    Hilton Head Social Bakery: Lowcountry Hospitality with French Flair

    HHSB-2.jpg

    Croissants, baguettes, and pastries, oh my! Life on Hilton Head Island just got a little bit sweeter with the new Hilton Head Social Bakery. The beautiful café and bakery located at Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina is a passion project for New York chef Phillipe Feret and his partner Marissa Burnpur. Feret has worked in some of the finest restaurants in New York and had his own restaurant, Brasserie Julien, for 15 years. The talented pastry chef is bringing his Parisian roots and culinary expertise to Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina, and we for one cannot wait to taste his delectable desserts.

    HHSB-1.jpg

    Eclairs, croissants, tarts, turnovers, European-style bread and brioche, chocolates, cakes, is your mouth watering yet? We wanted to learn more about the Hilton Head Social Bakery so we went straight to the source. Check out our interview with Executive Chef Phillipe Feret and don’t forget to check out the Hilton Head Social Bakery next time you visit Palmetto Dunes.

    You’ve been open about a month now. How’s it going so far?

    It’s great! Our initial concern was the customer response to introducing something new and different here, but they love it! This gives us fuel to do even better.

    Your father owned a bakery in France. How does it feel to be following in his footsteps?

    It’s a nice feeling and I’m sure he’s proud of me. I think about him all of the time now that I am baking again, especially when I am using his original baking tools that he gave me just before we opened. He used [them] in our bakery when I was young.

    What bakery item do you enjoy making the most?

    Croissants, because croissants are temperamental and are an interesting challenge. To make a great croissant everything has to [be perfect], the temperature, the environment, the timing, etc. Most of the time they are in a good mood!

    The café is so beautiful! We love all of the reclaimed wood and special touches. What inspired you to create such a beautiful space?

    The bakery is significant because the inside has a story to it. From the floor to the wood cabinetry, to the artifacts. My fiancée and I always wanted to have a barn house with reclaimed wood, so, for now, we combined our talents to build this in a contemporary design. She is my biggest inspiration.

    Do you have a favorite dessert? Which pastry would you recommend?

    All of the desserts I make are my favorite. But most of all, the apple tart and crème brulée. I would never make anything I didn’t like.

    What do you love most about Hilton Head Island?

    The community is very supportive and friendly [and] it’s very peaceful here. The island life is great.

    Thanks to Philippe for answering our questions! If you’d like to learn more about the Hilton Head Social Bakery, check out their Facebook Page. Or visit their new website at www.hiltonheadsocialbakery.com! Bon appétit!

Enjoy precious alone time riding a bicycle built for two along miles of paved bike paths across the island, or by taking a kayak or canoe ride down our peaceful inland lagoon system.

Whatever your activity, enjoying time together can’t help but ignite the flame between you.

    Find time for rest, relaxation and romance

    Tantalize your taste buds
