Best Bakery in Northwest Bergen County (i.e. Ridgewood area)

In Rockland County on Route 202 (in Pomona...a quick trip from Bergen) is "A Taste of Distinction" amazing gourmet shop/caterer with a pastry chef beyond belief. Specialty cakes must be ordered in advance...but there are always homemade pastries, etc. in the showcase..the quality is unparalled...try'll be back again and again!!

Traditional Jewish Brisket Recipe [moved from General Chowhounding board]

This is a brisket recipe which will be your forever "go to" recipe.
Season both sides heavily with garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Poke holes with long tined fork for flavors to permeate meat. Wrap in plastic wrap overnight.
When ready to cook, saute 2-3 very large sliced or diced onions in some oil...when they are brown, push to the side and begin searing brisket...being careful not to burn spices...add a little more oil if necessary. Brown on both sides. THen pour in 1 cup of good red wine (use the wine you are drinking!) and 1 cup of beef broth. Cover tightly with heavy duty foil or lid and place in 325 degree oven for 21/2-3 hours, turning mid way. Add sliced mushrooms (I use a combination of wild mushrooms) last half hour, if desired. Cool, slice and's great!
