Bouchon Bakery Napa Valley | Yountville Macarons x Almond Croissant

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”13396″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]How can one visit San Francisco and not take a trip down to Napa Valley? Any how can one go to Napa Valley and not visit Yountville? Afterall, this is where Thomas Keller’s famous restaurant The French Laundry, Bouchon, Bouchon Bakery, and Ad Hoc are located. Each within steps of one another.

Napa Valley is a gorgeous place much like SummerlandOkanagan, BC. The autumn crisp air and changing colored leaves are dreamy. It makes having an almond croissant and a coffee outside on the patio that much more enjoyable![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”13398″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]Bouchon Bakery in Napa Valley Yountville is in the heart of California. This bakery started as a production facility to produce bread and pastries to Thomas Keller’s restaurants. It soon became a standalone French Style Bakery!

It produces some extraordinary confections: bread, baguettes, croissants, macarons, tarts, chocolate delicacies. I am seriously considering moving to Yountville![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”13400″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13380″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13383″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][divider line_type=”No Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”13382″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13380″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13390″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]Have a seat in the garden patio next to Bouchon after deciding on what tasty treat to indulge in.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”13386″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]Almond Croissant with almond cream: The croissant was super buttery and moist inside with many layers. It crunched and crackled with eat bite.

As Pierre Herme would have it, you “should hear the croissant suffer!” The almond cream had grainy bits. It is perfect for texture. The croissant was semi-sweet and was incredibly fragrant! I will have to get more for the road trip home![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”13387″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]Macarons: Pistachio (left) and Lemon (right). These giant medallion sized macarons were much bigger than ones you would find at Ladurée, Thierry or any Thomas Haas. Not only were these twice the size, the skin was still smooth and cracked like an egg shell. The lemon was my favorite! Made with lemon curd and filled with buttercream. It has a bright, sweet-tart finishing.  No artificial flavoring. The Pistachio was more subtle yet equally fragrant.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”13391″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]When you are done your afternoon tea / coffee break, hop over to Bouchon. Or stroll down beautiful Washington St to visit The French Laundry.

Remember, There is a 3 month wait. Making reservations on the Open Table is almost like winning the lottery! Good Luck![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”13392″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13393″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13394″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13395″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][vc_column_text]Bouchon Bakery
