 Homemade Puff-Pastry Sweet and Savory Tarts
We make fresh, small-batch puff-pastry by hand and combine it with seasonal fruits and vegetables to produce first-quality tarts in the French style. We stint on nothing in the process.

It was my intention from the outset to make the highest-quality French-style tarts I could — a process that takes three days. All the puff-pastry is made by hand in small batches; and each tart is cut and shaped individually. No stinting on butter — I use prodigious amounts of an expensive European-style version with an especially high butterfat content. My fruit and jam are bought carefully and are of the least adulterated quality.

Find us every Saturday without fail from 9 am to 1 pm at The Millbrook (NY) Farmers' Market. The 2017 season runs from May 27th through October 28th.

You can also find an edited array on the weekends at Big Rock Farms, 6031 Route 82 in Stanfordville; and at The Farmer's Wife, 3809 Route 44 in Mabbettsville.

Outside of the season we also happily accept special orders; so think of us for your parties, luncheons, weddings and events. We're flexible and particularly fond of our customers.

One bite will tell you you're eating something special.

This is SLOW FOOD.

Tartlets are our latest introduction. Just right for one.


I baked for this recent wedding. The couple veered from tradition and chose apple tartlets instead of wedding cake. It was a great success.
