The GOODS from Les Amis Du Fromage
Vancouver, BC | The Salty Cookie Company and The Lemon Square join forces for a Pop Up Shop at les amis du FROMAGE in Strathcona on Saturday May 24. This pop-up will showcase the talents of these two fresh start-up pastry companies. It will run from noon to 5pm at the East Vancouver location of les amis du FROMAGE at 843 East Hastings Street in Strathcona. Take this opportunity to do some sweet shopping and show some support for these new start-up businesses!
The Salty Cookie Company is the dream child of pastry chef Meredith Kaufman. Having been a pastry chef since 1999 and a mom since 2004, cookies have always been a part of her life. What started off as a hobby of dropping off cookies to friends and loved ones, turned into a full time venture. Thus, The Salty Cookie Company was born.
The Lemon Square is a small slice of paradise. Handmade and all wrapped up just for you. Not your typical lemon square, this one is made with fresh lemons, BC butter and dusted with coconut. Once you try it, you’ll be hooked.

About Les Amis du Fromage
les amis du FROMAGE is Vancouver’s busiest and best cheese shop. Not only have the readers of The Georgia Straight and the Westender voted les amis Vancouver’s Best Cheese Shop, les amis du FROMAGE has also been a recipient of Vancouver Magazine’s restaurant award for Top Food Supplier to Vancouver’s finest restaurants.
The mother and daughter team of Alice & Allison Spurrell stock the larders of the city’s finest restaurants and your fridge alike. They fill their shelves with hundreds of cheeses including local, unpasteurized (Lait Cru) French, English, Italian, Spanish, Swiss and other specialties from around the world. The store regularly stocks between 400-500 cheeses for sale to both trade and consumers. Of those cheeses, at least 150 are from Canada, with a focus on British Columbia and Quebec.
In addition to cheese, we also import many other specialty foods including top quality blended and single varietal extra virgin olive oils, specialty vinegars, cheese accompaniments, crackers and biscuits, local and imported charcuterie and cheese equipment including girolles, cheese knives, cheese boards, raclette machines and fondue pots.
The East Vancouver store is home to our production kitchen where our chefs prepare our popular line of frozen ready to heat soups and entrees. Everything is made from scratch, and in small batches. WE use quality local ingredients like Rossdown Farms Poultry and Pemberton Meadows beef. These meals can be purchased at all les amis du FROMAGE stores.
We look forward to serving you.
