A new world of beautiful and authentic Russian treats is now available at Broadway Shopping Centre.
The only Russian patisserie in Sydney, IZBA Russian Treats specialises in authentic Russian cakes and pastries.
Rogacheva opened the cafe in June, working with French chef Philippe Koch to translate her family recipes to a commercial environment.
“Most of the recipes are my family’s recipes,” she says. Favourites include the signature honey cake with sour cream, and the store’s namesake Izba which incorporates sour cherries.
Rogacheva, 30, moved to Australia five years ago to study a masters in business at the University of Technology and decided to stay to share her love of Russian culture with Australians. Olga chose Broadway as the location for the second store because it is close to Central train station.
The opening of the patisserie means that a whole new dimension has been added to the shopping centre, with Broadway becoming renowned for its international assemblage.
