Tarte aux Sucre?

Trying to help out a Quebecois friend who's assembling their Dec. 24 reveillon dinner. I'll score the Tourtiere from The Pie Shoppe but no dice on the Tarte aux Sucre (Sugar pie). Any suggestions on a decent version hearabouts?

    I thought I saw one at the Saturday winter Farmer's Market at Nat Bailey. Can't recall the name of the vendor

        The Foundation on Main St. has sugar pies on their menu, by the slice. Dunno how much, but our Quebecois friend who's been there mentioned they have it. 'Tho you may not be able to buy a whole pie from them.

          Thanks but I found a nice one at Nat Bailey. Appreciate the tip for Nat Bailey market where I found Artisan Chef Services aka http://www.chefenrick.com/
          Very nice selection of Quebecois food items like Tourtiere, Cretons etc.
          Was tempted to get a Tourtiere but I'll stick with my Pie Shoppe version made by the French sisters.

            If they're the ones who also sold mini-versions, that's the one I went to. They're good but only had the small ones when I went a few weeks ago. Nice to know they can do a whole pie.

              Yes, the same ones. Need to work on their name though as Artisan Chef Services really doesn't indicate what they are about.
              The full size pie was $16 so my friend will give the thumbs up or not on the quality. Pretty though.
