With François Perret , the sweet chef at the Ritz and more recently at the Comptoir du Ritz , the 5-star pastry shop, strawberries are necessarily eaten with cream. He thus imagined this superb tart with divinely aromatic ciflorettes grown in the open ground in the Vaucluse , a topping of strawberry-basil jus… And in the centre: a crème d'Etrez made with crème de Bresse AOP. Undoubtedly the ultimate pastry of the summer!
For 4 people: €55.
