Contrary to the other French companies in Toronto, Douce France imports everything directly from France. We get our viennoiseries, pastries, quiches preproofed, ready to be baked and frozen. Our artisans have been perpetuating their production methods for generations still using non-enriched flour so much healthier for those having issues with gluten especially.
The top quality butter we are lucky to have in France gives croissants, pains au chocolat, pains aux raisins, apple turnovers that unbeatable exquisite taste and makes the puff pastry so light and flaky! Almond and almond chocolate croissants are stuffed with frangipane according to tradition.
Kouign-Amann is a specialty of the town of Douarnenez in Finistère, Brittany, where it was invented by the baker Yves René SCORDIA in 1860. The name comes from the Breton language words for cake (kouign) and butter (amann). You love butter, you'll love it!
The Canelés de Bordeaux were first prepared by nuns who collected the wheat fallen from the ships at the harbour in Bordeaux as well as rum and vanilla. They also got egg yolks from wineries. They distributed these delicacies to the poor and sold them to collect money for charities.
Financiers used to be called Visitandines after the nuns who made them in Nancy in XVII century. Two hundred years later, a Swiss baker located next to the Stock Echange in Paris made them one of his specialties by giving them the name Financiers and the shape of the gold bar.
The selection of 'Tartes Fines' made by our passionate pastry chefs in Brittany are definitely our best sellers. They won an award of excellence and innovation for their puff pastry that makes their tarts so special.
