Julie Trottier’s La Gourmande Confections offers sweet candy treats such as creamy caramels and soft chocolate marshmallows.
We discovered La Gourmande Confections at Baker’s Market Vancouver and enjoyed Julie’s sweet n’ salty caramels: Fleur De Sel Caramels ($3.00 per pack of three) – When caramel is done right, there’s really nothing better, especially when combined with artisan fleur de sel. [Fleur de sel, or “flower of salt” in French, is a hand-harvested moist sea salt, traditionally collected off the coast of Brittany.] These are perfectly soft and chewy caramels with just enough saltiness to bring out the complex flavors of butter, cream and sugar. Her Cocoa Mashmallows ($2.00 per pack of two), are delightfully pillowy-soft marshmallows, flavoured with rich dark chocolate.
