7 Recipes From a Bakery So Good, It’s No. 4 on Our Hot 10 List This Year

Bon Appétit Logo By Sarah Jampel of Bon Appétit | Slide 1 of 8: Maybe it’s a sign of an excellent restaurant if you leave just a little frustrated, wondering why every offering—from the pastries to the sandwiches—is better than anything you could make at home. That’s never been more true than at Ochre Bakery in Detroit, where we contemplated how the scrambled eggs were so expertly seasoned, how the beet dip was so refreshing (can beet dip be refreshing?!), and how the pistachio cake—which happens to be vegan—was plusher and moister than any non-vegan pistachio cake we’d tasted before. Lucky for us, chef Jess Hicks gave us all of Ochre’s secrets. Okay, not all of them—but enough that we can make a selection of their very excellent menu right at home.
