Winter holiday '08 Bakery Roundup

Atomica | Dec 12, 2008 06:46 PM

Inspired by the Thanksgiving Pie Roundup thread, I'm starting a winter holiday bakery special order roundup. I picked up a flyer today at Thorough Bread and Pastry. I'm guessing some people might be excited by Parisian macaroons! They don't usually sell them in the bakery. I noted the largest buche de Noel at Tartine that serves (I believe) 16 is a whopping $88. An 8-inch buche de Noel at Tartine is, um, I can't remember. In the $30's or $40's.
