To Die For Fine Foods
To Die For Fine Foods is on its way to becoming Vancouver's premier plant-based baked goods company. Known for their sweet and salty, macadamia and dark chocolate-topped banana bread, this passionate local company uses quality, ethical ingredients like organic bananas and organic flour. Six years ago when East Van resident Erin Ireland started the company in her small apartment, her goal was to produce the highest quality, most delicious baking on the market. Five years later, she's repositioned the business with a vegan-only offering. Olive oil and vegan butter has replaced butter and psyllium husk and agar agar has replaced eggs. The Pie Hole is proud our Banana Cream Pie uses To Die For's Banana Bread in its production.
