This week, Serious Eats also posts my story about the new Crumble & Flake Patisserie. An excerpt:
Neil Robertson stepped outside his new Crumble & Flake Patisserie on its first Saturday morning of operation and was surprised to see a line snaking half a block long. With weekday Facebook postings announcing sell-outs in mere hours, weekend carbo-warriors have been getting to the bakery well before opening….But Robertson is humble about the attention on Crumble, and a bit saddened about the quick sell-outs. “I don’t want to be the Pastry Nazi, turning people away,” he told me, adding, “I just wanted to be a quiet little corner bakery where people can buy good pastries and desserts throughout the day.”
Pictured are the plain croissant and the amazing smoked paprika and cheddar croissant. Many more photos in the slideshow at the Serious Eats story, here.
