This time last year I was in Paris, where I spent most of the trip residing in pâtisseries eating pastries. Lots of pastries. This picture displays one of my favourites: Tarte au Citron avec Macaron au Citron. Lemon on lemon pastry heaven. Tangy, creamy and sweet with a crisp, buttery pastry. Take me back!
We don’t have a great deal of pâtisseries here in Manchester, other than Slattery and Pâtisserie Valerie (have I missed any?) So I’ve acquired a French recipe book and I’m planning on baking (and eating) pastries in abundance this year. But, I’d quite like to know what your favourite pastry is, and why?
