Kookoo Cafe – Brookline, MA

October 1st, 2012 · No Comments

Good coffee so far seems a bit hard to find in Boston. It’s easy to find coffee, but there doesn’t (yet) seem to be the kind of coffee culture that you see in Portland or Seattle here. So a friend who knows food suggested we meet for a quick coffee here. Good news: Kookoo does […]

PB Boulangerie Bistro – Wellfleet, MA

September 17th, 2012 · No Comments

Stopped by here today on the way to Provincetown. Definitely worth a trip; so far in New England we’ve visited lots of bakeries, but nothing that is really a boulangerie. This place is most definitely a boulangerie. For the uninitiated: Flour, in Boston, is a bakery. Great, delicious, soft, sweet, cake-y goods. Thomas Haas, in […]

Emmerys – Copenhagen, Denmark

October 3rd, 2010 · No Comments

Always searching out delicious baked goods, we read about Emmerys somewhere or other and as it was literally around the corner from our apartment in Copenhagen, we decided to give it a try – and yes, it totally worked out. Emmerys is a beautiful food store, with multiple locations in Copenhagen, but with a very […]

Reinh van Hauen Bakery – Copenhagen, Denmark

October 2nd, 2010 · No Comments

This bakery was mentioned in a couple of articles that we found – apparently it is a favourite of Claus Meyer, chef of Noma, according to an article in the latest edition of the Monocle. We thought we’d try it out – we went to the sandwich shop at the department store Magasin and we […]

Bo Bech Bakery – Copenhagen, Denmark

October 1st, 2010 · No Comments

As I mentioned before – the most important thing when coming to a new city is to find all the good bakeries. And at Bo Bech, we found a bakery that while it produces only one product – a loaf of bread – it produces what I would have to consider as the best bread […]

Lagkagehuset Bakery – Copenhagen, Denmark

September 30th, 2010 · No Comments

One of the first things that you need to figure out about any city is where the good bakery is. And Copenhagen certainly has its share of good bakeries. Lagkagehuset is one of them, with about 10 locations around the city. We tried their Muesli bread – covered in pumpkin seeds, whole wheat inside, with […]

Pierre Hermé – Paris, France

May 15th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Yes, I know that we’ve been here before, and written about it before. But it’s so good, that it needs writing about again. We were on our way to the very beautiful Musée de l’Orangerie this afternoon when we took a detour and took the M12 Metro line all the way to the Pasteur stop […]

Thomas Haas (Kitsilano) – Vancouver, BC

November 16th, 2009 · No Comments

Amazing. Not only does he produce the best pastries that I have had in North America – and better than many I have had in France, but he has replicated his business in North Vancouver and opened a Kitsilano branch. He will be busy. Saturday morning – about 11:30 (late start) – we pick up […]

Xurreria – Barrio Gotic, Banys Nous – Barcelona

October 20th, 2009 · No Comments

So – after reading a blog about churros – we hunted down the Xurreria (the Catalan spelling of churreria) on Banys Nous in the Bario Gotic (I don’t know the exact address but it is a few doors down from a milk bar called La Granja (c/ Banys Nous 4, Gotico)). Twice we went by […]

Bubo – Barcelona

October 20th, 2009 · No Comments

This is one of the best patisseries in Spain and can hold its own around the world. In fact, it is famous for the world’s best chocolate cake, an award that pastry chef Carles Mampel won a few years ago. Try the chocolate cake or for that matter any of the other beautifully presented desserts […]
