We listened to a lot of Beyonce in the kitchen in 2016. So much it was inevitable that her lyrics would alter the composition of one of our most popular marmalades. After hearing "And Daddy liked his whisky with his tea" over and over, the idea struck my assistant to swap the coffee for black tea leaves in our Bombe Matin, and so Daddy Lessons Marmalade was born. It's a little mellower but more nuanced, and altogether as powerful.
Camilla Wynne, Preservation Society founder, has been a pastry professional for a decade. After graduating from pastry school she cut her teeth in some of Montreal's best restaurants, including Les Chevres, Anise, and Laloux, all the while running the pastry half of Backroom Records & Pastries, and touring and recording with rock band Sunset Rubdown. When the band broke up she decided to concentrate on producing her own line of preserves, which had already garnered a following.
Not content to produce garden-variety jams and pickles, Camilla instead favours products that tell a story or illicit a memory and are often, though not intentionally, inspired by cocktails.
Seville oranges, sugar, lemon juice, whisky, black tea.
