I hereby add happily to the heaps of praise given to San Francisco’s Tartine Bakery. It’s my favorite place to meet friends when I’m up north and I’m not ashamed to say that I usually go more than once (or twice) a weekend when I’m there. I love the mile-high quiche, which in this picture is stuffed with sweet corn and bacon—heavenly! Angus prefers the éclair, which has a rich and puddly vanilla crème—totally unlike the stiff pastry cream I remember from junior high French class. Check out their beautiful cookbook.
