You might already be familiar with Forno West, an Italian bakery in Westmount known for all kinds of yummy treats. But now the boulangerie/pâtisserie is giving you one more delicious reason to go — especially if you love Nutella.
Forno West has a brand-new Nutella machine, installed earlier this week, to make your favourite Italian delights even better.
The Nutella machine works like a pump. Once you pick a treat, the staff at Forno West start filling it up with as much chocolate-hazelnut goodness as possible.
"Right now, you can use the Nutella pump for our Sicilian brioches and to stuff little buns," Carmela Argento, Forno West's manager, told MTL Blog. However, Argento said Forno West plans to develop more options for baked goods they can stuff full of Nutella for you in the near future.
Even though the machine hasn't been used much yet, Argento gave us the inside scoop on a few of the incredible treats it has in the works with Nutella.
"What's really exciting is our plan to introduce a Nutella turnover without apples. We'll also give customers the option of having a Nutella turnover with almonds inside," she said.
A pâte feuilletée lined with frangipane could also soon be stuffed with Nutella, she said, and Forno West plans to call the creation a "Nufella."
A quick visit to Forno West's website will likely get your taste buds flowing with inspiration.
And, for those of you who are Nutella obsessed and can't get enough of the stuff (who could blame you?), you can always turn to this Nutella map of Quebec to guide you on a Nutella crawl of Montreal.
In Quebec, a vaccine passport is required to access many businesses and activities deemed non-essential, including restaurants and bars.
What is it about Nutella that's so damn good? The chocolate hazelnut spread has a devout fanbase that claims it lives up to its "happiness in a jar" tagline — which is why no one would judge you if wanted to buy a whole gallon of it. And you'd only have to drive 20 minutes to the new Costco outside Montreal to do so.
The Costco Business Centre is a special kind of Costco that opened September 29 in Saint-Hubert. It's only the second of its kind in Canada, and 70% of its items cannot be found at a regular Costco.
While it caters to the needs of businesses, regular Costco members can shop there too, which comes in handy if you like to buy in bulk. Super mega bulk.
