Sweet St. Petersburg

More recently, I argued that due to my health I left the high league on eating cakes, that you would never see my crazy sugar adventures and what happened a month ago? For five days in St. Petersburg, I completely forgot about the fate of all my relatives of diabetics and rushed to the grave! Ran from one cafe to another with such agility, as if this was my last chance to eat sweet. On the other hand, if my will was strong and the spirit was adamant, you would not see this review of Petersburg desserts. So, long live sugar, a substance that gives me sweet themes!

What do you need to know about Peter first? The cultural capital, the Hermitage-Hermitage, many people forget about the main thing. St. Petersburg is a city of advanced pyshechnoy culture! We will not again delve into the linguistic disputes, for me as a former Rigan, the donuts always remained donuts, and not some Moscow donuts there. Peter brings down on you an incredible pyshechnoe variety, in which you can easily get lost: nostalgic "Leningrad pyshki", modern "Petersburg Pyshki", gourmet "Pyshechka", foreign "StarDonuts",space in the thematic "April 12th". In the northern capital there are buns for every taste and color!

The most famous pyshechnaya of the city is on Bolshaya Konyushennaya, that's where I went. It is believed that the recipe and technology of making donuts does not change there for more than 50 years. It is curious that such a traditional place has its own instagram, full of wild pyshechnoy creativity. But in real life everything is creative, at the entrance you are met by such an announcement. Hanging up for a couple of seconds, he chose hall number one and was lost in memories.

Everything is authentic as in Soviet times, a cup of some sweet milk-coffee burda with blond hair floating inside (!) Instead of napkins - cut paper, somewhere a pyshechny keeper, a fat kotyar named “Ryzhik”, had to wander. The prices, in spite of several increases, are still encouraging, donut in powdered sugar - 14 rubles, coffee with milk from a bucket - 30. The taste of donuts did not let us down, really, like in childhood - total immersion!

He continued the theme in the Kokoko restaurant of advanced Russian cuisine. Here, the truth is no nostalgic puffy dive did not happen. Aristocratic white fish buns with mayonnaise sauce for 390 rubles, expensive, high-quality, unusual.

Actually, unusual desserts are the main feature of the place.I took a branded dish widely advertised on the Internet: "Favorite mother's flower" (550 rubles) and did not lose. Perhaps it was the most interesting and delicious cake eaten by me in St. Petersburg! The original delivery in the form of a broken chocolate pot was supplemented with an unusual sour cream mousse with nuts and halvah taste (this is how I defined it for myself). Although the waiter spoke in detail about all the ingredients, it’s not possible to remember all the ingredients until the last nut, and even pepper. I strongly advise!

A childhood friend took the Cameo creme brulee (350 rubles). Again, the appearance is outstanding - a real work of confectionery! The taste of the Cameo did not seem so special to me, the flower is more interesting. Maybe I just didn’t like the combination of panakota and brulee cream.

But the next multinational fusion came to the liking. In the Jewish bar "Bekitser" offer familiar to all "Napoleon" (180 rubles) made from matzoh (the very fresh flat cakes that the Jews ate when they were walking in the Egyptian desert with Moses for 40 years) It turned out to be a wonderful dish! Not as sugary-sweet as usual napoleon, the custard is almost not felt, plus the radically sour lingonberry-cranberry jam turned out to be quite a topic.You do not expect to meet in the pub an original pastry recipe, so if you decide to dilute authentic Israeli alcoholic cocktails with a dessert, you will surely not regret it!

Bar "Sandwich" is also not one of those places where they go to eat sweet. Nevertheless, there are unusual dishes, such as such "Shemyakinskaya sphere". They brought the perfect white ball, the waiter asked me if I would take pictures of the sphere before the breakdown. I braked a little, because I did not quite understand what was going to happen now.

The following happened - the sphere was broken and its contents were filled with vanilla sauce. Something like a small cooking show.

Inside the sphere of meringue (meringue) was a scoop of ice cream, it all floats in a hot vanilla sauce with sour dried cherries and roasted nuts, which for some reason were called smoked on the menu. A curious combination, but for my taste, the meringue is too sweet, it completely interrupts all other ingredients.

Not far from the Moscow station looked into the pastry shop of the factory "Cameo". I went there specifically to try "Teiglah", but after seeing a huge selection of all kinds of pies and pastries, I could not resist and ordered more cute pies with mushrooms and lightly salted herring.Have you ever eaten herring pie? I also did not eat, it turned out to be very tasty. The quality of products at the highest level, the freshest pastries, is no worse than in the favorite Tatar cooking "Bakhetle"! True and not cheaper, for 2 small cakes, a cup of coffee and a little teiglah paid about 500 rubles, not bad for a pastry shop.

But back to the main delicacy. Teiglah, a traditional Jewish sweetness, which is a pastry cooked in ginger-honey syrup for brushwood. This is if you do not go into details, in fact, everything is much more complicated. Classic teiglah, this is either honey balls, or a complex design, reminiscent of a Mobius strip wrapped, stuffed with nuts, poppy seeds, and the devil knows what. The St. Petersburg confectionery has gone its own way and offers a simplified version, i.e. something resembling a nutty chuck-chuck. Certainly quite edible, but to call this dish a real teiglah can only with a certain degree of imagination.

