Where to get 40%whipping cream/manufacturing cream in montreal?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows where to get the 40% whipping cream/ manufacturing cream.mi heard that this cream is better to use for cake decoration. I also heard about whipping cream stabilizer... Is there a place that we can find all those. Thank you

  1. The whipping cream stabilizer that I use is Dr. Oetker's Whip It, and is available in most grocery stores, usually somewhere within the baking section.

    It comes in little two packs, similar to the three packs of Fleischmann (except in two's), or in a box with multiple single packs.

    As far as cream goes, sorry, I can't help.

    1. I've seen 40% cream (assume it can be whipped at that fat level) at Jean-Talon Market at some of the "gourmet" cheese and dairy and natural foods shops. Don't remember which ones, but I can look next time I'm there.

      1. re: lagatta

        Le marché des saveurs have it.

      2. I once found 40% "artisanal" cream at Marché PA between Guy and Atwater metro.

        I think I found some at the fromagerie atwater but it was so expensive you'd think they flown it from Mars.

        1. Call up Fromagerie Atwater, they might have some.

          1. The health food stores have 40% cream, depending on the brand you choose. Anna Olsen recommends using dry milk powder to stabilize a cream mixture.
