10 years of history
La Galette de France was originally established in 2005 by Eric and Nadia Masure at the Subiaco Station Street Markets. It didn't take long for this little French duo to become well known for the high quality of their products and the friendliness of their service.
"We have always been proud of the values La Galette de France stands for, and for helping to train younger generations of aspiring bakers."
"We've kept all the good things and added a few more."
2015 started a new chapterSince its opening in January 2015, Nadia took the retail side management and ownership of the business and Eric the wholesale activity's, as the pair amicably ended their marriage, and each became independent owners of their half of the business.
"Our new focus is on giving our customers the experience of immersion in the French culture and traditions. We go beyond our offering of tasty authentic French food. We take you with us on a journey in our little parcel of France, right here in Perth, where the radio plays french songs and French news all day. Several regions of France are represented among us all, so there is a lot to learn about!"With the help of a great team led by cheeky Shop Manager Pierre and duty manager David, two young industry professionals committed to La Galette's philosophy and core values, Nadia has introduced to the already popular cooked to order Crêpe menu, a new range of French Café staple dishes that are getting great feedback.
as for Eric...
"Owner of La Galette de France Wholesale and Baker Extraordinaire" his hands in dough, he is still in command of his faithful team of bakers, spending most of his days and nights producing away a large range of baked good in his off-site commercial kitchen.
This keeps him very busy, as many of his products are complementing the brews of numerous high end Cafés around Perth.
For those of you who know him well, Eric remains the same. Forever reluctant to delegate part of his workload to anyone who doesn't share his expectation for quality. His loud distinctive voice resonates in the high ceiling workshop, often laughing uncontrollably over a silly joke, or grumpily mumbling that he is not happy about a batch of croissants that failed to rise properly. His favourite saying stands strong, even more so than ever:
"There is no substitute to quality." Oh...and this one too: "Yes, I'm French...what about it?... Nobody's perfect!" (followed by uncontrollable laughter) 🙂
Tasty food starts with quality ingredients
What is important to you is important to us. We source good quality ingredients for their superior nutritive value, but also because we believe that it makes all the difference in the taste of our end products.
We do not use already made bread, cake or filling mixes, or preservatives. We choose to use high quality butter over margarine, free range eggs and poultry, ham of the bone, premium quality fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairy products, as well as organic wheat flour from Terri and Dayle's Eden Valley Biodynamic Farm, to mention just a few.
"We love and respect the ingredients that we transform, and we love that it makes you happy"
"Thank you to all who have supported our business over the years." Eric & Nadia
