Bouchon bakery Irish soda bread

St Patrick’s day is long past but I had a really nice Irish soda bread from Bouchon in the Time Warner Center 2 weeks ago and felt it was worth a mention (I doubt it’s even still available).  The single serving bread was served like a muffin wrapped in wax paper.  The bread had a nice aroma and was not sweet as an Irish soda bread should be.  Read the interesting history of Irish Soda bread  here.

New York foodies and macarons: A match made in almond flour

Bisous Ciao had the NYC macaron crown for almost 2 years

Why is it so important for New Yorkers to know what other people think is “the best”?   With the opening of Laduree in New York City there has been a considerable amount of macaron hype, most of it around how superior their macarons are to everything else. Last week I finally got to try about eight of them (thank you Doctore) and I can safely say they are the best this city has to offer right now.  They feature perfect buttercream, super-soft almond flour cookie shell and insanely strong flavors–despite flying 3600 miles from Paris every day!   (more…)

Bouchon Bakery Peanut Butter and Jelly Macaron

It may be freezing here in NYC but peanuts and jelly are in season at Bouchon!  That’s right, the seasonal macaron at Bouchon Bakery is PB & J.  For a mere $3.25 you can get an extra large size French Macaron filled with delicious peanut butter and house made jelly.  My photos don’t capture the magenta coloring of the cookie but don’t be fooled, the staff told me that despite it’s berry flavored color the cookie doesn’t have a flavor.  The photo also makes the macaron look a bit “crackely”–while the crust wasn’t super soft it wasn’t hard either.
