Sugar Bowl Bakery Madeleines Inspire A Twist On Summer Shortcake

in Food/Food & Drinks

If you are a lover of French Madeleines, you may know Sugar Bowl Bakery. Sugar Bowl bakes five-million madeleines a day in their California and Georgia facilities, and ships them across the USA. I love the classic vanilla recipe with just a hint of lemon flavor.

But if you like flavors, they also make seasonal variations like pumpkin spice in the fall and lemon in the spring and the exotic summer guava madeleines.

Guava may sound like an unusual flavor choice but if you know the family behind Sugar Bowl Bakery, it makes sense. As Kevin Ly, pastry chef and director of research and development told me, “they have always been about quality ingredients, consistency and listening to both their wholesale and retail customers.” Their Pacific Northwest customers asked them to create a guava flavor because it has become so popular, and they worked it into their seasonal/summer madeleine line.

The California Chefs Showcasing the Diversity of Native American Cuisine

in Food/Food & Drinks

BISON MEATBALLS BATHED IN BLUEBERRY sauce. Roasted fiddlehead ferns. Acorn crêpes topped with maple cream. These are just a few examples of what Indigenous chefs are serving at restaurants across California. Three spots in particular are dedicated to championing Native foods and culture in the state. Their chefs cite the same formative experience: growing up wondering why every other culture had a restaurant featuring its cuisine, but seeing none that reflected their own Native foodways.

Cafe Ohlone, the first Indigenous restaurant in California, opened in 2018 on the back patio of a Berkeley bookstore. Founders Vincent Medina and Louis Trevino rooted their restaurant in the cuisine and traditions of their Ohlone people and their ancestral homeland of Northern California. But despite accolades for their meals of locally gathered ingredients, the pandemic forced the closure of their cozy pop-up spot in 2020.
