The night featured chefs showing off dishes they made using Girl Scout cookies as a main ingredient. Competitors included Danny Angelopolus of Henrietta’s Table and Monica Glass of Clio. The night’s winner for best overall creation was Eunice Feller of Bread & Chocolate in Newton, who made cranberry citrus chutney with a choice of lemon coconut mousse or goat cheese and arugula.

45 Best Breakfast Joints - The Boston Globe Magazine

...Dark wooden farm tables convey a homey feel, and so does the new weekend brunch menu that’s available at the Newton Highlands location. Highlights include the buttery croque-madame and the French (bread) French toast, surprisingly tender despite its baguette origins. The omelets are packed full, and the thick bacon will melt in your mouth.

Newton Cream Pie - Newton TAB

...It’s been a busy year for Newton’s Bread & Chocolate. Bakery owners Eunice and Steve Feller not only opened a second store in Newton Highlands days after welcoming their son Dominic to the world, but they went head-to-head in a bake-off style competition with celebrity chef Bobby Flay for the Food Network show “Throwdown.” While Eunice called the opportunity “sheer dumb luck,” the food show chose Bread & Chocolate’s Boston Cream Pie, to feature on the nationally televised show, over more than a dozen other bakeries in the area. “It was craziness to have the opportunity.

...Keeping her eye on the pie. Eunice Feller, 43, a 2006 graduate of Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, will appear on “Throwdown! With Bobby Flay’’ on March 9, at 8:30 p.m. on the Food Network. The dueling dish: Boston cream pie. Feller has tweaked the state’s official dessert by infusing the custard with thyme and orange, then bathing the cake in a dark chocolate ganache. She and her husband, Steve, live in Newton, where they own and operate Bread & Chocolate Bakery Cafes in Newtonville and Newton Highlands. (more) - Peggy Hernandez

The Sweet Life

...One day after opening the Newton Highlands branch of their bakery/cafe ?Bread and Chocolate?, Eunice Feller and her husband had another dream come true: The son they had been awaiting for three years was ready to be adopted from Korea. But the road to this doubly blessed place in Eunice's life was not the one usually taken by chefs and bakery owners. As a college/graduate student in Sculpture and Painting in Southern ...

Obessesd with Kugelhopf

...We had a game-changing, life-altering, obsession-making experience with some kugelhopf over the weekend. It was at a fabulous bakery in Newton, Massachusetts called Bread and Chocolate, and now we might not be able to rest until we figure out a way to recreate it at home. Have you ever had this confection? Kugelhopf is a kind of cake that hails from the Alsace region of France ... (more) - Emma Christensen

Food Lover's Guide to Massachusetts

...Trained as an artist, then as a chef, Eunice Feller has a knack for making pastries as beautiful as they are tasty. She also manages just the right balance between fussy French pastry (little chocolate mousse) and down-home American baked goodies. (like her oaty peanut butter cookie laced with chocolate chips.) - Patricia Harris & David Lyon

Short Order - The Boston Globe

...Recently, an altogether different kind of corn muffin made its debut. Golden yellow mixed with kernels of corn and with a lightly crusted top, it features something unique: sage. Honey adds balance to the slight tang of the herb. The muffin is neither too sweet nor over-aerated. Feller hit upon the mix when tasting the batter with herbs, spices, and nuts. “I happened to have sage. I loved the warmth it added to the bun,“ she says. “When I tasted it, I said, eureka! This is it.“ The sage corn muffin ($1.85) is available every day. “I already know it has a following,“ says Feller. “People now come in looking for it.“ - Peggy Hernandez

Best of Boston Bakery West - Boston Magazine

With the steady proliferation of Whole Foods, Bruegger's, and Panera, there's no shortage of places to stock up on baked goods out west. Bread & Chocolate, a three-year-old independent outfit in Newtonville, rises above all that mass-produced stuff on the strength of such house-made offerings as fluffy Irish soda bread, pecan-studded sticky buns, glossy fruit tarts, whoopie pies, and gigantic coconut cupcakes filled with lemon curd. The coffee shop atmosphere here goes a long way, too - and the ultracreamy cappuccinos help wash down every last bit of those oh-so-crumbly raisin scones.

