Carême Pastry is a family run business specialising in making a range of high quality, ready-to-use pastry dough. Owned and operated by William and Claire Wood, we are located in Tanunda in the Barossa Valley South Australia. Established in 2005 with the aim of providing a range of the finest handcrafted pastry products made using traditional methods from natural ingredients; free from additives, preservatives and colourings. Stabilizers, relaxants or any other additives commonly used in mass production are not used in the making of our pastry dough. Our products are genuinely handmade in order to maintain the highest quality.
Carême is named in recognition of the great Master Chef and Pâtissier, Antonin Carême (1783-1833), an orphan of the French revolution who, through self-education, became the most celebrated chef of his time. Revered for his skill and ingenuity he likened the art of pastry to that of architecture and the Pâtissier to a master builder. His legacy can be found in the finest European pâtisseries and in the Carême range of traditional pastry.
