As if we needed more of a reason to visit some of the best bakeries and patisseries in Toronto, French jam royalty, Bonne Maman, has partnered with some of our favourite local shops for the first annual Jam In The City event that’s on now until October 21st, 2017.
Made from the same time-honoured traditional French recipes used since the very beginning of the brand, Bonne Maman has provided select makers and bakers one of four featured jams (in flavours like apricot, raspberry, blueberry and strawberry) to each make a special limited-edition treat that can be purchased at each participating location. PLUS you’ll even get a lil gift with purchase!*
See below for the full list of participating Toronto bakeries and what you kind of Bonne Maman creation you can expect to find at each spot:
Nadège Patisserie is known as THE spot for authentic French macarons. Using Bonne Maman’s scrumptious Raspberry Jam, Nadège is serving up Salted Caramel & Raspberry Macarons that will no doubt blow ya minds.
The iconic Toronto institution Dufflet Pastries has been the city’s source for creative desserts for the past 35 years. To celebrate #JamInTheCity, Dufflet is introducing a Blueberry Jam-filled Cupcake made with Bonne Maman’s robust Blueberry Jam that’s available at the Beaches location only.
Culinary classroom and bake shop, Le Dolci is known for creating the best #goals worthy treats so we know that their Vanilla Cupcake topped with Strawberry Buttercream using Bonne Maman will be LIT.
A cheese-lovers version of heaven, Cheese Boutique has been supplying Toronto with succulent selections for over 47 years. This foodie dreamland is definitely savoury focused but don’t let this dessert pass you by – their Apricot Coffee Cake made with Bonne Maman’s Apricot Jam is just what you need after a mouthful of proscuitto + Parmigiano!
Bringing a little bit of Paris to the 6ix, Maman serves family-inspired recipes from the South of France that are not only delicious, but super chic too. Their new creation for #JamInTheCity is a decadent Chocolate Fondant with Bonne Maman’s Raspberry Jam, and we cannot wait to dig in.
THE TEMPERED ROOM
In the heart of Parkdale you’ll find The Tempered Room and you’ll never look back once you’ve experienced one of their pastries. Their Chocolate Almond Croissant with Blueberry Jam & Smoked Crumble looks almost too good to eat, but it’s not like that’s ever stopped us!
THE ROLLING PIN
Known as dessert specialists, the team behind The Rolling Pin is constantly working to improve their craft by, yup, you guessed it, eating desserts! As one of Toronto’s top donut shops and bakeries, this sweet spot is introducing their Strawberry & Cream Donut made with none other than Bonne Maman’s Strawberry Jam.
STUBBE CHOCOLATES & PASTRY
This sixth-generation chocolatier, Stubbe Chocolates & Pastry started out in Germany in 1845, and, after a relocation to Canada, has become a leader in the industry. In celebration of #JamInTheCity, Stubbe has created their Bon Apricot Chocolates made with delicious Bonne Maman Apricot Jam.
