Red Queen Tarts
Perhaps your gal isn’t a chocolate person? Or maybe you just want to try something completely different? Then Red Queen Tarts are just the ticket. These little pillows of perfection are made in small batches with organic ingredients and local fruit. All natural, fresh and sweet, (but not too sweet). You can order online, and have it shipped or delivered locally in Metro Atlanta. Tarts are sold in boxes of 6 for $24 and you can choose the variety of flavors that her heart desires. For this particular “holiday”, perhaps the Brandied Cherry & Dark Chocolate Ganache, Port Poached Pear, Hazelnut Chocolate and Prosecco Fig & Brie are the perfect pairings!

Every time we return to Provisions To Go, we seem to fall in love all over again. Not surprising as this gourmet-to-go mecca in West Midtown has everything we adore. From Atlanta’s favorite cheese monger Tim Gaddis running their fromagerie to the prepared foods (hello delicious Bahn Mi & shrimp po’ boy!) and all the tsatske in between, Star Provisions has you covered. On a visit earlier this week, we came across cases of cupcakes and brownies, boxes and baggies of Valentine’s themed sweet treats, old school greeting cards and clever little gifts to spoil your Valentine with. J’adore.
