Pam, All cultures welcome :). I love hearing about different countries' specialties. Have you tried any authentic French bakeries in the US? I was just curious if they compare.

I enjoy reading all your answers; so much I don't know about diverse culinary choices. Thank you.

If I'm living large and calories don't count... I'm walking to one of my favorite Italian bakeries (Bova or Modern Pastry) and buying a lobster tail. The Italian name is Sfogliatelle.

A loaf of Westphalian style pumpernickel bread (ingredients: rye, water).

I don't like the North American version of "pumpernickel" (with molasses and coffee and sugar and what-all else to make it look like bread, but taste like cake). I really enjoy the stuff that can be legally labeled as Pumpernickel in Germany! I used to make my own home-style version occasionally, but it needs to bake for 24 hours and I don't really trust my cranky old oven to behave itself with an overnight bake anymore. Now, if I had a stone pizza oven outside where I could bake it properly emoticon

If it needs to be a "sweet" choice, then I'd have to go with the Pflaumenkuchen (German plum cake) made by a bakery in a small town just north of us. Their version is on a yeast base, more tart than sweet, and we make a trip there at least once per year just for this cake.

Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

"The Inuit Paradox" ( discovermagazine.com/2004/oct/inuit-
paradox
): "...there are no essential foods—only essential nutrients. And humans can get those nutrients from diverse and eye-opening sources. "

I think I want JERF's mocha Swiss roll! That sounds delicious.

If I stick with something local, I would go for the salted caramel cheesecake with pecan crust that is currently being served at the dinner theater where I work.

We live in Mennonite country and the local farmers market sells amazing Swiss rolls aka jelly roll. I’d get a giant piece of the mocha with whipped cream filling.

You walk into a bakery. You may pick any ONE item (any portion size you want) and for that moment, it contains no calories. What do you pick?
