La Farine fig & berry tart

Man does not live by chocolate tart alone. I was up in Rockridge on an errand and stopped in at La Farine. I bought the last little fig and berry tartlet and I just inhaled it.

Quite the nice dessert (pre dinner). The tart was topped with 3 small halved black mission figs with skins on punctuated at the edges by raspberries and dotted with a blackberry at the center. The raspberries tended to dominate the figs, so I ate them separately. The figs were semi-jammy, but firm with good mild figgy flavor. Pate brisee was very brown (intentional?) and slightly caramelized. The pastry cream was simply there to showcase the figs. Most of my fig eating is done right off my mom's tree, but these figs were very good.
