Iconic French pâtisserie Ladurée will soon be expanding its Toronto offerings.
In addition to its Yorkdale location, which opened to massive crowds in December, the French export will be opening a pastry laboratory in Toronto, where hungry patrons can find croissants and cakes like the Ispahan, Marie Antoinette, and Saint-Honoré to name a few.
Daily Hive Toronto reached out to Ladurée Canadian licensee Olesya Krakhmalyova, who confirmed the news of the pastry laboratory, adding that while there isn’t a confirmed opening date, Ladurée hopes to open its Toronto pastry laboratory sometime in 2019.
If you happen to be on the west coast, you can get a taste for what the pastry lab offers, as the sweet maker recently opened its first lab in Vancouver.
In true Ladurée fashion, a trained pastry chef moved all the way from France to set up shop in the brand’s new Vancouver pastry laboratory to create the sweets, so you know they are going to be good.
The laboratory will allow Ladurée pastry chefs to prepare the brand’s famous cakes and pastries that are currently unavailable in Canada.
