We're proud to be your local AND global pantry - with products from around the world and some of the best products in Toronto and Ontario. We've talked before about El Tounsi Harissa, Mado's Pepper Sauce, Laura Slack Chocolate, Soup Girl, Meredith's Ginger and many more local favourites. But today we want to expand the circle just a little bit in celebration of the birthday of our favourite neighbour just down the 401.
Montréal is an awesome vacation just a few hours away - a great Canadian city with a whole different spirit, a whole different flavour and a whole bunch of different flavours! This year the city turns 375 years old and we wanted to join the party by putting together a few of the great products from Montréal featured in the store:
The tea-towels in the back reflect two of the most famous tastes of Montréal, the eponymous bagels and the world-beating smoked meat. Now, whether you prefer the Fairmount Bagel or the St. Viateur Bagel, and the Schwartz's brisket or Smoked Meat Pete's, these tea-towels don't name specifics - they don't even need to say the word "Montréal" because those two images practically scream the city loud and clear;
Chuck Hughes, the Montréal chef famous for his restaurants - Garde Manger and Le Bremner - AND for his TV shows and cookbooks also has his own top quality product line including olive oils, vinegars, antipasti and more;
They've recently opened a second location on Rue St. Catherine but we recommend on your next trip to Montréal you visit the original Plateau location of Bar Le Lab on Rachel Est, where a cocktail is not just a drink, it's a spectacle. It is the Cirque du Soleil of mixology. You can bring some of that style home with their Tropical BBQ infused syrup to add a little sophistication and flair to your home bar.
And finally, as the name suggests, 1642 cola and ginger ale are small batch soft drinks crafted in honour of the city's founding and can help you get in the spirit with or without spirits!
