Peach verbena tarte – Laduree

Peach verbena tarte - Laduree
Tarte peche verveine. Sweet pastry verbena panna cotta, roasted peach quarters. £6
Laduree, London ENGLAND

This tart was REALLY pretty and the verbena panna cotta and peaches were pretty tasty! I was expecting a thinner and more flavorful pastry shell though. This pastry was too thick and clunky, and very difficult to cut through. I expected a lot from Laduree, but they really didn’t deliver the goods.

Plum galette – Bar Agricole

Plum galette Bar Agricole

Served with lemon verbena ice cream and a ginger crumble. $9
Bar Agricole, San Francisco

While this desert tasted fine, there was something about it that felt a little flat. Perhaps the portion was too small, or perhaps the plate looked a little sad – I’m not sure. I did love the additional fo the ginger flavored crumble. It added a great flavor and texture to an otherwise boring(ish) plate.
