March 16th, 2013. Fancy Time at Yew @ The Four Seasons
After brunch with Joyce I rendezvoused with Tracy downtown. It’s been a while since Tracy was downtown with a gal-pal! We strolled through Holt Renfrew trying on high-end shoes, and browsing the gorgeous and (some not so cute) haute couture bags 😉
Tracy was just so happy to be out of the house and having some much deserved me-time that we also stopped in at Yew at the Four Season’s for a snack!
Tracy was intent on getting a cocktail to make the most of the experience, but since I’d be driving us back I opted for a delicious little Cappuccino. It joyfully came served with an in-house made Biscotti 🙂 Gotta love the extra little touch and detail that I’ve come to expect from Yew ♥
For my nibbles I ordered the Organic Local Apple Tart. Of course this wasn’t just your average apple tart. No, this was an apple tart made of Cox’s Pippin and Liberty French apples,aged cheddar ice cream and hazelnuts. Thin shavings of the cheddar and a caramely glaze garnished the slate that the dessert was served on.
Rich, buttery pastry encompassed the sweet and tart apples which were not soggy and still retained a hint of that great apple crunch. I’m not a huge fan of nuts, so the hazelnuts were just nuts to me, but I loved nibbling on the cheese shavings held between my fingers and that ice cream was super creamy and smooth with just a breath of that rich cheesy flavor.
As always, a very satisfying experience and service, as always, was prompt, pleasant and helpful. Yew gets a thumbs up every time 😀
