Handcrafted Peach Tarts for Summer

posted on July 11th, 2018 by Lauren Pepin

What’s your favorite summer memory? One of mine is sitting around munching on summer fruit at the beach or by the pool. I love cold fruit on a hot day. Summertime brings about some of the best fruit of the year; cherries, berries, mango, grapes, kiwi, and peaches. Of all the fruits available this season, peaches have to be one of the sweetest treats. The range of flavor from tart to sweet with the varying colors never ceases to amaze me. Is there a more perfect fruit to represent summer? We have 4” and 8” seasonal fruit tarts available all year long, but this summer we are stoked to bring you our 8” Fresh Peach Tart that’s made with the sweetness of both yellow and white peaches layered in a beautiful design you will be proud to serve. We take a vanilla cream filled buttery tart shell and top it with alternating super sweet white and yellow peach slices. We then use a light glaze to help keep the peaches from turning. The tart is gorgeous and will decorate any… Read More

The Cookie: Our Chef’s Special Creation

posted on April 9th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Have you ever indulged in The Cookie? We sure hope so. Some may say it's our name to fame. We can't entirely disagree. The Cookie truly is a chocolate chunk and walnut masterpiece. It comes directly from the hands of our amazingly talented French chef who tested out more recipes than he can even count...until it was finally, just right. To say Chef Christophe put tender, love, and care into the creation of The Cookie would be quite the understatement. And while he can whip up just about any fancy French pastry, The Cookie is one of his favorite recipes. Yes, it is just that good. And if you've had even a single bite of the buttery, soft, and chunky chocolate-y goodness, then you know. An all butter cookie containing more than 60% Belgian chocolate and toasted walnuts, we serve The Cookie warm all day at most of our stores. Enjoy it with some milk or a cup of hot coffee and enjoy every single decadent bite, Don't forget to snap a photo of it and post it to Instagram… Read More

1/2 Pies on Pi Day

posted on March 14th, 2017 by Lauren Murphy

March 14th is Pi Day and what better way to celebrate than $3 off our half pies! Our fruit pies are made with natural ingredients and premium fruit. The flaky crust encases large slices and whole pieces of fruit. You will find that our pies are bursting with flavor since there is more fruit than slurry, which is the thickener that suspends the fruit in the pie. We believe that more fruit makes for a better tasting pie, but you can be the final judge on that. Prices valid: March 14-17, 2017 Read More

Fall in Love with The Cookie

posted on November 8th, 2016 by Lauren Pepin

The Cookie is The Cookie to end all cookies. If you haven’t yet stopped by to try The Cookie you are missing out on one of the best products that we have to offer. The Cookie is an all butter cookie containing more than 60% Belgian chocolate and toasted walnuts. You will find it at most of our stores (Palm Desert and Rolling Hills coming soon) served warm all day; WARM ALL DAY! Did you read that? Warm all day, isn’t that amazing?! What goes better with warm cookies, besides a tall glass of milk?? Hot coffee does.  As the weather is cooling and we are starting to experience a season change (yay for sweaters and scarves) it would almost be sacrilegious not to indulge in warm cookies and coffee. In California we have to use all of our senses to experience the season so go ahead, and treat yourself. Not into coffee? We have tea and blended drinks as well. Just get yourself into the store; we know that you will find what you need to feel the Fall Read More

Charming Cranberry Brioche

posted on October 28th, 2016 by Lauren Pepin

Stop by our Bakery today and pick our very own Bristol Farms Cranberry Brioche. Brioche is enriched French bread, meaning that the dough contains a high proportion of milk, butter and eggs in it. Historically the French include Brioche as part of their Viennoiserie, which is a family of pastry that is eaten for breakfast. At Bristol Farms we are carrying many Brioche items that have gone beyond breakfast. We are so excited to offer our holiday inspired Cranberry Brioche Loaf to you right now. This loaf is loaded with cranberries and has a soft, dense buttery feel to it. It makes fantastic French toast and an even better turkey sandwich. I like it toasted with a little butter for breakfast. However you decide to use it we guarantee this will become a new favorite.   Read More
