I got up early Saturday to go to Liguria Bakery for their Panatone to discover that they had sold out on Friday. That damn Grace Ann Walden had written about them in her column causing the swooping hordes (some of whom bought 10-15 panatones apiece!).
This morning I got up early and stood in line for 45 minutes at Bay Bread, luckily I got their last chocolate buche noel.
So my lesson for this year is if I decide not to bake, then I need to put in special orders early.
My question is, where do you go to get your Christmas goodies? Were Liguria and Bay Bread my best options?
