From humble beginnings in France, to now over 480 shops world-wide, the internationally acclaimed confectioner Jeff de Bruges is open for business in Westfield Bondi Junction. The classic chocolates with modern twists are hand-crafted by master chocolatiers in Belgium, many still inspired by the original French recipes.
'Jeff de Bruges is a brand recognized and respected throughout Europe and I wanted to introduce that high quality and sophisticated chocolate culture to Australia," said Roland Tabet, Owner Jeff de Bruges Sydney. 'The food culture in Australia is constantly evolving and I felt that our products deliver the tastes, textures and variety desired by Australians looking to expand their palate."
In 1986 Jeff de Bruges was created by Philippe Jambon, Founding President. The franchise now has about 50 shops abroad including Spain, Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, Morocco, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
Jeff de Bruges Sydney offers chocolates for all occasions. From classic and seasonal collections of intense dark chocolate to smooth milk chocolate to infused with nuts, biscuits and fruit for depth of flavour and added texture. The range can be custom curated or pre-arranged in beautiful baskets, bowls and platters.
'Not only do we believe in the quality of our chocolate, we also believe in responsible cocoa farming," said Tabet. 'The Jeff de Bruges Quality Partner Program fosters programs that increases sustainable growing practices as well as the quality of life for the growers."
The boutique also offers luscious soft-serve ice-cream with flavours ranging from chocolate, vanilla, caramel and strawberry. The coveted, creamy goodness is imported from France and can be enhanced with tasty toppings of biscuits, fresh fruits and a generous drizzle of chocolate sauce.
