Dessert & Baked Goods » Strawberry Pâte de Fruit
Christina Kaelberer, Executive Pastry Chef at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Market at the W Boston, makes candies so beautiful they look like edible little gems. Pâte de Fruit translates from French literally to "fruit paste." A luscious strawberry purée is cooked to a soft velvety texture. The candies are cut into vibrant little squares of heaven and tossed in sugar for a sparkly finish, reminiscent of the work of the finest Parisian pâtisserie.
