Pichet Ong at Trace

This is the lovely, luscious lemon tart I recently had at the W restaurant Trace.  Turns out the pastry chef Janina O’Leary is a former protege of Pichet Ong, one of the best pastry chefs in the country.  He will be in town for the upcoming inaugural Austin Food and Wine Fest.  On Thursday night, Ong will be at Trace for a dessert dinner.  I am so excited about this one, I will be leaving the Austin Food and Wine Alliance Live Fire event early to make it downtown in time for the dessert royalty.  If you are a dessert groupie like me, call for reservations now.  Here is the description from the Facebook page.
