VILEBREQUIN x LA TARTE TROPÉZIENNE 01 June 2017 - Collaborations The story of La Tarte Tropézienne began in 1955, when Alexandre Micka opened a bakery on the town hall square in St-Tropez. He introduced customers to a cream-filled brioche passed down from a family recipe kept close to his chest. As filming for And God Created Woman began, the village started to gain notoriety. The production team, and Brigitte Bardot in particular, fell under the spell of the dessert and suggested that Micka name his signature pastry ‘The St-Tropez Tart’. The rest, as they say, is history. Often imitated but never equaled, the Tarte Tropézienne is forever a part of French culinary heritage.
