A lonely Canele from Ken's Artisan Bakery
If you are lucky enough to live in Portland, Oregon you can get Caneles everyday at Ken's Artisan Bakery. I fought long and hard not to finish this last one but I couldn't bear how lonely it looked ! Ken's Bakery is a recent discovery of mine and his breads and pastries are soo wonderful they need to be shared with the Universe ! If you live in Portland you must make a trip there if you haven't already. And when you travel to Portland make sure you put this bakery at the top of your list . The Caneles are my favorite but close behind is his 1.5kg Blond Country Boule. Oh my gosh,we bought one the last two times we were in Portland and not only does it last us thru the week, it tastes just as wonderful as the first day we bought it. That fresh yeasty taste with a crunchy crispy brown crust. Yummy, check out his web site for more info: http://www.kensartisan.com/ . My next guilty pleasure when we make it back to Portland will be to try his pizza !
