A SWEET TOOTH

We've just discovered that famous French cat Pompon has a weakness for Calissons d'Aix, a traditional provençal confection made from a fine paste of melon confiture (or other fruits) and ground almonds, flavored with orange water and glazed with icing on a thin biscuit. Its diamond shape represents a weaving shuttle.

Vocabulary
veritable:  real, genuine
avoir une faible pour les sucreries:  to have a sweet tooth
une navette:  here, a weaving shuttle; a shuttle (as in transportation--and not to be confused with un navet or turnip)
