Puff Pastry

  • 7

Does anyone know where to buy decent ready made puff pastry in Toronto? I'm looking for stuff made with butter NOT that revolting hydrogenated oil....Any ideas?

  1. Loblaw's sells puff pastry made with butter. I have not tried it! I don't know of any other retail source in Toronto.

      I've tried the Loblaw's puff pastry from the Queen's Quay Market and it was actually pretty good.

    2. I believe there is a store at the lower level of St. Lawrence market that sells frozen puff pastry...(it's the small place with lots of frozen items) I do not recall if it is made with butter... but worth checking out while you're there...

      1. I posted this last year, looking for the really good stuff.
        Thanks to chowhounds I got the most amazing puff pastry at Rahier. All butter, delicious.

          Thanks that's exactly the sort of stuff I'm looking for - all butter! Do Rahier carry it all the time, do you know?

            Here is my findings that I posted last year:

            To follow up: the place at the market had the pastry for $3.99 for a 1/2 pound package, Rahier had 500 gram packages for $5.00, both were frozen.

            The Rahier puff pastry was made with butter and the market with shortening. I went with the Rahier and hope the mushroom tarts turn out tomorrow.

            So, that was last year and the prices may have changed. I remember calling Rahier and they told me if I came on a specific day I could get it fresh but otherwise they would hold the frozen packages for me. I got the frozen and it was excellent. BTW - Recipe for Rob Feenie's mushroom tarts with Puff Pastry is excellent.

              Thanks so much for this Mila - both the recos. for the pastry - I'll give Rahier a call - and the Rob Feenie recipe.
