Wagyu pithivier (a hard-to-master French pie) with chicken glaze. A hot-croissant-bun hybrid. A fancified sausage roll with topnotch produce. Savoury eggplant and 'nduja croissant. And a flaky tart topped with creme patissiere and mandarins.
These are some of the creations at Lode, a bakery and pastry shop with a fine dining edge by celebrated chef Federico Zanellato (Lumi Dining and Restaurant Leo) and ex-Lumi chef Lorenzo Librino.
Normally you can only pick up the decadent treats at its Surry Hills shop, but for one day, Lode's whole range will be available out in Parramatta. Find it at Circa Espresso while stocks last.
From 7am until sold out.
