Exploring pastry stores and bakeries used to be a hobby of mine. I spent afternoons hopping from one sweet destination to another until my feet ached and my sweet tooth satisfied. That was years ago before I became keenly aware of how my diet affects my athletic performances. I still miss those crazy afternoons filled with sugar and butter but I no longer feel the drive to check out the latest pastry emporium in my hometown.
Many wonderful bakeries have become fixtures in Greater Toronto Area’s culinary landscape. You can find bloggers and reviews on many of them. However, the predominate style are still upscale French or whimsical American baking. I could not contain my excitement when I found out about The Danish Pastry House in Oakville. I was enticed by the promise of traditional flakey buttery danishes in all shapes and sizes.
