The pastry chefs at Maison Dalloyau have created a pretty duo of heart-shaped tarts inspired by Japanese Valentine’s Day customs.
In Japan, Valentine’s Day is not celebrated like the Western romantic holiday. Instead, it is a day for women to give chocolates to men! The men, in return, give women presents on March 14th (White Day).
Dalloyau’s Valentine’s Day tarts—raspberry red and white meringue—combine the softness of a lemon-scented white chocolate mousse, tender almond biscuit and a raspberry and ginger compote. The crispy base is made with almonds, puffed rice and puff pastry.
