The Beauty

I loved this so much I wish I could eat the picture. Yesterday I took my friend to Duchess for the first time to see what it was about and ordered a maple bacon macron (1.50$) and the passionfruit raspberry tart (6$) which I had been meaning to try.

It was absolutely divine. The macaroon was chewy and sweet and you could really taste the bacon accent. It also had a small piece of bacon in the center! The tart was composed of a smooth passionfruit and vanilla mouse topped with fresh raspberries and a green, white chocolate strip and sat on top of a pool of fresh raspberry jam in flaky crust. The jam was not overly sweet and complimented the flavorr of the passionfruit mouse.
