So much so, that all of their friends would make comments like, "'OMG, are you joking?! you have to sell these!'" the duo told me.\nChef Tony also realized that no one in Montreal at the time was making the pastries on a large scale, "except for a few little restaurants here and there."\nAnd thus, the OG IG of Bomboloni was born. \n\nThe flavours are as fun to create as they are to taste.\n View this post on Instagram Alert!🚨 what you have all been waiting for...

That's the good thing about them."\nEach flavour also gets its own garnish and topping, "like a special touch," he calls it, that perfectly captures the mini work of art.\nAs for the photos, yep, Chef Tony takes them, himself because the passion and creativity don't stop in the kitchen.\n"The picture is as important as the actual donut," Linda says. \n\nIt's all about the quality.\n View this post on Instagram Happy Wednesday!!

When you take a recipe that's existed for, I don't even know how long, you want to give it justice," Sandra says.
