Don't these look wonderful? Delightful to look at. Wonderful to try. The world needs more good bakeries. In the US small independent bakeries had become rare. The work is very labor intensive, the ingredients, if you are using the best can be expensive or simply hard to find. Because we like fresh baked goods early in the day, the bakers often work in the dark of night. The market is dominated by factory produced products, that are inherently cheaper. Mass produced - full of preservatives. Most restaurant baked goods, are really frozen from a handful of mega factories. Slowly the independent local bakeries are coming back. Celebrate them, by spending money, enjoying the good stuff.
I agree. A good bakery is as hard to find these days as a good floral shop. Not many of each like there once was. Or candy shops. Luckily, I have one of each to still go to. Nothing like a good bakery.ReplyDelete
Your personal sweet shop is famousDelete
We have so many good bakeries all over town. Last night we had dinner at a nearby restaurant. After a phenomenal dinner, we had phenomenal desserts. All baked/created on premises. Aaaah!ReplyDelete
Can I move there?Delete
I so agree and I should practice more of what you preach.ReplyDelete
My local farmers market has two bakeries that sell there on Saturdays, the pastry guy was absent last SaturdayDelete
I agree too! Living in the suburbs it is sometimes hard to find a local bakery.ReplyDelete
When we find them they are worth itDelete
The good stuff...one of my dad's memorable sayings. He didn't buy ice cream from the grocery store but instead stopped by a family ice cream store on his way home from work. My kids marveled at Grandpa's delicious ice cream and he would tell them, "This is the good stuff." To this day, when something is extra delicious or they're in a wonderful moment, they will say, "This is the good stuff." Thanks for the smile...Happy Friday!ReplyDelete
I like buying goodies from small independent bakeries every once in awhile too. Every bakery seems to have its own specialty, some treat or another that they're especially good at making!ReplyDelete
There is an amazing pastry shop nearby, and a place that makes amazing cakesDelete
We have a couple of local bakeries here in town, and when we need a sweet, those are the spots.ReplyDelete
That said, I am THAT person that doesn't really care for cakes and cookies and pies and such. I also don't care much for chocolate.
I know! Lock me up!
More for the rest of usDelete
I try new bakeries whenever I can. It makes such a difference.ReplyDelete
There is a new French Bread Bakery nearby that I have not made it to, yetDelete

They are often hidden in plain sight.Delete
We've just returned to a low-carb lifestyle. I will have to enjoy such treats visually-only from now on.ReplyDelete
