There are many elements one could use to associate when talking about Canada and none more so iconic than Canadian Maple Syrup. Maple syrup is mostly extracted from three species of maple trees: Sugar maple, Black maple, and Red maple. The tree sap is extracted by tapping the maple tree over a period of 12 to 20 days then boiled down to a thick treacle like texture bursting with sweetness.
Pure Canadian maple syrup is a healthier alternative to sugar and can be used in a variety of dishes especially desserts and baked goodies. The highest grade maple syrup is considered as liquid gold in the culinary world. The Kingsbury in collaboration with The High Commission of Canada to Sri Lanka and Maldives will be showcasing a plethora of culinary treats using the highest grade maple syrup from Canada. Experience the authentic flavours of Canada at The Canadian Maple Syrup High Tea at The Gourmet Station 2 to 7 May, The Kingsbury Mother’s Day Sunday Brunch at Harbour Court and The Kingsbury Mother’s Day Tea Dance at The Balmoral on 14 May.
