Pan Dulce is the traditional sweet bread of Mexico that everyone has seen in local latin supermarkets. But it's not the only sweet pastry in Mexican tradition. La Monarca is one of the premier bakeries in town. Ricardo Cervantes has created a bake shop in the style of the pastelerias of Mexico City. It’s not simply a bakery, but a dessert stop that features Mexican sweet delicacies with French influence of the past. You will find a sweet moist Tres Leches cake or Tiramisu or Napoleons call Mil Hojas. Ricardo will guide us on a tour of his bakery where we can meet their French chef who will demonstrate how some of the desserts are made. You will be able to sample a wide variety of their cakes, cookies and sweet breads, including their three kinds of frozen desserts . They feature water-based nieves (water based ices), and helados (ice creams). The cost of the tour, including sweet samples is $10. Payment will be collected at the time of this event. But we ask that you please not sign up unless you feel sure you can attend. Take a look at the review of their new store in E.L.A. from our member, Javier, who is kind enough to share his photo with us. Do not confuse their new store with the actual huge bakery in Huntington Park which is where we will tour.
