Restaurants on Sugar High

Duff Goldman takes a cross-country trek to capture the sweet secrets and tasty techniques that keep the cookies from crumbling in the top bakeries around the nation. Duff visits a bevy of sweet spots ranging from diners and curbside snow-cone machines to food carts and boutique bakeries, getting a full view of what it takes to sweeten up any soiree. Duff highlights decadent desserts that are anything but ordinary, from chilled bread pudding on the Venice boardwalk in California and tableside s’mores in Dallas to Sno Ballz from the first-ever shaved-ice machine in New Orleans and a slice of apple strudel in Chicago. Duff also satisfies his sweet tooth with lemon ginger mousse at a hip Asian diner in Boston and traditional rice pudding at a dessert boutique in Philadelphia. This sugary search leaves mouths watering as Duff discovers the country’s best baked goods.
