Bouchon Bakery

Bouchon Bakery
Last Saturday a companion and I squeezed a trip up to Bouchon Bakery before the wedding, after all we were in Thomas Keller’s land and it would be ashamed if a hippo doesn’t go.
There was already a line out the door but it wasn’t that bad because the bakeshop is really tiny, and the register is literally five steps past the door. Stepping into Bouchon Bakery is like a kid entering a toy store; you want everything. I’ve never been so indecisive in my life! I took a bunch of photos to share my pain with you…

After deliberating for fifteen minutes, I purchased the chocolate bouchon, Nutter Butter, seasonal croissant, and cheddar bacon scone. Since the 17th Annual Taste of Yountville was happening on Washington Street, I prolonged the wait of eating my Bouchon Bakery goods.

I shared the cheddar bacon scone with a few girls when we returned to the hotel from the wedding, and oh my goodness it was amazing! The scone disappeared within five seconds. The cheddar and bacon were evenly distributed.

The Nutter Butter disappeared the next day. I shared it with several people at a wine tasting. They say that chocolate is better than…well let me just say the Nutter Butter has replaced chocolate!

I saved the seasonal croissant for today's breakfast after all breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It was delicious despite being two days old!

After the seasonal croissant I scarfed down the chocolate bouchon. It was dense like a brownie without the chewiness. Amazing.

After paying for my goodies, I found out that I could have paid $1 for the chocolate bouchon instead of $3 as Bouchon Bakery participated in the Annual Taste….it was hiding off the street…smart…argh.
TASTE OF YOUNTVILLE
I purchased a chocolate chip cookie that had a slight burnt taste, and from Bouchon Bistro they offered this beef salami/pate served on a toasted baguette.
TASTE OF YOUNTVILLE
I don’t think it was the Terrine de Foie Gras de Canard as that costs $48.50 for 5 oz. and the sampler was only for one ticket –$1. I wasn’t a fan of it; I don’t do slimy texture.
The Bouchon Bakery most certainly lived up to my expectations! I need to find out if Beverly Hills’ Bouchon offers the Nutter Butter…
