Last year I'd posted that Jerome's in Carmel Valley was well-stocked with flour and other provisions that were in short supply elsewhere. https://www.chowhound.com/post/carmel... And previously I'd shared my friend's rave for the housebaked croissants too. https://www.chowhound.com/post/carmel...
Recently i've enjoyed some of the offerings from here. Friends invited me over for a casual dinner at home, featuring dry aged New York steaks from Jerome's. Apparently the butcher shop has its own aging program. Grilled bare and then served with a dab of gorgonzola cheese, these rang with concentrated beefiness.
The famed baked goods are usually sold out by the time I can get in. They're displayed on top of the butcher case. But I did manage to catch the last of the oreillettes aux abricots aka abricotines or apricot pastries made with laminated buttery croissant dough and filled with dense pastry cream topped with apricot halves and a dusting of confectioners sugar. Not only wonderful, but also a bargain at $3.
Oh, and outside is a display rack with a multitude of different flours and other baking supplies. Jerome's also stocks many locally made products, including Ad Astra bread from the Seaside bakery.
