Tart alert: La Patisserie des Reves

La Patisserie des Reves - mango pineapple tart

The arrival of spring means one thing at La Patisserie des Reves: it’s time to bring out the fruit tarts.

Say hello to the mango pineapple tart – the latest offering from the pretty patisserie’s seasonal collection. And what a tart it is. Enveloped in the layers of crumbly, caramelised puff pastry is a generous centre of pineapple compote with mango pieces and vanilla cream topped off with layers of pineapple that have been marinated in some spiced fruit juice. This takes away any of the sharp tang and keeps the flavours light, so it’s ideal for a post-lunch treat or a quick afternoon pick-me-up.

And if you can’t get enough, you’re in luck. Raspberry and strawberry tarts will be making their way into stores soon too so keep your eyes peeled.

The mango pineapple tart costs £6.20 (single) or £39 (4-5 servings). lapatisseriedesreves.com
