Food & Wine Magazine recently picked its top food and wine trends for 2012. The "Pastry of the Year" is the Kouignaman. It's a sweet trend that's been fueled in part by Romina Rasmussen and her Les Madeleines Bakery in Salt Lake City.
Pronounced kween aman, the editors said "this caramelized French pastry is having its moment."
They named Les Madeleines — as well as Starter Bakery in Oakland and Bouchon Bakery in Los Angeles — as the three best places to get this pastry adored for its crisp caramelized outer shell and buttery inside layers.
