Maman Gift Box
For many of us, the warmest memories are of family meals and often long treasured family recipes. Our cooking experiences are often from learning at the elbow of our own "mamans" or other mother figures in our lives, and later working alongside these same women and sometimes inspiring and challenging them with new takes on old favourites. These are the things that inspired us to create this limited edition gift box. Here's what you'll find inside:
Maman: The Cookbook // by Elisa Marshall and Benjamin Sormonte. A collection of 100 recipes spanning bestselling dishes from the Maman cafés in New York City, Montreal, and Toronto. These delicious creations come from combining two families - Elisa from Canada, and Benjamin from Southern France with roots in Algeria. The flavours are exceptional and the book is simply a pleasure for slow browsing with a hot cuppa.
Rouge Provence Rooibos Tea // Sloane Fine Tea Merchants. Even at the homey Maman cafés in New York you'll find the tea is from Toronto-based Sloane. This South African red rooibos is blended with french florals and berries for a refreshingly refined and honeyed finish. In the signature Sloane canister - makes 50 servings.
Las Rosas // Balzac's Coffee Roasters. Balzac's partnered with RGC Coffee to present Las Rosas. This cooperative of over 400 Colombian women prioritizes gender equality and allows these women to take on leadership positions on coffee farms. Grown, picked and processed by the women of Las Rosas, this coffee is dynamic and flavourful with notes of dark chocolate, brown sugar and pomegranate.
Milk Toffee Shortbread // Christy's Gourmet. Sweet things happened when an artist baker, Christy, and a passionate chocolatier, Bernhard, fell in love, and these cookies are perfect for dunking and nibbling while you browse your new favourite cookbook.
Brioche Candle // Les Citadines. This is the absolute perfect candle, with scents of freshly baked brioche, to create a French café moment in your own home. Housed in whimsical holographic vessel, the flame flickering in the jar complements the glass as the dreamy patterns shift and change colour as the candle burns.
