ELEANOR BEAUREGARD BLACK BEAR - NOTE CARD
ON THE BACK OF THE CARD:
Eleanor Beauregard Black Bear loves to bake. Oh, how she relishes going through her pantry to find new and unusual flavour profiles, tweaking and creating as she goes. Of course, there are some recipes that she'd never dream of altering: her wild-strawberry and rhubarb custard square; her buttertart; and, of course, her Scotch bannock (a must at every shore lunch!).
But, surely, one of the most requested desserts at Portage, the patisserie Eleanor co-owns with her one and only, is Albert Cake. It is very nearly as sweet as its namesake, and a-l-l-l-most as beloved. Not quite a cake, per se, but not a pie, either. It is convergence in its most delicious form. Its flaky, fluted crust cradles a moist, vanilla cake, with a layer of raspberry jam spread between and topped with the creamiest of icings. To Eleanor, this tasty-like-the-weekend dessert is the perfect tribute to Albert and their relationship: deliciously unexpected, altogether comforting, and something she hopes will just last for ever.

We print on Canson® Infinity Arches® Aquarelle Rag luxuriously thick 310 gsm, 100% cotton paper. This archival, matte paper with a felt-marked finish and even natural grain showcases crisp detail and vibrant colour. It is mould-made by master papermakers using one of the world’s few remaining cylinder mould machines. The company has been making very high quality art papers such as this since 1492.
Our 90# envelopes come from G.F Smith’s FSC-certified, rich-hued Colorplan range. We fell in love with a beautiful goldenrod shade. According to the ‘World’s Favourite Colour’ study, people associate the feeling of joy with this colour. Also, this is the very shade that enrobes our trusty #2. As all of our images are hand drawn in pencil, we thought it appropriate to give a nod of appreciation.
We donate a portion of gross sales to animal welfare.
