Mmmm… Fruute tarts!
Take a look at this delectable bite of sweet delight. It’s the three berries tart from Fruute, a Los Angeles based patisserie which specializes in these tiny works of culinary art. The three berries features three perfect berries (looks like one black, one red raspberry and one yellow raspberry) nestled in Madagascar vanilla custard in a vanilla crust. Classic and sure to be a hit.
Of course, since their motto is ‘tarts unordinary’ one might expect them to have some slightly more… adventurous offerings. One would be correct in that assumption.
This is the wasabi. It combines wasabi (Japanese horseradish) and blood orange layered with vanilla frangipane and topped with a tempura mint leaf. Adventurous, yes, but it also sounds delicious.
They also do a selection of yummy sounding cookies. I particularly want to try the salted caramel shortbread.
What’s the downside to all of this? Well, there’s the fact that Fruute only delivers to addresses in Los Angeles. But if that’s where you are and you need some sweet things for your engagement party, bridesmaid’s luncheon/tea, or wedding reception, the tarts run from $2.50 – $3.00 a piece, are made from organic ingredients, and are delivered in green packaging.
As for me… well, I don’t live in LA or anywhere in the immediate area, so I can’t order them. I can, however, take inspiration from some of the flavors, shapes, and concepts when playing in my own kitchen.
