Just Crumbs. It's not just her shop's name, but what gets left behind after a crowd gets ahold of Gabriela Perez's baked goods. It happens even if the treat was created by mistake. In fact, at a Taste of 630 event, Perez was making lemon pound cake with olive oil when the oven malfunctioned. On the fly, she turned her lemon pound cake into hundreds of lemon biscotti that she then topped with sliced strawberries and balsamic vinegar dressing. The crowd ate pretty much all of them.
At her shop in Downers Grove, Perez makes other treats people can't seem to get enough of, including cakes, cookies, and pastries. Desserts from various countries are available, including panna cotta, macarons, mandel bread, piñitas, Basque cake, and tres leches, a savory cake soaked in three milks.
