No. 6: The Matterhorn from Andre’s Confiserie Suisse
To whet your appetite for The Pitch’s annual Best of Kansas City issue, we’re counting down our favorite Top 50 dishes each weekday until October 7.
The highest mountain peak in Missouri is the Taum Sauk summit in Iron County, which soars 1,765 feet above sea level. OK, so Mount Kilimanjaro, it ain’t.
But what about the sweetest mountain summit in the Kansas City region? That, unquestionably, is the Matterhorn. Not the snow-dusted mountain between Italy and Switzerland, but the 3-inch-tall pastry from Andre’s Confiserie Suisse, the iconic pastry, candy and tea shop at 5018 Main on the Missouri side and 4929 West 119th Street in Kansas.
