The GOODS from Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe

Vancouver, BC | You likely know that Beaucoup Bakery was started after Jackie Kai Ellis spent time studying pastry arts in Paris, fell in love with the city, and wanted to find a way to bring a slice of it back to Vancouver to share with others. Jackie still heads back to Paris on a regular basis to seek inspiration, further her professional training, and to eat her way through the City of Light’s finest patisseries and chocolate shops (something she shared with Scout readers here). During these visits, she often finds herself thinking, “I really wish I could share these amazing pastries with my friends and customers.”

Thus, The Paris Tours was born. Quite simply, you’re invited to join Jackie for an afternoon of touring Paris’ legendary pastry houses and chocolateries. On a three hour walking tour, you’ll be guided by Jackie as she shows off what she considers the best that Paris has to offer, from traditional iterations of classics to cutting-edge versions, regional specialties, and modern takes on standards. She’ll tell you what each place is known for, what’s worth trying, and what they do best.

After the tour, you’ll have the chance to taste all of the pastries you’ve picked up along the way on the tour. Grab a fork and enjoy! The afternoon tour is CAD $165 per person, and groups are limited to six people. On each tour, you’ll visit up to 10 places, which will change depending on the group, but may include Pierre Hermé, Angelina, Lenôtre, Café Pouchkine, and Hugo et Victor.

Jackie will next be in Paris from May 15th through to the 25th and tours will be offered throughout her stay. Are you interested in learning more? Are you in Paris over different dates? Then visit The Paris Tours site and get in touch!

THE PEOPLE

ABOUT BEAUCOUP BAKERY

Beaucoup Bakery & Café opened its doors in December 2012, offering French-inspired pastries and childhood favourites with some smart, unique twists. The reason for opening Beaucoup Bakery was simple, to leave the world a happier place, even if through something as simple as a cookie. The company’s priority is to put care and pride into everything it does, from the ingredients used and the little details that go into the baking, through to the way the company treats valued customers and friends.

“At Beaucoup Bakery, we want to share amazing food, prepared with passion,” says owner and baker Jackie Ellis. “The biggest compliment we can receive is seeing someone’s eyes roll back and hear them say that it’s the best thing they’ve ever tasted! We strive to make people love food as much as we do!”

Beaucoup Bakery offers sweet pastries, cakes, seasonal tarts, cookies and viennoiserie, along with sandwiches made in-house—all of which can be enjoyed “to go” or in the charming 16-seat café. The café also includes a small retail area featuring hand-picked food and lifestyle items that match Beaucoup’s commitment to quality: coffee from Vancouver roaster 49th Parallel, Mellifera Bees honey, Lovely Home Idea linens, Black & Blum water bottles and Aquaovo thermoses.

HONOURS AND RECOGNITION

“The opening of Ellis’s South Granville bakery was delayed and then delayed again. And again. The resulting wait created a near-unmeetable expectation upon opening. Which, with the help of her perfect croissants and other transformative pastries, Ellis has been able to exceed.”
Western Living, March 2013 – 40 Foodies Under 40

WE Vancouver, February 27, 2013

“Graphic designer turned boulanger Jackie Ellis opened her South Granville bakery just before Christmas, and made us wonder how we ever did without her decadent treats.”
Vancouver Magazine, Jan/Feb 2013
