The most beautiful bread in all of Mactan comes out of the small bakery of Haruhay Dream Resort in Marigondon Beach Road, Cebu. European breads, mostly Austrian and German. All laced with the nectar of the Gods. Handmade every day, from scratch, quality ingredients imported from another continent. How can you go wrong?
Usually, the best part is eating the bread, but sometimes Lady Door favors me. Guess who got invited to help out in the boulangerie?
In this trip, I have done so many brilliant things, but spending a day inside this magical place is pretty special.
The shop is the size of a lunch box but they do everything important here: sourdoughs, pretzels, baguettes, cheese breads, apple strudels, on and on. Pure gold for the motherfucking hips.
I am beyond ecstatic. My heart implodes with happiness. See, I do bake but only sweets, which says a lot about me actually. But being here, surrounded with all these bread, all these live yeast, watching a master in action, making my first baguette, and just drowning in this delicious full-on sensory assault – I feel at one with the universe. Here I am. Exactly where I wanted to be.