It was necessary to take a personalized cake, as if created in my honor.

It is impossible to talk about sweet Petersburg and not to mention the most famous cafe in the city, of course, the legendary pastry shop “North”.Rather, today it is no longer a patisserie on the Neva, and more than 60 branch offices scattered across Peter. As you can see, the assortment is solid, first of all the establishment is famous for its exclusive desserts. It was here in sovetskoee time created such popular pastries as the "North", "Aurora", "Leningrad", "Neva".

In the North, there is something to see and there is something to try! Why do not photographed poetically scandalous dish: "Pineapples in champagne", he ignored the extravagant song: "Earl ruins", and instead concentrated on this football kit.

In the next photo cake "North" (90 rubles) and the well-known "potato" (70 rubles), I think that both of these products do not require special description, only share his assessment. I didn’t like the chocolate-almond "North" at all. Unleavened creamy taste, yesterday biscuit, almond almost not felt and it was supposed to be a business card institution? Y-yes ... As far as I was disappointed with the brand dessert, I was just as surprised by the usual "Potato". Without any exaggeration, I declare that it was the best potato I have ever eaten! It would seem that,what a classic Soviet dessert might surprise, a simple condensed milk mixed with cocoa, but in the “North” they made a real chocolate masterpiece! Recommend.

We continue our walk through the special confectionery points. Above the famous shop of merchants Eliseevs, where the director's office used to be, now they have set up a restaurant of high gilding "Mezzanine". Here, everything is like in the best houses: copies of the Hermitage’s headsets, marble columns, crystal chandeliers, personalized dishes with monograms, bochato ... The prices are, of course, appropriate, but I can’t say that they hit me hard. The second dish is in the range from 1200 to 2200 rubles, the original desserts come at the same rate of 400 rubles, and at some station-kofe cafe-pastry shop I paid similar money, and here Mezzanine with molecular cuisine on gilded plates, with live music and service like descended from the books of Gilyarovsky!

Revising now the dessert menu of the Mezzanine, I saw there an unusual offer, namely, Ganache (cream) made of dark chocolate with icing of black mushrooms and pasta with cuttlefish ink and truffle oil. The question is why such a lover of exotic pastry like me,instead of chocolate with mushrooms and cuttlefish I ordered some kind of "Poseidon"? No, Poseidon was also not bad, how can there be a bad caramel-nut miracle with bitter chocolate mousse, praline, white chocolate and wafer crumbs? Paced was not bad at all, but it looked like everything on all 100, but still it was necessary to stop on pasta with cuttlefish.

Down below the Mezzanine, i.e. in Yeliseyevsky shop, terrible tourist kitsch reigns. Chocolates with tsar's vodka "Ilyich", presidential truffles with the look of himself, Dostoevsky's marshmallow, gingerbread with double-headed eagles, etc. etc.

However, in Eliseevsky there are quite classic cheesecakes and something tells me that they will not be bad!

Several years ago, at the initiative of the then St. Petersburg Marsh, they created the so-called: “Red Book of St. Petersburg places”, where, to my surprise, all the main points of this confectionery theme entered. Judge for yourself, the list includes: pyshechnaya on Bolshaya Konyushennaya, Cafe Sever, the Yeliseyevsky shop, a bookstore in the Singer house ... what, there was no bookstore yet? Now fix it. Of course, this is not about the books, but about the cafe "Singer", located on the second floor of the book. I think comments are unnecessary, the view from the windows of Singer already deserves to go there!

But there is also food and I dare to assure you, it is not so bad. In any case, their vanilla eclair (180 rubles) was not inferior to the best world eclair standards. You say a little expensive for a simple eclair. I do not agree, for such a view on the Kazan Cathedral the price is more or less divine.

For example, the prices for the famous "registered" eclairs in the museum cafe "Erarta" were even higher. True, I can’t say anything about their taste, because I went there to taste other Erart sweets, namely “artistic” desserts.

The fact is that the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art offers unique dishes based on the works that they exhibit. For example, such a "gala dessert" (raspberry cheesecake, a slice of coffee muffin, mango sauce, raspberry jam) was created in honor of the Salvador Dali exhibition at the museum. I do not know what kind of work by Dali served as the starting point for this confectionary work of art, but I dare to assure you, it tasted no worse than it looked! Issue price - 350 rubles.

Erarta is the only place where I could not resist and took an additive. Remains of common sense did not allow me to try more than two servings, so I had to make the most difficult choice.What to take, a unique cake of scarlet and sorrel "Cosmos 2.0", or an unusual rum-woman "Composition number 1"? As a result, I ordered "Composition number 7, Suprematism" because Before that I saw the original in the museum and roughly imagined what kind of avant-gardism awaits me.