Valentine's Day - The Boston Globe

...if you're smart you saved some room for some desert. Head over to Bread and Chocolate in Newtonville. I am telling you now, you will not find a better bakery in Newton. For an old favorite, share the Chocolate Orange Mousse, which perfectly combines smooth chocolate with just a hint of fruit. You might want, however, to try owner Eunice Feller's special made-for-two Valentine's cupcake. - Ben Terris

Sweet Spots - The Boston Globe Magazine

An artist turned chef/owner of this cheerful and friendly neighborhood cafe, Eunice Feller re-creates the not-too-sweet but lushly rich hot chocolate she tasted while honeymooning in Italy. The result is fantastico. A small cupful, which is what you get, goes a long way. "We let the quality of the couverture chocolate do all the work", says Feller, who adds Callebaut/Belgian chocolate and a sprinkling of cinnamon to scalded milk and simmers the aromatic concoction until it becomes thick and frothy. Bottom line - Warm up the body and soul with this delizioso treat. - Carol Kort

Where are they now? - BostonNow

What advice would you give to students about their education either after high school or mid-career? - Education only works in conjunction with real life experience. Get into a professional kitchen as soon as possible and find out if the "lifestyle" of this industry suits the life you want to lead. Then watch, listen and ask lots of questions of your instructors, classmates and chefs -- some of the best lessons happen by osmosis.

The Tastiest Pies - The Improper Bostonian

There's the kind of banana cream pie you get from the Jell-O pudding box and the prefab Keebler Graham Cracker Crust. And then there's the real deal - you know, the one fashioned from a coating of bittersweet chocolate, banana slices nestled in gobs of fresh pastry cream, mousseline peaks and a crowning stratum of chocolate curls. At least that's the standard Eunice Feller sets at her charming Newtonville cafe, which is gearing up for Thanksgiving. "Most people have a holiday routine," she acknowledges, "and it's hard to break that and go to a new bakery." It won't be once you sample sweets from this case - which may show a few smudges here and there. "Kids come in and point to what they want in the case," Eunice explains, "so I judge a good day by how many fingerprints are on the glass." - Elizabeth Bomze

Girl's Guide to a City Life

I love chocolate, so it wasn't surprising that I would love this place. What is surprising is that I've found myself returning long after I'd written this review. This place is now on my regular list, and Eunice and her husband are embarrassingly aware of my chocolate addiction. Bread & Chocolate is the perfect little neighborhood bakery.

Bread & Chocolate - The Boston Globe

Eunice Feller knew she wanted to open her own business. But when she first contemplated life after working as a marketing executive for an art supply company, a bakery didn't spring to mind. "I wanted my own thing," she says, gesturing around Bread & Chocolate Bakery Cafe, its cases filled with cakes, muffins, cookies, and cupcakes. She just didn't know what. When her husband and partner, Steve Feller, suggested going to an open house at Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, she had to be persuaded. Once there, the light went on: "I had never done baking on a professional level," says Eunice. But with her art background, she thought, "Visually, I could do that."

Baked in Boston - edible Boston

Sweet Spots - The Boston Globe Magazine

A brand new culinary school grad is fashioning her own little bakery in Newtonville. Eunice Feller is opening BREAD & CHOCOLATE bakery cafe in a spot that Basil Tree catering had been using to sell take out. Feller was doing double duty while finishing up at Cambridge School of Culinary Arts as she worked to get refrigeration, ventilation and fire suppression installed in the space. The 38-year old former Californian hopes to bring her background in art, marketing, and retail to bear in her baking career. As for the food, she plans "European-style pastries" along with creative sandwiches and drinks. Feller got a surprise on graduation day - a Young Professional Award, giving by the prestigious Academie Brillat-Savarin - and she's already showing why. She's hiring two of her classmates to work in the shop, scheduled to open next month. "I told them it might be scarier than going to work for an establishes company, but that they would get to learn how to open their own business." Professional, indeed. - Joe Yonan
