Napa: Dessert!!

I promised you dessert didn't I? How rude of me to keep you waiting!

After a delicious lunch at Bistro Jeanty, we hopped down the block to Bouchon Bakery. Another of Thomas Keller's creations, Bouchon Bakery was started to compliment his restaurant, Bouchon. Thomas Keller is well known for the famous French Laundry in Yountville. Mr. Keller started Bouchon as a more casual, family style French bistro and Bouchon Bakery was first started to supply Bouchon with it's bread. It has since blossomed into a delectable patisserie with macarons, eclairs, and tarts. There are also cookies and chocolates. And if you want a quick picnic, there are soups and sandwiches for take-out.

I thought you would enjoy a peek!



I had a carmel macaron that was so big I had to save part of it for later. ( OK......Later being ten minutes.) Soooo good!
