RACV Pastry Chef Josh Cochrane

Introducing our new Executive Pastry Chef: Josh Cochrane

Josh joined the Le Petit Gateau and City Club team at the end of 2017, and brings with him some fresh flavours and seasonal specialties – along with some signature dishes like….

Pineapple, Rosemary and Salted Caramel Eclair.
I developed this eclair for the Savour Patissier of the Year competition in 2017, and it took out first place against 23 other creations from pastry chefs from all over the world. I love introducing what could be seen as more “savoury” ingredients into my desserts. I don’t like them to be overly sweet – I like to let the natural flavours and sweetness of the fruits shine. The floral note in the rosemary works so well with beautiful, ripe pineapple.”

Enjoy Josh’s new creations now in Le Petit Gateau.  (Interview excerpt & photos taken from Royal Auto, February 2018)
