Where to purchase Creme Anglaise in Toronto

Hi folks,

I have searched many a grocery store to purchase Creme Anglaise but so far have been told it is only sold in Quebec. Given the name I am convinced I can find it somewhere here in Toronto.
Have any of you seen it on any shelves?

Thank you!

    1. Admittedly I've not seen it... Creme fraiche, yes... Creme Anglaise, no... you might want to try Pusateri's, Whole Foods, or McEwan's, however. You'd probably find it one of those 'higher end' grocer's.

    2. I've bought Creme Anglaise in Loblaws ( in whipping cream area) called Devon Cream it's delicious Miranda

        Creme anglais isn't devonshire or clotted cream if that's what you mean. It's a thin custard. There's an off-chance Loblaws might carry something close. It's not all that tough to make.

      2. I've heard tell that melted good-quality vanilla ice cream will do in a pinch. Ice cream is just a frozen thin custard after all. Might be a little sweet.

        1. Today I found creme anglais (made in England), and two different brands of creme fraiche (one 35% mf and the other 40%) from PQ, all next to each other at Highland Farms (Dufferin s.of Steeles).
