Frangipane is a luscious foil for the last, best gasp of the summer harvest, quick enough for a steamy August day and decadent (and impressive) enough to transition through the bittersweet (at least for me) season of fall.
My recent adventure with allspice-heavy pickled red onions has given me a new taste for the spicy berry. It is a natural with ginger and peaches, and a little unexpected in a summer dessert.
The Bahamian pineapple tart is tasty and tropical and very humble. I remember thinking it could be much more.
