A quick shout out to a locally made (and organic, if that floats your boat) product we've been enjoying for quite a while -- We buy ours at the Whole Foods on Cambie and 8th where they off plain, cheese and chocolat in boxes of 6. They are not cheap (about $12 a box) but not bad compared to buying fresh. They are quite large and most importantly they bake up fluffy big and with that crisp that speaks of real butter. The only drawback: you have to "proof" them overnight so a bit of forethought is required. Website is www.vancroissant.com
Gotta go eat my freshly baked cheese one and do the cryptic crossword now!
