Holiday Gift Idea #2: Noe Valley Baking Co. Stollen
Oh, yes, we’re in the thick of it now. Here is something that will make things better: A big old slice of Noe Valley Baking Co.’s superlative stollen. Stollen, that yeasted sweet bread of German origin, studded with citron and raisins and gently perfumed with almond, is just the thing to perk you up. Buy a few now and throw them in your freezer, then toast and butter slices as needed all month long. Also worth noting: the $21 loaves make very lovely host/ess gifts.
Available at Noe Valley Baking Co., 4073 24th St., 415-550-1405
