Craftsman + Wolves Smokes CandyBy Tamara Palmer
February 4, 2014
Most of the focus at Craftsman and Wolves is on the eye-catching pastries displayed under glass, but there are some treats hiding along the cafe's back wall that deserve more attention, including bags of smoked almond brittle. The combination of buttery caramel crunch with smoked almonds and vanilla makes for candy so good that it's not long for this world. This week, C+W launches its online shop, so you can mail order our beloved brittle, along with some other hits like yuzu almond caramels and "damn fine" granola. There's also matcha milk jam and confiture au lait - both of which make unusual, yet delicious spreads for toast, waffles or a naked spoon.
