Weekend Tasting: Des gateaux et du Pain

By on 04.01.15

Last time I tried the apple tarte tatin from des Gateaux et du Pain, this time we tried the damassé and the chausson au citron. The chausson I had tried before already actually and I think my taste preference changed a bit over these months.

The damessé is like a baby of the parisian flan and the Portugese pastel de nata. It had a mild flavor and was not very sweet. I might say the flavor was too mild maybe. Not bad though, just not as good as the Portugese Pastel de Belem.

Last time I found the chausson a bit too sour, this time I really appreciated the acidity.

Overall I really like Des Gateaux et du Pain, the pastries are made less sweet which I appreciate.
