Kouign Aman ---- somebody must be baking them in Toronto

Island Girl | Oct 4, 2012 08:48 PM

I searched the Chowhound threads and I've done all sorts of Google searches but nothing is jumping out to say that a bakery in Toronto is making Kouign Amann pastries. David Leibovitz has good a recipe for them on his blog and while it is multi-step if anyone is a French baker they would see that it is a laminated yeast dough with lots of butter and white sugar. The descriptions on various blogs and food websites all seem mythic and I'm surprised there aren't more bakeries making these pastries. I've tried to make them myself but not being a trained pastry chef the dough lamination process left a lot to be desired although the finished product tasted pretty good. I was just hoping some bakery in Toronto was now making them regularly.
