I spent my first day and night in New York in Westchester with my parents, so nothing terribly exciting there. For my first city food, I went Italian for dinner, and then went with ice cream for dessert, despite the cold and rain.
When I went on the dessert tour in NYC back in May, it was based out of Manhattan only. On that trip, the only Brooklyn dessert place we made it to was the Brooklyn Farmacy. Of course that was delicious, but I was also introduced to another Brooklyn bakery on that trip, although in writing only.
There are many reasons that Laura and I are friends, but of course one of which is that we both enjoy baking. While staying in her apartment, I was handed three dessert cookbooks and told to read them. Of course I obliged, and I immediately wanted those books for my very own. Fortunately, my wonderful in-laws gifted me all three for my birthday!
We have now come to the final post about my food-heavy trip to New York!
Laura and I have been friends since college, where we baked many things together. In the summer of 2006, we made a cake that neither of us have ever forgotten – the cannoli cake.
We spent a lot of our New York vacation eating. Since this is a dessert blog, I won’t go into too much detail on lunches and dinners, but some things are too good not to mention. But outside of the dessert tour, here are the other goodies we ate!
