No. 136-137: Gâteaux et Tartes
I don’t know how many different types of cakes and tarts there are in France, but since there are over 350 different varieties of cheese available here, I’m wagering there has to be at least that many possibilities for decadent dessert.
En France, I have never met a gâteau or tarte I don’t care for, and this being a birthday weekend chez nous, I thought I’d share a few pictures of some of my favorites I’ve indulged in either in reality or in my dreams.
Even when I’m being good (which is most of the time), I’m lucky to be surrounded by this dazzling eye candy. Not only are they delicious on the taste buds, but they are also exquisite works of art.
Bonne dégustation! Enjoy! (literally good tasting)
c’est notre préféré: it’s our favorite
chez nous: at our house
gâteau au chocolat: chocolate cake
gâteau or tarte: cake or tart
tarte aux pommes: apple tart
tarte au citron: lemon tart
They all look very yummy…I do like cakes & pies in France though I rarely indulge as I don’t have a sweet tooth. I have more trouble resisting cheeses and bread though…(Suzanne)
I have a hard time resisting them all! Luckily our pockets aren’t deep, so we only eat them on special occasions.
Yummy and beautiful!!! I’ll take the lemon tart!
It’s the best!
all impressive cakes!
Works of art, don’t you think?
Absolutely never seen such a beautiful array
I agree! I love all the sweet treats here in France. I’m also a big fan of the tarte au citron 🙂
So delicious, right? Thanks for reading and the comment.
