Excellent food to look at. The difficulty is choosing as they all look wonderful. Suggest choosing several items and sharing.

Stopped in to purchase a few different kinds of tarts - chocolate, brulee', Choc & hazelnut. I found the choc one too heavy for me but hubby loved it. Loved the brulee' and will go back to try the other varieties.
