La Tarte Tropézienne

In 1955, Alexandre Micka, founder of La Tarte Tropézienne, opened his first pastry shop in the main square in the town of Saint Tropez.

Originally from Poland, Alexandre fell in love with this little preserved historic fishing village, which was already popular with many writers and intellectuals who enjoyed the peace and charm of this pretty little seaside port.
Among the pastries he offered, Alexandre Micka created a cream-filled brioche inspired by one of his grandmother's recipes, the secret of which he jealously guards. Brigitte Bardot discovered this creamy brioche during the shooting of Roger Vadim's film "And God Created Woman."

She fell in love with this sweet pastry and became an enthusiastic ambassador for this dessert and even suggested that Alexandre Micka call it La Tarte Tropézienne!
