Finding Blueberry Heaven

At Tustin's Cream Pan bakery

Last week before shooting our October "Global Diner" feature, our photographer Priscilla Iezzi and I decided to take a detour--which ultimately made us late to the shoot--to admire the pastry counter at Tustin's Cream Pan bakery. As a food stylist for Orange Coast and lover of anything involving butter and pastries, I took it upon myself to try their blueberry croissant, and boy am I glad I did! Everyone knows you can’t beat owner Yoshinori Inada’s strawberry croissant, but this must-try, filled with sweet, juicy blueberries, is equally tantalizing. The perfect combination of buttery, flaky pastry, and melt-in-your-mouth custard, it’s simple and comforting, and every bite is blueberry heaven.
