Les Petits Chefs make Breakfast Fruit Pastries from The Redpath Canadian Bake Book

This week, for the final week of “cooking the books” with the Petits Chefs for the term, I decided to make a sweet treat from The Redpath Canadian Bake Book, which I wrote about last year when it came out: Redpath Sugar has been a staple in kitchens across Canada for more than 160 years […]
