Tea Mamut: The Master of the Sweet Craft

15.8.2021.

Pastry chef Tea Mamut is the owner of a famous pastry shop O’š kolač in Split, where you can enjoy her delicacies. This talented lady is the first Croatian woman to complete a prestigious course at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, where she graduated in Baking and Pastry Art Management program.

From wanting to become a tennis player to finishing a dental technician high school to years of doing ballet, eventually, Tea dedicated herself to, yet, another passion—making pastries. 

She gained experience all over the world, starting in Vienna in the most famous coffeehouse and pastry shop with a 300-year-old history—Demel, to working in New York in a 3-Michelin-star restaurant. She spent a part of her career in London and at the Michelin-starred LaVie restaurant in Germany. This young woman from Split also gained an enviable experience working for large Croatian companies, and in 2016 she decided to start her own business, that is, to open a pastry shop to her own liking. The patisserie is decorated in vintage style, dominated by pastel shades of pink and green that evoke a warm home and a cozy atmosphere. O’š kolač shop consists of an inner space where there is a display case with cakes and sitting tables that can accommodate up to ten people, the space in the back that serves for production, and there are two comfortable benches outside for sitting and eating pastries—the best part, isn’t it?!

The offer consists of homemade cakes and pastries that are an ideal combination of well-known flavors of the Dalmatian climate and a few new ingredients. The whole concept of the patisserie—from its name to the names of the cakes and cookies—is inspired by the local Split flavor. At the first bite, you will know for sure that these are quality and noteworthy cakes. Tea is proud of her small team that works hard to make her dream a reality. They are guided by quality, not quantity, so you will not see mass production at their shop. Every bite is a special pleasure!

As usual, we interpreted this classic dish in our own way and gave the delicate Italian dish an irresistible dose of Split spite. Taste the perfectly juicy and creamy risotto from Laganini’s menu, we’re sure you’ll be asking for seconds!
