May 2014 had been a busy month...of eating green stuff. Like most shops elsewhere that are coming up with green items (May is the month of "shin ryoku" aka New Green), Dean & Deluca has also come up with Green Bakery theme where all the baked items contained some green ingredients.
The first item that catches my eye is of course, the military green matcha scone drizzled sparingly with green tea icing sugar.
The first few bites were rather disenchanting as the taste was bland. But after a while, the bitterness starts to emanate and sings along with the dark chocolate. It's just as tasty as the chocolate scone during earlier visit.
The Giant Pistachio Roll looks too yummy to be missed. Similar to a cinnamon roll, the interior is slathered with filling of strawberry jam. The Pistachio cream was very concentrated in sweetness but proportionate to the thickness of the chunky plain brioche.

Peanut Butter and Jelly RollD and D's take on gheclassic American brown bag lunch (or breakfast) is so much than the pistachio because the interior is smeared with lots of unevenly grinded salted peanuts and peanut paste. Crunchy, salty and sweet, this is an all-round indulgent comfort food.
