West Vancouver patisserie introduces new holiday lineup featuring custom Advent Calendars, Bûche de Noël Yule Log Cakes, authentic German Christmas Stollen and novelty chocolate creations

 

Vancouver, B.C., November 20 – The holiday spirit is in full swing at West Vancouver’s Temper Chocolate & Pastry this month as owner and lead pastry chef Steven Hodge unveils a new holiday collection featuring a festive lineup of gourmet chocolates, truffles, cakes and cookies.
 
Back by popular demand for a second year in a row, Temper’s chocolate Advent Calendar is an enchanting showpiece item featuring a colourful countdown display that reveals miniature chocolates and confections behind each window. Signature Advent Calendars are priced at $65 or can be customized with an assortment of your preferred chocolate flavours for $70 and up. As Temper will be creating a limited number of Advent Calendars this holiday season, pre-orders are required and must be placed before Friday, November 27.
 
Temper will also be making spirits bright with novelty Christmas time chocolates, decadent truffles, seasonal cookies and two traditional European-inspired cakes: sugar-dusted Christmas Stollen ($25 for small, $35 for large), an authentic German fruitcake made with orange, marzipan and almonds; and Bûche de Noël ($45), a classic Yule log cake available in three deliciously decadent flavours – Salted Caramel, Chestnut, and Pear and Hazelnut.
