Première Moisson interlude

There are many pâtisseries in Montreal, but although we’ve only tried a handful of them, we keep returning to Première Moisson. The food and ambiance are superb, to say the least, and one of the branches is about a block from our apartment.

Below are a few examples of the shops’ offerings. I feel that I should get money (or at least get free pastries) for advertising for them!

And here are our selections from our most recent Sunday pastry run.

Forêt-Noire

Forêt-Noire

This forêt-noire consists of chocolate sponge cake soaked in kirsch syrup, Chantilly cream, and cherries. Topped with lots o’ chocolate. (As roughly translated from Première Moisson website.)

Cygne

Cygne

This was labeled simply “cygne” (swan). It seemed pretty much the same as the cream puffs made by my friend’s mom, who is from Germany, for a birthday party in grade 5 (yes, I remember them, Melissa!). Very tasty. Unfortunately, I broke off the swan’s head when I was taking it out of the box; oops!

Choco-framboises

Choco-framboises

Chocolate mousse cake on a chocolate cookie crust with whole raspberries and raspberry jam. Sooooo rich.
