Van Straten Almond Tarts

Van Straten makes two versions of almond tarts, their basic almond tart and a deluxe version. The basic tart is a shortcrust base in a tin with almond paste filling topped with a white icing and a piece of glaze cherry. The deluxe version will remind some people of a Bakewell tart. The filling is softer and moister like a pudding. Under it is a pocket of raspberry jam and it is contained in a puff pastry shell.  The icing on top is moister, too, so you teeth sink into it as opposed to needing to bite through it. The basic tarts are tasty treats but the deluxe lives up to its name. My father had an expression, “Good enough to kiss a fish wife for.”  I will leave that image up to your imagination!

Our online store allows you to browse our European Pantry shelves from the comfort of your home. You can pre-order for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas OR make arrangements with us to have your order shipped. We strive to keep the prices in our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Products with variable sizes like meat and cheese products will reflect approximate prices. 

Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate with you about shipping costs and any pertinent stock or price updates. Once you have said you wish to proceed we will send you an order summary. You will then be able to pay by eTransfer or call us with a credit card payment. PLEASE NOTE THAT SHIPPING ORDERS UNDER $25 BEFORE TAX AND SHIPPING MAY BE SUBJECT TO A $10 HANDLING FEE.  Thank you for shopping with us! We hope it is a pleasant experience. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our products or our ordering process.
