Boutique Shop, Café & Bakery
Quince Bread & Baked Goods. Go to our weekly schedule of
baked goods. Our killer baguettes and Habanero Bread Sticks are always available, as is our Country Rye. We use these breads for our
crostinis, great to have on hand to have with cheese. And don't forget to look in our freezer for our U-Bake Croissants and Pain au Chocolat, great for lazy Sunday mornings at home.
Quince Cafe. Come in for lunch, or pop in for a cappuccino or a
cup of Quince Chai Spiced Tea.
Home Made Jellies. All fruit and vegetables for these jellies
are locally grown. In fact, most of the quince for this last batch of
Quince Jelly came from Chef Andrea's own quince tree at Fraser and
21st, not far from where she learned the recipe from her grandmother. Her rhubarb is coming up too, making it's way into the Rhubarb and Rosemary Jelly. True to her much loved grandmother's recipe, Chef Andrea makes her jelly using the organic quinces she grows in her own garden. Beautifully and naturally colored, and delicious on scones and croissants, or as part of a marinade, or as an accompaniment for roast pork, goose or turkey, our jellies makes a great gift.
And again this year is our artisnal Membrillo (Quince Paste),
hand made in the traditional Spanish style. This spectacular product
is made from the same pure, unsprayed local quince as our Quince
Jelly. Perfect with cheese, charcuterie and meats. As Chef Andrea
would say, "it's killer!"
