A passion for old-fashioned baking
Gabi Pahan has always had a passion for baking.
After owning a Melbourne eatery for 13 years, she made the sea change to the Bellarine Peninsula and was inspired to launch My Bellarine Kitchen.
She started off at local markets and after COVID-19 hit, she pivoted to use her home based kitchen to bring dessert boxes to the community during lockdowns.
The business quickly gained a loyal following, thanks to her commitment to using fresh, local ingredients and her creative baking skills.
In 2022, to cater to rising demand, Ms Pahan moved to a dedicated kitchen with a small retail space in Ocean Grove.
She is passionate about supporting local businesses, and where possible she sources her ingredients from farmers and suppliers on the Bellarine Peninsula. She also donates a portion of her profits to local charities.
“I love baking because it’s a creative outlet for me,” she said.
“I love coming up with new recipes and seeing the look on people’s faces when they try my cakes. I also love the fact that I can share my love of baking with the community.”
“My husband ordered a Burnt Basque Cheesecake from Gabi for my birthday and it was honestly the most amazingly delicious cake I have ever eaten. Thank you so very much. You guys have some serious talent.”
“Wow! Best cakes ever! congrats to Gabi and her team.100th birthday celebration for my Mum.
