Rhubarb Alert !

rworange | Mar 28, 2006 04:38 PM

It seems the time of the year for rhubarb ... here are two great rhubarb desserts. Hope other people will report their finds ... any rhubarb sorbet or gelato out there? Maybe people could drop a hint at thier favorite gelato place.


Crixa - Rhubarb cream pie - outstanding rhubarb delicousness

Not what is sounds like. Basically it is a rhubarb gallete with big juicy perfect pieces of rhubarb where, I guess, some cream is mixed into the juice.

It is not cream in the sense of banana cream pie. Really a fruit pie. It has been on the menu often lately (today). Juicy wonderful tart rhubarb lovingly cradled in a flakey, buttery crust with just the slightess sprinkle of sugar on the crust. Yes, I will say it ... yum ... in fact, yum, yum.

Albany - Lolas - Rhubarb crisp

Think of the perfect classic rhubarb crisp. This is it.

Also a note about Crixa again. They are now making savory pastry like piroshki. Today they had a spicach walnut filling in a wonderful buttery turnover. Also outstanding.

Now off to vacuum out my ateries.
