Sugar Rush: St. Patrick's Day Shortbread Cookies at Bouchon Bakery

Sugar Rush Max Falkowitz Post a comment

All too often, seasonal menu items are overwrought and underpowered, sent into the spotlight before the kitchen gets them really right, then shelved after a few weeks. So it's refreshing to see Bouchon Bakery take a more straightforward approach to St. Patrick's day with these butter cookies. More

10 Can't-Miss Autumn Sweets in NYC

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan 4 comments

If I had it my way, pumpkin, apple, pecan, and all those warming, autumn-inspired treats would appear on the menu of bakeries and sweet shops all year long. But since that isn't happening anytime soon, I'll take what I can get for the next few months. That means caramel-laced pumpkin scones, pecan tarts with a spicy gingerbread crust, cranberry and apple cobblers topped with chantilly cream, and pumpkin custards. And that's just the beginning.

Sugar Rush: Mint-Chocolate Cake at Bouchon Bakery

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan 1 comment

Six different layers in this Mint-Chocolate Cake ($6.95) from Bouchon Bakery, and I can't decide which I like best. Is it the mint-jelly and chocolate ganache quenelle that tops off the slice? Or maybe that pure white layer of vanilla bean mousse? It's hard competition when pitted against soft green mint mousse and a brownie-like chocolate cake. And don't forget about that layer of milk chocolate mousse! More

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan 3 comments

The holiday season brings with it all sorts of rich tastes and smells: eggnog and warm apple cider; the scent of baking cookies and gingerbread; cozy spices of cinnamon and nutmeg.

From housemade peppermint patties to candy cane ice cream, deciding where to start is the hardest part. Check our ten of our favorites. More

Sugar Rush: Sugar Pie at Bouchon Bakery

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

A fresh batch of brioche warm out of the oven is so good and simple on its own, it almost seems impossible to improve upon. But leave it to Bouchon Bakery to create the Sugar Pie—a brioche round topped with copious amounts of butter and sugar whipped together, then baked a bit longer. More

Kathy YL Chan 28 comments

When Robyn Lee first wrote about macarons in 2007, there were some, but not many macaron shops in New York; but fast forward to 2011 and they're all over the place. But which macarons are the best in the city? We tasted hundreds to find out. More

A Sandwich a Day: Smoked Salmon at Bouchon Bakery, Rockefeller Center

A Sandwich a Day Lauren Sloss Post a comment

The salmon was delicious, as was the sweet, buttery bread (of course). But I found myself wishing for more of the flavorful garnishes. Topped with cucumber, hard boiled egg, pickled red onions, and sauce gribiche, I happily would have traded sliced egg for more tangy, crunchy onions, and much more sauce More

Sugar Rush: Peanut Butter and Strawberry Parfaits at Bouchon Bakery

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Peanut Butter Parfaits ($7.25) are new to Bouchon Bakery and they're equal parts whimsy and indulgence. It's the fresh strawberry compote layered in at the very bottom and a trio of fresh strawberries at the top that tie this all together. More

The Best Baguette in New York

The Serious Eats Team 20 comments

In honor of Serious Eats Bakery Week, we set out to answer a question that's been on our mind for ages: what's the best baguette in New York? Because for every good baguette, there are dozens of disappointments. Tough, mouth-hurting crusts or doughy, spongy insides. A dried-out crumb or a flavor that's too sweet or too sour or just plain bland. We're tired of suffering bad bread—and wanted to find you the best in the city. More
