On a recent escape this dreary season, we headed up the Hudson River Valley to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. (We went to use their wonderful library.) An informative display of antique marzipan molds in Roth Hall was an unexpected treat.
Their Apple Pie Bakery Café is an ideal place for a lunch and an even batter place to buy bread and pastries. We brought home these sophisticated Danish, the kind of buttery creations you rarely see or taste anymore.
