sweet, flaky, creamy, rich- french pastries are the height of indulgence in a boulangeries, and at bouchon bakery we mirror the french style of making them and eating them- that is, often and with pleasure! tarts are one of the glories of the french kitchen for their simplicity and excellence. they require nothing more than a flavorful, dry crust and a delicious moist filling. the lemon tart and the chocolate tart are the two classics we love best.
viennoiserie is the name given to a category of baking that includes croissants, milk-bread doughs, and brioche (but not biscuits or sablés, for instance, which are in the category patisserie). many of these creations, such as the croissant, achieve their delicacy and lightness from a process called lamination: a dough is wrapped around a piece of butter and rolled out, folded and rolled out several times, a process that creates many hundreds of layers of butter between hundreds of layers of dough which puff when baked, resulting in of some of the most special items a bakery can produce.
whether you prefer chocolate chunk or oatmeal raisin or you opt for the nostalgia of our childhood favorites reinterpreted in the t.k.o. or nutter butter, let us satify your cookie craving with some of our most popular treats.
one of the glories of the patisserie is the macaron, a textural marvel, an extraordinary design, and an incomparably satisfying confection. this classic french pastry filled with rich buttercream has been adored for centuries. precise baking produces a cookie that has a light and crisp outside and a soft and chewy inside. these two textures are what make the macaron such a special confection. the flavors of our macarons change with the seasons.
we offer a variety of treats which you can enjoy for breakfast or any other time of the day. our muffins are fluffy with a light texture, resembling a cross between a soft bread and a cake. our scones are quick breads that come in both savory and sweet flavors. chocolate bouchons are small brownie-like moist treats, named for their shape, which resembles a cork. we bake them with chocolate chips in the batter and dust them with confectioner's sugar.
bouchon bakery rejoices in confections and chocolate in its many forms and we offer hand-crafted items such as toffee, peanut butter cups and boxes chocolates as well as special seasonal items.
what distinguishes a quiche made in the french culinary tradition is the crust. while some think of it only as a vessel to faithfully carry the ingredients to the table, for us it is so much more - an anchor that holds the presentation together both literally and figuratively, creating a thoroughly luxurious experience.
the french version of fast food- delicious ingredients between excellent bread. this is the way to do it. our sandwiches are both traditional, with some dry-cured ham, emmenthaler and sweet butter, for example, and also playful, such as a cashew nut butter and apricot jam (our take on peanut butter and jelly).
bouchon bakery takes its savory cues from bouchon bistro, with delicious soups we make every day and salads that are crisp and bright. taste the bibb lettuce salad and you'll experience how satisfying "simple" salad can be.
don't leave us empty handed. bring home some chocolate bouchons or shortbreads to have with your coffee or tea tomorrow, or our granola for breakfast. even better, if you're on your way to meet a friend, bring them some caramel kettle popcorn and they'll love you for it!
some people wish for their pets to take as much pleasure in food as they do. for these guests, we offer dog biscuits enriched with foie gras and chicken stock, treats for your best friend that are as decadent and delicious as the treats you can get for yourself.
