from Lady Bouchon’s Catherine Marot and The Pie Hole’s Isaac Hull is set to open at the end of the year in Albion’s new Craft’d Grounds.
The long-time friends both currently sell their wares—stunning cakes for Catherine, and incredible small-batch pies and tarts for Isaac—through Collingwood Black Espresso, and they will be available at Brass Tacks when it opens.
In addition, the new venue will stock a good range of local, regional and Australian-only cheeses and charcuterie, and salads, sandwiches, croissants and provisions for dine-in or take away.
Craft’d Grounds, a new lifestyle and food precinct opening in an old timber mill in Albion, is owned by Collingwood Black owners James and Kirstie Rennell.
The 2600 sq m lifestyle and food precinct will feature a restaurant, patisserie, fromagerie, fitness facility and coffee roaster as well as a huge 500 sq m brewpub, and will host a regular farmers market and feature a street-art lined laneway.
