13 years in the making..
Earlier this week Bizzarri Dolci Handmade Biscuits celebrated its 13th year of business..YAY!
The philosophy has been simple - create handmade biscuits and other baked delights with natural fresh ingredients.. so they taste like they should (and that's exactly what we've done!)
See below for some images throughout our 13 years and the story of how it all begun...
Here's a snippet of how Bizzarri Dolci came to be what it is today..
Monette Bizzarri trained as a chef in Melbourne, beginning her apprenticeship when she was 16 years old. She always had a particular love for pastry work and when she studied under the French master Michel Roux, she realised her dream of one day doing what she loved in a business of her own.
So when did it all begin? The Bizzarri name was first put on the Melbourne food map 28 years ago, when the family opened their first restaurant Cafe Bizzarri, located in Toorak Village. Since then, the Bizzarri family have dished out countless, lovingly made meals to foodies all around Melbourne. Following Cafe Bizzarri came Bizzarri Restaurant Two - located in the Como Centre in South Yarra.
After many successful years in the industry, Monette (being the family member who was always very dessert oriented) decided to act on her dream and share her passion for baking by creating ‘real’ biscuits - and the only way she could see this happening was to make them by hand...
The small kitchen in Malvern East initially started off with all of 1 employee. Monette. She worked day and night, baking, chocolate dipping and packaging biscuits in order to produce the best quality biscuits for her loyal customer base. Not too long after this, Monette slowly employed a team of professionals who shared the same passion as her. Before she knew it, the kitchen was constantly buzzing. New biscuit lines were being created and hundreds of biscuits were being baked and delivered to customers every week. Before long, the Bizzarri team decided it was time to open the doors of the Bizzarri Dolci kitchen to the public.
....13 years on and Bizzarri Dolci is situated at 1395 Malvern Road, Malvern. We have a busy bakery and retail store constantly filled with biscuits.. old favourites and a large range of new ones. Wholesaling to a variety of delis and food stores around Australia, Bizzarri Dolci still makes each and every biscuit by hand one by one. Each biscuit is hand-made, hand-dipped, hand-packaged and handed over to you - our loyal customers of 13 amazing years. We can't wait to see what the future holds for this constantly evolving business, and we can't wait to share with you all the new products we have in store for this year!
