Happy Wednesday great foodie friends……
One of the wonderful things about the Napa region is the absolute wonderment of so many wonderful flavors brought to us by award-winning wineries and award-winning chefs…..

Bouchon Bakery brought to us by Chef Thomas Keller (of famed French Laundry, Per Se and Bouchon bistro to name a few locations)

More on Chef Keller:
Thomas Keller (born October 14, 1955) is an American chef, restaurateur, and cookbook writer. He and his landmark Napa Valley restaurant, The French Laundry in Yountville, California, have won multiple awards from the James Beard Foundation, notably the Best California Chef in 1996, and the Best Chef in America in 1997. The restaurant is a perennial winner in the annual Restaurant Magazine list of the Top 50 Restaurants of the World.
In 2005, he was awarded the three star rating in the inaugural Michelin Guide for New York for his restaurant Per Se, and in 2006, he was awarded three stars in the inaugural Michelin Guide to the Bay Area for The French Laundry. He is the only American chef to have been awarded simultaneous three star Michelin ratings for two different restaurants.

what the bakery offers:
The boulangeries, the bakeries, of Paris are filled with the most extraordinary creations – the macaron, the croissant, the tart and any number of exquisite chocolate confections. These staples of Parisian daily life so inspired us that, after opening a Bouchon Bakery next to our Bouchon bistro in Yountville, we wanted to open one near our other restaurants in Las Vegas, New York City and Beverly Hills to bake the bread for them and to add an additional layer of cafe life to the areas that surround them.

From the minute you walk in the door your taste buds start watering as your eyes fill your mind with dreams of flavours that will melt gloriously in your mouth…….

The eyes wander from your side to side as you wish

couldn’t I try 1 of each?

Bakeries can be such a personal preference but every so often you happen upon one that starts right from the beginning of excellence in everything that goes into their creations….. Not only can you taste the love from the heart and the soul in each treat but also the highest quality of ingredients and pure freshness in each bite.

As I have mentioned in many blogs posts before we do truly eat starting from our eyes and that is what pulls you towards the treat that you want. As we were a big group we ordered many treats to share.

….. Delectable……..

I missed the name of these wonderful little tastes of culinary heaven but I won’t forget the deep rich chocolate flavours, perfect with an espresso or why not while in wine country a nice Cabernet from the valley (Cabernet pairs perfectly with dark chocolate!)

Something lighter perhaps? – Oatmeal cookie

The bakery (patisserie) has also nicely packaged offerings that you can “grab & go” or give as a treat / gift to bring into the office or to a friends….

Last but not least, I did notice that Napa Valley seemed to be very “pet friendly” and this also is true of Bouchon….. Fido wasn’t forgotten and can also eat a treat in “gourmet” fashion.

….notice the flavour offered……

I recommend this bakery (patisserie) and am so pleased that I was able to finally experience one of Chef Keller’s fine eateries!

You Gotta Try This!
