SOUVENIRS D’ENFANCE

Old time pastries

  • Gateau au citron / Lemon Cake 

A delicious yellow -only because of eggs, butter and lemon !- cake with a sweet-tangy lemon glaze.  Perfect for cutting into finger-sized portions for tea.

 

  • Gateau aux fruits confits / Fruit Cake

What could be more delicious for a tea time treat than a slice of fruit cake. The success of this deliciously rich, moist cake lies in soaking the dried mixed fruits in strong dark tea the evening before : the tea adds a subtle depth of flavor to the cake.

 

  • Pain d’épices / Gingerbread

Slightly spicy gingerbread is the ultimate Christmas treat. Try our recipe !

 

  • Flan Pâtissier

It’s hard not to come across a bakery in France that doesn’t sell large slices of the popular Flan Pâtissier (also known as flan Parisien) with its delicious thick custard browned on top and a buttery pâte brisée on the bottom.

 

  • Chou à la crème

The chou à la crème contrasts a light pastry shell with a thick, rich crème patissière custard filling for an experience somewhat different from the usually lighter American cream puff, but every bit as heavenly when it comes to taste.

 

  • Mousse au chocolat / Chocolate mousse

Chocolate mousse is the quintessential romantic French dessert.

 

  • Les bugnes

Angel wings are a traditional sweet crisp pastry made out of dough that has been shaped into thin twisted ribbons, deep-fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Traditionally present in Lyon cuisine where I come from !

 

  • Panna Cotta

Panna cotta (from Italian cooked cream) is an sweet creamy Italian dessert. It is generally believed to have originated in the Northern Italian region of Piedmont, although it is eaten all over Italy, where it is served with wild berries, caramel, chocolate sauce, or fruit coulis.

 

  • Tiramisu

Tiramisu (in Italian, it means « pick me up » or « lift me up ») is a popular coffee-flavoured Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture including mascarpone cheese, eggs, sugar and flavoured with cocoa.
