Looking for South African Bakery/Specialty Desserts
I looked through all the threads and could not find mention of a bakery in Montreal that would make South African specialties like Koeksisters, Soetkoekies, Hertzog, Krakelinge, etc.
I need to find these for a work function that is going to be South African-themed. Does anyone have an idea of where I could get things like this??
As a bonus, any pointers to a place that sells good Rooibos tea, preferably in large quantities would be appreciated!
Thanks so much!
Curiouser and curiouser!!!
Yikes! do we even have a south-african community in Montreal ?
I admit, I never ever looked it it.
Loose rooibos in bulk is very easy to find these days - Spice Station (2 locations), Camelia Sinensis and most other tea shops in town should have numerous varieties.
The South African baked goods will be much harder. I found this place by Googling - not sure exactly where they are in Quebec but it may be a place to start:
South African Connexion
Good luck and please report back if you find anything!
Wow, thanks guys! The tea seems to be resolved. I'm emailing the South African Connexion but their website doesn't have a dessert menu =( I might have to make something from scratch....which wouldn't be so bad except that it's time consuming and it's for work, not for me!
I will keep you posted if I find anything...
