One of my favorite desserts that I wait for with anticipation after a long winter is a strawberry rhubarb tart. As rhubarb is one of the first foods in the garden to push its way through the soil, in only a few more weeks time, late spring, the strawberries become ripe and extremely fresh and flavorful. The combination of the sweet and the tart with a dollop of vanilla gelato or ice cream is a sweet reward for coming out of the chilly winter, and awakening my tastebuds to the abundance the new season brings.
