Having trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and worked at Pascal Pinaud's patisserie on rue Monge in the 5th arrondissement, the French Tarte is no stranger to the delicious wonders of Parisian sweets.
The French Tarte specializes in classic tarts, a myriad of buttery shortbreads, nutty financiers, delicate madeleines, flaky croissants, and a tempting selection of French style pastries and desserts.
For Easter three special tarts are available for order: Passion Raspberry, Toasted Coconut Cream, and Caramel Hazelnut Truffle.
Some of the latest pastry creations include:
- Apricot cream escargot -- spiraled croissant dough with pastry cream and apricots
- Gateau Basque (pictured)
- Canele bordelais
- Apricot walnut brioche
- Breton Raspberry pistachio tart
- White chocolate Macadamia shortbread
- Sugar bun - another incredible use for croissant dough!
Be sure to come by the shop and visit the shortbread bar during the Saturday Winter Farmers Market where you can mix and match your flavors!
