La Tartine Gourmande: Stories about Food and Life, is pleasing to both the senses and the soul. It has fabulous photography and great recipes, and has brought in rave reviews from critics. It includes the categories of appetizers, desserts, tarts, and chocolate plenty for the sweet-toothed as well as gluten-free and vegetarian offerings. The site is the creation of Béa, of French roots now making a home in Boston. She has also lived in New Zealand, and her international influences and interest in travel is clearly evident. Béa, a contributor to the Boston Globe Food section, enjoys exploration through words and photos, and shares her food discoveries and stories with us through her talent as a food stylist, photographer and writer.
