Bonjour Eric, ca va?

Nice to catch up with Eric at Les Gourmandises in Moruya over a coffee.

Eric is a very familiar face to those who know the Blue Earth Cafe in Bodalla. As many have now discovered Les Gourmandises has expanded into the space next door with tables, chairs and lounges. In addition to their breads, quiches, pies and pastries they now also have set menu dinners each month. Joe and Isabelle Hennequin are the owners of Les Gourmandises located at the IGA mall, Moruya. Joe is originally from the French Reunion Island and Isabelle from the Brie (south of Paris). Joe loves his bread and croissants, inspired as a young boy by his father’s passion for baking. Joe has continued the family tradition, baking fresh bread every morning and Moruya has seen his passion develop and grow. Isabelle’s life-long passion for cooking began with her family at their coastal summer holidays, which were spent in Brittany, France, where cooking and great food was the heart of it all. Isabelle’s passion for French food and cooking led her to found “A La Table d’Isabelle”, a local catering business in Moruya where she creates the real French food dining experience for local events as well as hosting a variety of French food events. Joe and Isa combined their passion for baking and cooking to open a French bakery stall at the Moruya Market, which quickly became a local staple.
