Byron Bay Cookie Company brings out gourmet passionfruit cookie

Byron Bay Cookie Company Celebrates 25 Years

TO CELEBRATE its 25th birthday, iconic Australian brand Byron Bay Cookie Company is collaborating with one of the country’s most celebrated chefs, Christine Manfield, to create a limited edition cookie, and is thrilled this will mark the beginning of a larger brand ambassadorship.

Passionfruit and dark chocolate cookie

The milestone birthday will be officially celebrated in December, when the Passionfruit & Dark Chocolate Cookie will be launched exclusively in David Jones, and available in Australia’s premium department store for a limited time.

"This is a truly authentic partnership given my love of sweet things," says Manfield. "Byron Bay Cookie Company is a quintessential Australian brand which I feel proud to be associated with."

"Passionfruit is a signature ingredient of mine so thought it fitting to use it for this special limited edition cookie."

Leading culinary ambassador

As one of Australia’s leading culinary ambassadors, Christine’s professional culinary life as restaurateur has culminated in three ground-breaking, acclaimed restaurants: Paramount in Sydney from 1993 to 2000, East@West in London from 2003 to 2005 and Universal from 2007 to 2013. Her myriad award winning books include Dessert Divas and Paramount Desserts.

The Passionfruit & Dark Chocolate Cookie combines a rich shortbread biscuit base with real passionfruit puree and pieces of decadent dark chocolate.

"We wanted to celebrate being 25 years young with an exciting, relevant and delicious partnership," says Emilie Emond, Marketing Manager, Byron Bay Cookie Company.

"Christine is known as one of Australia’s dessert queens so she was a natural fit for our brand, and we look forward to creating more unique flavours with Christine over the coming months."
