What's better than one Brisbane store dedicated to all the cakes, pastries, pies and other sweet and savoury baked products your stomach can handle? Two, of course. Yes, Jocelyn's Provisions is finally spreading their delicious wares around town and opening up a second shop.
The sibling location will be called Albion Provisions — and, as the name suggests, it'll serve up all the handmade goodies Jocelyn's fans know and love in the northside suburb. Come October, Sandgate Road will be abuzz with Turkish delight cheesecakes, triple choc brownies and poached fruit and almond tarts, plus beef and red wine pies and Cornish pasties.
The latest news comes hot on the heels of a few recent changes, including Jocelyn's move just up the road from its original Fortitude Valley site, and the introduction of chocolate and chilli mini bars, four new types of savoury tart and two new sausage roll flavours to their menu. We hope you're hungry, because additional dishes are just going to keep on popping up. With another venue will come even more biscuits, chocolates, nougat, panforte and preserves, just to name a few of their delectable offerings.
That's quite the way to mark Jocelyn's twentieth birthday, with Albion's purpose-built bakery certain to be pumping out mouth-watering concoctions in no time, and its test kitchen also opening its doors to on-site cooking classes. It's also the best news we've heard since the woman who initially started the whole endeavour opened up a different venture. Let's be honest, you really can't have too many of these tasty treats.
Find Albion Provisions at Sandgate Road, Albion from October. Keep an eye on the Jocelyn's Provisions website and Facebook page for further details.
