I love Feel Good Bakery in Alameda, California (see post on “Feel Good” and website at http://www.feelgoodbakery.com/products.php). Recently at a work meeting, my boss ordered some of their pies and tarts to share. I had always seen their pies but never had a chance to try them before…
At the meeting, we had a pumpkin chocolate pie, lemon curd tart, strawberry and rhubarb pie, pomegranate tart, and a pear and almond. My favorite were the latter two.
I have never had a pomegranate tart before and was eager to try it! OMG, it was DELICIOUS! At room temperature, the filling had the texture of a runny lemon curd, so it is best eaten when chilled firm. Encased by a standard tart crust that went perfectly with the sweet and tart filling, I savored every bite.
I am a huge fan of pear and almond tarts in general, and this one hit the spot. The almond filling was perfect – not too sweet or dense. And there with just enough pear and almonds on top for a great contrast of textures.
Feel Good does it once again – and now we can take it to go!
