Tarte Elysee, Westfield Eastgarden

“I prefer to regard a dessert as I would imagine the perfect woman: subtle, a little bittersweet, not blowsy and extrovert. Delicately made up, not highly rouged. Holding back, not exposing everything and, of course, with a flavor that lasts.” (Graham Kerr)

While doing my weekly grocery shopping at Westfield Eastgarden last Sunday, I stopped by at Tarte Elysee, the French tart specialist. This lovely shop never fail to lure me over. Owned by a talented pastry chef, James Travouillon, who comes from three generations of pastry chefs. He also runs another french patisserie called Paris Patisserie Francaise in Bondi.

The have great selection of sweet and savoury pastries, tarts,  pies, sausage rolls and quiches. You will never expect to find such a delicate pastisserie in a shopping mall, however this shop offers you the perfect French treat for all occasions. I bought back a few for myself to be savoured at home and to nourish my recent tart fetish.

I bought my favourite Berry Tart. The berries are so fresh with natural sweet and sour taste from the fresh berries, the base and custard cream are equally good.

Berry Tart $ 5.00

Another one I bought was the Apple Tart with layered of pastry on the side.
I like it because the pastry doesn't have the fatty-buttery-taste or I should say it's not too greasy.

 Apple Tart $4.50

Last, I bought the Lemon Lime Tart. The Lemon tart is for you if you fond something sour. This tart comes with a thick Lemon curd. I couldn't really scent the lemony in it, but the sourness of this tart enliven my appetite.

Lemon Lime Tart $5.00
