Spring in the City celebrations continue on Tuesday 6 October when Emmanuel Mollois, an extraordinary pastry chef known to anyone who has stepped inside Swanbourne's magnificent Choux Cafe, will appear to sign copies of his new book Et Voila! Emmanuel will be accompanied by a selection of his irresistable pastries.
To coincide with the annual Spring in the Valley celebrations, Perth's Boffins Bookshop is bringing Spring to the City. Commencing on Monday 5 October, five of Australia's leading chefs will appear at lunchtimes throughout the working week at Boffins. The week will feature four of WA's most celebrated local chefs - Jude Blereau, Emmanuel Mollois, Kate Lamont and Theo Kalogeracos - and the queen of Australian cooking, Stephanie Alexander. The culinary delights of each chef will be on show with samples of some of their signature dishes free to all who attend.
Emmanuel Mollois was born in 1969 in Blois (Loire valley). He completed an apprenticeship in cooking in Vendee then worked his way up through various restaurants in France. He spent five years working in highly rated gourmet restaurants in Paris, specializing in pastry making. He travelled the world before deciding to settle in Melbourne where he worked at La Brasserie in Toorak Road Victoria and The Willows on St Kilda Road. Emmanuel was head pastry Chef at the Loose Box in Mundaring which won numerous awards while he worked there. In 1999 he created the award-winning Le Paris Brest Patisserie Francaise in Perthâ€™s hills before deciding to move closer to the ocean. He now owns and runs the Choux CafÃ© in Swanbourne â€“ a small patisserie which was recently crowned â€˜best in the westâ€™ by the Sunday Times.
