Santa, dear, we’re in a hurry…It’s time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough. For I’ve grown a little leaner, Grown a little colder, Grown a little sadder, Grown a little older, I need a little angel Sitting on my shoulder, I need a little Christmas NOW. – Johnny Mathis

French Delicacies – Special for the holidays!

We would like to showcase some of the delicacies oftentimes overshadowed by Panettone and all of the exquisite boxes of chocolates available during the holidays. Below are some amazing French Delicacies along with other items that are amazingly delicious this time of year.

Le Comptoir de Mathilde Baba au Rhum

Rum Babas were believed to have been invented in France by pastry chef Nicolas Stohrer in 1730. The addition of rum to the cakes was added to recipes in 1835. Baba au rhum are traditionally served with a cherry garnish and a bit of whipped cream on top. It is also a decadent treat on its own enjoyed with coffee.
We carry an amazing selection that consists of Baba au Rhum, Baba au Rhum Vanilla and Baba au Rhum Caramel.

La Crepe au Rhum Vanilla

Torta de Siena Paneforts

Panforte is one of Siena’s most famous sweets which dates back to the Middle Ages. It is a spicy, dense cake made from dried figs, nuts, candied fruit, spices and a sugar/honey syrup. This delicious cake is sprinkled on both sides with powdered sugar. It is delightful by itself with coffee or enjoyed on a cheese plate with a mild Gouda.

Filippi Panettone have arrived!

These beautifully packaged Italian holiday cakes in red, yellow and brown may be found in our Studio and throughout the store.

Genoa Salami – Beef Bresoala – Guanciale – Salchichon – Chorizo Iberico – Iberico Pork Sopressata – Creel & Gambrel Artisinal Sausage with Blue Cheese – Creel & Gambrel Pepper Salami

Pepper Salami


This salami is carefully balanced with sea salt, five types of whole and crushed peppercorns and spices – all of which serve to enhance its flavour.

Enjoy sliced paper-thin, on a fresh French baguette. Top it with a light mustard or a delicious truffle butter for an appetizer that is nothing short of decadent. – Creel & Gambrel

Saucisson Sec – Blue Cheese

Saucisson Sec – Blue Cheese is a French-inspired salami made using a classic recipe. Thinly slice and simply serve with bread and a glass of red wine or add to a pasta dish. – Creel & Gambrel


Guanciale is a non-smoked, salt-cured, Italian meat product prepared from pork jowl or cheeks – a specialty of central Italy, particularly Umbria and Lazio. Used for generations in classic pasta creations such as Spaghetti alla Carbonara and Bucatini all’Amatriciana.

Salchichón Ibérico de Bellota

Undoubtedly, one of Spain’s finest cured sausages and made from the world-renowned acorn-fed pork of the famous Iberico Pata Negra pig. Thinly sliced at room temperature our Salchichón Ibérico de Bellota is delicious when served with Manchego cheese or served on a baguette-style loaf and accompanied by either cold beer or red wine.
