A Slice of Perfection

Tartelette aux Fraises - Maison Publique

Tartelette aux Fraises – Maison Publique

The Tartelette aux Fraises sits on a well-worn, cream stoneware plate whose only embellishment is a burgundy band round its edge. The thick plate has the telltale grey hue of cutlery wear. Its surface holds the history of delicious bistro dishes enjoyed. It’s a humble place for such a beautiful slice to land.

The ‘raison d’être’ is a tumble of strawberries spooned with seasonal abandon on top, hiding the dessert’s sweet foundation. A suggestion of sugar has been applied that teases the flow of crimson juices from the fruit, wetting it down in a glistening cloak. The berries have the subtle tropical honey taste of ripe pineapple, occasionally punctuated by small shards of fresh mint.
