Trentham Tucker started as a small country kitchen in Trentham, Victoria, but as their popularity grew, they moved to Richmond, Melbourne to cope with the demand.
That’s not to say Trentham Tucker has abandoned any of the old-fashioned attention to detail that made them such a hit – these days, they still make everything by hand, using the finest quality ingredients and classic recipes.Once you’ve tried Trentham Tucker’s delicious Panforte cake, there’s no going back. They’re perfect for afternoon tea breaks, evening snacks…pretty much any time is perfect for Panforte.
Taste Trentham Tucker’s range for yourself. If you’re at our Kensington store on Sunday December 20, wander up to our Gourmet Food department and find out why we think Trentham Tucker Panforte makes the ideal Christmas snack.
We’ve added all three tastings to our Upcoming Events page, so you can add them to your Google or Apple calendar – because we know how hectic things can get in December. Click here to take a look.
