Editor's note: The Serious Eats editors spent the month of September jetting around the nation; here's a snapshot from our travels.
Before visiting Utah a few weeks ago, I can't say I had any preconceptions about Salt Lake City's bakery scene. But after a morning spent cruising the town for pastries, I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. Former Serious Eats intern Alison Herzog brought me by Tulie Bakery to sample all sorts of chocolate goodies, but it was the morning bun I fell hard for—flaky, tender croissant pastry spiraled around sugar, tasting gently but unmistakably of orange. Yes, we're on a bit of a morning bun kick at Serious Eats, but what's wrong with a national morning bun celebration?
