Looking for a high-class way to top off your French toast? Check out Noble Handcrafted, a little Canadian outfit that specializes in small-batch maple syrup for the discriminating foodie. If you’re not already seduced by the tasty flavors like bourbon or vanilla and chamomile, then the stylish packaging is sure to win you over. The bottles – with their cork stoppers, waxy seals, and bold black and white lettering – seem to come straight out of a 19th-century apothecary.
If you’re thinking of indulging in this syrupy goodness, be ready to spend a bit more than you would on a good ol’ Mrs. Butterworth’s. But if you bite the bullet and buy it, you’ll certainly be in good company. Thomas Keller reportedly orders the stuff, as do celebrity chefs Mario Batali and Charlie Trotter. Good enough for them? Good enough for us – and then some.
