and what it means to c+l...
Last but not least, we are DELICIOUS.
At C+L we have a passion for delicious food + an openness to new food experiences. Everytime we bake, we should be thinking, “This is going to taste amazing.” Our standards for baked goods are HIGH, and every new product at C+L goes through a rigorous process of taste testing throughout our entire staff until we find the perfect balance of flavours and are blown away by it's appearance!
SOURCING THE BEST LOCALLY
Whether it's our ingredients, the retail goods on our shelves, or our business partnerships, supporting our local economy is one of our core values as a company. Check out our LOCAL page for all deets on some of our local sources for ingredients, retail goods, + more!
HIGH QUALITY CHOCOLATES
Whether it be in our C+L Homemade Cream Eggs or atop your favourite chocolate cake, we only use the best quality Callebaut Chocolate. We hand temper chocolate and share a deep passion for the rewards from this timely process.
Callebaut Chocolate is a Belgian couverture chocolate manufacturer. Callebaut chocolate is roasted wholebean, as it was originally done over 100 years ago. This technique allows the preservation of all the flavours and aromatic oils within the cocoa hust and fully releases them in the chocolate. 811 of 823 of Callebaut chocolatier, Octaaf Callebaut's chocolate recipes from 1850 are still produced today!
In May 2012 Callebaut was Belgium's first chocolate brand to shift to sustainably grown cocoa for all its Finest Belgian Chocolate recipes. The launch of Callebaut's Growing Great Chocolate program was aimed at making cocoa cultivation a sustainable source of income for West African farmers and have a positive impact on farmer livelihoods.
