Pastry chef, Alexandre Micka arrived in Saint Tropez from Poland in the 1950s and set up a small patisserie on the main square. He brought with him a closely guarded recipe from his Grandmother. The cake was a round brioche, sprinkled with pearl sugar and filled with a butter cream filling with a delicate hint of orange blossom water.
At the time, a movie called 'And God Created Woman' was being filmed at a nearby location, starring the iconic Brigitte Bardot. Micka was appointed as the chef for the production team. Bardot fell in love with the cake and suggested the name, Tarte Tropézienne, not caring that it was not in fact a tart at all! It became an iconic symbol of Saint Tropez and is today sold worldwide in various forms.
