I am Canadian.
A Canadian living in the USA.
When I lived in Canada, going to the bakery was one of my favorite things. I ‘m not a baker (too many rules), but I really love eating baked goods (ZERO rules there!)
Canadian bakeries are AMAZING – not only for the sweet treats, but for the savory ones as well. My top bakery treats have always been the savory ones, with sausage rolls being the king of all bakery treats. Living in the USA, one of the many things I miss are trips to a really good Canadian bakery.
I developed this recipe as a way of bringing a little of my childhood to my family today. Summer savory and Marjoram are old-fashioned spices, but ones that I adore. They are both earthy and rich in flavor.
My Granny Mack used both of these spices often … so when I cook with them I can literally taste the memories.
Food is memories, after all.
