Gabi & Jules, a new collection of locally made baked goods from Caffe Divano, including pies, jams, granola and scone mixes. Gabi & Jules products will be available at Caffe Divano Port Moody and select Coquitlam Farmer’s markets starting May 10th. A portion of the proceeds from Gabi & Jules products will go to the Autism Support Network.
Locally made artisan pies benefiting Autism Support Network launches in the Tri-Cities
In a world where nearly everything is par-baked, frozen and shipped for thousands of miles before it meets your lips, it’s nice to know people like Lisa and Patrick Beecroft are bucking the trend to make homemade a reality. Building on the success of their boutique coffee shops, Caffe Divano, which emphasize wholesome, made-from-scratch options; Lisa and Patrick have launched Gabi & Jules.
Gabi & Jules is a new line of locally made baked goods including artisan pies, jams, granola and scone mixes to enjoy at home. The pies will be their signature item, with new flavours introduced monthly.
More than simply their children’s names, Gabi & Jules is a labour of love to support their family and the Autism Support Network. Juliana Beecroft, Lisa & Patrick’s eldest daughter, was diagnosed with Autism. “When you receive the diagnosis, you are suddenly responsible for determining the support your child gets and employing a team to help them, and that can be very overwhelming,” says Lisa Beecroft. Gabi & Jules will help to support the Autism Support through product sales and events throughout the year.
The first event was the official launch of Gabi & Jules, a pie and ice cream tasting evening called Gabi & Jules a la mode. Last Friday, local pie lovers were served flights of Gabi & Jules pie samples paired with Rocky Point Ice Cream and all proceeds from the event went to the Autism Support Network.
“We are thrilled to have support from Gabi & Jules and the money raised will go towards helping local families and advocating for Autism support in the community,” says Jodie Wickens, Executive Director, at the Autism Support Network.
The products are available exclusively at the Port Moody Caffe Divano, as well as at the first Coquitlam Farmer’s Market of each month. For more info go to www.gabiandjules.com
