i finally got around to buying some books that i’d been meaning to get: the tartine bakery in san francisco is one of my favorite cafes, and their cookbook is amazing, and the photos are beautiful! i also had to get pia jane bijkerk‘s new book, made in paris. and to top it off, while reading i also enjoyed my favorite summer drink: hibiscus mint iced tea!
when i was in san francisco last, i was lucky enough to stumble upon these amazing chocolate bars! these rugged and handsome brothers, rick and michael mast have taken williamsburg by storm with their experimental chocolates. they pretty much do everything themselves in their lofty greenpoint warehouse and they use only certified organic cacao from co-op, fair labor farms in the dominican republic and the ocumare region of venezuela, which michael says produces the rarest and most valuable cacao. i also love the patterned paper they use and their beards!
found some goodies at cost plus world market today! i remember these from when i was a little kid.
