French pastries influenced by Hawaiian flavors
Sponsored by Soleil d’Hawaii Bakery
This holiday season, give the gift of bread and baked goods with Soleil d’Hawaii Bakery where France meets Hawaii! HI Now host Jobeth Devera is checking what the bakery has to offer.
“Soleil d’Hawaii Bakery is an artisan bakery — French pastries influenced by Hawaiian flavors,” says Fanny Queloz, the executive baker.
Soleil d’Hawaii Bakery is proud to serve best quality baked goods by using fresh ingredients and working in small batches. Its baked goods are inspired by local flavors, but with a European touch.
Queloz says the bakery is popular for its canelé, a cooked custard with a mochi-like texture. Also popular is the bakery’s sweet bread. While it is less sweet, it has a wonderfully soft and dense texture. One of Soleil d’Hawaii Bakery’s newest items is the mochi doughnut, which you can buy fresh every morning.
Special for the holidays, the bakery is offering a brown butter pumpkin pie and a hapa pie, which is pumpkin on the bottom half and custard brûlée on top. Don’t forget to grab a loaf of freshly baked sweetbread while you’re at it!
“The apple cranberry is a favorite — very moist and delicious. And then we have the lilikoi meringue pie, that’s our classic, and a macadamia nut fudge pie,” Queloz lists.
For Christmas, don’t miss Soleil d’Hawaii Bakery’s yule logs and tropical fruit stolen. Why stop at the holidays? The bakery even offers a selection of cakes available for birthdays or special occasions that can be ready within one hour.
You can also buy a variety of daily fresh pastries and desserts at its storefront cafe in Salt Lake. Looking to order ahead of time? You can place pre-orders and even pay online at soleilbakery.com.
