Event Report : An afternoon tea with Byron Bay Cookie at Bistro Rex


at Bistro Rex


When Byron Bay Cookie sent an invitation to an afternoon tea, you say yes. I am very thrilled to be there amongst amazing females in food. I was also there to try out the dessert collaboration between Christina Manfield and Bistro Rex's Jo Ward and Michelle Powell. The dessert is called Pear and Ginger Spice Crumble and is here to celebrate the launch of Christina X Byron bay Cookies' newest cookie flavour 'Ginger Spice Cream Cookie' which was by the way, really good. We were lucky enough to taste the new cookie before it is available for public from September 1st in David Jones (or online)

The dessert, Pear and Ginger Spice Crumble, was a whole new experience. I should've clearly wrote down the components of the whole dessert when Christina was explaining it but instead I was busy digging in because...... come on, it is a special dessert :) The only thing I can remember was how good it tasted, the texture of the dessert as whole. So there were cookie crumbles, lemon cream, pear and with apple/pear and raisins based. The dessert was served with a glass of 2015 Eric Bordelet Poire Authentique pear cider at the event. Each component compliments the other and until today as I am writing this to you, I still remember the taste of it, I am already planning to make a special visit to Bistro Rex.... just for the dessert!

  1. The space is spectacular and this venue is just what we needed for our event. It is the best place to have an event and we had an awesome experience here. Their staff at New York Event Venues is excellent; they are so attentive to all of your needs.
