The Fall Menu at Dominique Ansel Bakery
Dominique Ansel's Fall menu includes sweet treats such as the Gingerbread Pinecone, Apple Tart Tartin, Purple Plumberry Tart, Sweet Potato Mont Blanc and Lychee Coconut Pavlova. Before going there I had decided I wanted the Gingerbread Pinecone, but since it was a busy Saturday afternoon the pinecones were sold out so I went with the Purple Plumberry Tart instead and my boyfriend got the classic Mini Me cake.
The tart is topped with a Cassis-poached plum and consists of elderflower blackberry cream and concord grape gelee, with red currants. The elderflower blackberry cream was smooth and luscious with a delectable punchy taste and the plums were perfect. This tart was so flavorful and scrumptious, I probably ate it much faster than I should have. I remarked to my boyfriend that I could've eaten two right after finishing it. It was that good. I'll be back to try the Gingerbread Pinecone.
