Per usual, all great pop-ups at Morningtide draw a crowd. I made sure I was in line at the start of the pop-up (it’s even better if you come earlier). Also per usual, I shopped Morningtide after I got my pop-up goods. 🙂
Mary Denham, the baker and visionary behind Blooms End, put together the most delicious array of savory and sweet creations for the day’s festivities. The menu was released the day before and I knew when I got to the front of the line I would order one of (almost) everything.
I ended up getting one of every croissant (minus one because she sold out of the chocolate croissants by the time I got to the front of the line), plus cookies (chocolate chip and white chocolate-marcona almond). Check out this croissant line up:
- croissant (plain)
- coffee-cardamom monkey
- meyer lemon-breakfast tea twist
- blackened date-graham-chocolate
- quince & manchego
- roasted carrot-hazelnut-feta
- broccoli rabe-white cheddar claw
- spinach & feta
- white bean & speck
- romanesco & cheddar mornay
- chorizo & manchego
There were lots of sweet treats, too – too many to try!
My bounty! Hubby and I had a taste test. I appreciated that half of the croissant selection was savory – you don’t see that too often. All of the croissants were flakey and soft, and Mary’s flavor combinations were so unique! My favorites were the white bean & speck and chorizo & manchego croissants.
Blooms End will be back at Morningtide this month and word on the street is that they hope to host Blooms End pop-ups each month, so I guess you know what I’ll be doing once a month for the foreseeable future.
