Artisanal marshmallows

These gourmet bites are not your typical puffs


Move over macarons —there’s a new sweet in town. Gourmet marshmallows are experiencing a boom right now and they ain’t your typical supermarket variety. Handcrafted, small-batch and available in strange new flavours, this campfire snack is upping its artisanal ante as more bakeries craft versions with all-natural ingredients. For morsels of pure pillowy goodness, check out New York City’s Three Tarts Bakery for strawberry-basil, or try the passion fruit variety at Manhattan’s Épicerie Boulud. In Canada, you can find gin-and-tonic marshmallows at Toronto’s Nadège Patisserie and peanut butter ripple at The Pink Spatula in Vancouver, B.C.

Gear review: Icebreaker Cruise Cardigan

New Zealand’s Icebreaker line of apparel is known for its base layers, but less so for its casual travel clothes. The beauty of all-natural merino wool is that it’s great for changeable weather. Icebreaker’s women’s Cruise Cardigan is a smart, stylish cover-up that is thin enough to wear in more humid climes as it cools you down, but it also keeps you warm in cooler temperatures. It was easy to double-duty the trendy cardigan as my base layer on a brisk morning hike in Mexico and as my only outer layer to yoga classes.
