You Bay Area Hounds have been very helpful thus far and I hope that I may lean on your expertise once again.
We have been invited to a BBQ at a friends' place in Los Altos and we have been assigned the task of bringing dessert. Thus, I'm looking for a good European (would French or Viennese be too much to ask?) bakery somewhere between where I am in Santana Row and Los Altos. I'm not opposed to driving a few miles out of the way for a good lead though.
It would be great if we could pick up a clafouti or fresh fruit tart or something along those lines. Something richer than that wouldn't be bad either, but I think the group that will be assembled at this dinner would probably prefer something fruity. I would like to avoid mousse-based desserts because I have a personal texture phobia of mousse that is too gelatinous.
Thanks in advance for your help!
