Well, you remember how I said I was going to order some tarts from Miette for this week? ‘This time for sure?’ Well, I did! And they cancelled the order. Turns out they aren’t making tarts at the moment, probably because the filling isn’t cooked, and they don’t want to spread viruses. Sigh.
So instead I bought a couple of things from the MINA Family Kitchen, a new venture by Michael Mina and, I guess, his family. It was created in response to the closure of his restaurant by COVID.
The food? Amazing. The desserts? Well…
This one was apparently created by Ayesha Curry, who I am not familiar with, but that’s probably because I don’t follow the world of competitive chefing (chevving?)
Honestly, not too impressed! The crust was fine, but nothing special. Could have been flakier, or could have been tastier. The filling was a little sweeter than I prefer, not as tangy, not as tart. I mean, it was fine, but it was nothing special.
Call it 3 out of 5.
