Bouchon Bakery: The Real Thing!

Bouchon Bakery in Yountville

I apologize for being late with my April Bouchon Bakery Challenge recipe, Caramel Popcorn.  I was on vacation earlier this week and I thought I would have time to get it made before the trip, but it didn’t quite get done.  Soon though!

This post is about my vacation.  My parents offered to babysit for a few nights (thanks Mom & Dad!) so my husband and I took a much-needed vacation to the Napa Valley.  We had a lovely time relaxing, sipping wine, and of course eating!

Now, I couldn’t take a trip to the Napa Valley without heading into Yountville for a stop at Bouchon Bakery!  It was hard not to go crazy, but I ended up with three tasty treats.

Strawberry Croissant

The Strawberry Croissant may have been my favorite of the treats.  It was half a croissant filled with almond cream, covered with strawberries, and sprinkled with a streusel topping.  Yum!  I could eat one of those every day and be happy.

My other treats were chocolate-themed:

Chocolate Macaron and an Oh-Oh

The Chocolate Macaron was delicious, but I wish I had waited a while to eat it.  The filling was a little hard from being in the air-conditioned bakery.  An hour or so in the warm car would have made it perfect.

The last item I got was an Oh-Oh, the bakery’s take on a Hostess Ho Ho.  Oh, my it was good!  Sorry I didn’t get a more detailed picture of it, but rest assured it was tasty.

If you ever find yourself in the Napa Valley (or Las Vegas, New York City, or Beverly Hills) be sure to hit Bouchon Bakery!

This little guy really wanted to share with me!

We had another fun food-related experience on our trip that I hope to share with you in the next few days!

  1. How wonderful that you and your husband were able to get away for a few days, Karen. You look so happy in that photo. The strawberry croissant and macaron look delicious and the Oh-oh sounds so good! I have not made it to the Bouchon Bakery, but will have to make a point the next time we go to Napa Valley. I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Lucky you! I’ve eaten at Bouchon in Vegas, but I’d LOVE to go to Napa. That strawberry croissant sounds amazing!!!

  3. Hope you’re enjoying your time away! Those treats from Bouchon look amazing! Next time I’m in NY I will have to look them up!
