Easter bread or paska in TO?

prima Mar 29, 2013 10:39 AM

Anyone have any recs for good Easter breads (paska, etc) available tomorrow?

I realize Orthodox Easter is in May, so the Greek, Russian and Ukrainian Easter breads aren't going to be for sale this weekend.

Happy with any type of Easter bread- central European, Italian, Portuguese, etc. I saw the Portuguese Easter bread at Venezia last year. Has anyone tried it?

With Granowska's closed, I don't know where to get Central Euro Paska.

Is Prague open yet? It was supposed to re-open in Feb. The old website is no longer functional. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/882149

Thanks for any suggestions.

      Chicago on Roncy has large and miniature chalkas [Polish for challah--egg bread], and I'll assume Benna's bakery farther south does, too.

        Natalie's Kitchen in Etobicoke will have both paska and babka available tomorrow in limited quantities. Just saw this on their Facebook page.

          Thanks, everyone! Turns out Serano on Pape has baked up some tsourekia even though Greek Easter is 5 weeks away.
