Holiday Hacks: Outsource the dessert

Friday, November 10th, 2017

11317_pies

 

Host smarter, not harder. Dessert is one of the easiest things to outsource for the holidays.

Pick up favorites like pecan pie from Sugaree Baking Co., or opt for classics reimagined by the elaborate French pastry wizards at Nathaniel Reid Bakery (like the ones pictured here).

If you’re on the fence of the great pie-cake debate, have it all with the Pake from La Patisserie Chouquette, a cake/pie hybrid that layers toasted buttercream between eggnog cheesecake, spice cake, pumpkin pie and bourbon-pecan pie.

Eat This: Turkey Sandwich at Nathaniel Reid Bakery

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

eatthis_mar17

 

Trust acclaimed pastry chef Nathaniel Reid to elevate the humble turkey sandwich far beyond a workaday lunch. His flaky, buttery croissant is sturdy enough to support slices of smoked turkey breast, a slice or two of havarti and a creamy swath of mayonnaise and mustard. We’ll never brown-bag a sad turkey sammie again.

Budget Crunch: 6 delicious deals to try now

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Got $10 and a friend? Then contributor Holly Fann has six delicious deals you need to devour this month.

1. The burger at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Clayton is a glorious, meaty, satisfying sammy. Usually priced at $16, the restaurant offers its massive 10-ounce burger with seasoned house-made chips for $10 Thursdays in the bar – a perfect opportunity to indulge in some of the city’s best beef at a budget-friendly price.

2. There are still a few more days to enjoy Anheuser-Busch annual holiday lights display through Dec. 30. After you stroll through the self-guided tour, head to the Biergarten where guests 21 and older can enjoy five 5-ounce samples of A-B beers and ciders. Food stations offer hot snacks; opt for $2.50 s’mores kits ready for the nearby fire pits.

3. Sriracha Granada is a glorious green, locally made hot sauce popping up all over city. With a touch more heat and slightly sweeter than the red Sriracha we are all familiar with, this sauce is delicious on anything from eggs to burgers to pho. Bottles sell for around $6 local shops including Edibles & Essentials and Fields Foods.

4. New to Laclede’s Landing, The Roaring Twenties fills you up on Tuesdays with a Two Dog Tuesday special: two of their loaded hot dogs or sausages, fries and a drink for $10. Try the heart stopping Cuckoo Dog, a beer-battered, deep-fried dog with beer-battered bacon, jack cheese sauce, caramelized onions and mustard, and pair it with the healthier Russo Dog, a veggie dog with cucumbers, tomato, red onions and basil relish.

5. The complex Spiced Caramel Spread sold at the Nathaniel Reid Bakery in Kirkwood is pure velvety caramel flavor. Reid suggested pairing it with fresh fruit, on ice cream, drizzled on pies and tarts or even in savory preparations like on a roast pork or duck breast. For $8.50, you may also enjoy a spoonful of it straight from the jar.

6. The $10 khao soi at Fork & Stix is the perfect remedy for wintertime woes. A gorgeous bowl is filled with a curry broth, egg noodles, red onions, crispy noodles and addictive pickled mustard greens and is perfect to cure what ails you.

Hit List: 3 new places you must try this September

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

1. Nathaniel Reid Bakery: 11243 Manchester Road, Kirkwood, 314.858.1019, Facebook: Nathaniel Reid Bakery

Pastry chef Nathaniel Reid has won international accolades for his sweet treats, but it wasn’t until August that he opened his own shop serving sweet and savory breakfast pastries, sandwiches, colorful tarts and cakes. Start your day off right with a sweet almond croissant, or grab a sandwich for lunch, like the roasted turkey with havarti cheese on a flaky plain croissant. For dessert, treat yourself to The Jarmo, pistachio cake topped with dollops of house-made pistachio cream and fresh berries, or The Amber, a dome of buttery mousse draped in caramel and ringed with pecans.

2. Twisted Tree Steakhouse10701 Watson Road, Sunset Hills, 314.394.3366, twistedtreesteakhouse.com

Starters are standouts at Twisted Tree. Try the onion rings, which have a crackling crust that clings to the onions with each bite. Crab rangoon seems out of place on a steakhouse menu, but was piping hot, oozing with cream cheese filling and served with two dipping sauces: apricot sweet-and-sour and zingy mustard. Salads are served family-style with sides of crumbled feta, freshly fried croutons and a trio of dressings (the onion-y, slightly sweet house vinaigrette was the winner). Don’t miss the luscious, tender prime rib; get it with a side of mac and cheese, where al dente noodles are swathed in a sharp white cheddar sauce and topped with crispy breadcrumbs. Don’t skip the house-made desserts. A giant slice of almond-y white wedding cake slathered with white buttercream came with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Get the cheesecake (which has a sugar cookie crust) with the fresh, bright strawberry sauce.

3. Coma Coffee Roasters: 1034 S. Brentwood Blvd., Richmond Heights, 314.250.1042, comacoffee.com

Coma Coffee Roasters is waking up Richmond Heights. Espresso-based classics are available, but its lightly roasted drip option will please palates with no sugar or milk required. Iced coffee fans will dig the 18-hour cold brew, a deep, rich sipper perfect for tackling the 3 p.m. slump. Enjoy the last days of summer with the Coma affogato – espresso poured over Serendipity bourbon ice cream – or go tart with Lyfe, where a shot of bitter espresso mingles with pomegranate juice over ice in this earthy, balanced treat.

First Look: Nathaniel Reid Bakery in Kirkwood

Monday, August 8th, 2016

NathanielReidBakery_08

 

Internationally renowned pastries are now available in Kirkwood. Pastry chefs and co-owners Nathaniel and Lee Lee Reid opened Nathaniel Reid Bakery at 11243 Manchester Road on Aug. 1, serving up sweet and savory breakfast pastries, sandwiches and colorful tarts and cakes.

Nathaniel Reid’s career is studded with accolades and stints in prestigious kitchens. Dessert Professional magazine named him one of the top 10 pastry chefs in America in 2012, and he received U.S. Pastry Chef of the Year at the 2010 Paris Gourmet Competition. Mostly recently, he served as pastry chef at The Ritz-Carlton in St. Louis, and he has crafted sweet confections at Joël Robuchon Restaurant at The Mansion at MGM Grand, as well as The Ritz-Carlton in Las Vegas.

Despite his successes in the fine dining and hotel industries, Reid said he’s always wanted to open a community bakery. “This was the goal since I started 15 years ago, to get to this position,” he said. Reid designed and constructed the 1,920-square-foot space from scratch, knocking down the wall between the former clothing store and neighboring office to create a small retail space and expansive pastry kitchen visible through a large window behind the counter.

That window showcases baking techniques of all kinds. Reid and the kitchen team create pastries from delicate laminated dough, fresh crusty baguettes for sandwiches, vibrant tarts and cakes, a rainbow of macarons and more. Patrons select from the day’s offerings on display in four pastry cases and can pair with a Kaldi’s coffee drink or tea. Nathaniel Reid Bakery is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Here’s a First Look at what to expect when you step inside Kirkwood’s newest bakery:
