Hallloooo out there!
Whoaaa…it has definitely been a while, and I’m a gazillion posts behind. Now that I’m done testing and have caught up on some sleep, I’m ready to talk about some food. First up Bouchon Bakery!!! thecaffinatedbear, theseattlebear, and I stopped by before our brunch at Ad Hoc. It’s a sweet little Thomas Keller bakery that can get claustrophobic really quickly. But if it’s for tarts and cookies, I don’t mind a wait.
We started off with some cafe au laits and pear tart and oatmeal cookie for later. The cafe au lait was bomb. However, it was a little weird of how they make it. They leave out coffee dispensers and paper cups, so you fill the cup with the amount of coffee you want in it and bring it to the barista to steam your milk. A little awkward but worth the turtle.
mmmm…looking at these pictures is making me hungry. Anywho…I also tried the pear tart and oatmeal cookie. I thought it would be interesting to compare Thomas Keller’s oatmeal cookie to my own. (see previous post) It was more on the crispy side (which I like) but he uses more white sugar than I would prefer. Cookie round! (theyummybear-1 Thomas Keller-0) hahahahaa I hope he isn’t reading this.
Next is the pear tart. It was good but not great. I expected more from Tom Tom. Next time I want to try some of cream tarts and see if those are any better. Overall it was a fun and exciting to go to Bouchon Bakery but other than the coffee everything else seemed quite ordinary. Until next time…AD HOC!
