There are occasions for baking all throughout the year, but probably no busier baking season than the Holidays. There are so many different holiday favorites from all over the world, for example, Stollen in Germanic countries, Panettone in Italy, Saffron woven dessert breads from Scandinavia, Bûche de Noël in France, Pecan Pie from the United States. And, don’t forget about all of the cookies that many of us spend hours baking for our families, friends and families.
While The Frenchman’s Corner specializes in Belgian and high end American chocolates, we also have some fantastic gift ideas and holiday baking supplies. We have a very good baking chocolate from Barry Callebaut that is perfect for all kinds of recipes. It would make an especially good ganache. We also have two fantastic cocoas that are great for baking and making delicious hot chocolate; one from Neuhaus and the other from Lake Champlain.
We also have some lovely baking related gift ideas for the Holidays. We have a selection of gorgeous ceramic bowls from Portugal. They are a great size for cake batter, cookie and bread doughs. These colorful bowls are also wonderfully light. In addition, we a collection of spatulas in various colors and several different dish towels to help you clean up. This year, we also have three different designs for cookie molds: a Christmas tree, Santa Claus and a Snowman. Finally, we have jars of decorative Christmas sugar and crushed peppermint candy to decorate those cookies and cakes.
We invite everyone to come in to check out all of these items and others for all of those special people on your holiday shopping lists or for yourself to enjoy. We hope to see you soon!
