Adventures in Pastries
Sarah took me on a little adventure this morning. Really, it was more of a quest. Last week we discussed the need in our life for some delicious pastries. Nate and Sarah made some excellent eclairs a couple of weeks ago, probably the best I've ever had. Since then I've been wanting some other delicious French thing to come into my life.
We went to a bakery in Creve Cour, complete with an actual French baker. The most difficult decision was which of the many fine and beautiful things they offer would come home with me. I selected the raspberry tart (pictured) and a chocolate eclair. Nick and I shared them after dinner tonight. The tart tasted as good as it looked (quite a feat) and the eclair, while not topping Nate's creation, was very delicious.
