As the weather continues to oscillate between summer-hot and super cold, our tires get flatter and flatter, and it becomes clearer by the day that we will not, in fact, locate our missing AirPod, we take solace in knowing that we can order this - a radiant, golden-crusted apple galette, courtesy of Fuyuko Kondo’s new pop-up. For those not familiar, Kondo is a renowned Japanese pastry chef who’s worked in places like Gaston Le Notre in Tokyo and Paris’ Joel Robuchon - and the experience shows. Slices of apple are laid out in a symmetrical wreath-like formation, then covered in a sweet and salty cinnamon/butter glaze. And that crust - made with locally grown Sonora-style flour, is baked with absolute precision, kind of like this amazing Sopranos meme we found.
