What's sweet, tart, rich, and exceedingly attractive?
No, we're not talking about some celebutante here, we're talking about something with staying power: the delicious rhubarb tarte from La Boulangerie Julien in Paris.
Now, deciding on this sweet treat was no easy feat--just look at some of the other offerings:
But ultimately it was the tarte that we selected, and were we ever rewarded: it was practically perfect in every way.
Starting with a sweet and sour-tart mix of assorted fruits, heavy on the rhubarb, the filling was perfectly paired with a flaky, thick, and very, very, very buttery crust. Its bright taste made a dull winter day bright--if you find yourself in Paris anytime soon (please, take me with you!), I'd highly suggest making a stop at one of the three Maison Julien locations for a taste of this delight.
