1. Tartine Bakery, San FranciscoAmerica's best bakeries
Tartine emerged as this year's top bakery, and there are good reasons why. The bakery, opened by James Beard Award-winning chefs Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson in 2002, excels at both breads and pastries. Their bread, available in plain country or with walnuts, sesame seeds or olives, is made from locally milled organic flours and sea salt and baked on a stone hearth. Tartine embraces its sense of place, using local produce to create delicious pastries like morning buns and banana cream tarts. The bakery remains a local gem, and those who can't visit right away may want to try recipes from the two cookbooks, Tartine and Tartine Bread.
Dominique Ansel is Now Making Breakfast Cereal | Serious Eats : New York
Last week, with very little fanfare, Dominique Ansel Bakery released a new holiday item that might prove to be very popular, especially for those who enjoy sugary American breakfast cereal. Dominique Ansel's Christmas Morning Cereal ($15) is the bakery's first foray into the cold cereal market.
その名も"Christmas Morning Cereal"。ちょっと食べてみたい気もするけれど、NYの店頭でしか手にはいらない。しかも$15もするｗ。ちょっと上から目線杉のような気が。
