The GOODS from Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe
Vancouver, BC | Savour the most colourful season of the year at Beaucoup Bakery & Café (2150 Fir Street) with a fresh selection of autumn-inspired classic French pastries, shared in anticipation of co-owner and head pastry chef Betty Hung’s French Baking 101 cookbook release. New treats include the Paris-Brest, Pumpkin Gâteau Basque, Ratatouille Savoury Tarte, Caramel Apple Pie Pull-apart Bun, Smoked Salmon and Egg Sandwich, and Maple Pumpkin Pecan Bostock.
“Fall is all about comfort and familiarity, which is why we are bringing in French classics this year but with seasonal touches, such as pumpkin, apple, and hazelnuts,” explains Betty, who co-owns Beaucoup Bakery & Café with her brother Jacky Hung. “It is also definitely a great way to celebrate the upcoming launch of my first cookbook, French Baking 101, which comes out in November. We have a homecook Paris-Brest recipe in there and many others. Jacky and I can’t wait for everyone to enjoy some new Beaucoup treats.”
Inspired by the classic French pastry, Beaucoup’s fall take on the Paris-Brest ($6.25) frames a decadent layer of hazelnut praliné, mousseline, and crunchy caramelized hazelnuts with two airy choux rings.
The Pumpkin Gâteau Basque ($5.25) incorporates a creamy and lightly-spiced pumpkin cream into a decadent vanilla almond pastry.
French Provençal style roasted vegetables are showcased in the Ratatouille Savoury Tarte ($4.95) along with piperade, shaved chèvre noir and rose vegetal cheeses, and aged balsamic vinegar.
Evoking a sense of play, the Caramel Apple Pie Pull-apart Bun ($4.95) brings together the comforting flavours of roasted spiced apples, layered pastry, almond frangpiane, streusel, and caramel.
To satisfy larger cravings, Beaucoup’s twist on the niçoise sandwich, the Smoked Salmon and Egg Sandwich ($10.50), is a composition of smoked salmon, egg, fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, onions, in between slices of pumpkin brioche with olive and caper mayonnaise.
Maple Pumpkin Pecan Bostock ($4.75) is Beaucoup’s house-made pumpkin brioche infused with maple syrup and topped with pecan frangipane.
The Almond Praliné and Tonka Chocolate Croissant ($5.50) packs together a decadent combination of caramel syrup, almond frangipane, almond praline butter, and topped with crunchy tonka almond cocoa granola.
