A Taste of France for Valentine’s

Paris is the City of Love but it’s not always the easiest thing to book a little getaway for Valentine’s. Yep, the day that happens once a year, and yes, you kind of have to plan for it But if you want to grab you piece of France here’s what you’ll need to do: take a trip to your local supermarket and get it in the form of Gü desserts. Their range comes in packets of two and in a variety of options, although I love a chocolate soufflé and a lemon cheesecake, it’s the tartlets that are the thing to go for.

Chocolate covered strawberries would be amazing but unless the fruits look pretty much perfect I don’t really like to buy them when it’s not their season – I looked for strawberries for three days straight and couldn’t find a single punnet that had deep red strawbs so I’m still on the hunt.

The tartlets* come in 4 temping flavours and I’m yet to get my hands on the Passion Fruit or Lemon Meringue because they’re always sold out! But the Velvety Praline works so well as a sweet substitute to the standard box of chocolates. If you’re after that chocolate fix the Rich Chocolate tartlet is the way to go topped with a Belgian chocolate ganache perfect with some raspberry coulis to make a sweet and sour dream combo!

Add a bottle of Prosecco and you pretty much have the perfect sweet treat for date night. (Thank me later!)

What flavour would you go for?

Well, hi there!

I’ve never been one for ‘about me’ pages so let's keep it short and sweet: I'm 25 (so I guess you could assume I'm going through a quarter-life crisis), London-based, love food, oh, and partial to a rum-based drink... or just the rum tbh.
