Sweet Pic-Nic Rendez-Vous! N°3 - Cocktail Party + Bubbles


Welcome to a pure moment of indulgence and gourmandise!

This event is a perfect opportunity to discover and eat the most famous French pastries that you can find everywhere in France but not easily in Melbourne. It'll be the occasion as well to meet new people, learn something and taste new treats served with homemade lemonade or tea depending on the weather. We'll meet to discover each time different pastries in various locations around Melbourne. We can speak, of course, in English but also in French for who wants :)

This time we'll celebrate with a Cocktail pastries party + Bubbles!

It might be one of the last Sweet PicNic Rendez-vous that we can organise outside in the nice weather... So let's make the most of the end of the Summer! 

You'll have the chance to try a festival of Petits-Fours (means nibbles in French) including an assortment of:

Madeleine / Mini fresh Strawberry and Vanilla mousseline cream Tart / Mini Lemon Meringue Tart / Financier (almond cake) / Mini Chocolate Eclair

+ A glass of French sparkling Wine / Handmade Lemonade or Tea

I invite you to check my website to learn more about the composition of each pastry: Petite Cherie.

I'm looking forward to seeing you and savouring with you soon!


I have created Petite Chérie, the online shop specialised in French pastries, few month ago. Petite Chériepâtisserie française, provides authentic French cakes 100% handmade with traditional recipes.  As I am French, I trained as a  pastry chef in Paris (France) and came to share with you in Melbourne a fine selection of the most famous pastries. I use only natural ingredients (nothing artificial! No additive, no preservative, no artificial colour or flavour).

Meet Petite Chérie


I’m Sandra, a passionate gourmet pastry chef originally from Paris, who chose to move to Australia and fell in love with the city of Melbourne, capital of fashion, culture and gastronomy.

I trained in Paris, France and qualified through production experience at prestigious Parisian pastry shops.


In France, food is more than just a part of the culture, it’s an Art. Setup a beautiful table, appreciate refined dishes and share with friends and family.

The greatest French pastry chefs in history worked to develop the best recipes and found the perfect balance between flavour and textures, between tastes and sensations.

My idea is to offer a new experience and sharing the authentic taste of pastries from my country. I focus on a selective collection of the most famous French recipes.


Working with premium and natural ingredients is of the highest importance. Free range eggs only. No artificial flavour, no artificial colour, no additive and no preservative.

I prioritise ingredients from local suppliers. Cakes are 100% handmade, from scratch to finish. Only to order, to ensure maximum freshness. I want to make sure that I give you the best. You know you’re getting“heaps” of goodness every time you order!
