Petits Fours / Finger Food

Petits fours (‘little ovens’) are bite-sized pastries that appear after a fancy meal, which are often so beautiful and tempting that you can’t resist, even though you’re absolutely stuffed.

There are also petits fours salés to go with your apéro or to nibble at a vernissage.
