Au Pain Dore and pâté

maxanon Aug 15, 2011 09:21 PM

I normally like to buy some pâté savoureux from Au Pain Dore for impromptu picnics and such and was surprised to discover that they do not sell any pâté anymore. Although its still listed on their site. http://www.aupaindore.com/fr/produits...

Is there anyplace that I can get this type of pâté.

thanks in advance.

    Pretty much anywhere. Groceries will have them either wrapped or behind a counter. Cheeseshops always have them. Large bakeries like Gascogne or Premiere Moisson have some.

    Are you a local, if so where do you live? It would be easier to tell you where to find it rather then giving recommendations all over the city.

      I agree - every major supermarket stocks pate.

        Thank-you for the responses. I've had a hard time finding this specific type of pâté. From the website: "pâté de foie de volaille au porto et poivre noir".

          Have you checked a few different Pain Dorés or contacted head office to find out if certain outlets may still carry it? I seem to recall seeing pâté at the Pain Doré on Monkland but I haven't checked recently.

            Or perhaps ask that Pain Doree location who made the paté. I doubt they made it themselves, likely the ordered it from a producer.

              From what I understand, the franchise does not make nor sell these types of products anymore. I went to the Monkland and the Atwater market stores (places I used to buy it from). I was hoping for a place that would stock it regularly and that was widely available.

              I'll keep looking, thanks for the suggestions.

            I don't have a clue and doubt anyone else will either- that's a very specific request. La Vielle Europe has lots of cheeses and meats and pates.

              Marché des Saveurs, maybe?

          The location in Marche Atwater still does and any number of vendors in the market.

            Really! I was just there a couple of weeks ago and there wasn't any charcuterie in the displays.

              I must apologize...I mixed it up with Premiere Moisson.

            When it comes to pâté, I personally try different kinds all the time. In most artisan bakeries, small grocers and butcher shops, you can find pretty good stuff, though there'll be disappointment too. But I've learned not to get attached too much to particular products in Montreal because they tend to disappear pretty easily.

            Oh how I miss the olive and cheese bread from Le Moulin on Mont-Royal (the cashiers were really cute back then...), which later became Le Petit Fromentier de Fabien with a sadder selection of breads (and hippie dude cashier just wasn't as easy on the eyes), then some other bakery a couple more times. I think the place is now a pastry shop. In fact, Pain Doré on Mont-Royal closed too.

              I hear you, my disappointment abounds with this transience. I've tried a lot from a lot of places and I;ll have to chalk this one to the "..its better to have tasted and lost than to never have tasted..." column.
