Ready to spread some joy throughout the GTA, jam producer Bonne Maman partnered up with top artisan shops across Toronto for the 1st annual JAM IN THE CITY.
Made from the same time-honoured traditional French recipes used since the very beginning of the brand, Bonne Maman provided select makers and bakers one of four featured jams (APRICOT, RASPBERRY, BLUEBERRY & STRAWBERRY) from which they each made a special limited-time treat to be enjoyed by the hungry public.
Adding a little more sweetness to this delectable special, purchasers received a gift with purchase.
“I was very excited to have Nadège participating in this event. Personally, I adore Bonne Maman jam on slices of homemade brioche, a wonderful childhood memory from my time in France. So, at Nadège, I introduced a limited-edition macaron flavour made with Bonne Maman raspberry jam and a salted caramel, a perfect combination of sweet and salty.” – Nadège Nourian, Owner of Nadège Patisserie
“I’ve been a big fan of Bonne Maman, their iconic jar and checkered lid since my first trip to France in the 1970’s. Bonne Maman were ahead of the curve in creating products with natural ingredients with no artificial colours or preservatives added. I feel that Dufflet Pastries shares a similar tradition, adding a little sweetness to your day with delicious premium items that you can actually trust.” – Dufflet Rosenberg, Owner of Dufflet Pastries
Along with having no artificial colouring or preservatives, Bonne Maman jams are Non-GMO Project Verified and have no high fructose corn syrups, making JAM IN THE CITY a delicious fall experience.
“Growing up in France, a toasted baguette with butter and jam was a morning favourite and beside homemade jams, we always had a few different kinds of Bonne Maman jars in our pantry. I’ve worked with Bonne Maman in the past and had such a great experience. It was an easy “Yes” to be part of this delicious program.” – Bertrand Alépée, Owner of The Tempered Room
