Tarte Bourdalou from Provence, France

I decided it's been too long since I last posted anything. So while waiting for my next inkling, here's a picture of a dessert presented to me as a surprise in July when I was in Marseille. This wonderful cream-mousse tart is completely heavenly. The outer layer has a nice elasticity with a caramel and almond flavor. And when you bite into the center, it's a fluffy and light texture with a contrast to the bottom crust. A specialty from the Provence region in southern France.

hi cindy, love the pics on your site.. yummy marrons... My bf who's lived in Marseille for 15 yrs got me the Tarte Bourdalou from a pastisserie outside the L'eglise du Reforme at the top of the Cannebiere. I tried to google it for more info before writing the entry but couldn't find anything. Doesn't ring to bell to you either huh? k
