Buche De Noel- Upstate New York
Just moved from New York City to Rochester and need a bakery that makes Buche De Noel Cakes for Christmas. Anything in the upstate area (within 200 miles)?
You might also want to try the new "gourmet" grocery on Monroe Ave at Brighton town line (I think). It's called Max's. I went in there the other day, and it was a little sparse. But they do fly in their dough from Tribeca (as the lady told me). They might order something for you.
Other than that, though, Wegman's is probably a good bet. Or Phillip's European bakery (or whatever it is called...perhaps someone could help me with this).
Thanks for the answers. I use this post every year to find Buches.
Savoia tasted too much like Crisco.
Cheesy Eddie's was good but too much like chocolate cake.
Premier Pastry was good but I need to try again to give a definitive statement.
Looking to try Baker Street Bakery this year.
Also thinking of heading to Toronto for some great bakeries up there.
