Deciphering the Infamous Tart Debate: Quest for the Ultimate Tart Superiority

Slices of Guava, Coconut and Pineapple Tart

If you've ever talked to a Virgin Islands local, you might have heard about the tart debate around the holidays. This iconic shortcrust pastry is woven into the fabric of our upbringing and offers a symphony of flavours in every bite. Crafted with care and tradition, its ingredients form a harmonious blend: flour, sugar, butter, and milk. Enriched with eggs, almond and vanilla essence, and a sprinkle of cinnamon, each tart boasts a nostalgic aroma that transports you to cherished memories. Along with the delight in the subtle hints of mixed spice. Savour the taste of home with every mouthful of our BVI tart.

The beloved tart comes alive in three delightful variations: coconut, pineapple, and guava. Each flavour embodies the essence of our tropical paradise, offering a burst of island-inspired goodness with every bite.

The coconut tart, with its creamy texture and tropical aroma, pays homage to the lush coconut palms swaying in the Caribbean breeze. Its delicate sweetness, infused with desiccated coconut and a hint of almond essence, evokes memories of sun-kissed shores and lazy afternoons.
