Tarting Around

If I were ever to cook well enough to have a signature dish then this Bakewell tart from Jamie Oliver's book Jamie At Home would be it... it's quite a hassle to make - but when plums are in season it's de-lic-ious! Warning: it uses up a whole month of butter rations in one go.

I probably only make it once a year - this time I made it so that we could give some to H's work mate as a thank-you for lending me his sat-nav.
The rest of the year, we go to the 'Just Deserts' stall at the very intimate Chiswick Farmers Market... This guy really knows how to make a spectacular tart! Yesterday I went a bit over-board and bought three, one raspberry, one fig and one lemon.

You can see why I couldn't resist non? I forgot to take a pic of the tarts at home, too busy tasting! But this little piece of fig tart was saved for a few hours before it was devoured!

  1. I discovered your blog a few days ago and I have to just say - I love it! So much so that I've got very little done while I read all your archives. Can't wait to read more! :)
