Traditional Tipsy Tarts



Few things are as delightful and delicious as a traditional tipsy tart. Served with coffee at a sensible hour or as a generous portion of dessert, there always seems to be a place for this local delicacy. Winding down our focus on heritage food for September, we add a splash of our charming Culinaria Muscat de Frontignan to the sauce and hope you enjoy this indulgence as much as we do!
