The Montrose Child Care Centre is located in Little Italy, and supports over 90 families in the Toronto area. Aside from a daycare, it is also a place for children to be nurtured and to grow in a safe, ideal environment.
The teachers and staff at Montrose Child Care Centre have been working hard at developing programs tailored specially for children at certain age groups , providing the care and attention necessary to help them learn. They also have their own chef who prepares nutritious, mainly vegetarian and fresh food every day.
As a member of the community, Le Dolci is proud to assist in their fundraiser by donating one of our decorating classes. We hope to be part of the Montrose Child Care Centre expansion in helping children have a better learning environment, as well as providing training and education to the staff at the centre. They are hoping to provide field trips to local museums and events too, so that the children can have the opportunity to experience different adventures outside the child care centre.
We are happy to assist Montrose Child Care Centre in achieving these goals, by donating one of our classes to their silent auction. The auction will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2012. To find out more details on how you can help, visit Montrose Child Care Centre’s website!
Located in the heart of the Beamsville Bench, Rosewood is Niagara’s first winery and meadery. Producing award winning grape and honey wines, Rosewood is proud to be one of Canada Top 25 Wineries since its inception. With bee hives scattered all over the Niagara Escarpment, Rosewood is a proud honey producer and strives to produce natural wildflower honey from Niagara’s bounty.
We’re very happy to have Krys from Rosewood to share her knowledge on honey and mead with everyone. There will be various types of honey products to taste and learn about the similarities and differences between each one. Additionally, there will be several types of mead to sample! What about a mead cocktail? Krys will also be showing us which ingredients are best to make a refreshing and tasty mead cocktail.

While looking through cook books and baking supplies at Good Egg in Kensington Market, we came across a very cute book entitled Pâtisseries à Paris, published by Paumes. Yes, this book is in Japanese, but we couldn’t resist purchasing it because it’s just too adorable!
This book features many famous pâtisseries in Paris, including Pierre Hermé, Ladurée, Angelina, Sadaharu Aoki, Carette, etc. With so many beautiful photos of cakes, macarons, tartlettes, éclairs, and chocolates, it was impossible to put the book back down at the store. Although the writing is in Japanese for the most part, the addresses are not – so that’s still helpful for our upcoming visit to Paris this July! 🙂
Le Dolci will be going to Paris this July, and there is still one more spot left for this fun foodie trip! Along with us, there will be many interesting activities to participate in, such as learning how to bake French pastries and going on tours. You’ll get the chance to make your own bread, croissants, and éclairs! Additionally, there will be optional tasting dinners and cruises to take part in. On this trip, there will also be free afternoons and evenings for you to explore Paris, and visit many of the lovely pâtisseries listed in this book! To find out more about the Paris trip, visit http://www.ledolci.com/paris-2012!
At Le Dolci, we love creativity and especially when it has to do with sweet treats! We came across this little article on Cheeseburger Cupcakes from the Trend Hunter website, and knew we had to share this cute idea. They’re fun to eat for all ages and will definitely have everyone going “Oohhh” and “Aahhh”.
KatDW included step-by-step photos on her Flickr account about the process, which is extremely helpful. Kate actually came up with the idea of sharing this guide after being surprised by her boyfriend with these unique cheeseburger cupcakes.
Whether it’s for a party or a gathering, your family and friends will be impressed by your baking skills. They’re fun to make, sweet to taste, and amazing to look at!
