Does this just make your mouth water?

Oh, I just snapped a photo of this deliciously-adorned tart... but I ate the chocolate pâtisserie....

Yes! Because tart is my favourite sweet treat!!

Gringo said...

Very tasty! and yes! my mouth does water!

Dave said...

looks very yummy Genie.

The unhulled strawberries so remind me of when kiwifruit first hit the German market and confiseries rushed off to decorate cakes with slices. Skins and all.....

Shell Sherree said...

It's spectacular! And I suspect I'd have reached for the chocolate pâtisserie, too. If I'm going to indulge, I tend to go boots and all.

Andy said...

I'm trying to lose a few pounds but you really got my taste buds working.

Cezar and Léia said...

No doubts! FAbulous! :)

Bibi -- I will post this unnamed pâtisserie's famous chocolate pastry soon with some comments

Brittany -- You, o master of pastries, I am glad that you like this one!

Gringo -- Merci... it does the same to me.

Dave -- miam-miam!

JB -- Ewww... can you imagine biting into the fuzzy outside of the kiwi?

Shell -- You have such charming expressions. I will remember "boots and all" as that is pretty much my motto!

Andy -- The great thing about this tart is that it will only be your taste buds and you can only imagine the calories!

Léia -- I will order one of these to come your way.

o2 -- Merci... I love the rasberries with a frosting of sugar. They almost look like they are covered in snow.

Paul -- Miam-miam, indeed!

hollyb said...

miam miam! It looks lovely and fresh, and (dare I say it) not healthy but not that bad with all the fruit. Me - I'll take a tarte au caramel au buerre sale!

Ninny said...

Beautiful fruit tart, but like you, I'd have gone for the chocolate, too!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Holly, ma chere fille, make a list... the pâtisserie hunt continues (20 days and counting)!!

Liz -- As a "stylist" issue, I would have turned that one strawberry around (too much white showing).

M said...

Miam-miam ... superbe et savoureux! Beautiful photo -- I love the play of all the berry colors. And, I can probably convince myself that since it's fruit it would not derail my diet too much ... Ha!

Paula said...

here is so many inspirations!

have a nice time,
Paula

Virginia said...

I think I'd reach for the pain au chocolat myself but this is divine!

Halcyon said...

The chocolate would definitely get my mouth watering more than this. I pretty much only like desserts if they're chocolate. :)

Randy said...

Blackberries are my weakness as are raspberries. Good thing I wasn't there, you would have only photographed an empty gold tray.

Nina said...

Yes please!

Alexa said...

A thing of beauty—but not a joy forever if i got my sticky little fingers on it! And now I'm off to yoga to try to work off the calories consumed by osmosis just thinking about this and other French desserts (especially Holly's tarte au caramel au beurre salé!).

Starman said...

They should have made one with just the blackberries and the raspberries.

melocoton said...

oh my that looks DELISH!

greetings from Barcelona.

Loree said...

Oh lush ...mmm mmmm

EG Wow said...

This looks fabulous! Now I feel hungry. :)

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Marie -- I think that you are beyond fear in that department. Berries are good and the tart is so thin that it could not be that bad! The berry to tart ratio is quite high.

Paula -- Merci, and we will save une tranche pour toi.

Virginia -- Un pain au chocolat? Eh, non. We are talking some serious chocolate here... hehe

Halcyon -- Oh just wait, I will have a treat for you that is one of the best chocolate taste delights ever...

Randy -- The rasberries look divine. Hey, I like rasberries with chocolate too!

Nina -- I'll bring one to the knitting group you have...

Alexa -- Holly did not say that she has just completed 10 batches of macarons in about 4 evenings (>250 macarons) for a special order. miam-miam!

Starman -- I prefer those berries as well.

melocoton -- I think that you have some different, but tasty, pastries in Barcelona.

Dianne -- I do think that they sell a lot of these!

Loree -- We'll send one to you in Malta!

SoozNooz said...

Yum ...oh another reason to return x

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Suzy -- I hope that your trip with your daughter was fabulous and that you can return soon!

Harriet said...

All the 'food photographers' out there must be green with envy over your capture of this tart. It looks too good to eat, but I'd find a weak moment and dive in!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Wow -- Every time I pop back over, I get hungry again!

Harriet -- Now that is one of the nicest things I have heard in quite some time. There are some amazing food photographers (and you know who I mean). Many thanks, dear friend.

Alexa said...

Holly made how many macarons?? If she is ever in the market for a new BFF, my hand is already raised (and taste buds poised)!

Margaret Bednar said...

Makes my mouth water and my eyes glaze over. Beautiful!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Alexa -- She said that one batch was less-than-perfect which became "family macarons" (and they were pistache!!

Margaret -- Merci, mon amie...

JM said...

This is the most fantastic tart decoration I've ever seen!

Rob said...

Oh yes!!!

Sandrine de Paris said...

Ça me met l'eau à la bouche!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

JM -- Yes, and it is amazing that they could get it all on that tarte!

Rob -- I'll save a taste for you

Sandrine -- Merci pour vos commentaires
