Thomas Haas Fine Chocolates & Pâtisserie

>> Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Another day, another pâtisserie. Ahhhh ... the sacrifices we make.

I met a friend at the Kitsilano Thomas Haas location, and we decided to share two exquisite looking pastries: a pear galette



and a sour-cherry turnover.



As we were licking our fingers, who but Thomas Haas himself pops around with a pretty plate of chocolates for sampling. This man loves his chocolate. He is buzzing around his shop as happy as a clam (or truffle?). It makes me giddy just thinking about it.

Not willing to face my sweetie empty-handed, I ordered a brioche to go.

Moist and airy, with the right amount of sweetness, it is the Audrey Hepburn of pastries: classic, fun and leaving you wanting more everyday.

This place is great for meeting a special friend, buying a gift to show someone you love them, or just to indulge yourself.

And don't forget to pick up some Chocolate Sparkle cookies.
