What’s white and creamy, tastes of honey and almonds… and is the most delicious sweet in the world? Simple… for me, it is the nougat from La Pâtisserie Sénéquier in Saint Tropez… I have been munching this delectable sweet since 1995 and this nougat is without doubt one of the best. I am sorry to admit that nougat is most definitely my thing… I consider myself a bit of an expert… sad for my waistline… but there you have it… the truth… I love it and will fight the traffic and the crowds of summer to stock up and take home a few bars.
Le Pâtiserrie Sénéquier also sell other temptations… such as marzipan fruit, fruit jellies, glacé fruit and the most famous of all, the Saint Tropezian tart… I dare you to come out of there empty handed.
If you are in Saint Tropez… have a coffee in Le Sénéquier… it’s the red one on the port… people watch… because that’s the place to do it and then walk through to the back, where the patisserie is located and try some of their sweeties… I promise… you will not be disappointed.
