a saturday stroll to mercato foods & yann haute patisserie
my love affair with weekends continues and this time i'm merging two cuisines into one fantastic afternoon.
it's not often i make it downtown on a weekend afternoon but, today i carved out time to accomplish just that.
trolling down fourth street i headed to mercato foods @ 2224 4th st sw in search of fresh ingredients for tonights italian dinner feast.
fresh raditore pasta
bruschetta piccante | tomatoes, olive oil, jalapeño peppers, basil, garlic, salt, spices
chorizo & blistered cherry tomato raditore | red onion, garlic, olive oil, white wine, fresh herbs, parmesan cheese
of course no trip down fourth street is complete without a stop at yann haute patisserie located @ 329 23 ave sw where it's customary to pick up at least seven macarons, eating two immediately after you buy them.
next up: dinner prep
and maybe one more macaron....