From the very outset, the composition did not disappoint, the confectionery Malevich is at its best! The taste was a little disappointing, the mango cheesecake was hard, and the passion fruit mousse seemed not too tasty. In general, it was necessary to take the "Cosmos". On the website of the museum restaurant proudly hangs that, according to several editions, they offer the best desserts of St. Petersburg. I do not agree with the respected publications, in my opinion the dishes in Kokoko will be more interesting, but what the Erartava cakes do not take away, so this is artistry, in this respect really, nothing of the kind can be found in St. Petersburg!

In the cafe "L. Brik" I went to taste the incredibly beautiful "mirror" cake with grapefruit mousse that got into various Internet reviews. On the spot, it turned out that the desserts card was drastically changed and the mirror cake was no longer there. However, this trouble did not prevent at all.Cafe left a great impression. Cozy atmosphere, pleasant music, extremely polite staff, original paintings on the walls (which can be bought at exorbitant prices) and oddly enough the complete absence of visitors. Summer evening, quality food, downtown and nobody!

Well, yes, the prices in El Brik are rather big, author's desserts are like in Erarta, 350 rubles, but you get a completely original product! So what I chose. Look at the menu: "Cream mousse with pear, raspberry blancmange, wild berries, notes of lemon and bergamot."

We will understand, blemanzhe in translation from culinary show-off means jelly. That there were notes of bergamot, I don’t know, but light sourness was present, the promised berries were missing, but an unrealistically tasty pistachio cream appeared. In general, a very successful combination, delicate taste, unusual appearance, what can I say - great dessert!

Walking along the street street of Rubinstein, I could not ignore a promising establishment called “Happiness”, and what did I finally see? Slow service, incredible noise, inflated prices ... to be honest, not so I imagined happiness, but oh well.You ask, how is it easiest to compare prices in St. Petersburg cafes? And I will answer - it is enough to conduct an eclair test: "Metropol" - 420 rubles, "Erarta" - 200, "Singer" - 180, "Happiness" - 160, "El Brik" - 120 (sold with a set of 360 for 3) "Cameo" - 105, "North" - 70 rubles. As you see, “Happiness” is much more expensive than a not so cheap place as “North”. On the other hand, I can not say a single bad word about my order. What should I try in a cafe called "Happiness"? Of course, the dessert of the same name, although to be perfectly accurate, the "Hugge" is translated from Danish as a feeling of comfort. Here it means what - Danish happiness on a stick.

For 290 rubles, you will get lemon sponge cake (which you need to look for) malt ice cream in chocolate glaze (yum-yum) and a wrapper made of lightly toasted honey marshmallow (marshmallow) !

Do not think that I walked solely on pretentious cafes, where you will not find eclairs at two-digit prices. I had more democratic goals, only all these goals (except for one pyshechnaya) flew past! For example, the cafe "Frozen" with non-standard ice cream varieties closed. I never got to the cult establishment "Lost Sugar".I was going to try a sweet cheburechnuyu innovation in the network of restaurants "Brynza". The idea of ​​eating a cheburek strudel seemed to me so delusional that I could not resist it! In fact, the following happened, when he finally reached the "Brynza", it was so overwhelmed with glucose, fructose and other sucrose that the pastel strudel was no longer climbing. The situation was repeated in the dining room "Lunch Buffet" looked at their delicious raspberry marshmallow, looked-watched, but never took.

I was not even going to take fruit bouquets, but nobody would bother to study the assortment intently?

Confectionery "Troika" pleased with the original products. Okay, Smeshariki, it would be strange if in the city where they were painted they would not offer confectionery versions of these characters. But the cake "Gogol-Mogol", as a favorite egg drink from the times of childhood of our grandfathers and grandmothers, was able to be reborn as a dessert?

Against the background of Gogol-Mogol, the muhamm cake looks quite its usual.

In the Bureau of Sweet Architecture, in addition to the happy chocolate bus tickets, there are football candies.After much thought, who is better, Neymar or Jubinio, chose such a sweet couple.

In the restaurant "Northerner" decided to go to try the desserts made according to old recipes. But again in real life I was in for an unpleasant surprise. The eclairs with kvass cream declared on the Internet were absent as a class, just did not see in the menu authentic pastries Pushkin and Mayakovsky. I already thought of abandoning the northern sweet, as a waiter looking at my camera, suddenly declared: "Be sure to take sea buckthorn dessert, you will like it photographically." I had to take even 30 minutes to consider the decadent atmosphere of the "aristocratic" apartment.

Well, the waiter really did not cheat, the filing at the level! The so-called "Alder smoke", which came out of the glass, did not get into the frame, but the dessert also looks wonderful without smoke. What is inside? The first layer is a milk mousse (which I took for whipped cream) followed by sea buckthorn cream and completes the shortbread dough with two mini raspberries. Taste ... let's say, the view is much more interesting. Now I looked at the Northen menu for 2015, the year since “Sea Buckthorn Dessert” has risen in price by 40%, however.

In Northerner, my sugar adventures ended.Of course, in a few days I couldn’t go through all the most interesting "sweet" places of a multi-million city, but I hope that you have got a little idea about the pastry offers of St. Petersburg.
