A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMAG0058Pop ups are HUGE these days, I think that it is great exposure for chefs and bakers who are just starting out. There has been a lot of buzz these days about Stephanie Cmar, the former No. 9 Park alum and Top Chef contestant. Cmar has held pop ups at Commonwealth, the Butcher Shop, Fairstead Kitchen and the Salty Pig to name a few.
IMAG0059Cmar has recently paired up with Trademark Tarts for the pop up events. Anxiously awaiting the pop up last Sunday (after having Mei Mei the night before at a private party) I was up early and in line at around 9:30am for the 10am opening. I would say that I was about 20th in line, and when the doors finally opened, the line was wrapped all the way around the block. It had started to drizzle a bit, and there was no cover, but I was committed to stay. While we were patiently waiting outside, Alex, the manager at Mei Mei came out with complimentary donut holes to sample. Mark, Bekka and their friend Mike were supposed to meet us there, but when I called at 9:45, they hadn’t even hopped on the T yet. By the time they would have arrived, the donuts would have been sold out! (They ended up selling out in under 30 minutes!!)
IMAG0063The line moved fairly quickly once the doors opened. People were busy deciding which ones they wanted…but how could you not get one of each?
IMAG0069Justin Burke-Samson is the brains behind Trademark Tarts. He was offering two flavors last week – above is the cherry limeade. Wasn’t sure what to think about it when I heard the flavor name, but one bite and I was in heaven. The crust was so flaky and light and the filling was sweet and delicious.
IMAG0070The birthday cake pop tart was also delicious, not sure which of the two I liked better…good thing I don’t have to choose 😉
IMAG0072The blueberry donut was as lovely to look at as it was to eat. It was super light and fluffy with a light blueberry glaze.
IMAG0073Our green tea donut was kissed by the blueberry donut in the bag, but maybe that made it even better. It was light and sweet, with a not to bold green tea icing that reminded us of a honey glazed donut.
IMAG0074The cookies and cream felt a bit naughty to be having for breakfast, but dip anything in crushed oreos and I’m in.
