Franck’s Angel Cafe

Franck’s Angel Cafe

Jul 9, 2016

Angel’s Cafe is located not far from Brighton High School in suburban Holladay, Utah.  I found it by chance, as it is off the somewhat beaten path in Ft. Union Blvd.  The front of the building appears as if it has gone through some changes over the years.  Although the restaurant is reported on Urbanspoon and other sites as being Franck’s Angel...

Passion Flour

Sep 19, 2015

Recently opened in Salt Lake City a few blocks West of Liberty Park is Passion Flour, a vegan inspired French Pastry  bistro.  They offer a little of everything from macarons to pain au chocolate to tarts.  They focus on purely vegan ingredients, and 100% non-gmo and 98% certified organic ingredients. I’m a big fan of French pastries like most people, and...

The food truck scene at my office building has been an interesting one.  I work at Old Mill in Holladay just off the I-215 exit to go up to the ski resorts.  We have 700+ people who work in our building everyday.  Across the parking lot there is an Overstock.com office building.  There are a few people who work at Overstock.com that schedule food trucks to come...

Who can take a sunrise Sprinkle it with dew cover it in choc’late and a miracle or two The Candy Man Oh the Candy Man can The Candy Man can ‘Cause he mixes it with love And makes the world taste good The lyrics even today generate an emotional response, I have goose bumps just thinking about it.  The famous scene from the original Willy Wonka and...

Tartine Bakery

Tartine Bakery

Mar 10, 2015

My first attempt to visit the Tartine Bakery a year ago ended in a miserable failure.  I had about 2 hours until my flight was leaving out of Oakland, and was desperate to find a parking spot outside the bakery.  After several loops around the surrounding roads, and time running out to make my flight, I had to scrap my plans and bail.  Attempt #2 was successful...

The Baking Hive

The Baking Hive

Feb 7, 2015

Walking into a new bakery for the first time is one of my favorite moments in life.  When I hear about one being opened, it doesn’t matter where I am, I stop what I’m doing and pay attention.  Just like the dog Doug in the movie “Up” when he detects a squirrel, so do I react with the thought of brownies, cake, or cookies.  That’s...

Main Street Kolaches

Main Street Kolaches

Feb 1, 2015

  It’s been a sad few years ever since the only place in Salt Lake to get kolaches closed down.  I’m really grateful to have now discovered a new place to get them.  Only problem for those living in Salt Lake City, is you will have driven an hour to get there.  It may just be worth the drive. For those that frequent the area for the camping...

Graeter’s Ice Cream

Graeter’s Ice Cream

Dec 1, 2014

I have good news and bad news.  The good news is I found some of the most unusual, creamy, and best tasting ice cream around.  The bad news is now it is virtually impossible for me to ever want to try anything else ever again.  Graeters has been making ice cream since 1870 using the french pot process .  It really is worth a read on how they make the stuff....

Chef and owner Charlie Perry was already cooking and baking up delicious locally sourced pastries and tapas at his Eva and Eva’s Bakery locations in downtown Salt Lake City.  Now he has added some additional firepower to Eva’s Bakery.  If you get the hankering for his cooking in the evening, you can now visit the bakery Tuesday through Saturday to...

During my recent trip to the Bay Area, I was really excited to try tons of great San Francisco food.  During our Hop On-and-Off bus tour the driver told us that in San Francisco there is one restaurant for every 40 people in the city.  The history of the city, the smells of Fisherman’s Wharf, I didn’t know what to expect.  I would have never guessed...
