Old school celebrity Baker opens shop in Brooklyn

Read about this new Bakery in Brooklyn opened by a retired baker. Unfortunately it's quite a ways from where I live... but maybe that's a good thing. (-;

Mexican Concrete

In Cortelyou Road some mexican bakers are situated showing in their windows enormous cakes looking like baked from concrete

Great great grandmother's cherry tart from Vienna

This cherry tart turned out beautiful and tasty, but only after having a lot of work to find ingredients, getting the recipe from Denmark sent from Magnus and converting all the measures from european standards to american.
The funny thing is that americans that love going back to basics laugh when you want to preserve fruits yourself.
We enjoyed eating it!
