History

Once upon a time there was a Madame who wanted to indulge in delicious food and change the world of sweet desserts. One day, she decided to invent a pastry cream that would break with convention. TA-DAMSKI! The children shouted with joy and the whole family sat and ate the entire pie for dessert. Is it sweetened with either the vanilla or caramel date puree? Of course, and it contains no added refined sugar. That’s the reason everyone is using this cream in all their favourite recipes. Bye-bye refined sugar, hello date puree. Hahaha!

If you make it as shown on the photo, topped with bananas, pecans and Skor caramel toffee bits or chocolate chips… just wait and see, the deliciously flattering compliments will come flying.

This recipe will feature in my upcoming cookbook, available in summer 2021.

FAQ

Where can I buy Madame Labriski date puree?

At IGA, Rachelle Béry, Marché Tradition and Bonichoix grocery stores across Quebec. My purees contain no preservatives and can be found in the fruit and vegetable section (yes, dates are fruit) near the pre-cut fruit and vegetables. If you can’t find them, simply ask a member of staff!

The recipe calls for a plant-based beverage, can I use regular cow’s milk instead?

Yes, always.

What can I use as a substitute for one type of nut?

Simply any other type of nut you have in the cupboard (almonds, cashews, pecans, etc.). For example, if you don’t have any walnuts, you can use pecans. The important thing is not to tear your hair out!
