if you love tarts, you got to try these elevated tarts from The Tartlery. Helmed by inaugural Masterchef Asia 2015 finalist, Sandrian Tan, The Tartlery aims to reinvent classic tart flavours by retaining their time-honoured characteristics while adding a touch of complexity.
Sandrian Tan’s interpretation of how a tart should be – layers of luscious fillings, playful flavours and a vibrant canvas of colourful toppings. Her tarts are original creations, said to be inspired by her experiences, stories of friends or simply fresh ingredients of the seasons.
They are seriously pretty and we couldn’t bear to eat them when we first unboxed the tarts:
The elegant tarts (8cm) come in a box of four ($35) or six creations ($50). We were sent a preview set of six tarts to try out:
The runaway favourite for us was Mont Timah, followed by Grape Kobo and Stonehenge.
Not only is the name fun, Mont Timah is a cheeky local interpretation of a French classic. It is elegant in presentation and there is an explosion of sweet and earthy flavours when you bite in.
For the latter two, the fresh, seasonal fruits used were paramount, coupled with the delicate craftsmanship and presentation.
In addition to tarts, The Tartlery also offers artisanal tea to wash down the sweet aftertaste.
Collaborating with Chá By Land, a tea collector offering exquisite teas carefully selected from the plantations of China, the tarts are paired with the following tea pairings – Grand Scarlet & The Original Breakfast Tea.
