Sweet and savory, the more than 70 recipes in this compact book include tarts and all their topless kindred from many countries. And, as amply demonstrated here, they can be consumed at any meal from breakfast to supper to anytime snack.
Using a variety of pastries, most commonly shortcrust, puff, or filo, food stylist and writer Pip Spence introduces you to the pleasures of Portguese pastéis de nata, a custardy egg tart that's wonderful at breakfast. Or perhaps you'll prefer a more rustic granola and fruit tart, made easier because you can bake the shells the night before. Quiche Lorraine is here, as is a spiced lamb and eggplant tart. And so too are a wide range of sweet tarts, from the stalwart British Bakewell tart to Canadian butter tarts and the intriguing South African spiced melktart.
Fun and smart.
