Petit Dejuner @ King Arthur

Yesterday morning we escaped the housekeeper and headed to King Arthur Flour in Norwich --  where you can shop an extensive selection of fine ingredients, learn to bake the perfect baguette, or just sit & enjoy wonderful pastries with steaming hot coffee...

I poured a mug of Omar's Organic Blend (shade-grown & fair trade) and headed over to the case, where I ordered the prettiest morning pastry I could find. Although it was called almond danish, 'danish' seems too pedestrian a term for this creation. Its tender, light crust was more like a croissant, a delicious, not-too-sweet almond paste was wrapped within, and the entire flaky confection was topped with honey-glazed, toasted almond slivers.
