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!

Oh Canada!We can only accept Canadian orders


Our online store is set up to allow you to browse our European Pantry shelves from the comfort of your home. It also enables you to pre-order and make arrangements for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas. We strive to keep the prices listed on our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Furthermore, package weight variations for meat and cheese products make it impossible to provide accurate fixed prices. 

Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate any changes in pricing as well as the actual prices of weighed items. You will then be able to confirm your order and arrange payment. 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.
