The cornucopia of carbs served during last night's dessertfast left me wanting to make some kind of palette refresher meal for breakfast. Blood oranges are nearing the height of their season right now, while Cameo Apples are becoming more difficult to find now that spring is almost here. Moro variety blood oranges (featured above) are sweet, but I find their berry-tart undertones make up the bulk of their flavor. Cameo Apples have a delicious crisp texture, and are my favorite of the pomaceous varieties. Mixing these two fruits together with a small amount sharp cheese (e.g. Stilton cheese with cherries, Parmesan, or even goat) is a great way to revitalize and wake up your taste buds after eating some serious sweets the night before.
It’s called Serious Business Pastries because baking is serious stuff. It’s a science and an art form, and it demands a lot of care and attention. But baking also allows for a lot of fun and whimsy, too. They’re the veritable frosting and sprinkles on top of a delicious, well-made cupcake. If you try our pastries you’ll see that we’re serious about quality and craftsmanship, but fun and funky when it comes to flavors and creativity.
