Yesterday I had to pick up a little birthday present for a friend. I was trying to find something really but not over-the-top. I wanted something that was a special treat. I’m not much into presents… I’m more into experiences.
I remembered the new bakery that opened 50 yards from my house on Capital Heights. On her opening day, I was her third customer and purchased some wonderful macaroons. The owner is a trained pastry chef- this is no coffee shop- it’s a real bonifide bakery. I stopped and bought a box of treats that Lisa said was fabulous. She mentioned the macaroons too.
Our office had a pot luck lunch today, so I ordered a chocolate pie. It was pricey, but I was told it was “to die for”. So I picked it up this morning. It was the best chocolate pie I’ve ever had. Luckily, there was a piece left over, and I’ll get to have another piece tomorrow.
So what I love today about Baton Rouge is the Tredici Bakery in my neighborhood. I have a feeling lots of people in my social circle will be getting yummy “experiences” whipped up in that little specialty kitchen.
