Frenchie Toquée bakes delicious made to order French pastries for all the sweet tooth out there

5 little things we love – July 2020
Who doesn’t like a good French tart or cake? That might sound very cliché but when having friends at home or when invited at friends for dinner, I do love ending the meal with a proper dessert. My fav is by far the lemon meringue pie, but I can also hardly resist a chocolate tart. And I’m definitely fussy but I only love my dessert when it is homemade and baked with love. The trick is, I have neither the skill nor the patience to be a baking queen so need someone to do the work for me, someone like Pauline from Frenchie Toquée. A certified pastry chef, Pauline bakes and delivers fresh cakes, tartes and entremets to bring a nice sweet touch of homemade French pastries straight to your home. 
Hong Kong Madame loves: the signature Lemon Meringue tart and the addictive Chocolate Praline tart with its thin crunchy layer of praline right under a dense yet smooth chocolate ganache.

Dreaming of filling your freezer with treats such as mini croissants, creamy pain au chocolat, bread, tarts and cakes? Thanks to Bon Chef, you’ll never be short on French danishes and pastries again! God, I do love waking up on weekends knowing that I have croissants in the freezer and that it only takes 15 min of baking in the oven before I can enjoy my hot and buttery treat (but make sure to follow thawing instructions, it makes you treat even better). They even have some gluten-free options. Oh, and if you are hosting a little something at home, I definitely recommend having a look at their finger food selection, their savoury and sweet canapes will definitely make your life easier.
