It’s holiday time! Let Bakery Nouveau help you with your holiday planning, from dinner rolls, to center piece desserts, hostess gifts, and perhaps a decadent chocolate or two for yourself. We are taking orders from now until end of day, Friday, December 20th. While our crew will be working hard to provide a wide selection of bread, pastry and dessert on the 24th, we do encourage placing an order if you know exactly what you want.
We will be open Christmas Eve, and closed both Christmas Day, and December 26th. We will reopen for regular hours on the 27th. In addition, while we will be open on New Year’s Eve, we will be closed January 1st, New Year’s Day.
In addition to our regular selection of products, this holiday season we are featuring the following:
Bûche de Noël:
This year we have three variations of bûche de Noël. Each one will serve 8-10, and are also available by the slice. Besides being delicious, one of our bûche de Noël would serve as a fun and festive centerpiece dessert. $38/whole, $5.00/slice
Traditional: Biscuit (sponge cake), brushed with coffee simple syrup, and layered with 70% Chocolate mousse and coffee crème Madame, which is rolled around a center of cassis mousse. Finished with a coffee butter cream and decorated with chocolate bark and chocolate mushrooms to look like a stylized log.
Mrs. Claus: A layered cake with an almond crunch layer, lime chiffon, strawberry coulis (a thick jam, not quite as set as a pate de fruit, but close), and vanilla bavarois.
Santa’s S’more: A layered cake with a graham crunch, white chocolate mousse, milk chocolate mousse and a 70% dark chocolate mousse. It’s finished with a caramel glaze and house-made marshmallows.
Need to pick up cookies for the office party, or as a hostess gift? We’ve got you covered. From a selection of individual iced cookies, to our packaged cookie plates and boxes, you’ll be able to arrive at your party with some tasty treats in hand.
Cookie Plate: An assortment of our butter and sugar cookies along with some holiday-only varieties, such as gingerbread, Linzer, and biscotti, packaged on a decorative plate for $18.
Cookie Box: A larger assortment of our cookies packaged in a festive holiday tote-box for $28.
Decorated Cookies: Gingerbread men, flooded/iced sugar cookies in various holiday cut-outs.
Did you know that you can use our bread in your stuffing or dressing recipes? Simply cut the loaves you want to use into cubes, and either leave to dry overnight, or toast lightly at low temperatures. We’ve heard from customers that brioche and challah both work well, and also our pave au levain. In addition to these and other loaves, we have some special treats for the holidays:
Stollen: A traditional Christmas bread in Germany, Stollen is similar to brioche, with dried fruit (Zante currants, citrus peel, cranberries and dates), slivered almonds, and a center of almond butter mixed with marzipan. After baking, it is dipped in rum-butter, and coated in a layer of organic sugar and one of powdered sugar. It pairs very well with coffee or tea, so makes an excellent late morning snack. A loaf will easily serve 8-10, and costs $22. Slices are $4.50
Panettone: Our variation on this classic features chocolate and hazelnuts mixed into the dough. The baked loaves are dipped in chocolate before packaging, and topped with a variety of chocolate chips and hazelnut pieces. $16 for the large size, and $3.50 for the small.
Holiday Rolls: A brioche roll filled with dried cranberries, dates, and candied orange peel. They are topped with a streusel before baking, and then finished with a dusting of powdered sugar. Like Stollen, they are a good breakfast treat, or pair very well with coffee or tea for a late morning snack. $7/pack of 6.
Brioche Rolls: Our buttery, just barely sweet brioche - perfect as dinner rolls, or just warmed up and buttered. They also work great for small sandwiches. $6/pack of 6
Our range of handmade chocolate confections are indulgently delicious, whether as a small treat for yourself, or as a gift for a friend. Some of our specialties this year include:
Christmas Trees: A variety of 7” Christmas Trees made of chocolate. We toss crispy feuilltine with white, milk or dark chocolate, decorate them with sugar pearls, and add ‘presents’ of candy. $28
Holiday Bowl: Available in store only, these are hand-crafted blown glass bowls made by local glass artist, Melissa Misoda. They are filled with a variety of our candy. $48 (limited supply, cannot be pre-ordered).
