Petits gateaux aux agrumes

One of my favourite English traditions is an elegant afternoon tea, where fine English tea is served in the best porcelain cups, accompanied by tiny finger sandwiches and dainty buttery pastries. These heavenly “petits gâteaux” are worthy of traditional afternoon teas!

Meringue au Marron

If you love chestnuts, then this is the dessert for you! It’s quite light (because it contains a high proportion of egg whites which are very low in calories). It’s also elegant when decorated with a few fresh mint (or other green) leaves and tiny fresh flowers.
