The first 2 and a half weeks we spent learning all different styles and flavors of tarts. A tart is not something that is that well known back home in Cali but here in France they are a staple in every pastry shop. There are a million different varieties. The standard apple tart can be found anywhere, and then you can find crazy flavors like green tea and matcha red beans at places like Pierre Herme.
We made a pretty good variety and I definitely had my favorites: Chocolate and Cafe.
