Fieldstone Artisan Breads The best of the season

here’s nothing better than the heady, delicious smells wafting from Fieldstone Artisan Breads, especially around the holidays. For anyone hosting a seasonal cocktail party, open house, or Christmas feast with all the trimmings, Fieldstone is a “must visit” destination.

Fieldstone is renowned year-round for their lovingly hand-shaped breads, made with the finest organic flours and baked in a French-stone hearth oven. At Christmas, their cute-as-a-button “Candy Cane Baguettes” are a sure winner, as are their specialty seasonal artisan breads, including Ginger and Pear, Fig and Anis, and the delicious Country Harvest Stuffing bread. At Christmas, Fieldstone overflows with specialty sweet treats, and the beautifully packaged cookies, pistachio and cranberry French chocolate bark, and rich, moist fruit cakes make perfect hostess gifts. Also popular is the bakery’s highly coveted German Stollen recipe. “It’s a traditional Dresdner-style stollen made with rum-soaked raisins, currants, citron and almonds in a dense butter yeast dough with a marzipan core—irresistible!” exclaims baker and owner, Paul Hanley. In addition, Fieldstone also carries a variety of speciality gourmet foods, including a line imported from Europe that is not available anywhere else in the local area.


A Christmas tradition at Fieldstone is the mouth-watering Tourtiere, a traditional Quebecoise meat pie. Paul raves about this savoury favourite, noting “we started making tourtiere nine years ago, and it’s firmly become a festive favourite. Our loyal customers now clamour for it year round! The smell of baking tourtiere wafting through the bakery is unbeatable. The cinnamon...the nutmeg—it’s like being in Quebec for Christmas!” For those too time starved to do their own holiday baking, Fieldstone is the place to go for buttery shortbread, melt-in-your-mouth pecan frosties, and exceptional mince tarts—truly better than grandma used to make! This festive season be sure to stop by Fieldstone Artisan Breads on Crescent Road in South Surrey—it is the season to indulge after all! #2 - 12823 Crescent Road (downstairs), South Surrey 604 531 7880 Visit Fieldstone Artisan Breads on Facebook

Are your teeth aging faster than you are? We have all heard it...Fifty is the new forty! Sixty is the new fifty! And so on. Unfortunately, not true for the teeth. Teeth are wearing out at a record pace. Theories for the Before reconstruction acceleration of enamel loss vary from stress and tooth grinding, to bite collapse, to braces with extractions and/or retraction, to airways issues. Did you know that some of the most worn out teeth occur in people who snore? The prevalence of the deteriorating dentition has created new challenges for dental professionals. No longer are patients in their 50’s accepting of dark and worn teeth or eroding gum lines. Patients in their 60’s do not want to have dentures like their parents or grandparents had. People are feeling younger, and they want to look younger too. The appearance of the teeth is a big part of that desire.

After reconstruction

So what is being done to thwart this premature aging process? Firstly, prevention. If your dentist has the proper training, the problem will be identified early and treated with functional orthodontics. Cosmetic Dentistry Preferably without extractions. If the teeth have already worn Tooth Whitening out, then reconstructive procedures can be considered. Once Smile Makeover Facelift Dentistry again, training of the dentist is paramount.
