Frangipane Tart


A poached pear delight, with homemade buttery crumbly crust.


Frangipane Tart


"I love French pastries, American pastries have too much sugar in them in my opinion which drowns out the delicate flavors of whatever else is being used. The French do a great job of balancing flavors of nuts, fruits, and butter so that each ingredient shines and they also make sure that the mouthful of each dessert is light and airy."
