Clean Slate for Creativity
Cultures worldwide have bread-based offerings that represent their heritage, such as Italian crostini and Indian-inspired roti. The tartine, translating to “toasts” in French, is an open-faced concept that originally only featured spreadable ingredients like jam or butter. Today’s chefs are taking tartines to the next level, using them as platforms to showcase on-trend ingredients, dynamic textures, seasonality, and unique ﬂavor proﬁles. Tartines with veg-forward toppings not only appeal to vegetarians but also to consumers looking for a lighter offering packed with fresh, seasonal ingredients and a captivating combination of ﬂavors. Signature tartines require minimal prep, adapt easily to each season, and represent your brand’s originality.
