Baker’s Day Off- San Francisco

Has the Baker had too many days off recently?

Forgive me, but with such beautiful mild summer weather, I can’t bear to keep myself in the kitchen.

With the spirit of summer under my wings, I took an overnight trip up to San Francisco to visit my darling sister.  She’s a bartender at Citizen Cake in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley.

Citizen Cake is a great place to get a unique dish without staring at your plate, wondering what the the hell happened.  It’s a creative and still approachable culinary experience.

Powdered Sugar Dusted Donut Balls are served warm with a fresh raspberry and sugar glaze dipping sauce.


An Omelette with Chick Peas, Fava Beans and Asparagus.   Tasted like a fresh from the garden breakfast.

Warm biscuits with scallions.  Hard to tell if they were sweet or savory.  The sweetness really came through and made these biscuits amazing.  Simple and delicious!

The view from my bar stool.

  1. As one who’s been slackin’ a bit on the blogging front lately, I say you’ve definitely not taken too many days off lately. Life’s short! I’m glad you’re out there enjoying it. We’ll wait patiently for your return whenever the spirit moves you to relax.

  2. Just wondering, did u take a course to be in this baking line?
    I’m rather curious…as i’m to enrol in a diploma in baking soon.

    You’re kinda like my idol now =X

  3. I’m dying to know what lens you used for the close up of the doughnuts. I think the Xsi and Xti can use the same lenses (?) and I’m looking around for a good macro lens, so I figured I’d ask the master!

  4. I just bought a truck load of asparagus from our farmers market today… brought it all home then wondered what I was going to do with it all. Hmmm… now you have my creative foodie juices flowing. An omelet sounds good. Fortunately, breakfast is right around the corner!
