If you're passing through Sonoma County's Glen Ellen and need a treat, be sure to stop for pastry at HKG tasting room.
The chocolate hazelnut tart was divine. A single serving took six tries to finish - each bite satisfied my need for sweet.
I'm a local and appreciate these high quality pastries in my neighborhood. Guests will enjoy them too.
I met Chef Khambay and she's both modest and enthusiastic about her creations. She is an artist-chef.
