Pure Bread on Hastings

October 24, 2014

Flourless orange cake - 2+

J's comment > very moist and nutty, just the perfect balance of cream and cake; not too sweet; actual orange peel grated straight into the mixture, orange flavor very fresh

Raspberry cheesecake brownie (sample) - 2+

J's comment > rich and decadent brownie, but most shocking factor was the perfect balance of the cheesecake and brownie, neither outshining the other, both working in harmony

Tomato ricotta galette - 2

J's comment > not bad; pastry very crisp; could have used a tad more filling of tomato & ricotta, but what was provided was good; FYI, there was one other type of cheese in there that gave it the cheesy texture that I doubt ricotta can 

Purebar - 2

J's comment > a decent healthy bar; on the firm side, w a touch of nuttiness; not as sticky/chewy as it looks 

Lavender earl grey scone - 2

J's comment > definitely on the hard side; strong lavender earl grey flavor; tastes best as it, don't bother reheating (I re-toasted it and it turned out even harder - I tried it both before and after)

Shot of the pastry case (as far as the eye can see... !)
Yeah, there's a lot of good stuff here :D
