desserts galore in montreal
Hi, I'm a pastry chef and I'm wondering if anyone can recomend some good bakeries/pastry shops, chocolate shops, or killer desserts at restaurants.
Sorry to sound like a broken record, but you'll get ideas galore by searching the board. For example:
As for killer desserts, the consensus is that Brunoise's vanilla panna cotta with basil syrup and passion fruit pulp takes the, er, cake. I also had a couple of pretty amazing desserts at Au 5ième péché last week; look for my short write-up, soon to appear on a food board near you.
Good call. Patrice Demers makes some of the freshest and most innovative desserts in the city, whether at Le Chou or nextdoor parent Les Chèvres. www.leschevres.com
Also, as a pastry chef, AmandaRG should check out Demers's new dessert book. It's very affordable and there's reportedly an English edition (I've not seen it).
