a new friend, a tart and france


I have a new friend, her name is tzurit, but i have always had a favourite bakery, Tatte i have blogged about it here and here .  Tzurit owns Tatte and i have been lucky enough to finally meet her, well not in person but through many emails. i can't  tell you how many times her and i have said "me too", we share so much in common, the love for tin ceilings, unusually re-salvaged materials, childhood memories and even some of our daily struggles.  early on we talked about paris and shopping for her new bakery Tatte Two that will open in cambridge this spring and guess what, she will be joining us in dordogne this fall. she bakes at night, while juggling the design of the new bakery and motherhood. she has incredible taste and has even employed Anthropologie's builders( gonna be gorgeous). while she bakes at night she often tweets images, i drool and answer back things like oh my, and how i wish and you know what she sent me a box of beautiful baked goods, it arrived yesterday. this morning i opened it ( i have patience) to find these lovely treasures but when i unwrapped the pear tart my heart leaped, how beautiful and simple it is which is the formula for everything she makes. i am lucky to have a new friend who feels like a very old and dear one, who happens to be the owner of my favourite bakery.

* also included is halva squares and her signature nut tart. i bring all my friends there and it happens to be where i choose to meet bloggers for the first time. so delicious. Tatte 2 will also include a restaurant and shop and that is very exciting!

* i am sorry i am the worst food blogger, i should take our workshop:)!
*dishes some antique ironstone and some from the talented asya of Gleena

Gorgeous. A little corner of heaven that I hope to visit some day, especially because it is in my favorite city.
Also, your home is so serene and beautiful! I always enjoy the pictures of your home so much.

Excited to hear the good news about Tatte Two! Thanks to your lovely blog, I discovered Tatte and brought a friend there for her birthday. We had a wonderful time. It's such a beautifully dreamy and delicious place.

Pear tart = Pure beauty!

A friend asked of my dream business. Your lovely photographs of the tart sum it up sweetly! Truth is I’d rather taste than bake! Happy for your kindred friend and the gifts she offers so beautifully. Enjoy Nadia!

P.s. Admire your patience!

So lovely. Lucky you! I'm so glad when I hear about lovely meetings like this... it's my favourite part of this (sometimes) strange blog thing we do.

I actually love the food shots and love seeing Tatte's nut boxes... reminds me of when we visited so long ago... i love full circle moments!

Stephanie said...

I am excited to meet Tzurit too! Maybe she will bring a box of treats to France :) lol.

p.s. her new shop is going in right next to MIT campus...where we lived 8 yrs ago. So bummed she wasn't there then...surely I would've gained 10 pounds! (willingly :))

Bonbon Oiseau said...
