Food Porn – I hope I don’t offend anyone with this term, but Breads Bakery in Union Square, is truly a Food Pornologist’s Dream Cafe. The baked goods, from this cafe and catering facility, are some of the best, I have ever eaten. And I’ve eaten a lot.
If you want to know where to get the BEST CHOCOLATE BABKA in NYC? Breads Bakery.
Is It Bakery Love or Lust?- As the dutiful daughter, of a babka scholar, I was well-trained in the eating of them.
When I fell in love with Daniel, my father had a whole new reason to live. He now had someone to teach, all about his favorite Jewish traditions and foods. Bagels and lox, matzoh ball soup, and of course, the chocolate babka. Daniel, was a very good student of Jewish food
Best. Chocolate. Babka. Ever.- I know this is an extreme statement, but all I could think of, when Daniel brought home his first chocolate babka from Breads Bakery, is how I wished my father were alive to enjoy this cake.
He would have been so excited to know Master Baker Uri Scheft was from Tel Aviv’s Lehamim Bakery, and would have kvelled over his pastry masterpieces.
Breads Bakery’s Chocolate Babka has risen to a new level…literally. A long and twisted loaf of moist, crispy, flaky, buttery and chocolate perfection.
More Is Better- Cereal bread, many flavors of hamentachen, foccacia, hot chocolate, chocolate croissants, olive stick, cheese stick, hummus…these are a few of our favorite things on the menu.
I was super excited to take part in a hands-on bread baking class, at Breads Bakery in Union Square.
The Proof Is In The Baking– For 4 hours, I had the chance to learn about kneading, braiding, proofing, rising, baking, resting and the importance of hand washing when baking.
Although the science was a little over my head, I caught on during the creative/decorating part of the class.
Food Porn Addict –There I’ve said it. “I’m an addict.”
I want to give a huge thanks to owner, Gadi Peleg, for luring Uri to the United States to share his baking knowledge and passion with us, and I hope they open more locations. The rest of the country shouldn’t be denied these pleasures!
