“Enjoying the silent majesty of a winter’s morn, the clean, cool chill of a B. Nektar Black Fang, the warm compliment of a gingerbread Liège waffle, and an ass- hole in his bathrobe emptying a chemical toilet into my sewer ... Shitter was full!” (National Lampoon’s Christ- mas Vacation) Brad Dahlhofer Co-Founder, B. Nektar Meadery Waffatopia, Gingerbread • $33+ Which is going to get you on the “nice” list? Gin- gerbread men or warm Liege waffles made with yeast-fermented, brioche-style pastry dough laced with gingerbread spice and caramelized bits of Bel- gian pearl sugar? Duh! These waffles need no top- pings, but they do look sweet with a sprinkle of pow- dered sugar. If you haven’t experienced Waffatopia, you need to get on that train! I won’t be happy until I’ve featured every Waffatopia flavor and the fact that the owners, Andrea and Brian Polizzi are so stinking nice should make you feel even better about supporting this small business.
