At Violette, we use natural, organic and locally-sourced ingredients. We use only organic, vegan sugars because we don’t think chemically processed sugar is good for the body. (Note, most commercial sugar is NOT vegan–did you know that?) Our breads, cakes, cookies, tarts and pies are hand-made from scratch. While this means that it takes longer to make each dessert, we think it’s a labor of love. We cook for you like we cook for ourselves and our families. If we wouldn’t eat it, we wouldn’t want you to either. Our emphasis is on bringing back real food into the commercial food chain. Just because you bought it doesn’t mean its not as healthy (or tasty) as anything you’d prepare at home.
We use fresh fruits, edible flowers and seasonal vegetables in almost everything we make. We use no chemical dyes. We hand-mill much of our own flour. We try to use organic olive oil or sunflower oil rather than butter because we think it is better for you and more humane, although we still have a few items that use dairy. Most of our baked goods are dairy free, and some are vegan. We use no soy. Our chocolate contains No soy lecithin. We use nuts: pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and peanut butter — and are not a nut free facility.
We aim for a product that’s not just “good for gluten free,” but rather, that’s just plain good. We welcome you to taste and enjoy!
