Nothing feels quite so comforting as a piece of warm apple tart, fresh out of the oven. Served as it is here at Just In Bistro, in a red hot metal pan with sauce caramel, it is irresistible.

JQ’s signatures baked fine apple tart with sauce caramel, 400 NTD

JQ’s signatures baked fine apple tart with sauce caramel (400 NTD) has got all the right elements. A delicate tart base made up of 8 phyllo pastry layers, a spread of tangy green apple slices, a glaze of bitter sweet caramel sauce, and a sprinkle of crunchy toasted almond slices.

The apples used for this pastry are green apples from France, especially chosen for its sweet tart flesh and ability to hold up well to heat.

The phyllo pastry is paper thin, so delicate each piece could be inhaled. It’s a wonder how the crust stays so crisp even when topped with juicy fruits.

To go along with the apple tart, how about a cup of Gryphon‘s White Tea White Moscato (180 NTD)? One sniff, and I was a believer. This delicate blend of white tea is smoked with moscato, a variety of grapes frequently used to make sparkling and dessert wine, so that the tea has a stunningly sweet aroma. Yet, the tea itself is barely sweet, an ideal accompaniment for desserts.

Or, opt for a Vittoria Caffe Latte (150 NTD).

What a perfect afternoon.
