I Don't "Do" Food Holidays, but...

I was recently lucky enough to take a little trip to sunny Santa Monica, California. It was positively beautiful and full of crazy good food.

But I'm sure you all know, I'm a sucker for a well crafted kouign amann. French butter cake. I'll do just about anything for some of that caramelized pastry goodness. Huckleberry makes the most delightful kouign amann dough. They use it for danish and for little cups topped with what seemed to be a reduced strawberry purée. Super tasty. I was actually sad when it was gone and I was picking up the crumbs from the to-go box with my index finger.

As someone who doesn't "do" food holidays, I would like to wish you a delicious National Kouign Amann Day on Wednesday, June 20th. I'm happy to take special orders of this sweet treat until tomorrow (Tuesday) at 3PM. Cheers!
