After another gorgeous weekend in Seattle for Taste Washington, I have to wonder if it actually ever rains there. I have visited this fair city at least a dozen times without ever having seen so much as a drop. Is it a conspiracy to keep the rest of us out? As a counterattack on Seattle, I would like to wage my own conspiracy to kidnap Macrina Bakery—the whole damn place—and relocate it to Los Angeles. Then I could get fat on these multigrain raspberry muffins sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, to say nothing of a perfect pastrami sandwich smothered in melted fontina on a crusty Italian loaf. (Sorry, I gobbled it all before remembering to snap a photo.) Now pardon me while I walk over to my local bookstore to purchase a copy of Leslie Mackie’s Macrina Bakery and Café Cookbook so I can dream of recreating some semblance of these heavenly muffins at home.
