Where to get Kouign-Amann


2013 Jun 17
I picked up a few pastries on Sunday morning for Father's Day brunch. As usual, everything was top-notch.

Clockwise from top left of the photo: Kouign-Amann, Madeleine, Canelé, macarons: balsamic white chocolate, coconut something, basil and lime.

The madeleine and the canelé were the best I've had. The balsamic white chocolate macaron was amazing (the light tang of balsamic made it taste like good cheesecake!) while the other two were less to my taste. My taste in macarons is boring though -- favourites are always hazelnut and pistachio. :)

This post is really about the Kouign-Amann. It is only available on weekends and it costs $8. But wow, this is like the envied love child of a torrid romance between an eager croissant and a coquettishly coy sticky bun! I was told to heat it in a 350F oven "until it smells really good" (turned out to be about 10 minutes). This crisps it a little and melts the butter throughout. I shared this one amongst 4 people but I am easily able to imagine sitting down with a good coffee and devouring the entire thing as a meal, bite by sinful, enchanting bite. My new favourite pastry.

BTW, to pronounce it, just think of a cross-dressing Jamaican: "Queen Ya Man" :D

Hello and thank you for your kind comment! As the owner of "Kouignettes & Co", I really appreciate it and I'm glad that you liked my products.
I just wanted to mention to you that since the beginning of 2016 the name of our Company has changed and it is now called "La Maison du Kouign-Amann". We still have our wonderful products and much more and you can still find us at the Carp Market every Saturday morning during the summer season or online at www.lamaisondukouignamann.com.
Thank you again and have a wonderful day!

So that's where they went! We went to the Carp market yesterday and that was one of the things on my list. When we got there, those pieces of pure deliciousness were all gone.😥

I chatted briefly with the owner of this business at the Carp Farmers' Market and partook of the samples offered. I was impressed enough with the Kouignette (a personal sized Kouign-Amann) that I bought a tray of five ($10).

After briefly microwaving (as recommended), this was a most enjoyable, warm, delicious, slightly sweet, rich and bready pastry. I can't wait to share the rest with my family. Or maybe I should just stash them somewhere and eat them all myself! >:-)
