This recipe for a beautiful, savory veggie tartlet comes courtesy of La Petite Auberge in downtown Fredericksburg.
Owned and operated by the Renault family, La Petite has been a Fredericksburg favorite sine 1981. La Petite's menu often features local seafood and produce:
"We take full advantage of the wonderful local delicacies such as Shad Roe in mid to late winter, Soft Shell Crab in the summer and Rockfish year round. We buy our produce from the local farmers during the growing season. Our menus are composed daily and change according to the market and seasons."
