NZ Herald - Five of the best French cafes
"Recommended to us recently by New Zealand-born, French-based chef, Nick Honeyman, Vaniye is his go-to for croissants. Honeyman tells us the traditional, and probably most popular, pastry is hard to get right, but pastry chef Sonia is on the money."

Vaniyé Masterclass: Verrine Tatin
"If you’ve been to Vaniyé then you know it is a study in perfection – each dessert is a masterpiece. The very thought of trying to recreate one of her recipes seemed preprosterous to me before the class. Now I feel slightly more confident."

Concreate Playground

In a dreamy realm of its own when it comes to fancy cake shops
"Visitors to this chic and understated establishment off the beaten path of the Parnell shops might well think they’ve walked straight into a high-end pâtisserie on the left bank of Paris. Shrouded in the hush of a luxury goods store but without the pretension, Pâtisserie Vaniyé is in a dreamy realm of its own when it comes to fancy cake shops."

Rachel Carley

Vaniyé Patisserie and Rachel Carley Ceramics

Hadlow Girls
