We were in UP Town Center yesterday and dropped by the Open Kitchen event where celebrities sold their fare. We chanced upon the corner of The Bald Baker and tried some of his cookies.
During the event, we were able to try the Black Sesame Matchallow (Php 70) cookie. Its flavor is balanced; the matcha taste is not too strong or overpowering. The tea taste is tempered by the nuttiness of the sesame seeds and the subtle sweetness of the melted marshmallows.
After trying one cookie, we decided to buy two more variants. First is the Chocollow (Php 60) cookie: chocolate chip cookies topped with melted marshmallows. It has a nice and satisfying chocolate flavor. We like that the chocolate taste is not the usual milk chocolate kind for kids. The cookie itself is moist and crumbles well. We just wish that it had a tad more saltiness.
The second cookie we bought was the Compost Cookie (Php 65). According to The Bald Baker, this cookie has everything: chocolate chips, rice crispies, potato chips, butterscotch, pretzel, Graham cookie bits, marshmallows, and salted caramel. It doesn't taste bad. It is just that it is not as impressive as it sounds. Considering all the ingredients mentioned, the cookie tastes ordinary.
If you want to try The Bald Baker's cookies, then watch out for food fairs as he participates a lot in these events. If you want more info, look for him on Facebook and Instagram.
