It looks like rhubarb to me, too. I'd call it a tart but where do they call it a clafouti? I've never heard the word.

That does look like rhubarb, doesn't it? It was sitting right beside the ham and mushroom quiche. But rhubarb sounds appealing right now.....

Clafoutis (I lost an s in typing) is a French dessert that is essentially a tart with fruit (the most traditional is cherries) in a flan-like custard. Usually you bake part of the custard a bit, add the fruit and more custard. I always thought it was from Normandy, because I first encountered it there, and then in a Norman restaurant in Paris, but it turns out the food historians say it comes from Limousin, and the name is from the Occitan "clafotis" which means "filled." So what probably...

Very interesting. Eating them for decades and never heard the term. I love to learn something about which I believed I already knew it all! Yum.

Paul bakeries are my downfall and they seem to be everywhere. Millions of calories I don't need have been forced on me by this company, against my will of course. They clearly use hypnosis or some similar mechanism, from which one cannot escape. Fortunately, as far as I know, there's an ocean between me and the closest such tart pusher.

We really enjoyed Paul's as well. Everything was always perfectly fresh and perfect! An excellent budget travel tip for those looking for an inexpensive breakfast or lunch while in Europe. And everything in their counter does reach out to your psyche with an "Eat me" message!

Pheymont -- are you trying to tell me you'd refuse an offering from that platter just because your favorite wasn't on it?? If so, your willpower is a log factor stronger than mine!

Hmmmmm....Dessert anyone?

    I'm quick to confess -- I've a weakness for dessert, especially of the oven-baked or gelato kind.  It's nothing new, an affliction I've had for as long as I can remember, making me very sympathetic to the, "Let's eat dessert first"...

Do you find Dessert first leaves no room for a main meal ? And secondly - if its that delicious - who cares ! It's not like you're doing this at home now - or is it ?

GarryRF, As you know if we were to constantly indulge in a spread like this, we'd be rolling in like beach balls instead of walking in. It's just a treat. Desserts at home are much simpler fare, but always enjoyed!

Now there's an idea...instead of ordinary tables, there could be treadmills, stationary bikes, stairclimbers and so forth, each with a small table top for the dessert. As you worked off the calories of each serving, you could go get another...
