Sweet potatoes get the star treatment at adamson
Bakery, a Leaside shop that—oh, by the way— doubles as a barbecue joint. The filling, made from fresh sweet potatoes, cinnamon and nutmeg, with a prominent vanilla note, has a luxurious smoothness. The fluted crust, made with butter and brisket tallow, is then ringed with dollops of whipped cream and roasted pepitas—it’s a dessert pie, but it goes pretty darn well with the savouries on the table, too. $24. 176 Wicksteed Ave., 647-559-2080.
