A few weeks ago, Britomart welcomed a new French bakery-patisserie. La Petite Fourchette is born from Romain and Natalie, a French-kiwi couple settled in New Zealand since 2006, out of a desire to create their own patisserie range “à la française”.
Romain and Natalie met while working together in a pizzeria in Chamonix (France). In 2006, they decided to move to Auckland and few years later opened their first restaurant called L’Assiette with one goal in mind, to share and help New Zealanders discover their passion and love for French cuisine and the unique “French savoir-faire”.
La Petite Fourchette first started in 2018 in Wynyard Quarter. Originally, to supply patisseries to the second restaurant of the couple, La Fourchette in St Heliers, then they made the move to open their second shop in September in what used to be L’Assiette, which was completely renovated to welcome the second patisserie outlet. Pains au chocolat, éclairs, lemon meringue tartelettes, and macarons… everything is homemade and designed by their French pâtissier Vatthana. The products like cheeses are directly imported from France and used in their savoury range for the not to be missed croques-monsieur, ham and cheese baguettes, Lorraine quiches, or in their All-Day Breakfast Menu. We are salivating already!
The menu changes seasonally and can be enjoyed on site or to take-away. The atmosphere is chic and cozy, and the team is always smiling. We have found our new favorite go-to.
