Go for the whole-grain breads, stay for the pastries

Backer Back 2011a.jpgWe dropped by Town & Country Village last Saturday and sampled some breads and pastries at the unique Bäcker Bäck Bakery. Three fat cherry strudels has just been pulled from the oven and wore a dusting of powdered sugar (pictured). Yes, they tasted as good as they looked, but we had to make sure - over and over...

Other fine pastries crowded the display case, along with 30 kinds of rustic whole-grain breads in traditional and wedge-shaped loaves. They're made in Germany and France from proprietary recipes and arrive partly baked and frozen, then are finished off at Bäcker Bäck ($1.89 to $4.59).

The bakery is going seasonal with fruit- and nut-studded stollen, marzipan, pannetone with cranberries and walnuts, and other treats. Our problem was getting past the cherry strudel.

T&C center is at Marconi and Fulton avenues. Call Bäcker Bäck at (916) 487-2225).
