Kele has been around for almost 30 years, so you know it must be doing something right. We love the open-faced pineapple tarts because everything’s delicately balanced. From the butter to the texture of the pastry and the sweetness of the pineapple filling. For something different, try the tangerine pineapple balls. It’s a creation that mixes traditional and contemporary flavours in one bite.
