Give in to the Tarte des Alpes
The Tarte des Alpes (Alpine tart) is one of the culinary symbols of the French Southern Alps, particularly in the Vallée du Valgaudemar. Its recipe is simple: a sweet pastry is filled with blueberry or strawberry jam and covered with a lattice topping. In his shop in Barcelonette, Délices de Montagne, pastry chef Serge Basset offers his reinvented recipe: a walnut and honey Tarte des Alpes. Do you have any room left? Discover the Boulangerie Dumas, which has been producing the tart since 1955. Yet another good excuse to bring back gourmand souvenirs!
