A couple days ago, we watched as several people casually milled about a small, unobtrusive pale green building in Yountville – waiting patiently – there was a sense of anticipation as the doors opened to the much loved Bouchon Bakery, which had been closed for a few months, under remodel.
The bakery offers stunning baked products – breads, brioche, croissants, French macarons, chocolate brownie bouchons, sandwiches, and other delicious items to their bakery clients and to Bouchon Restaurant (right next door) and Ad Hoc….all Chef Thomas Keller restaurants… The bakery plans to expand their catering…and potentially offer catered afternoon teas …which no doubt would be exciting and beautifully put together…look forward to seeing that in future trips.
Known also for their cappuccinos and coffee drinks, this is a happening place every morning. A great way to start one’s day.
Their French macarons are beautiful. They inspired me to include the French macaron cookie as one of Tea With Betty sweet recipes.
Wish we had a bakery like this near where we live…it’s nice having one to visit though….
