Uruguayan Alfajores

Hola!

THE ALFA-WHAT??

Charrua is a Sydney-based Australian company founded by brother and sister duo Arthur and Maria in 2015. Charrua produce quality handmade alfajores, a rich yet delicate dessert that has been a traditional favourite in Uruguay for well over a century. The name ‘Charrua’ harkens back to Arthur and Maria’s cultural roots, honouring Uruguay’s indigenous Charrua people who occupied the region for four thousand years.

Though it may be relatively new to Australia, the alfajor – pronounced “alfa-hor” – has a rich history and tradition. Of Arabic origin, it was introduced to South America in the mid-19th century. With velvety dulce de leche – a smooth, thick caramel – sandwiched between moist, crumbling biscuits, coconut and often coated in fine dark or white chocolate, it’s no surprise that this decadent delight quickly found a loving home in Uruguay.

THE TEAM

Arthur & Maria’s love of alfajores was born and refined in Uruguay where they were raised. Returning to Australia as a young adults with big dreams, Arthur chased his passion, becoming a qualified pastry chef. He was soon plying his trade across Sydney with his quality creations finding their way onto dinner tables and into coffee shops, delighting the few select Sydneysiders lucky enough to get their hands on his sinful, exotic pastries. Encouraged by early success and a small but very dedicated following, Maria and Arthur launched Charrua in June 2015.
