Banneton/Brotform in Montreal


I'm looking for bannetons/brotforms in Montreal. I feel like there should be a place that sells them because there's much bread in this city! :)

I've tried Ares, Quincallerie Dante, La Soupière and Les Touilleurs but to no avail.

Any suggestions/leads would be much appreciated!

...I doubt that you'll find them anywhere.  You could try restaurant/hotel supply places, but even there I'm not sure.  I underwent a similar search a few years ago for a Pullman pan and ended up ordering one from  You could try her.

Just checked the online store, no bannetons or brotforms to be found there.

Yup, i emailed Golda's to check and they said that if I ordered now, they would probably get the stock in jan/feb. :(

I don't know if you're looking for the traditional or plastic sort, but if you want the plastic ones, I've got some I'll sell you.  I no longer use them and they're just taking up space (and collecting flour).   That goes for anyone else too.

Just email me so we don't turn TFL into Craig's List.
