La Boulange’s Holiday Offerings

Need a last-minute hostess gift or sweet treat to end the feast for Thanksgiving?

La Boulange, with locations around the Bay Area, comes to the rescue with its double whammy of  holiday pumpkin and rum raisin macarons.

The classic French cookie sandwich is filled with your choice of pumpkin or rum raisin ganache. They’re $1.50 each.

For Christmas, La Boulange offers up the classic buche de Noel. The Christmas log-cake confection is rolled and filled with cream, topped with buttercream, then decorated with marzipan and meringue.

The edible yule log comes in two sizes: 6-inch ($23) and 12-inch ($35).

Maximum Mina Dinner For A Good Cause

That’s the appropriate name for the Nov. 27 dinner at RN74 in San Francisco, which will include a host of chefs from the Michael Mina restaurant group cooking up a five-course feast with wine pairings and a cocktail.

The “Maximum Mina” dinner will be created by Mina, wine director Rajat Parr, and Pastry Chef Lincoln Carson, as well as Ron Siegel of Michael Mina restaurant, Jason Berthold of RN74 and Omri Afalo of Bourbon Steak.

Dishes include sea urchin custard with smoked trout roe, Kona kampachi crudo and Prather Ranch lamb with kabocha squash, huckleberries and douglas fir.

Price is $200 per person. A portion of proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Reserve your spot here.

Kara’s Cupcakes November Treat

Through the end of November, Kara’s Cupcakes, with locations throughout the Bay Area, offers a Pumpkin Pie Cupcake in honor of Meals on Wheels, which provides meals to home-bound seniors.

The pumpkin cupcake is filled with homemade caramel, slathered with Italian meringue vanilla buttercream, then topped with a Meals on Wheels logo.

Twenty percent of each $3.25 cupcake sold will be donated to Meals on Wheels.
