YOU GOTTA EAT THIS

If you're a fan of butter, carbs, and French baked goods (oui!), then you'll want to get yourself to Le Marais Bakery (2066 Chestnut, SF. www.lemaraisbakery.com) in the Marina, stat. The options are a-plenty, from excellent croissants to pain au chocolate, but the Volcan (French for volcano, natch) is a strong choice for those who are more savory-inclined. The light and flaky layers of dark golden pastry artfully contain a creamy center — the lava! — of ricotta cheese, lardons made with Llano Seco pork, Parmesan, and ham There's also a vegetarian version. Boom.
