the closest i'll ever get
The Bouchon Bakery opened up last week, and of course I headed over immediately to snatch up some goodies. I don't have an extra $1,000 hanging around, so I can't go to Per Se any time soon, but these little tarts were pretty tasty. They will have to tide me over until I can go in for the real thing! They were pricey (around $7, I think), but really well-made. I was particulary impressed with the thinness of the crusts. It's not easy! (Crusts aren't really my thing.)
The tart on the left was an almond/apple "seasonal" selection; the one on the right was lemon, and marvelously tart. I'll be back!
