Afternoon Tea by Mary-Jean Butler

Afternoon Tea is about family and tradition. As long as I can remember every special gathering in my family has included these tiny French “Bon Ton” pastries; each one was its own work of art. The small Vancouver bakery that created them has been in business since 1926, and weathered many ups and downs but is still a favourite of families in the area. I recall going to the bakery as a young girl and spending what seemed forever to make the monumental decision on which Bon Ton to choose from the dozens offered. The plate shown in the painting was one of my Grandmother’s favourites, and was included in the tradition of serving these pastries during our celebrations.” – Mary-Jean Butler
