“I love pecan pie, but wanted to do something a little bit different. I love the flavors of lots of different nuts; they cut the sweetness of the pie, as does the little bit of orange zest we use.”

"We are a farmers’ market bakery, so we’re always using fantastic fruit from the market, be it summer blueberries or midwinter persimmon. There’s always something really, really fun and we try to make something a little different with what’s in season. These change weekly depending on what’s at the market.”

“This is basically an ode to my obsession with salty and sweet. To me, salty and sweet is the absolute perfect breakfast and the absolute perfect dessert. My favorite way to eat bacon is dipped in maple syrup—that’s where this came from, my love for that.” Better get there early if you want to be sure to snag one, apparently these guys sell like hotcakes.

“These have become Huckleberry. They started out as little teeny cookies done for Rustic Canyon when I was the pastry chef. When we opened Huckleberry, we started doing these in a larger format. It’s become a huge obsession. They’ve been at weddings and baby showers. It’s amazing to see these become a part of people’s lives!”
