apricot tart in Lyon
No chopping, marinating or baking for this recent adventure; simply the joy of discovering the perfect apricot tart at a local market in Lyon.
An abundance of colour, aroma and texture that came together as a medley on a tranquil summer afternoon.
The apricots are here. And we enjoyed them together with peaches and tomatoes from the market.
We had also tried a few delicacies from the patisserie - the obligatory croissant, pain au chocolat and eclairs more than living up to their reputations.
But sometimes you want to share at home a whole tart, and enjoy cutting the size of piece you want as the coffee awaits on the table.
Sharing food with friends on a balcony while the sun shines and children play in the courtyard below.
It's good to be alive. And we found room for a second piece.
