I’m hoping to find top-notch renditions of the following holiday treats. FWIW I’d be happy to go out of my way for a place that is truly special:
- Pfeffernüsse (German spiced cookies)
Trader Joe’s used to carry these during the holidays, but no longer.
- Stollen (German fruit bread)
This is available at Trader Joe’s and Berolina, but I’m wondering if there are any other spots which might carry this item.
- Melomakarona (Greek semolina and honey cookies)
I’ve only seen these at Papa Cristo’s, but they were a prepackaged version made off-site. I’m hoping to find a Greek bakery that makes a better version in-house.
- Gingerbread and other Christmas cookies
I’m aware that these are pretty widely available, but I’m wondering if there are any bakeries that are especially notable.
- German or Scandinavian mulled wine (Glühwein/Glögg)
I realize that these are available by the bottle at some liquor stores, but are there any places which serve them warm and by the cup for immediate consumption?
Holiday-themed caffeinated drinks
For example, gingerbread latte, eggnog latte, or peppermint latte.
For example, spiked eggnog or Hot Toddy.
Thanks in advance!
