Tulie Bakery

• 27 February 2009
























After saying a tearful goodbye to my favorite local chocolaterie, Xocolat, I was ecstatic to discover a new bakery filled its old space. In case you haven't noticed, I do love a good bakery :) Tulie Bakery is a delightful place to linger thanks to the delicious food, natural light, and well-designed dining space. When I walked in and saw the same French bistro chairs & stools I have in my own home, I instantly felt a connection.

What is lovely about Tulie is that it fills a void here in Salt Lake. There really isn't another bakery that offers so many delicious-tasting and well-presented cakes, all made from scratch. You'll find decadent cakes full of chocolate ganache ("bette noir") as well as fruitier flavors like orange poppyseed. Given that idea behind Tulie Bakery began after owner Leslie Seggar couldn't find a good quality birthday cake for her son, it's only fitting to offer a grand selection of amazing cakes.

A few other things I also love are the Bran Muffins (I love bran muffins though...), any of her Quiches, the Coconut Cream Tart, and the Banana Cream tart. A funny thing about those tarts...so I sat down with Leslie for a few minutes during one of my recent visits. I mentioned to her that her tarts reminded me of my favorite bakery in San Francisco, Tartine. A glowing smile slowly emerged across her face and then she told me how she spent a short stint at Tartine learning their craft. She pretty much had me then and there. If I can have my own piece of Tartine Bakery here in Salt Lake, I am one happy girl.

I think the followup to our dessert class should be a Saturday afternoon visiting some of these fun hot spots in SLC! Emi

sounds divine! I'm treating myself to a pedicure tomorrow at Nailed, so I'll just have to make a little stop at Tulie too. I hear Banana Cream tart is fabulous after a pedicure. Now, only if the sun will stay out it will be a perfect day:)
