The GOODS from Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe
Vancouver, BC | Beaucoup Bakery & Café celebrates the arrival of summer with several new additions to its menu, including three new pastries and a refreshing beverage: Strawberry Mille-Feuille, Matcha Raspberry Tart, Butter Shoyu Roasted Corn Tarte, and a Rhubarb Iced Tea.
“We really wanted to highlight berries in our summer menu this year and strawberries and raspberries are certainly very vibrant, tart, and sweet for the season,” explains Betty Hung, co-owner and head pastry chef of Beaucoup Bakery. “These are full-flavoured yet delicate and light pastries that really hold up to the warmer weather. And, our corn tarte is not too heavy for lunch or a snack. And of course, we will be using local berries and corn for as long as we can.”
The pretty-in-pink Strawberry Mille-Feuille ($6.50 each) is composed of house-made puff pastry, strawberry diplomat cream, strawberry gelée, and fresh strawberries on top.
Customers who order the Matcha Raspberry Tart ($5.50 each) can expect to enjoy a striking pastry creation featuring a matcha pastry base, dacquoise, crème pâtissière, raspberry gelée, and piled high with fresh raspberries.
Beaucoup Bakery’s new savoury item is a Butter Shoyu Roasted Corn Tarte ($4.95 each), made of roasted corn, onions, shimeji mushrooms, and finished with a basil cherry tomato salad.
The Rhubarb Iced Tea ($3.95), with ginger rhubarb syrup, organic black Ceylon tea, rose petals, lavender, and cornflowers is refreshing for summer.
All Beaucoup Bakery items are made fresh daily and can also be pre-ordered for pick-up in large quantities. Summer items are seasonal and will be available until September 3, 2017. For more information, please visit www.beaucoupbakery.com.

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.”
