Wentworth & Fenn
Camp North End
After getting dinner at Leah and Louise, we stopped by here for some dessert. We sampled several things from their fall menu: caramel apple macaron, pumpkin ginger cheesecake, banana white chocolate bread pudding, and a salted caramel oatmeal cream pie. I had heard great things about the bread, so we also got a rosemary olive oil goat cheese foccacia. We really enjoyed all of the desserts (with the exception of the cheesecake which I wasn't a huge fan of). The bread pudding was my favorite. I absolutely loved the middle bite of the salted caramel oatmeal cream pie, but it made me wish the other bites had caramel too (it was only in the middle). I'm not a bread person, but the bread stood out the most. It was incredible. It had the best flavor and was coated in sea salt. The olive oil made it moist. We were going to save most of it for later and ended up finishing the whole load when we got home. If you haven't tried their bread, you really need to. I'm already wanting to go back for more.
I met Sam today at Uptown Flea in Charlotte. Sam was very welcoming and very kind. Her food looked amazing, everything from fresh breads, to pretzels to sweets like cookies and macaroons. I am not a big sweets person but the pretzel looked really good. I continued around the flea market but did end up going back and getting two lemon and lavender cookies and a rosemary and sea salt pretzel. And wow am I ever glad I went back. The cookies were flaky and soft, crumbling in delicious pieces, practically melting in my mouth. The lemon and lavender flavors were both there but there was nothing "soapy" about the cookie. Only buttery goodness. I then tried the pretzel and it was so good. The rosemary added a flavor I had never thought of with pretzel and I am pretty sure every pretzel I have from now on will be compared to this one. I will definitely be looking for them from now on at all of the markets in Charlotte. If you see the little camper then don't walk but RUN for it. You won't regret it.
Sam is awesome and very easy to work with. Her baked goods are delicious and we love having her to Hendrick Auto Mall to serve our employees and our customers! Thank you and we cant wait to see you again!
LOVE Wentworth & Fenn! Found out about them at a local market and the desserts are to die for! Their cakes are beautiful and cookies/desserts are 10/10! I would definitely recommend giving them a call for your next corporate event or wedding!
Wentworth and Fenn headed by Pastry Chef Sam isto die for. I used to go to her previous restaurant just for dessert. No one better in NC and having input on what to order now a days makes it better! Thanks for the amazing sweet treats, your talents are known and loved.
