New Bakery For Thanksgiving Pies

counter

Did you know there is a new “scratch” bakery in the Palos Verdes/South Bay area?  As the former President of Carlson’s Cookies, I appreciate bakeries that use only fresh natural ingredients and no mixes.  I am happy to have found Hermosa Pie & Cake Company just in time for Thanksgiving!

Last week, I tried their Blueberry Pie which had mounds of fresh blueberries – more than any pie I have ever eaten.  Their individual Fuji Apple Tart was more like a shortbread cookie with caramelized apple on top and was also delicious.

Hermosa Pie & Cake Co

Hermosa Pie & Cake Company is located at 133 Hermosa Avenue in Hermosa Beach; phone number is 310-374-2323.  Shop local and support a wonderful bakery which uses only the freshest ingredients!

Happy Fourth of July!

Afternoon Tea In Hermosa Beach

Afternoon Tea In Hermosa Beach

Afternoon Tea in Hermosa Beach

Last week, I attended an Afternoon Tea in Hermosa Beach in honor of our friend Lisa who was visiting from from Atlanta.  The attendees each brought a savory, sweet or scones and the hostess created an incredible table setting with vintage china, a tablecloth embroidered in Austria and fresh flowers. Our Afternoon Tea included wild blueberry & date/pecan scones (from L’Amande Bakery in Torrance), 3 different kinds of tea sandwiches, deviled eggs, stuffed peppers, nut cookies, lemon tea cookies, cheese crackers, fresh fruit, a plate of petite desserts, homemade lemon curd, plum jam, devonshire cream and Irish butter.   Afterwards, we sat out in the garden and enjoyed more tea and conversation.

Hermosa Beach Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is such a relaxing tradition and fairly easy to set up when you have a few friends willing to bring a dish to share.  The hostess provides the setting and usually the tea.  The guests can bring their own tea cup and it makes for an interesting discussion to learn the story behind each cup.  This Afternoon Tea was extraordinary with the hostess also providing savory & sweet biscuits and fresh fruit from the Hermosa Beach Farmer’s Market.  Another enjoyable afternoon that felt like a mini vacation!

Happy Fourth Of July!
