I had the opportunity to be invited to Maison Christian Faure, a new pastry boutique and school located in Old Montreal.  CF BenedictI was lucky enough to be able to watch the master, Chef Faure, demonstrate a wonderful Hot Chocolate Soufflé.

I also tried a few items from their ‘Snacking Chic’ menu including the above brioche pain perdu with a wonderful caramel sauce that had some guests sipping it straight up.

The pastries were fantastic, and everything is made in house.  The bakery counter offers a window as to the type of pastries and viennoiseries that you can learn about in the pastry school.  The pastry school is for professionals or serious amateurs, but there’s also a Pastry Passion Night which is a type of speed dating/networking night.CF Kitchen 1 CF Lov Blue Tea CF Menu CF Mural

The school is located in an historic building on Place Royale – the earliest settlement in Montreal.CF Teas CF Treats CF Wedding Cake CF WindowThis place would be great for those seriously wanting to learn about making pastry.  But it’s also a fantastic bet for locals in the area, or tourists wanting to try some authentic French pastries.  It’s beautiful and delicious!

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
