Ever wondered what’s a Tarte Tropezienne ?
Well, I wasn’t really sure myself until the kind folks at La Tarte Tropezienne sent over a box of these little sweet delicacies for me to try out. After gathering some facts, they aren’t tarts of any sorts. Or rather, more specifically, they are cream-filled brioche that originates from St. Tropez in France, which pretty much sums up on why they are named Tropezienne as well.
Typical of a sweet French pastry, the details that goes into these dainties has to be beyond words. While others had their Tropezienne build on a typical 8 to 9 inches cake size, the ones from La Tarte were carefully moulded on bite sizes which definitely proves to be both child and adult friendly, with the exclusion of a terrible mess whilst enjoying them. While a slice of Tropezienne might be too much for me to gather, bite sizes are just appropriate to satisfy that sweet tooth cravings at any time of the day.
While I love the rich buttery brioche that’s topped with an abundance of pearl sugar well, the luscious pastry creme that encompasses it, is equally a winner. And yes, please do resist the temptation and chill them in the fridge well before consumption. It tasted more awesome than when they are left at room temperature.
Though these tropeziennes mirrors of macarons, both being sweet French pastries, with delectable creme sandwiched, they are not as harsh on the taste buds when it comes to the sugar intake. And upon slicing into them, the rich succulent creme that oozes, infused nicely with the richness of the butter outer and completes your cravings with an optimum that will just kept you going for more. And what’s more, you could make your selection out of the various flavours available, namely The Original, Chocolate, Lime, Hazelnut, Coffee and Green Tea.
