French pas­try chef’s Fin­ley slice de­light

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Fin­ley Bak­ery and Patis­serie’s sig­na­ture vanilla slice has re­ceived a seal of ap­proval from an ex­pert French pas­try chef.

Fin­ley Bak­ery pas­try chef Micka Lit­tle­john has spent months per­fect­ing in­gre­di­ents and mixes for the slice, which sells out.

French pas­try chef Herve Boutin re­cently trav­elled to the lo­cal bak­ery and said the vanilla slice was among the best he’s tasted.

‘‘The Fin­ley vanilla slice has a very nice, thin pas­try, beau­ti­ful smooth cus­tard and is very tasty,’’ Mr Boutin said af­ter try­ing a sam­ple.

Fin­ley Bak­ery owner An­drew Richard­son said the re­view from Mr Boutin was a great hon­our.

Mr Richard­son thanked his staff for the ef­fort that goes into their work.

‘‘All food is pre­pared at the bak­ery. The bak­ing staff start work at 3am to en­sure our cus­tomers are pro­vided with fresh bread, pies, cakes and slices.’’
