Take-home treats from à table!
à table! offers a gallery of Gallic goodies: crispy baguettes, aromatic pastries, traditional quiches and French cakes reminiscent of Paris to brighten every day. With such a wide selection, your first order might be a little tricky, so here is a guide to some of the elegant treats.
For example, the bobine is made of buttered dough similar to croissants, but also contains milk and eggs, giving it a lighter, crumblier end result. Its dough is rolled up and then sprinkled with various chocolate-fruit spreads and dried fruit.
Also available at à table! are raspberry & chocolate-cream, pecan-praline, lemon-caramel, and passion-fruit & chocolate-cream varieties of pastries.
The French baguette is, of course, kneaded from French flour, based on a Provençal recipe, using a French technique and shaped by hand. Pain normand is made with traditional French white bread, while foie gras croissants combine fig jam, French duck-liver cream slices and rocket.
The pain au pistachio is filled with chocolate and homemade pistachio cream, and Paris-Brest is a burnt dough-based dessert filled with almond, hazelnut and praline, topped with toasted almonds.
The mille-feuille is a classic French cream slice with bourbon-vanilla cream, the tarte au citron a traditional lemon tart, and the coffee cardamom is an Opera cake with the new dressing of cardamom and chocolate sprinkling.
