Sandrine French Pastry & Chocolate
A native of Lyon, France, the eponymous chef and proprietor of Sandrine French Pastry & Chocolate crafts her sweets from scratch daily using traditional Gallic techniques. As she works, the shop's pristine white countertops populate with flaky croissants, artisanal chocolate truffles, and delicate macarons in flavours such as pistachio, earl grey, and passion fruit. Colourful boxes or cellophane wrappers prepare dainty treats for gifting, and savoury options including quiche and pâté sate lunchtime appetites. In addition, cooking classes summon patrons into Chef Sandrine's kitchen to learn such culinary skills as how to summon the fire-breathing dragon that caramelizes the top of every crème brûlée.
