coloured bread

  • k

Does anyone know where I would be able to find coloured bread, to use in tea sandwiches, in Toronto?

I am assured by family that it still exists, but I can't recall ever having seen it.

Thanks for any help!

  1. I recall my aunts and my grandmother having coloured bread at wedding and baby showers. I would imagine your best bet would be in a small private bakery. If you ask at the counter, I am sure they would put in a special order for you. Smaller places seem to be more likely to cater to special orders opposed to loblaws or costco.

    1. I remember seeing this at Dominion's when I was really young!

      I would call supermarkets in neighbourhoods where these sandwiches might be more popular. Maybe Leaside, Rosedale...

      Also, check out the smaller bakeries, as the previous poster suggested. Just grab a yellow pages and call the places that look they might be a good candidate - avoid Chinese and Italian bakeries and the like.

      Good luck!
