Chocolatier Constance Popp

October17

Constance and I met a number of years ago, brought together for Canola Camp.  I had been to her first location in old St. James on Portage Ave. but had never had the opportunity to visit her at her new home on Provencher Ave.

This amazing creation was made to celebrate the upcoming Dali exhibit at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.  Constance is always promoting something to do with a not-for-profit organization or cultural event in our fair city.

I spotted this in the front window of her Provencher Ave. shop.

Look at the detailing and artistry of the work?  Even the lace is edible, having been made from spun sugar.

Wouldn’t it be fun and delicious to eat your way through this chess game?

Everywhere you look in the pristine little shop, there is something delectable to purchase as a treat or a great gift.

On the day that I visited, they were promoting their extended selection of baked goods and I was very impressed with the classic pastry offerings.

But my very favourite treat, when I visit Constance’s shop is her hot chocolate. Remember the scene in the movie “Chocolat” when the character portrayed by Juliette Binoche prepares a chocolate elixir for one of her patrons?  I cannot imagine that the concoction could possibly taste better than this-heavenly.

There are a couple of bistro tables in the shop to enjoy said hot chocolate or perhaps a croissant.  I look forward to taking our Frenchman there for a visit very soon.

Kath’s quote: “If you are not feeling well, if you have not slept, chocolate will revive you. But you have no chocolate! I think of that again and again! My dear, how will you ever manage?”-Marquise de Sévigné

Love-that is all.
