NYC: Levain Bakery

NYC: Levain Bakery

This should have been my first TREATS post.  But I didn't have the shots.  So I went back to New York just for them.  Well.  Not just for them.  But mostly... [ssh don't tell my friends].

London: Weligama

Say what.

London: Milo and Hector's

Social media is a wonderful thing.  Particularly when it allows you to revisit old places, reconnect with old friends, and rediscover the delights of an ice cream sandwich, in a new place, with new friends.

London: The Cheese Truck

London: The Cheese Truck

Goat’s cheese, honey, Walnuts, and just a touch of crispy-Sage-embossed crust.  If that isn't a recipe for the best Grilled Cheese you've ever eaten I don't know what is.

San Francisco: Le Marais

Working at one of the best (I'm trying not to be biased here...) bean-to-bar American chocolate companies, certainly had its perks.  For one thing, it was an excuse to discover the hippest joints, meet top chefs, and of course, eat the most delectable desserts.   That coupled with my mission to find San Francisco's best pastries, landed me squarely in front of Le Marais one morning, at 7am before work.  Some people might call me crazy.  I like to think it's just dedication to my work...

Napa: Bouchon Bakery

Nevertheless, that said, sometimes queuing for the best this that and the other, is simply part of the experience.  Such can be said for Bouchon Bakery, in Yountville (Napa), California. 

Paris: Le Loir Dans La Théière

Paris: Le Loir Dans La Théière

A few years ago the search for brunch in Paris would have rendered few results.  While this New York and Californian trend is finally making its way over the pond, Le Loir Dans La Théière remains a must-eat on my list.
