Break for a snack: a blueberry tavaillon at La Sabaudia

The blueberry is a vital ingredient in local gastronomy! In tarts, jam or main dishes, you can taste them in many different ways at any time of day. At La Sabaudia, we invite you to try them as a tavaillon (tile), but not one made of wood... This biscuit made from puff pastry and blueberries will delight food lovers of all ages. To be enjoyed with a drink on a tea room terrace!
