10 Years in Review – Timeline

Bitton turned 11 today and we decided to take a walk down memory lane.

Seasonal Menus

7 October 2011

Having fresh produce at my finger tips in the backyard when I was growing up in France, was something I didn’t consider a luxury until now. We had eighty pear, three cherry, one fig, one hazelnut, one raspberry and two apple trees.

St Mary’s Mini Masterchef Competition

4 October 2011

The food education classes at the local St Mary’s Primary School, were wrapped up for term 3 with a mini masterchef competition between 9 teams of 3 students from years 4, 5 and 6.

Bent On Food Cooking Demonstration

1 September 2011

We’re on the road to Wingham to visit Donna Carrier, owner of the Bent On Food cooking school and Bent On Life home wares store that has a French provincial feel. It’s a great feeling to know that Bitton products are loved 328km away from our flagship store in Alexandria.

Saturday Night Opening

22 August 2011

Our first Saturday night open was a huge success thanks to all our regulars and many new customers who we’re sure to be seeing again soon. Making the decision to extend our trading hours has been in the plans for a long time due to overwhelming requests.

Memories Jammed Into Jars

Fans of Bitton give a knowing nod when I talk about my culinary memories from around the world that have been captured in little jars. Every encounter with food has organically moulded my approach to the Bitton branded product range.

A French Toast to 20 Years in Australia

3 June 2011

When I was a little boy, I used to follow my mum into the kitchen and that’s where the magic happened. The sounds were like a live orchestra to my ears as the jam bubbled, releasing air pockets through the thick fruity surface.

taste, events and Functions Kick start March

17 March 2011

Taste Food and Wine Festival has continued to be a fantastic event for Bitton, where we gave out more crepes than ever before, sold out of our wonder jam the Strawberry and Vanilla, and had record sales on our Black Olive Tapenade, all in all a huge increase on last year.

We asked Mr Bitton to give us his top 5, either ones that have inspired him or that he feels are crucial to becoming a successful chef. Below are his recommendations from his own collection.
