Pastry Case Showdown

Rachel Rex

Words by Emma Kopelowicz, Photos by Natalie Thibodeau

If you need a break from the dining hall’s dessert bar and want to feel super fancy for a hot second, then Tatte’s pastry case is the place for you. I promise that the extra bit of cash you’re about to drop on a stunning piece of pastry is absolutely worth it. Okay, I lied, because you’re actually about to buy two sweet masterpieces. Tatte just does not make it easy to choose! The berry cheesecake is light and whipped, unlike the typical dense cheesecakes you’d find at a diner (which are beautiful in their own right). If you’re looking for a dessert that is a bit on the heavier side, but not totally overwhelming, then this is the sweet for you. If you want something on the total opposite end of the spectrum, then look no further than the Passionfruit Krembo. I like to think of it as lemon meringue pie’s “tropical cousin.” The outer white chocolate coating is infused with passion fruit, so it has a nice tangy zing. The inside consists of fluffy meringue and the most glorious passion fruit curd I have ever tasted. The crust of this little guy is made out of shredded coconut, which gives this soft dessert some crunchy texture. The key is to get all three flavors into one bite for the perfect symphony of chocolate, passionfruit, and coconut. If you learn anything from this dessert experience, it’s that you don’t need to leave the city to go on a tropical vacation!

The Art of Butter

Bri Garrett

Words and Photos by Marissa Wu

I typed "French butter" into the search engines of two of my favorite, reputable food websites. I researched "types of French butter" in Google and Google.fr. There wasn’t much to find, and my mind raced anxiously as I stood in the tram, left arm weighed down by two jars of compote de pommes, one kilo of sucre en poudre, one liter of glace  de la vanille, an expensive flask of maple syrup from Cananda, and of course, the source of my anxiety: two packets of beurre doux à teneur réduite en M.G. (60%). Thoughts were running through my mind a mile a minute. What did I just buy? Was it going to mess with my first attempt at tarte aux pommes fines? It was a lot of butter -- 500 grams -- what if it was the wrong stuff? I don’t want to have to stumble around in France telling the lady at the caisse that I don’t want this butter.

Healthy Cereal Craze

Marilynne Cheng

Words by Liana Giangiulio

The struggle to find healthy, affordable cereals is real. Traditional sugary choices—Cap’n Crunch, Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs—are among the cheapest variety. Because of their high content in sugar, their nutritional values are rather closest to a dessert and far from being a substantial breakfast. However, while most people would prefer to add that extra health kick in the mornings, no one wants to break the bank or sacrifice flavor to do so. It is true—most healthy cereals are more expensive than the usual Fruit Loops. However, I am here to prove otherwise. There are some cheaper options that are equally delicious and will keep your pockets happy.

Scrumptious Summer: West Coast Açaí

Bri Garrett

Words by Josie Ouellette, Photos by Adrienne Sheh

During the summer, I had the opportunity to head to the suburbs of Los Angeles with my friend Adrienne, an adventure that involved lots of food and many beaches. One food that’s hard to find on the East Coast, but is plentiful on the West Coast, is the açaí bowl. Açaí bowls are made out of frozen açaí berries and are typically mixed with different combinations of fruits, then topped with honey, granola, and fruits of your choice. While there, I had the opportunity to have this delicious treat twice, and I must say my favorite was at Paradise Bowls in Hermosa Beach, California. The shop is no more than a five minute walk from the beach on a strip filled with local shops and restaurants.

Whether you plan on visiting for free through Birthright or traveling there on your own, Israel offers some breathtaking historical sights — and some mouth-watering food. I visited the country on a Birthright trip this summer, and although my time was limited to 10 days, I think I got a pretty good taste of the country.

Scrumptious Summer: A Guide to the Best of NYC

Bri Garrett

Words and Photos by Tiffany Yang-Tran

We set off to New York City for the weekend with a full itinerary that would make us very full. Our goal? To try as much food as possible. We had looked up “Best Food in NYC”, “50 Things You Must Eat in NYC Before You Die,” “Most Instagrammed Foods in NYC,” and more until we made a list of all that we wanted to eat. In order to try everything on our list we were going to have to have five stomachs and eat five desserts a day, but it was worth a shot. We were going to see if these popular gastronomical destinations were truly as amazing as people say.

Scrumptious Summer: Chronicles of a Slacking New Yorker

Bri Garrett

Words and Photos by Bri Garrett

I’ve lived in New York my whole life. But I’m embarrassed to admit that there’s a whole list of activities I’ve never done – and I’m talking places that top all of the NYC must-do lists. Luckily, I technically haven’t left New York yet, and it’s never too late to start exploring more of the one-of-a kind city. After all, it’s not going anywhere and neither am I.

Scrumptious Summer: Clash

Bri Garrett

Words and Photos by Marilynne Cheng

Globalization and urbanization are two words that are frequently used to characterize the generation we are living in now. They are synonymous with how we define “progress” and “innovation” as pioneers across all industries strive to create products and services to accommodate this fast-paced social, technological, and economic movement happening on a daily basis. In the meantime, consumers are also constantly looking for the newest, the fastest, and the trendiest.

Scrumptious Summer: Newfound San Fran Obsession

Bri Garrett

Words and Photos by Marissa Wu

“When the lights go down in the city, and the sun shines on the bay, I want to be there in my city.”

Journey really was onto something in 1978, but instead of (as they did) waxing poetry about the cityscape and lost relationships, I’ll be crooning about all of the food the city by the bay has to offer.

Scrumptious Summer: Portland, Maine is The City of Eating

Bri Garrett

Words and Photos by Michaela Mazure

So here’s the thing. I love desserts. If it’s got chocolate and sugar, I’m all about it. I also love to explore new places, so when I travel to a new city, my favorite thing to do is to check out all the different bakeries in the area. I find it to be a great way to interact with the locals, and also a way to travel beyond the beaten path to places I otherwise never would have encountered.

Ah Honey Honey

Jordan Rozenfeld

                                                              Words by: Jordan Rozenfeld

Although I usually write brunch reviews with the Trio, I ventured out on my own this past weekend. My mission: find Follow the Honey. As part of my Sustainable Energy Minor, I had the opportunity to take a Sustainable Development class in the College of Arts and Sciences. This semester I completed an independent project on the impact of bees on agriculture, which included researching topics such as the honey industry, as well as, sustainable food sourcing. This lead me to find Follow the Honey. This small business is located in Cambridge, MA extremely close to Harvard Square. Outside the store stands a beautifully written sign, describing the treasures that await inside; especially intriguing was the promise of local honey on tap.

Made in Madrid

“I came, I saw, I conquered.”

I could easily say these words about my time Spain, Madrid specifically. But the truth is, I’d be lying. Spain has way too much to offer. A whole year, let alone the 4 months that I studied abroad in the country, isn’t nearly enough to explore everything that this amazing place has to offer.

Learning from a Vegan Athlete

Amanda Barone

When people think of the diets of competitive athletes or weight lifters, they think of protein, usually in the form of red meat, grilled chicken, or whey protein shakes. However, protein comes in many more shapes and sizes than a piece of steak or a pork chop. In fact, many athletes choose not to eat animal products, and become vegetarians or vegans instead.
