Erin McKenna’s Bakery – New York

24 mars 2016 § 2 Commentaires

A bakery I wanted to go long before arriving in New York: it used to be called Babycakes, the name changed recently for the owner’s name. Unless you are being told, you will not be able to guess that the treats here are gluten free and vegan. It means that there are no eggs and dairy butter, ingredients commonly found in pastry.

This post is dedicated to one of my vegan friend who cannot eat macarons because they contain egg. Erin McKenna is a bakery that will finally please everyone!

I first tried their donuts because how a bakery does a donut says it all. And I was very impressed by Erin’s version. The Samoa and vanilla flavors are to die for. I wish I lived in the area for having them for breakfast. Erin McKenna Broome Street vegan Glutenfree bakery best sugarsheet

  Apart from donuts, Erin’s bakery is famous for cupcakes. If you like them as much as I love donuts, you will like this place.

  In case New York is too far for you but are impatient to taste her pastries, she has a cookbook with all the bakery’s recipes. The butter is replaced by Coconut oil, the flour is by Bob’s Red Mill. The ingredients have been carefully chosen by Erin and you will feel less guilty when eating a donut here!

48h in Vienna – Austria

5 janvier 2016 § 7 Commentaires

Opera and music amateurs will find their joy in Vienna as much as people like me who love visiting Kaffeehaus and eating tons of cake. And I did. 48h will be too short to explore the city, there are too much to eat and see.

  • Sachertorte at Demel & Hotel Sacher

Even if sweet delicacies do not excite you, you cannot miss out on the Sachertorte, a chocolate cake with apricot filling. If Hotel Sacher is well known for possessing the original recipe, Demel, the other pastry shop established since 1786, also proposes a delicious version of this cake. My personal preference goes to Demel, as I felt the taste to be more authentic and chocolate-y.

24h in Marrakech, Where to Eat and Shop – Morocco

20 décembre 2015 § 4 Commentaires

City of oranges, rugs, vibrant colors, I first discovered this city through the movie « The Man who knew too much » by Alfred Hitchcock where you can have a glimpse of the hustle-bustle of the souks and the mythic Jema El Fna place. Endless inspiration for many designers and artists, Marrakesh can also be tiring for those like me who do not like to bargain.Marrakesh Sugarsheet Spices Souk place des epices maroc morocco food vegan

Food is extremely generous: from sweet dates to citrus fruit, you have a variety of delicacies to excite your palate. Sweet tooth like me are in heaven: I had cornes de gazelle every day, and the best ones I had were from Amandine and Pâtisserie des princes. Dates and nougat ice cream can be found at Pâtisserie des princes for only 12 drh. Marrakech Sugarsheet Tajines Morocco Food Maroc Vegan Gluten FreeMarrakech Sugarsheet Travel pomegranate

For admiring the pink-orange shade sunset, go to the terrass of Café des Epices or Nomad, two restaurants owned by the same person as le Jardin. Menu at Café des Epices is quite simple with avocado sandwiches, while Nomad proposes tajines and couscous in a modern way. Their date pudding is worth the trip on its own. Gooey, spongy, sweet, it was the best dessert I had so far. I tried to bake my own date pudding back in France but I did not reach that perfect texture yet.

If you only had 24h: have breakfast at place Jema El Fna where the juice sellers will squeeze you the freshest orange-grapefruit, then stroll in the souks where your ability to bargain will be challenged. Gift ideas are abounding: babouches (pointy leather slippers), candles, cutlery and the sweet pastries made with almond and honey.. and so much more!Marrakesh Sugarsheet souk shopping morocco maroc Marrakesh Sugarsheet souk babouches shopping gift ideas morocco marocMarrakesh Sugarsheet Rugs morocco souk shopping

If you have a nice flight company, bring back a rug. They are so beautiful, I felt really bad leaving Marrakesh without one. If you do not like to bargain, go to Chabi-chic, a contemporary & cool gift store located on the first floor of the Nomad.Marrakesh Sugarsheet Olive souk medina shopping morocco marocMarrakesh Sugarsheet Travel babouche leather slipper loafer shopping morocco

Before sunset, go to my favorite Place des Epices where you will see women grinding henné, sip a mint tea like the Moroccans and enjoy the sunset.

In the hustle bustle of the souk, hides Le Jardin, a fusion moroccan restaurant with secret terrass. Tajines, burgers, couscous for food and avocado and dates milk for the drinks. The interior is designed by a parisian architect and all the vegetables come from their private garden. By night, le Jardin becomes a candle-lit heaven. Le jardin marrakech Sugarsheet Maroc avocado juice veganLe Jardin Marrakech Maroc morocco Sugarsheet tajine veganLe Jardin Marrakech Sugarsheet Maroc Medina Morocco interiorLe Jardin Marrakech Sugarsheet medina maroc morocco Marrakesh
