On breadmaking day in Newfoundland lunch is served with toutons, if you are lucky. The morning that we were preparing to go to St. Johns, Mom was making bread. I snagged some of the dough to fry up for toutons (pronounced taotins). It is white bread dough, after it has risen, pulled into a small disk shaped and fried in melted butter. Traditionally served with a drizzle of molasses.
We also had salt fish cakes with mustard pickles.
We needed a latte and went to Fixed Coffee and Baking on Duckworth St.,
it was a really good latte, complete with pretty design in the foam, and they have awesome chocolate chip cookies!
We have also had their bagels for breakfast. I love a good bagel and their’s was sooo good, a crisp crusty outside and dense and chewy on the inside. I wish I had one tomorrow for breakfast!
If you are in St. John’s I would recommend a visit to Fixed Coffee and Baking.
