the NUMMERLAND-mexico connection
… there was Nummers! Gourmet. In 2015 Carolynn Pawluk, a Banff-born, Argentine-trained pastry chef with a love of Latin culture, decided to bring her skill and knowledge of world cuisine and baking to the Okanagan, where her family spent every summer since the '70s. Having travelled extensively over the past two decades—particularly in Latin America—she now calls Summerland home.
With the help of her sister Leanne, Nummers! garnered fans at farmers' markets for three years selling delicious artisan pastries and confections inspired by recipes from other parts of the world, using quality local ingredients.
In 2018 Nummers! announced a rebranding and expansion of its business with the launch of Nummerland Paletas. Now Nummerland pays homage to these fresh and delicious Mexican treats using local fruits and whole ingredients, and are committed to supporting small artisan producers here at home and in the heartland of central Mexico.
