Dean & Deluca and Momofuku

I love living in the Netherlands, sure there are always things that could better (our politics right now are a good example...) But on a whole other level... I wish I wish we had these in Holland!

Dean and Deluca chocolate-dipped Granny Smith apples

Can't make it out to the orchard to pick your own apples? Drop in to a Dean and DeLuca, and they'll more than make up for it. The go-to shop for serious gourmands is offering tart and juicy Granny Smith apples dipped in all sorts of decadently delicious toppings, from dark Belgian chocolate to crispy crushed toffee bits.

Momofuku apple pie cake and cookie tin
The ever-expanding Momofuku empire (which now includes such award-winning restaurants as the Noodle Bar, Ssam Bar, Ko, Milk Bar, and Ma Peche), stewarded by superstar chef David Chang, has reinvented two dessert classics at Milk Bar—apple pie and cookies.

Says Milk Bar pastry chef Christina Tosi about her apple pie cake (shown at bottom left), made from apple compote, pie-crust crumbs, and pie dough-flavored frosting held together by brown butter cream cheese filling: "One of my first memories is my grandmother's apple pie after Thanksgiving—the browned crust, the soft apple filling, and the warmth of cinnamon. I wanted to create something that used the same flavors and textures and yet was entirely new. It's a lighthearted take on a classic holiday dessert."
