Carissa’s Bakery in East Hampton

Bakery’s are having their day.  More bakeries are popping up in NYC and it is a huge bonus to see Carissa Waechter put down her roots in East Hampton.  Her baked goods from the sweets to the bread are delicious.  One thing is better than the next.

Carissa got out east 5 years and began to bake with the ingredients that were being grown at Amber Farms, owned and run by two female farmers.  Carissa had started her baking roots at Daniel Boulud, Eli Zabar and David Berke. Essentially, she is the real deal.

The cannales are just as good if not better than the many I have had in Paris over the years.

Sweet Potato Bread is innovative and soft.

Sourdough is crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside.

Sandwiches are available for lunch including iced teas.

Beautiful cakes.

Divine pies.

And a few tastes for the day.

The ovens are amazing.  She does all of this in less than 1000 square feet.

If you are on the east end of Long Island, get to Carissa’s.  It is a must.

    So good to eat. So bad for you! When I walk by a bakery like this I feel like that guy in Animal House with an angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. Looking at the photos I admire her talent and creativity!I started doing intermittent fasting. Working for me. Also read this about the food lobby:… You might find it interesting. Sort of common sense but the lobbyists and government officials really pulled the wool over our generation’s eyes on food.

      What are the details of your intermittent fasting? What results are you trying to achieve? I’m focusing on 12-14 hours between dinner and breakfast as start.

        I try to go 18 hours in between eating. It breaks down like this. If 8 are sleeping, and your last bite of food is 6PM-7PM, you go 18 before you eat again. If you quit at 6PM, you can eat again at noon, but your last meal must be done by 6PM that day. It compresses your eating window.I stay away from a lot of sugar and processed food. We cook at home a lot. I have lost around 15 lbs on it. Gonna lose around 10-20 more for sure.I weightlift, and do Iyengar Yoga as well. But, eventually we will all die anyway…maybe I should make a trip to this bakery.
