Ready-to-use pastry dough.
Carême Pastry specialises in high quality, ready-to-use pastry dough. A family run business located in the Barossa Valley, the company’s aim was always to provide a range of the finest handcrafted pastry products made using traditional methods and all natural ingredients. Free from additives, preservatives, colourings, stabilisers and relaxants, Carême Pastry’s products are of the highest standard. Even famous cook Stephanie Alexander has attested that she uses Carême Pastry and would never make her own puff pastry again.
Owner William Wood comes from a restaurant background and was always disappointed with the quality of commercially available ready-made pastry. Now, with his Carême Pastry brand, he can offer a fine range of wholesale pastry that is as good as homemade.
