The Chefs

A 24h Service!
One night chef, One day chef!
While Melbourne sleeps, Nans and his team are working hard to provide bread and pastries for his customers.
Once it is time for them to go, Stephane and his takes over to prepare daily specials on customers' request

Choukette’s desserts and treats are created by Nans Wojtczak. It was in his home town of Poitiers in western France that Nans first developed an appreciation for the finest French cuisine.

Nans followed the most engaging way to become a pastry chef he is “compagnon du devoir”. During 7 years he did his “tour de France” to learn the french patisserie “savoir faire” (Bordeaux, Cologne, Craon, Toulouse, Colmar and Nantes).

Nans is a pastry chef with a special interest for the dough (Croissant, puff, shortcrust, shortbread…) and he loves to share his knowledge with people keen to learn.

To his side, Stephan Pettier, very talented and experimented French chef is pairing his skill to provide an alternative offer to his business partner during opening hours. Former owner and well-known chef of the famous “Aux batifolles” restaurant in Melbourne, Stephan has been on Nans sides for over 10 years, and is now fully committed to bring his talent in order to create daily specials at Choukette. Now, dishes and soups of the day are available on request and have already brought many more amateurs of his French cuisine.

It is the combination of Stephan and Nans’ French background, extensive training and love of the finest cooking that has resulted in the creation of the variety of delicious products available at Choukette.

Stephan and Nans’ dedication to quality and innovation is unquestionable. Working as a chef is particularly demanding. A meticulous approach is required in order to ensure that all products are of the highest quality. The results are particularly gratifying for the chefs who like to express their creativity in the kitchen.
