Kate Reid

Kate Reid studied aerospace engineering and spent several years working for a Formula One racing team before apprenticing at the famed Paris boulangerie Du Pain et des Idees. A single-minded perfectionist going against the mass produced grain, Kate Reid founded Melbourne’s first dedicated Croissanterie. She produces deliciously golden and flaky croissants, with a non-traditional but perfectly precise recipe. The New York Times recently said her croissant ‘may be the finest you will find anywhere in the world, and alone worth a trip across the dateline’.
