Every time a tourist enters one of Buddy Valastro‘s patisseries, a panda bear cub dies. For that reason (and for a more interesting and less TV-celebrity based experience), the next time you travel to NYC, visit the Burrow Pastry Shop, run by the amazing Ayako Kurokawa. Her creations are based on classic French recipes and developed with the Japanese and American influences she had growing up. Really beautiful.
