Sacher Torte versus Tarta Santiago

A new cafe in a small seaside town creates a frisson of excitement.  Austrian, no less and from Vienna. Immediately there are thrilling undertones of The Third Man,  to say nothing of sachertorte and pastries.

It gets better! There will be yoga on the beach (couldn’t be a better summer for it) and  occasional literary evenings with local authors -including yours truly and readings from Murielle’s Angel!

We have suggested a bake off,  sachertorte and tarta Santiago –  eggs and chocolate or eggs and ground almonds – the one so Viennese the other so typical of Santiago de Compostela the end of the Camino.

Sadly we have missed St James’ Day on the 25th July but any day with cake can be cause for celebration.
