Kristijan Kodric is originally from Croatia, where he was a member of the Croatian Olympic culinary team and won many national and international pastry competitions. The celebrated pastry chef  moved to Ireland nine years ago, where he saw a gap in the market for “high quality” desserts and dessert-related products. Croatia’s loss was Cavan’s gain and Vanilla Bean Patisserie has been in operation now for over 2 years.

Vanilla Bean Patisserie is proud to make mouth-watering treats for hospitality businesses around Ireland as well as for the public. They supply several hotels, restaurants, and pubs nationally with desserts and pastry-related products like their selection of curds or ready-to-go crumble toppings. Their freshly baked goods are made with the freshest local ingredients, Created in Cavan,  and served with love.

A fantastic achievement for Kristijan and his team was to have their curd available for sale in all Aldi Stores in Ireland as well as a featured presence in Lidl Ireland in 2022. Lemon curd, Lime curd and Passionfruit curd are on all shelves across the country for you to pick up and enjoy your own fruity taste of Cavan.

An important part of Vanilla Bean Patisserie is their online shop. With delivery every Saturday, you can enjoy tarts and pies, dessert boxes and bundles, cheesecakes, afternoon tea or small packs delivered right to your door. Perfect for special celebrations or to just treat yourself. Get your order in quick as the delivery slots regularly sell out!

Vanilla Bean Patisserie won silver at the 2021 Blás na hEireann awards and gold in the 2022 awards. There is lots more coming from this proud member of Created in Cavan and we can’t wait to see what happens next! Find out more about their mouth watering treats on our website here.
