How it all started
Growing up in Indonesia, we have been enjoying Tempeh as long as we can remember. It's one of Indonesian staple food so we took it for granted most of the time.
These delicious little brick of soy is so unassuming and underrated that people in Indonesia actually associate tempeh with being weak and soft!
As we grew older though we realise the magic and the many nutritions that tempeh actually comes with. It is so rich in protein that you can actually substitute your meat with this gem.
When we moved to Melbourne in the noughties, we stumbled upon each other and we all really missed our tempeh from back home so our founding member Audi (Our Mr. Tempeh) decided to learn tempeh fermentation. He finally cracked the way to ferment the perfect authentic tempeh with a process that is similar to traditional tempeh making.
He created his own start up called Take and Eat Tempeh in late 2014 and have been going around farmers market and supply some retailers and cafes around Melbourne to introduce this little beauty to Australian audience.
And everyone can't get enough of the tempeh!
Why cafe & Pastries?
We think the best way to educate tempeh is through serving the tempeh itself. By creating dishes that anyone can enjoy. Tempeh is versatile.
So why pastries?
It's all started when COVID-19 started back in March 2020. Our cafe only open 10 days before lockdown. We have to pivot and create bakery/pastries products to survive.
