Red Truck Bakery
News flash: Tiny Marshall, Va., has become a food destination. Have you been to the Whole Ox for a burger or Field & Main for anything? Paving the way was Red Truck Bakery, created by art-director-turned-entrepreneur Brian Noyes. My recipe for success here includes buying a cake (apple with maple glaze in autumn) or a pie. Like President Obama and Oprah, I’m a fan of the bourbon-laced sweet potato-pecan pie. Less pleasing are the big, overly sweet cookies, especially the birdseed cookie that takes its name a little too literally. All’s forgiven with cinnamon ice cream produced by Moo Thru in nearby Remington and swirled with Red Truck’s grade-A granola. Caution: One pint leads to another.
