A French rave!
Le petit déjeuner du week end est un réel bonheur ici à Calgary, depuis qu'il est accompagné des excellentes viennoiseries de Pascal (croissants, chocolatines, brioches, pains aux raisins). Elles sont vraiment délicieuses, et sont même d'une qualité que l'on est loin de trouver partout en France.
De plus, la cuisson est vraiment très facile car très bien expliquée: il faut vraiment suivre le processus à la lettre. Et puis, quel plaisir cette odeur au petit matin… Pour couronner le tout, un accueil sans pareil, franco canadien, souriant, personnalisé.
Merci vraiment de partager avec nous votre passion pour "les bonnes choses". Marie-Claire BRÉVART
I have fallen in love with these croissants! When I travel to Paris in April, it will be hard to find any croissants that measure up to these ones! Steena Holmes

Pascal is a gift to us from the south of France. I know what he has found. You need to find him. John Greaves
Heather Mitchell - Love you guys and will always sing your praises.
Me and Courtney absolutely loved the pastries. Those were honestly the best pain au chocolats I have ever had. I have even been to France (Paris) and had lots of criossants, none of which were as good as what you gave us. Luke James | LVJ Haberdasher
The Chouquettes were baked that very night...The pain au chocolat and cinnamon rolls were baked on Christmas morning. This is now an official tradition in our house, with many more to come. As well as any time we need beautiful pastries. They brought both Ashleigh and myself back to our times in France. They are as good as, or better than any I can remember.

Dear Lison and Pascal,
I just wanted to let you know that the pastries were incredibly delicious. Absolutely perfect, and the best morning ritual to enjoy with my visiting friend.
I've been reading your blog, too, and think it's wonderful. I'm so happy you're in Calgary.
Best and warmest wishes,

We the pastrymakers promise you
We pledge the first ingredient we roll into our pastries is love
We put our hearts into our pastries. Perhaps that’s why when we do bake, we always seem to find heart-shaped pastry crumbs everywhere - really! It may sound a bit cliché but don’t you believe you can taste the difference love makes?
#2 CURATED INGREDIENTS
We pledge to use the finest natural local and international ingredients
Nine flours and five butters later, we strive to source the most natural and best tasting ingredients we can find so we can craft the highest quality pastries for your best possible pastry experience ever.
#3 THAT SOMETHING SPECIAL
We pledge our pastries will always possess that certain “je ne sais quoi"
Not just because Pascal is French ~ he was born and raised in Toulouse, France ~ but because pastrymaking is his passion. He has handmade over 2 million pastries in the 20 years since he started at age 14. He is now solely dedicated to the pastry genre of ‘Viennoiserie’ ~ a dying art even in France.
